Tires

Hey guys,

Soon I will be looking to get my hands on some new tires. I currently have 285/75/16's on my '97 F250. Looking to get my hands on some good M/T or aggressive A/T. What do you guys run in that range and how do you like them?

I have a D60 swap in the works and am trying to track down stuff for the SD spring swap so I will eventually be going to a 315/75/16 tire so what do you guys run in that size? And how do you like it?

Thanks for all the input(hopefully)!
Charlie

My truck came with 285/75/16 Mastercraft Courser MT's on it. I've never heard of them before, but IMO they are a good tire. They don't seem to be wearing quickly, they look great, aren't super loud, and have pretty good traction. Best of all, they are pretty cheap for a tire this size. When i replace these i will most likely get the same things. Now they aren't the best tire out there, or close to it, but for the price i think they are a great tire.

35s are good, but if you wanna step up to 37 you can get military surplus for cheap.
35s might run ya close to $200 per, 37" Goodyear HMMV tires will run ya around $70 per

I want to eventually go to a 17" wheel. But thats not in the budget right now. Wish I could find a local used set of wheels and tires. I'd be set!

After doing a 12 mo deployment with these tires I have learned to hate them with a passion. Junk tires IMO.
