What tires would you run?

If money had no affect on your decision, what tires would you run for your ranger?

What about on your budget?

Im not getting new tires so i donít need any opinions im just wondering what you guys like

I like my MTRs but I'm open to most tires. Just not anything with BFG on the side.

Depends, I love my Michelin LTX M/S tires, but they aren't offroad tires so allot of people don't like them. If you need a good snow / all season tire that rides execellent and is wisper quiet, this would be my Choice.

MT/R's are great tires, everyone I know who has them loves them, but then again they all off road....

General Grabbers A/T 2's.. lol first tires i ever bough for my truck..(first truck).. they look like the BFG's but to me they are wider looking???? dont know but they are awesome for rain onroad dirt roads not so much as mud because they are an all terrain tire and most importantly they last a LONG time..

Boggers or Super Swampers. Just love the aggresive look they give trucks. They suck on the road.... but I can deal with that.

For smoothness, and long tread life go with the Michelin LTX M/S's.

Presently, money shouldn't have any effect. Logic dictates the ONLY part of our vehicals ( including bicycles, motor bikes, ATV's.. ) that touches the ground are our tires. Next to brakes, its the most important part.

I use ' All seasoned ' type of tires in the winter or a dedicated set of snows. In the summer, I run street or a biased-ply radial.

What budget.. our safety? Our lives? or just money?

If you speak of just money, it would always be whatever is cheapest to most. I use BFGoodrich KDW's or Eagle RS/A's.

I LOVE F1's! But they are the sux0rz in the snow.

Most will reply with an ' offroad ' type tire, yet 90% or more of their driving is done on pavement. Its a fashon statement more then a practicallity one for MOST.

BFG Baja T/A... just so I could say I owned a set of $400 a piece meats.



Really though, I'm very satisfied with the BFG A/T's... Probably continue to shoe the truck with them... that or the M/T.

I had F1's on my trans am and I must say, they really are a great tire. I believe that they would suck in the snow, but since I didn't drive the car in it, I have zero complaints.....
