starting to shop for new tires, opinions?

already have a bit of an idea of what i want. but not sure if there's anything i've missed or not.

i will be going with a true 35 for a 15" wheel

want something fairly aggressive, but with a fairly quiet ride. my xterrains aren't bad now, but i think i want something a bit more "refined" now.

suggestions?

w/ links if possible :)

Firestone Destination M/T's . . .

Love mine.

EDIT - Nevermind, not in 35" for 15" wheels, sorry!

You must purposely ignore the discussions about KM2s then, as well as about every review about them online. lol

Remember Ty is a bro. That means something. His truck doesn't get wheeled. It just needs to look like it does but still have the functionality of being a mall crawler.

My neighbor has those on his F-150. They ride great and have a minor hum to them. Nothing loud. Just loud enough to let you know it's there with the windows down and the radio off.

I really love my BFG A/T's. They are great all around, but they aren't extremely aggressive tires you know. I love mine though!

lol i will wheel my truck again when its geared correctly FYI

and in no way shape or form am I a bro! hate those fvckin *******s lol


and i want the nitto terra grappler but i dont think they're made for a 15" wheel

and i only say true 35 because my 315/75/16's don't equal a 35 lol.

and i have heard the reviews about the km2's, but never really seen anything about how they are after they get worn a bit..

oh and BFG at's are great and last a long time, but those aren't nearly aggressive enough i'm thinkin..

You're right, but he obviously has alot of money to spend so he should spend it.

IMO those tires with a 17in rim would look amazing.

Sissy boy. LOL My ride pretty decent. How much air do you have in your tires? I'm only running about 30-32 in mine.

30 in the fronts 25 in the rear

and that itself helped a great deal, but short of upgrading the shocks i'd like to at least achieve a bit better of a ride.

also definitely don't want a directional tire. lol
