I hated.... HATED my DC FC II's, not a fan. Never had a worse tire in the mud. They were smooth, quiet and very nice on the road, but once off the road forget it. They also didn't last very long, but I'm pretty hard on tires.

Toyo MT's are great, a little pricey but they last the best from what I've read on here. I'm also a big fan of the pro-comp tires, but I see mixed reviews on them. They hold up to burnouts well I know that.


I've run 34x10.5x17 swampers with no fitment issues. A true 35" tire may rub on a 250, but with a leveling kit no issues. The 33x12.5x17 DC FC II's I had, looked too small on the truck, wish I had something a little meatier. I also have 34x12x17 Goodyear Wrangler MT/R's and like the way they look next to the truck a lot, but haven't mounted them yet.
