I Need new tires...Please help me choose.

So I need new tires and I was wondering if anyone has pics of semi aggressive tread, large(Like an f150 or mud tire) tires on the stock wheel.

I love them, they work great, theyre quite on the freeway, and they were cheap!

Dont flame me here, but If I could get another set of RT/S's on a set of stock rims for cheap, I would love them. They are great on the freeway, as long as its dry. Great for road trips and saves the A/T's

I have BFG A/T's on my truck. Mine are 32's which is a little larger than stock, but the tread is fairly aggressive and handles well in almost everything Mine are not on stock wheels, but the came stock on the FX4's.

Generals AT's are a very good tire and a nice price. Nitto's 265/75/16 are $120.00 or less on web sites. I run those and have had no problems in sand, snow or mud.

I disagree, the Duelers are a much less agressive tread, they wouldn't be able to keep up. BFGs FTW

Revos suck more then your girlfriend. Me and my neighbor went and played around one day and I had my stock RT/S's and I has doing better then him.

Dont hop on the bad wagon and over pay for BFG A/T's . On discounttires.com you can get Kumho M/T's for cheaper and they will get you through alot more. BFG's = LAME.

Duelers Suck A$$. Complete waste of money. I bought them and regreted it the minute I hit the trail. I'm on my 3rd set of BFG AT. I love them. Solid tire all around.

Ok my next question...I have an XL Striped Model with those ugly steel wheels.. And instead of off-roed wheels I really like the factory 5 spokes. Is there a place i can get Oem wheels or are there any rims that resemble them?

I've seen them on eBay. If you go to the dealer your going to pay an arm and a leg. Other then that just have to look around.
