Default Best Wearing Tire

After some research I think I've figured out the lift in going to put on my truck. However I'm now shopping for wheels and tires. I'm finding mixed reviews on about every tire out there. What do you guys think is the best wearing tire as far as mileage is concerned? I'm looking in the 35 inch range on 20 inch wheels. Thank for the help.

You can easily get 60,000 miles out of the BFG AT KO's with normal care.

^^^^ Been reading about people having issues with the BFGs after 20k, going out of round, cant balance etc, no idea if its true. But the biggest part you left out is are you wanting a AT, MT tire etc?? Basically all the nittos will give you that milage aslong as you rotate them and stay on top of your alignment etc, also there sister company toyo

higher the wear number, the harder the tire is (lasts longer)

My TBSS has soft 220 tread wear, so 35K miles is about it.

Hands down the best wearing tire I had were my BFG AT KO's, I put 40k on them and they are still going strong on my old Dakota as my Dad now has the old girl.

I really like the look of MT tires but I don't plan on going off road except when necessary. So I guess AT tires would be the way to go.

One of the problems I've been reading about is that the lift combination I want to do is that I'll have to run spacers up front to clear everything with the BF Goodrich tires (325/60) bc they don't make a high flotation 35 inch for 20s.

I'm not sure why BFG and a lot of companies use the metric sizing for their AT tires but not their MT's. The 325/60-20 AT KO is essentially a 35x13.00-20 tire. You shouldn't need spacers if you are running a wheel with the correct backspacing.
I've had several sets of BFG AT KO with no issues. However, I did have one set of 35's that I purchased used from a "friend" because they were supposedly a "deal" (they were a size too large for a truck he purchased). Two of those had a defect and would cause a steering wheel shimmy at 60 mph when they were rotated to the front of my truck. Lesson learned, never buy a set of used tires!

I have purchased several sets of the BF Goodrich AT KO tires in the past and always got about 75,000km of wear out of them. Nice tires.
