Thinking about sone new treads

So what's a good tire for these rigs? 10 ply obviously. I have Dunlop radial rovers now and I wouldn't take another set if they were free.

The norm seems to be Toyo open countries

I know fierce attitude mt's are a good tire.( driven them before)

Or the good ol BFF at's

I want something that looks good on it. No highway tires.
Where I live the snow is insane. These Dunlop's barely cut it. Actually they suck In the snow. My wore pit bfg's did better.

What do y'all think?

I want the Toyos myself. I just got my dad a set of General AT2s. His truck is an 03 Gasser with 160,000 miles. So I was just looking for the best deal. I got them cheap. Either way, his tires are holding up really well and work SO MUCH better in mud and snow than my Terra Grappers. I would never buy another set of these Terras.

My neighbor has the open countrys in 35s on his 07. Seem to be a great tire but he doesnt do much towing, halling or even driving so all I know is they look good. lol

Do you do alot of heavy towing? If not then I wouldn't be too set on 10 plys. Most of the time 8 plys are all you will ever need and have a much better ride. Just my .02, but if you do alot of towing it doesn't do you a lick of good

I have Nitto Terra Grapplers, 305/55/20, and have about 24k miles on them. They are great. I expect to get about 40k out of them the way it's looking...

I just bought some of the fierce because they are so cheap. My truck is a recreational unit so I only have about 1500km on them and cant comment on these yet. The best tire I have ever run is the mickey thompson mtz. They outwear anything in a mudder. I siped mine and ran them through 2 winters. I got 60,000 miles out of a set on a half ton. I have never got that many miles out of an all terrain. They look sharp too. They are pricey though. I bought my fierce for $230 p/tire. The mtz were $380 p/tire.

Right now I have the Hankook RT03's on. Its a mud tire with aggressive sidewall but they are blackwalls. In winter these things plain out work. Not too noisy going down the road, but I am used to mud tires up in WI.

I bought a set of New goodyear dura tracs with the sidewall treads for a gasser. I sold the truck but If they fit the bill I would go for them, Its a all terrain also.

Thinking 10 plys. I tow a inclosed trailer sometimes (5-6k) and a 8k pound 5er with whatever on it/ steel, bobcat ,steel roofing,ect.... not all the time. Maybe a few thousand miles a year.
