Whats a good tire?

I have a crappy set of 31/10.5/15 on my truck and I need something that rides smoothly and maybe smaller to. I dont need mud tires in San Diego. So a good street tire or AT. Thanks

AT tires around here are usually Pro Comp or BFG A/T, both are probably the most popular. Other wise you could get like a Long Trail or something from BFG. Unless by street you ment like performance wise, then it all depends on how much side wall u want.

if you want something smaller go with a 30X9.50X15. and if you're looking for a smooth ride i would suggest the michelin ltx ms you won't find anything that rides smoother.

I checked out my new 35'' Nitto Terra Grapplers today and they look sooooo badass. Crazy tread pattern.

i have the 30X9.5X15 BFG A/T.... excellent choice, quiet on the road, and decent if you are to do mild off-roading.

So do the general grabber at2's. Basically the same tire for less price. I have never had any issues with my grabbers and they have about 4k on them.

I purchased a set of Toyo Open Country AT tires and they are amazing (A little expensive but well worth it)

Michelin at's are a good tire. I have had mine for a while. Michelin tires are one of the best.

I have the Toyo Open Country's now and there not bad, quiet, hold the ground well, no complaints

I'm a fan of the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armors, a tough tire that grips well, and has a really strong side wall, helps a little with handling
