Show me your TI#*S!!

Ok, now that i think i got everyones attention, i want to see tires, not the other thing

Its time for new tires, and Goodyear doesnt make the Duratrac in my size, so like everyone else, i need suggestions. Right now, i have 35x12.50x18 on it. I dont really care for the Nitto brand, anyone else have suggestions?

Also, i MAY be able to go a bit bigger, but not sure. I have a 99 350 CCLB 4x4 with a 4" lift. Any suggestions?

Have you looked at BFG TA KO's or the Toyo Open County TA?

And....yes, you made me to a double-take!

I definitely recommend the Procomp Extreme A/T's.

I'm on my second set, got 67k mi. out of the first set. They ride great and look good too!!!

Are you trying to stay with that same size? There is a duratrac in a 325/65r18 which is basically a ~35x12.50 or 35x13 depending on what tire calculator you use....If not, like Greg said above, the ProComp Extreme AT's come in that same size. I personally don't care for the sidewall tread pattern on the extremem AT's but they are a good tire and I believe come with a 50K mile gaurentee

side note, my girlfriend has a set of aftermarket rubbers :-D but you don't wanna see those huh

When i spoke with a guy from one of these tire places online, he said that size Duratrac would only be something like a 34" tire? I dont really want to go smaller, as the truck already looks like it could go a tad bit smaller in the front.

Ive heard nothing but good about the Duratracs, and would really like to get a set, just want to make sure i get the right size.

I googled the 325/65r18 dura trac and found on tire racks website.....

technically says it's a 34.6"x13"....Pretty sure you'll never notice a difference. Heck I measured my bosses "35x12.5r17" BFG M/T's and they were barely 34" tall

Check out Cooper's STT, they've got it in your size, good load range E tire, too. I'm currently running their AT/R, because when I put them on, I was doing a lot more highway traveling, my next set may be STT's if I can afford them...tires have gotten way to expensive lol
