TIRES FOR EX

Folks---- I need some advice & input on stock tires for my '01 X. I will need to replace the Michelins that are on her soon.

So, what tire should be on this vehicle that will be rated for its weight?

I don't want to put anything for offroad or for lift. My wife will hate it!!!! Yup, its her truck.

You will want a D load rating. I'll let someone else jump in on types. I'm running M/T's.

My wife has Dayton timberline A/T's on her Explorer, that have worn very well.

Michelin LTX / MS. I got 285/75/16. I hated these tires at first (not as aggressive as i'm used to)!!! They were new on my truck when i got it at 50,000 miles... and just about to turn 120,000 and i still have 20,000 miles left on them. I've rotated them once... great tires!

I have had very good success with BFG's in the past. Very good wearing tire! look at those KO series AT. No road noise at all. I Wish they made them in an "E" ply for my rig!!
Good Luck!! Keep that lady safe and happy!!

Brant, your truck looks like a low rider in that pic. I can't wait to park it beside mine and see the difference. Just messing with ya man. Good looking truck.

The LTXs are nice as are the BFGs. I think you will be happy with either.

i would highly recommend staying with the LR E(10ply)with that size vehicle and if you want miles and good traction go with the BFG LongTrail and yes Michelin builds BFG but if you want to save some $$ go with the Daytons or the Mastercraft Courser A/T..

The only tire i would recomend is the Michelin LTX Cross Turrain's in a E load and 285-75's. but be ready to spend the money on them. Cuz they run about 175-225 a tire depending where you get them from.
