Tire help!!!

Hey guys, I'm starting to look around for new tires when I get my rcd and bl on I'm gonna get 35x 12.5 but I wanna know from others experence what's tires are good. I'm looking for something that's good with snow, dirt/mud and has a good hum to it. I do not want all terrians cause I have them on my 33's and they don't do it for me... I used to have the procomp xterrians but they wore down really fast. I was thinking the nitto grapplers or whatever they are called .... Any thoughts?

I don't mind what it's like on the road. If the ride is rough and loud that would be best. For some reason I don't like a smooth ride, I get car sick hahaha so mtz will do this??

Not many have the Grapplers on here.

KM2s would fit the bill, mine did great in snow. Max i've been in is about a foot though

Mine have gotten pretty loud with 15,000 miles on them. You can easily hear them with the windows up going 50mph.

Now they aren't as loud as swampers or the grapplers but you'll hear them. I wouldn't say they were redneck loud if thats what you were going for lol

Well it's between the km2's and the grapplers ... I like what I'm hearing about the km2's but i also love the look of the grapplers... I really wanna find the truck on here with the grapplers, I think it was white with a double lift?? Not sure I forget

As for the redneck loud, haha well all my friends have full size trucks lifted and loud exhaust so I have to make up for something!

From what it sounds like I think you would like the grapplers better, they're more aggressive than the km2s. I'm not sure on how long they will last though

I know a guy who had the grapplers on his excursion and they lasted a good while, he even drove it to and from california but then he sold it and the tires had a good amount of tread. I'm gonna be buying them out at the bloomsburg truck show this year so hopefully I get a good deal on either of the tires
