Need opinions on new tires...

Hey guys. I'm in the market for some new rubber for the 350. I don't do very much offroading but occasionally I will go there. So I'm thinking an aggressive AT will do the job. Other then the BFG AT KO, what would you guys suggest? :thanks:

I went with the BFG and like them. I tow pretty heavy sometimes and they actually have a little higher weight rating than the Goodyears that came on the truck. RIde is good and no noise that I can hear. Mine are the 20" so my options were a little limited as to weight ratings. They were expensive but I feel they were worth it.:Thumbup:

I went with the Nitto Terra Grapplers for just the reasons you stated. I'm very pleased, although with the width I got they do seem to follow the grooves in the road sometimes. But all in all they a good all around tire. I used to have to be real careful where I pulled my 5th wheel into when I went to the sand dunes, now I can drag it to pretty much any camp site.

i have always ran a mud terrain, im using the toyo right now, but i like the bfg km, but they are no longer making the km, they went to the km2, if you want the km you can still find them if you look.

Are you running the Toyo Open Country M/T? fi so, how do you like them and how long do you think they'll last?

Thanks,

I'm in the market for tires also. I tow a 33' fifth wheel sometimes so I want to stay with load range E

I had BFG's on my F150 and didn't get great wear out of them and they rode kind of rough after 20K. My buddy has an '05 F250 and his were garbage after 40K. I haven't tried Toyos yet but I am considering them. I have been looking at Michelin LTX AT2. Nice but not overly aggressive tread but they ride very smooth and quite. I have run the LTX AT's on my work truck and have gotten 70K - 80K out of all three sets. The draw back is the sizes, the biggest I can get in an 18" rim is 275 70R 18. Thats the stock size.

To get 40k out of tires on these trucks while towing in my opinion is pretty good. I have the 305 BFGs and so far they are doing pretty well, about 12000 on them and no sign of wear, and I tow work trailers, fifth wheel and a boat. Just my thoughts.

yes i'd kill for 40k miles out of a set of tires for my truck. Bfg at is a really good all terrain tire. The nitto terra grappler didn't get nearly 20k miles out of them. Plus they sucked in the mud.
