Nitto 420 or other street tire

Anybody running the nitto 420 or a similar tire? I'm thinking about getting a set for daily driving and having my Toyos for pulling. Also any pics would be nice.

On a ranger or s10 (if you consider those trucks...) but not on anything close to a real truck.

No, there are people out there that run them on their street/track trucks. depending on the size, some of them are rated for 3,000+lbs. Although I wouldn't go loading one down, a lot of street tires should be perfectly fine for a daily driver.

I knew I wasn't crazy lol. And I wouldn't load them down I'm just looking for a cheaper tire to daily drive and screw around with so I'm not burning up my open country's.

No, you are not crazy. I think the most common size, or really the only size that I can think of, that I have seen run are the 305/50-20.

I have never seen passenger rated tires on a 3/4 ton or bigger truck. It makes sense for track trucks to use them.

I still don't see any sort of real savings with using a 2nd set of cheaper tires. The time involved switching them out, and the cost of a second set of wheels...

I wonder if Discount tire would even mount them for ya?

Shaking my head at this.... This is old news on PSA. Plenty of people are running Toyo Proxes and Nitto 420s tires on their truck. Most are running them on 20x12's.
