What type of tires?

So pretty soon i'll be adding a 3" spindle lift to my truck and I know that keeping stock tires would make it look silly and i'll prolly get 33s but what type should i get...i'm def not going to be going offroading but what could give me the best traction possible for winter since my trucks 2wd?

Super Swampers! Seriously though if you want good winter traction its gonna have to be a A/T. I like my Nitto Terra Grapplers alot or you can get the BFG.

An A/T is going to perform the best by far in the snow/bad road conditions. As for which one, i always recomend the BFG AllTerrain T/A KOs

Yep. Adding weight with whatever will help alot with your traction.

it doesnt have to be bags of salt, but what ever you get, make sure its secure because its a lot of weight lol..

i have heard nothing buy good things about the Nitto ATs and BFG ATs in the snow.. then again you could get some MTZs, or Toyo MTs that have siping so they do better than normal mud terrains

Which ones would be the least expensive BFG? Cause just by the name of the others (Nitto Terra Grapplers) makes it sound expensive haha

Shop around! I love when people use the "i dont want BFGs because they're too damn expensive" excuse. I ended up paying $250 less then my original quotes on both sets of my BFGs by taking a couple days calling all the tire places, going online, and making them beat eachothers prices.


On a side note there are quite a few people on here who are running the General Grabber AT2 and seem to like them.
