New Tires

Hey guys. Im not sure if there already was a discussion about this but i ill post a new one. I have a 2011 f350 and was looking to get new tires. I was thinking of going with 35s because i hear 37s will rub. I had cooper discoverer AT3s on my old truck and loved them but i thought i wouldcheck out what everyone else is running. I use my truck mostly on the street so i want something that doesn't make too much road noise and will give me good traction both on road for some fun around town and off road or in the snow. I was also hoping to get something that i wouldn't need to replace in a year. Im stock suspension right now but looking to get a lift in about a year or so. Any suggestions would be very helpful thanks guys.

Check out the new Toyo open country at2. They are a little more aggressive looking than the original at's and get great mileage. We have BFG all terrain k/o on our hummer that are nice too.

What brand of lift do you have and what tires are those they look good. Truck looks great!

It's not mine bud, but I love the stance of it. It has a 2.5" coil spring spacer with a 1" under the bucket spacer the rear has a single 5" block. Tires are 37" nitto's, wheels are 20x9's I wanna say. No rubs, no issues!

I run Goodyear wrangler duratracs. Great tire and winter rated but can't comment on the mileage yet. Pulled me through some decently sloppy mud and a lot of snow so far without any problems. Quite on the highway, light weight so they don't kill your fuel mileage completely. Currently have 275/70r18 duratracs now but once they wear out ill be getting some 35" duratracs to replace them with.

Hey Randy, do you have any pictures of the duratracs on? I have been running them on my F150 and love the tire but I was disappointed they didn't offer a bigger size in the 18". I have a new truck (F350) on order and want to see if they look small in stock size on a suepr duty.

Thanks.

Savage250 I don't have any good pictures right now and my dad has my truck in another town currently so it might be a few days before I can get a good picture. I do have one picture from the day I got it where you can kind of see the relative size of the tires compared to the truck. I can't quite remember how to post pictures so if you can't see anything let me know

Those look great! I was afraid they would look too small like the stock michelens do, but they actually fill it out quite well.

Thanks for posting the picture, I think I'm good to put stock size on.

I do wish they made a duratrac in 285/75/R18 though.

I do agree with you on the 285/75r18. after running a 325/65r18 bf Goodrich at through last winter on my old f150 I refuse to buy anything that wide again for the winter along with being very sceptical to ever buy bfg at's again.
