Tires???

My 08 has been ordered, due in March My 8" lift has been ordered be here end of January , 22's coming as soon as I decide on a set - QUESTION I have is -- What do you all suggest as being the Best Looking/Best Riding Tire out there - I have the Nitto Terra Grapplers which I like but I have seen some other great looking tires so maybe time for a change... So what All Terrain tire do you all like or a Mud Terrain that isnt loud as hell - lol
Thanks for the input

I love how the Kumho's look! I wonder how the ride quality on the street is and noise level??

A friend of mine had 38x14.5x20's of both the kuhmo and the toyo and he said that the kuhmo's rode better and were quieter ! I have 35x12.5x 20 toyo mt's on my 2006 f-250 and they are quiet for a mud tire you still get some tire noise its not like a passenger car tire quiet but its not annoying and it give a really nice ride. I would say that both of them are really good choices for a big tire. I would definitely stay away from the nitto mud terrains they are loud, ride like [email protected], and wear out fast !!

I heard through the grapevine that they were I really think it would be a good move for them. I would definitely buy a set :Thumbup:

How are those Kumho's at over 85MPH? :-) - My other ride is a 2003 Cobra w/ 719 RWHP so I like to speed - lol
Damn those Kumho's look nice!

My Toyo MT's have gotten much louder as they get down near the end of their lifespan.
