Need some new tires.

So, I'm in need of some new tires, and I think the ones that I want to put on are Nitto Terra Grapplers. A couple of questions, can anyone vouch for how good/bad they are, and will 305/70/17 fit on a stock 2005 F-250? They measure out to right at 34" tall, and it looks like I gota helluva lot of room for bigger tires, so hopefully they will fit.

Thanks,

Ed

I have trust in terra grapplers and they'll fit on your truck. I saw a stock CC/LB 05 F250 with them and they look sweet.

i had them on my truck and i was glad i got rid of them, they didnt get much traction maybe to much power they look good but they are to expensive for how well they do

Jees 6 weeks are they makin the payments, They should pull one off the lot and give it to ya just for all your hardship. Thats rediculous.

The terra grapplers are awesome tires. I have them on my truck and have put almost 10000 miles and have the nipples on them still. They are tough in the mud and snow for being an all terrain.

They are ok in mud, I wouldnt go muddin with them but they do good for a AT tire. Check out Discount Tire, Custom Wheels, Truck & Car Rims | Discount Tire Co. they have smokin deals on nitto tires

Paid cash for it. I don't really want a new truck I just want mine fixed. BTW there's too much crap on my truck already.
