Gettin new tires

Thinking about Fierce Attitude MT's. Going with 285-75/16. What about Duratracs in that size? I have read about the Fierce tires resisting cuts from rock roads. My cooper atr's are cut and chopped to hell from my rock road. Open to suggestion....oh yea only have $900 for tires. Thanks!

You may want to take a peek at the courser C/Ts from Mastercraft, After about 15k miles on my half-ton they still look brand spankin' new. They arent technically a "mud tire", but the tread is pretty aggressive, especially the side lugs.

Treadwrights - I've gone through 2 sets, bro just put a set of 285's on his 06 Cummins and had a set on his 07 Silverado.

I cannot say enough good about their customer service. Top notch, great quality, and for $500 for a set of tires shipped (running stock sized 265's here, for now) I cannot complain. I put 4-7K miles on my truck per month, have towed my 24' enclosed race trailer loaded down 2000 miles round trip. Yeah, they're retreads, but I haven't had any issues and mine beat down oil field roads all the time, messed up, nasty, rocky roads...

If you dont want to get raped on tire prices, its the only way to go IMO.

Spend the money you save on other mods! Or send it to me as a thank you for turning you on to Treadwright, lol. Order them, I doubt you'll be disappointed.

If you spend a lot of time on gravel roads. I'd look into the Toyo M55. One of the few tires that seem to really hold up on loose gravel roads. They are almost a commercial tire.

Duratracs are soft, they'd get chewed up by rocks.

Never run Fierce before, and the Mastercraft and Treadrights aren't sold in Canada to my knowledge, so never seen them.

No problem... and I can't be certain how many miles I've got out of mine. I was running so hard this summer for work I literally didn't get to rotate one set and wore the backs out faster than the fronts (I run with all my tools in the bed of my truck).

Then, immediately after I replaced those, my front ball joints went and I was running for a week non-stop on bad joints. Chewed up the inside of the front tires (just my luck). I'd imagine I could easily get 45K out of a set if I regularly rotated them and was able to keep my truck legit long enough to run a set.

The way I look at it is like this. I go through 2 sets of tires per year (if nothing happens out of the norm to either set). That's $1000/year for tires through treadwright. It's be $2200 - $2500 with another brand. You get to pick the carcass when you order if you want to (just tell them, they'll make it happen). The Warden pattern is similar to the BFG All Terrain (the carcasses I choose to run). Now, hopefully when I order a new pair for the front here in the next week - my truck and time will cooperate so I can rotate them and nothing out of the norm happens to them.

Also, I'm glad when the balljoints went I was running these. It would have been $600 in tires vs the $250 that it is going to cost to replace them now.

Thanks ProOnThaSnow! Never heard of these before and man that will save me a ton! Bad news is the money saved won't go into other mods. But it will get me closer to building my barn/shop!
