Every track is different. I have seen a lot of trucks run aggressive tread AT's with success.

I'd say less is more when you start gettin some power to the ground. Tracks vary quite a bit, and aggressive tires break stuff.

I think an A/T with a deep pattern works very well on any truck.

not only aggressive tread breaks things but taller tires are very hard on drivelines

Run your stock 20's. MT's are just too much. If you've ever watched pulls before you'll notice that just about every truck runs either a BFG AT, Truxus STS, or similar AT tire. The less HP you have the less aggressive tire you need IMHO. Less traction off the line can translate in to more wheel speed further down when the weight hits = greater distance.

Yea, I think the Toyo AT's (from experience) are good and I see a lot of guy with the Nitto Dune Grappler's on their pulling trucks.

Do you know what the track is like? Here in GA, the track is really hard. That is where stuff can get broken with an MT tire.

I run dune grapplers. On a loose track you have to ease off the line or you blow your tires off. They still grab pretty good, even when spinning hard though.

I love 'em for everything else.

Ive seen good success out of the procomp mt's and the Mickey baja claws but thats been on softer tracks. As stated many times above the track and terrain is the most important deciding factor on which tire to use.

Ford F250 6.4 CC/SB, Spartan 350 w/TCM, Mag-Hytec deep pan, Flo-Pro 5 inch Exhaust, AFE stage 2 with ProDRy, 2.5 Readylift, ZEX Nitrous single stage, BD CAC pipe, ATS 5-star converter, elite egr delete/wastegate, ts mp-8 stacked, Procomp traction bars, locker, CFM plenum, ARP studs. Innovative tunes and Suncoast on the way!
