Wheels and Tires

Ok time to get some new wheels and tires. I was looking at getting mickey thompson classic locks or classics and pro-comp all terrains. Any recommendations on wheel and tire size.

I was thinking 17x9 wheel and 305/75/17. good idea or not?

That will look good. Classic Locks are sweet. I have 16.5x9.5 Ultra 164s (which are like MT classics just w/ slightly smaller holes) w/ 35x12.5 BFG M/Ts. Ill get some pics in a minute.

Have you thought about the Xtreme all-terrains? I like them a little better, but both are good. I'm also a fan of coopet S/T's I had a set and they were great.

I have thought about the extreme terrains. Do you know how long they last I'm looking more for miles out of them than how they look.

A guy in Diesel Power Mag had some on an 01 that he said got 32000 out of his w/ lots of racing and burnouts.
When I sold my coopers they had 10K on them and that was about a year and a half ago and the guy still runs the same set on his 02, Its his daily driver and a tow rig so I can only imagine the # of miles.

Heres a pic of mine,by the way I paid $250 total for the 4 almost new tires and a brand new spare.

I was going to get the pro comp a/t but our local tire shop had some a/t 285a new for $106 which i couldn't turn down, and your wise not putting mud tires on a diesel. I had an stock 89 dodge diesel auto and had mud tires on it and i got prob around 10,000 out of them, and your truck being a manual and going to hop er up i would cut that mileage down alot more. but mud tires do make the truck look alot better.

When I first got my 02 I just put a set of 315/75R16 Mastercraft MT's on, I got about 30,000 miles out of them, I thought they were really good tires. After those were gone I decided I needed some new rims, put a set of 17x9's on with 35x12.50R17 Cooper STT, and once again I am kicking right around the 30,000 mile mark with them. I would put all terrains on but they throw way too many rocks for me, I run only mud tires on mine so it doesn't throw so many rocks on my truck.
Best of luck with your decision on what to put on, every truck looks better with some nice tires and rims.:Thumbup:

I've been running BFG mud terrians for about 40k now and I'm happy with them. They probably only have another 10k or so left on em, but I really can't complain. They are 285/75/16. I definitely like the look of those wheels though k20's. Thats a pretty sweet truck you've got there.

Are the mud terrains noisy on the highway? They look like they would be and I don't want that.

Well, it just depends on what you're used to. I don't really notice them that much anymore. Thinking about it, they are kinda loud. My brother has Copper discoverers or something like that on his truck, they are far less aggressive but much quiter. On the other hand, My friend used to have 40" boggers on his 6.0L and those were crazy loud, they made my mud terrains seem like nothing. It seems like they've gotten louder as they have worn though. I used to hear my FASS over them, but not anymore, and I know its running.
