Just looking to see what everyone's running for tires. Right now, I'm running a set of 265/75/R16(stock rims) & they're GoodYear Wranglers. These tires didn't really meet my expectations, I'm actually really disappointed with them. They kind of wore down fast after having them for the past 3 years, with nothing wrong with the alignment or other front end issues. The 1st set of tires it had were Toyo Open Country A/Ts(same size) & I liked them slightly better than the GYs. They were wearing great, until my A-hole neighbor across the way decided to put wood screws in front of my driveway & they just had too many holes to try to salvage with plugs. There's a BFG model I've seen on a friend's Super Duty with a mildly more aggressive tread, & the truck hasn't been around for me to look at them. They caught my eye, but I'd rather see them up close one more time before I went out & bought some.
I guess what I'm saying is, I'm looking for a deeper-tread with a more aggressive pattern, but I DO NOT
want to be looking into bigger tires or something that would work better in the woods or on a trail & hums louder than the engine on the road. I don't take this particular truck off-road & it has no plans of being prepped to go wheeling. It's strictly a road warrior, & anyone who lives or has driven in New England knows that good tires are important for our F-ed up winters. So I'd really like to keep it 265/75.
Money is somewhat an issue for tires. I've got $$$ up to a $900 set, but if I REALLY like what I see, I could stretch it to $1100, & not a penny more. I really do like BFGs, I'd like to stay away from GoodYear if possible, & I don't mind companies like Dunlop or Continental. Just as long as these tires fit my criteria: stock size, aggressive road tire. Pics are very much appreciated, but not necessary. Thanks to all in advance......OH! & if the tires can come with white lettering, that's always a PLUS too! I'm a child of the 80s, I loves the white lettering.
