Off Road Tires

Soo its about time to open up the ole check book and invest in some new rubbers (for the truck) I was wonderin if anyone had some opinons on some good tires. I dont need anything insane, i do mostly road driving but i do get off the road quiete a bit and when i get in the mud i wanna GO, right now i've got 285/75/16 Nitto Terra Grapplers. i like em but there off road capabilities arent all that great when the mud gets a little deep.. Im lookin at Nitto Trail Grapplers, they look like a good off road tire. Any opinions on those or any other tire? And as always im lookin for a good buy, i dont have 1,000 dollars to throw into Mickey Thompsons or something, i paid 620 for my Nittos and if i can i'd like to stay somewhere in that price range.

Thanks for all the help. When in doubt, turn to the Org. haha

I had luck with BFG M/Ts that's the first set of mud tires I bought for my truck after those wore out I got these worthless POS toyo M/Ts good on road as far as road noise as far as mud and snow they are the worst M/Ts I have had they are more for the lifted pavement pounder club. Thought about tryin out the mud grapplers once I wear these out that or go back to BFGs.

I've run BFG M/T's on a different truck and loved them. They air down great for sand and I got a 50,000 + miles out of them. They did OK in the snow, but then again when you deal with a wide tire in the snow it's kinda given.

My tires are 315/75/16 and I paid around 250/each. I know they dont make many sizes for the 16 in rim, but these were about the only tires I found that had an e load range. I had a set of KM2s before and they did pretty good. I took them off after 25k but they still had half tread.

Im running a set of Fierce MT's on my truck and I really like them, this is the 2nd truck ive had this set of tires on and they have been great off road. Ive got $180 apiece in these tires mouted and balanced. they ride good and didnt take a ton of weigt to balance. the only ***** i have about them is they are LOUD going down the road.
I had planned on replacing them with some BFG KM2s but Im on track to get prob 35-40k out of these and if they do that i might go back to a set of them instead.
