Cody's finally getting tires :-D

we have some choices...

1) BFG Mud-Terrain KM2s (245/75R16) @ $195 each

2) BFG All-Terrains (265/75R16 or 70 series) @ $172 each

3) Goodyear Wrangler MT/R (255/70R16) @ $149 each

4) ADD TIRE OPINIONS


-------
***what I kinda wanna know is what comes stock on the 4x4 rangers like the level IIs I need tire specs so when I go in next week I know what to order...

Since you never go off-road I'd go with the BFG A/T's or a set of MasterCraft Courser AT's. Both are good tires, BFG's just look more aggressive.

why do you need at/mt tires if your truck is a mall crawler?

Yeah stick with a AT. Nitto Terra Grappler would be my vote. Looks good, rides good and performs good. In a 265/75/16 too

Do you go or plan to go offroading alot? If not, I'd go with an AT tire. I really liked my BFG All-Terrain's.

tell me about it 235s

I'm really leaning towards the A/Ts because I can get a bigger set for less money and they look really good...

these are 265s

Get the 265's, they will look solid. There are alot of guys that run that tire on a stock truck.

The A/T for sure.

Just for other options I have Toyo A/T Open Country on my truck. The ride is smooth and its pulled me out of a few rutted back country roads. I payed 135 for em on sale
