Tires ...

So, leaving the Home Depot the other day I drove over a razor blade that someone decided to leave in the parking lot and shredded one of my tires. Im curious as to what kind of tires you guys are running, especially those running them on the stock 18" rims. Also, what sizes on stock height? Thank you

After alot of research, I am going to buy a set of nitro terra grappler 295/70 r18 AT's. it's one of the only tires made in that size (34.5x11.5)

Anyways, it looks like a 35" tire, but still has 80 psi max rating. And they are Only about $240 a tire. Also being a narrower tire, it's better in the snow and does not hurt Mpg as much.

The stock wheels are only 8" wide, so you shouldn't run a 35x12.5 on them. Some people do, but you really shouldn't.

I had a set of Nittos on my Dodge a few years back, I was not happy with the way they wore. I went ahead and ordered a set of Goodyear Duratracs. Thank you for all the replies!
