If you want good off road performance then the Nitto Mud Grappler is the only way to go. My best friend has a lifted 07 2500 Dodge running 38x15.50R20 and they look good, ride great, and perform like nothing else out there.

LOL 15.5 not wide enough?

I drive highway and some off road to work everyday. They were toast at 30k miles, tires howl loud if your into that as well.

I like the howl and the meaty lugs, I'm young

Sure they'll fit. Right after you take the sawzall to the wheel openings. You'll need Bushwacker cutouts to make that setup work. 6" lift is only going to handle 37's or 38's.

The more aggressive the tread pattern (read mud tires here) the faster you will where them out. That's just the way it is. The Toyo M/T anf the Nitto Trail Grappler are good compromises. Good looking tread patters that still do a decent job on the highway.
