Daddy needs a new pair of shoes

Truck is below in sig. 08 250 ccsb with stock 20s. Got a 2.5" newton level kit with 4" rear blocks. Truck has stock 275/60xr20 wrangler at/s on it now.

I'm looking for a little bit more aggressive tire than that AT tire. Looking at the Wrangler Duratracs, Cooper Discoverer STT Tek3 or the NITTO Trails (even though they are an MT).

I am also looking for a little bit beefier tire too. Looking at the Duratracs in a 285/60xr20. Not taller, but a little bit wider in the hips. Also looking to go to a 35x12.5x20 if possible. Maybe in the Coopers or the Nittos.

Budget is about 325/tire to 375/tire.

Any of you guys have any input or reviews of the above three tires? Or any suggestions?

Dont haul much. A heavy 5th wheel once every 6 months. about 80/20 highway/offroad.

Thanks!

A buddy of mine just got the 35" trail grapplers on his 20" factory wheels and has a 2.5" level on the front and it looks very nice. You just have to trim a little of the fender liner.

you have the same setup as me, 2.5 front and nothin in the rear since it is a F350

I have the Pro Comp Xtreme A/T and I have seen some freinds around here with the same tire get over 60k on a set of E rated 35x12.50r20 on my factory 20's

Check craigslist, I got a brand new (take off) set of 325/60-20 Toyo Open country AT's for $1000. Although I'm not going to put them on my stock rims, tires are too wide. The guy I bought them from decided he didn't like the look, he upgraded to the MT's. Also the A/T's have larger tread blocks than I'm used to with A/T's. I have a set of Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ's on my fathers dodge, they are wearing good we have about 15K on them, don't make much noise for a MT and are very reasonably priced.

Yeah Casey I like those Pro Comps. Where did you find those?

I usually just go to Discount Tire but they only have Pro Comp ATV tires. Did you go to a 4x4 shop or something?

I have been looking around a bit on craigslist but truth is, even though my overall engine maintenance and everything is up to snuff, I have neglected my tires a bit and they are bad.

Has anybody seen 285/60r20 on a stock 20" rim with a 2.5" lift? They are a 33.5x11.2x20 compared to the 34.1x10.7x20 stock wranglers. So... a tad shorter and a little fatter. think these would look goofy?

Thanks for the help guys.

I ended up going with the Nitto Trails in a 295/65r20. Just couldnt talk myself into the duratracs for some reason and even though almost everyone here runs Nittos, there is a reason why.

Anyways, see you guys on the road.
