I'm gonna order a set of new tires and would like yalls opinion. I'm gonna go with a 35x12.5r20 or a 325/60/20 mud terrain. I've got a few ideas so far... Tell me which one you like the best. Oh yeah, almost forgot... If anybody can find a 35" Interco M16 I would greatly appreciate it, I can't find one...

1. Kumho Road Venture MT KL71
2. Nitto Trail Grappler
3. Nitto Mud Grappler
4. Hercules Trail Digger M/T
5. Toyo Open Country M/T
6. My personal fav. but hard to find, Interco M16


Heres some pics in order as the list.

They all look good and very aggressive. The real question is which one is going to do the job you intend for it and also give you the best ride/handling on normal roads. For me, the really aggressive tires make more noise going down the road than I want to hear for the rare occasions I'd be out playing.

They'll also kill your mpg. Now if you have the $$, I'd get some really aggressive tires that you can toss in the garage for when you're going to play and keep good regular tires on the truck the rest of the time. Kind of a pain to have two sets of tires and wheels, but it would give you the best of both worlds. :D

I already have 35s, so the mpg is already down. My exhaust is LOUD so the noise won't bother me... I need one that will keep tread the longest, I currently have the Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ and they don't keep tread very well.. So I definitely want something that will last

Trail Grapplers or Toyo Open Country MT's. The mud grapplers are the most aggressive of the bunch. I run them now but they are louder than your exhaust. I have a dynomated interior infinity kappa speakers, mtx four channel amp, 2 10" mtx subs and a mtx mono block amp. I have to turn it up quite a bit for it to drown out the tire noise.

From a mileage standpoint I would recommend the Coopers or the Toyos. Just don't get a Cooper Discoverer STT...they suck and constantly need to be balanced. I've gotten best service out of Toyos but they are a bit more expensive.

I too like the M16 tires. they are not too expensive and they look really cool. I like the little M16s on the sidewall. I would either go with those or the trail grapplers

Nitto trail Grapplers hands down. Nothing even comes close in my opinion. They are the quietest off road tire available.

depending on what you're using them for, the goodyear duratracks are pretty good in snow,mud,etc, come in whatever size you'd like and you'll get roughly 40000 miles out of them if you rotate on every oil change. not sure if this is great milage but for a rugged tire i would imagine its fairly good. hope this helps

I'd go with the Nitto Trail Grapplers.
One of the pluses is they have a really aggressive sidewall, which I think adds a whole lot to the look of your truck.
I won't go with the Muds unless you literally spend 75% of your time off road.
The Trails are much better tires on road, and will still get the job done off the road.
