All terrain tire recs


Leaning toward Terra Grapplers in 275/65/20 but I have not completely decided on them
I'm curious as well. I'll need some new 275/55/20s in about 5000 miles

re: All terrain tire recs


They're not very popular for some reason.

Not sure why. They don't really look cool but they're fantastic tires.

re: All terrain tire recs


BTW, if you have a 3/4 ton truck, Mickey Thompson's will not work as you will need a ten ply.

That's fine with me. I priced them and some similar BF Goodrich tires and it's about $100/tire difference. As long as everyone doesn't run out and get them they'll stay cheap (hopefully). I think when my wife's high-dollar Michelins wear on her Yukon I'm switching her to some Cooper all-terrains. She'll absolutely love it.

Also, when buying any tire call Gene in Denham Springs for a quote. He will beat any price on any tire. I don't understand how, but he does.

re: All terrain tire recs


Mine will probably be wearing super swampers for its next set, so you won't have to worry about me driving the price up.

My old man has been through 4 or 5 sets on his truck and will probably be getting them again.

I have Nitto TG M/T on my current Titan, love them. If I were going with the A/T, I would get the BFG AT K/O, as I have probably had 10 sets of them on different trucks in the last 12 years, and they are bullet proof and will go anywhere. I got 71,000 miles out of a set of 285's on a Titan a few years back. I retired a Titan and lifted it, etc, and went with the Nitto M/T because it is used pretty much all off road now.

re: All terrain tire recs


The Rugged Terrains are awful imo. The are noisy and do not ride good at all. The went down hill bad at 25K miles or so. They wore very uneven.
The Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo are probably the best tire I have had. Great quiet ride.
The Open Country are pretty good, but can get loud with some miles on them.

I have some BFG rugged terrains and they are quiet! I really like them. If your tires are wearing unevenly maybe something else is wrong. Maybe you need to have your inner tire rods changed.

re: All terrain tire recs


I've had 2 sets of BFG AT KOs on 2 different trucks. They did ok in the mud, and great on the road. They weren't noisy, and the first set lasted over 50,000 miles with tread left. I got rid of them because they were 6 years old. I don't put many miles on my trucks. The 2nd set had 10,000 before I sold the truck. They rode a little stuff because I had to get the heavy ply.

I have the Zeon LTZ tires on my truck and they have been great so far. I have about 25,000 miles on them and they still look new.

Well, when I took them off, I had a set of Goodyears put on and I have had zero issues with them, so...

First thing that should be posted in the OP is what you are going to do with 20" wheels


Not sure about the OP but my new F250 came with 20x8 wheels and Michellin 275/65/20 LTX AT2 tires. Going to be a bitch to replace them. If i had my choice the truck would not have come with 20's no point IMO. Makes the tires cost more and not to mention i am not a big fan of short sidewalls.

Back to the topic. I had a set of goodyear duratracs on my last truck a chevy 2500hd and they were really aggressive and pretty damn quiet but only made it about 30-35k miles

re: All terrain tire recs


Load range (C, D, E) ratings differ depending on the manufacturer. My ATZs are rated at 3150lbs/tire. As long as you aren't towing heavy all of the time, they work perfectly fine. Towing heavy stuff heats them up and they wear faster.

The Rugged Trails on my buddy's Suburban are wearing evenly and aren't loud at all. Maybe you need to take a look at your suspension and drive train.

DownshiftAndFloorIt
Take a ride over to Rayne to get your Swampers. They sold me my two sets for the same cheap prices as in a magazine or online and put them on for free. It is amazing how small of a building and company they have over there. There isn't any signs out in front of the building, and it just looks like a medium-sized aluminum building. They also only had one floor jack, one compressor, one set of tools, and one balancing machine. I thought it was crazy when they rolled out the floor jack.

OP, I had a set of BFG ATs on a single cab Tacoma go for 85k miles. I can't remember if they were loud because my last set of ATs was 13yrs ago. I do know that my new ATZs are quiet as a mouse compared to Swampers and MTZs.

If they still made the OG BFG MTs, I would have a set. Those tires were the perfect mix of mud tire and street tire. Sadly, they wanted a new design and got rid of them. New kind only works well on rocks

re: All terrain tire recs


Bigger brakes require bigger rims. My calipers on the F250 have minimal clearance on the front between the rims and calipers
