I'm a die hard BFG fan,

So I'll suggest BFG's lol. Either Km2's or their All-Terrains.

If you want an all-terrain with a mud-terrain look... go with the goodyear duratracs.. they look sweet.

I say for a mild mud-terrain or aggressive all-terrain the Duratrac is the best.

MTZ and KM2s are great to but they are more aggressive so it just depends on how much off road you will actually be seeing. And price of course.

I would get a quote for all three and go with the cheapest one, there are all equaling good.

Go with 285/70/17... That's what my friend has on his truck and they look great and don't rub.
