not for any serious offroad use or anytyhing but more for the occasoinal play in the mud
i dont really like bfg a/t or i'd just buy those
im looking more for something else
ride noise isnt a huge concern but i dont want super loud tires, and size would be no b igger then 285x?x16

the nitto mud grappler is the best tire out there right now. balance and wear is beautiful. it is also a great looking tire in person. i run the bfg muds (35x12.50x17) and so does my dad. they are a good tire. i am going to go to the nitto muds though in about a month or two. the only other tire i would consider is the interco iroks. as for an all terrain, pro comp has a decent one, nitto makes a great one, bf makes a great one, and interco has one as well (traxus).

i'm a huge offroad fan as well, just don't have the funds to really get into the hobby!

but nitto makes some ******* tires, and so does mt. i saw these new nitto tires in this magizine i got recently, the dune grapplers; the tread looks insane

Micky Thompsons are garbage. the dune grappler isnt a good tire at all for the street.

no no lift or rims
stock 16s on a 2000 tahoe

i saw those coopper stt's eralier and kinda like them, and bri487 not sure what would be better for me. i'd assume a/t as a daily driver but if m/t work then i guess it doesnt really matter. what i really wanted was the bridgestone dueler m/t, but i guess they dont make those anymore

that bridgestone should have been on a minivan the way it performed. dont mess with cooper. when it comes to a truck tire, at the moment, i would go with nitto, BFG, interco. the nitto terra grappler i think is the best choice for you. it is the all terrain tire from them. good tire. nitto also has the best mud on the market right now. hopefully they stay on top.

i was thinking about going 37x12.50x17, but that means i have to go up another inch, in which i dont want to.

i was just about to say i liked the way the terra grappler's look

we had the dueler's on a f350 we used as a ranch trucka few years back and they never failed, went through some pretty nasty shiit in them:naughty:
i think the nittos will be the way i go though

I have 3 lifted rigs in my stable right now.

My prerunner has 35x12.50x15 BFG KM Mud Terrains (Love them)
My 95 Tahoe has 35x12.50x15 Pro Comp A/T's (Balance like **** but good wear)
My 01 Z71 has 315x75x16 (35x12.50x16 equivelent)Wildcat EXT Muds. (Best **** tire i have ever owned) Smooth as silk, almost no weights to balance and kick *** in any terrain.

just put the stock size back on it. you will have issues with them rubbing the the rear of the front fender well if you go any bigger.


as for the guys talking about trucks, mine is a 2005 Silverado ext cab z71

6-7.5" superlift
changed front keyways
cranked the torsion bars
smittybuilt steps
superchips programmer
volant intake
17" Weld Evo Velocity rims
35"x12.50x17" BFG muds
escalade door handles
escalade tow hooks
billet bow tie and shorty black antenna
2 chamber 40 series flowmaster
windows tinted all the way around
you know about the system and alarm
there is more but i cant remember

soon to come...
whipple supercharger and beefed up tranny with a dynatrac dana 60
4.56 gears, maybe 4.10
arb lockers in the front and rear

these are old pics. i was going to sell it at the time. only visable diff is i took the front end up another inch since the pic was taken.
