Need Advise on Tires

Im planning on getting some new tires for my 99 CCLB truck with 4-6" of lift. Right now i have 305/75/18 BFG A/T Load E and they look tiny so im looking to move up to a 37" M/T tire for my new set. Any recommendations on what to get? I dont haul huge loads very much just drive alot. I was eaither thinkin Toyo M/T, BFG KM2, or Mickey Thompson MTZ.

I had awesome luck with my 35" BFG KMs on my jeep wrangler. I loved them. I had about 50,000 miles on them with alot of tread left.

2013 F250 Lariat 4x4 Loaded. H&S mini maxx, 5" exhaust, S&B intake, and EGR delete, AMP steps, tonneau cover

2011 F150 Ecoboost FX4 Screw. All stock except for a livernois Tuner. SOLD!

Early 99 CCLB Pro comp 6.5" lift w 18" hulk wheels wrapped in 37" KM2s, Amp steps, Straight pipe, AIS intake, Dp Tuner, isspro gauges (boost,trans,pyro), 05 front clip, traction bars, 6.0L trans cooler, built trans.SOLD!!

I'm running my second set of Pro-Comp Xtreme A/T's and couldn't be happier with them. Great traction, pretty quiet, and dependable. I bought my first set for $1250 and my second set for $500. If you watch Ebay, blems will pop up every now and then for super cheap. $500 included shipping. I've had them for about 6 months now with no problems, they just required a little extra weight to balance.

I have great luck THUS far with my Toyos, but Im moving into a 38x14x24 kuhmo road venture....heard NOTHING BUT GOOD THINGS ABOUT THEM....if you're running 18's they're pretty cheap for you too! another good tire is the MT baja ATZ, have alot of friends running them with GREAT RESULTS....I'd say go Kuhmo for the look you want though.

ive had nitto terra grapplers and now have BFG AT. I like the BFGs better. Just make sure you get Load Range E since you haul alot. I have buddies that run Load Range D's but all i run is E's so they will handle the weight

Check out the new nitto mud tire. Its not the mud grappler they are crap but the new trail grappler m/t is a good lookin tire. The guy that owns a local off road shop here in wilson nc has got a set on his 09 f250. I've had the micky thompson mtz and they look good but wore out fast maybe 20,000 miles. the bfg's are nice but over priced for an all terrain. Ive had 2 sets of the nitto terra grapplers and personnaly ill never buy another all terrain other than nitto they last longer than bfg and ride better too. Thats my 2 cents.

Well, we all know what opinions are like, but I'm not sure how you can say the mud grappler is "crap", I just replaced a set of BFG KM2's with the Mud Grappler and they WAY out preform the BFG's in every way except mileage and noise. Anyway, more to the topic at hand...

Out of the tires that the OP listed, depending on how much offroad driving you do I would go with either the BFG or the Toyo's. As mentioned above, the new Nitto Trail Grappler looks pretty appealing too, but not too many people have any experience with them. The MTZ's don't get very good traction and they wear a bit quicker. The BFG's seem to be a little better off road, but the Toyo's probably last a bit longer. Good luck.

Ok sorry bout the crap comment ive had alot of dealings with off road tires and just never heard anybody say they really over all loved those mud grapplers! As far as the new nittos they are brand new and the owner of that offroad shop said he loves them so far. also 99psd-white said he does alot of driving so i was just thinkin road friendy with decent performance. Like you said everybody has opinions.

OH by the way Happy Thanksgiving to everybody!
