i need new tires

i got 4 new winter force tires 2 years ago now there pretty much bald. there nice tires but i dont think they should have worn that fast. idk if it cause there bad tires or to big of tread for what i use it for. i want a good all purpours tire. can handle snow and light off roading(muddy trail, or wet grass type of stuff) something around teh size of 235 or what ever i got on there.

I loved my NittoTerra Grapplers. They are priced right too.

Bfg all terrain hands down. Theres a reason it comes stock on a fx4 level 2 and the fordraptor. I love mine. I had a set of235 bfg, loved them. My 2wd could go anywhere.

As for you old tires wearing down, they are for winter use, im surprised they lasted 2 years.

Another vote for the Duratracs.... and like mentioned above those Winterforce tires are meant for snow and cold temps which is why they wore out so fast!

I second this but I didn't post it up because I don't think they make them in a 235.

I thought the stock 16" size was 255?
either way, BFG All-Terrains.

BFG AT suck in snow, at least they do up here where we get real snow and ice lol

you definately want DURATRACS.
you will not ever regret getting this tire.
it will never leave you wishing for more in snow, ice, etc. my brothers 2wd chevy with duratracs does better on straight ice than his friends 4x4 with BFG AT/s

I've ran BFG's ever since i've had a truck. I've had them last almost 70k miles.
they are excellent in the Michigan winter, and do reasonably well off road.

Maybe try some TreadWrights?

Here's a link to their site. https://www.treadwright.com/default.aspx

They have BFG AT KO knockoffs, that are better in terms of winter traction due to the crushed glass and walnut shells that they mix in with the rubber for the tread. Obviously the tread wears a little faster than your standard BFG, but you pay a bit less anyhow.

From what I've read, lots of folks have had good experiences with the tires, and with customer service.

Compare the price... the price of a BFG AT KO at about 150 a tire, while a TreadWright Warden AT with the same pattern goes for about 100 a tire. That's 200 bucks in savings right there.

Or some Super Swamper Trxus STS. Them buggers are expensive, though.

And no, I am not a tire saleman. Just throwing some options out there.

If you like running the BFG's, then go ahead and get them. Nothing wrong with them.

I finally installed the new Cooper ATPs. Haven't tested them in the mud yet but so far the best of the many different A/Ts I have had. Good price too.
