Mud grapplers

Thinking about getting some 315/75r16 Nitto mud grapplers on my leveled F250. Anyone have experience with these? Like mileage, noise, or rubbing issues with stock wheels? I have 305/70r16s BFG A/t's now and they look a little small on my truck.

The BFG m/t is better? Noise wise? I've heard they last longer than the mud grapplers.

I've heard good things about BFG KM2s. They look really good too. But as with any mud tire, they aren't gonna last very long if you just want them to make your truck look cool as opposed to actually using them.

Had these on my F150. Very mean tire. Never had it get stuck anywhere in the corn fields while hunting. Got to keep the balanced and rotated or they get LOUD! Not just a little loud either. Wife said she could tell it was me when i turned down our road. They were mean azz tires and guys were always looking at them. But i dont know if I would want that aggressive of a tire on my 250. Very expensive also.

I've got great things to say about the Mud Grapplers. Sure they're loud, but what mudder isnt? Ive had my set for about 10k miles and they still look like new. It's all about tire rotation. I generally rotate around 3k miles. After 10k miles, I've only just begun to have the claws on the tread begin to touch the pavement.

I used to have TSLs and they were just as loud, wore down just as fast and offered a stiffer ride. The Mud Grappler absorbes a lot. I buried my truck with the TSLs and have never gotten stuck with the Mud Grapplers.

I still haven't decided.. If I were just wanting mud tires to look good I wouldn't keep my stock wheels I would get some 18'-24" wheels and then get mud tires for it and keep it on the street "to look good"... Honestly there are very very few aftermarket wheels for our trucks that I actually like. Form and function is what I need, something that is gonna work when I need it.

We rock 305/75/16 Goodyear Duratrac's on our 350 and the road noise is minimal considering the chunkyness of the tire. And you can't beat the grip man. Left the beast in 2wd all last winter with NO problems. And believe me they look borderline mudders. I highly highly highly recommend them, and being all terrains they last a lot longer than mudders. And will do better in the winter than unsiphoned (idk how to spell it lol) mudders

x2 on the duratracs. they are the best all around tire right now. I don't have any right now but wish I spent a few $ extra on them instead of the trxus mt's I bought. interco makes tires that work off-road, that's all they're good for.
