Lets talk Tires!!!

Ok I'm looking for a good set of 35 12.50 16 tires for my F250.

I would like a aggressive looking AT or a not very agressive MT that will wear well, I put alot of miles on my truck a year and would like these to last a while. I will mainly be on pavement with an occational off-road joy ride. We never get any snow so I'm not worried about how they preform in snow.

With all the tire choices out there I cant figure out what I want.

What do you guys recommend?



Also I would like to keep as much money in my wallet as possible, so a best bang for my buck tire would be nice.

2004 F250 CC 4X4 XLT, 6.0
Stock for now

1996 F250 CC 2X4 XLT 7.3
Stock, with 1999-2002 IDM

(My old ride - Gone in 2008)
2003 F250 Crew Cab 4X4 King Ranch, 6.0
4" stage II Procomp lift.
EGR system in the trash
Stright piped
AEM Brute force intake
SCT SF3
ID X-Street tune
Gauges

My buddy has the Mickey Ts ATZ on his dodge and huals alot of weight all the time, and they work out great.

I have the MT mud terrain, and i like them alot, today was there first day in the snow and she did well. (probably because i dont have my chip in)

I run Nitto Terra Grapplers (AT) - dont look real agressive but wear, handle and cost real nice!

Consider Mickey Thompson ATZ (dont remember - ATZ or is it ATX?) Agressive sidewall, agressive tread - AT will give you a better ride, smoother, and quieter then a MT.

if you want a MT - consider the Hankook MT - wont set you back alot of money - is a agressive AT - MT actually stands for Maximum Traction - but handles well off road.

The Nittos handle very well off road, have a high weight capacity and cost very little compared to most other brands.

I consider Toyo' MT's to actually be more of an AT,...so I would recommend them to ya.

I am running the Cooper STT's. Their thread is almost identical to the toyo mt. They wear well. The Nitto all terrain wears well it just doesn't look agressive enough for me.
