Buying 37x20. Which tire?

I'm a teenager, therefore I drive like one. Which tire will last the longest and be the best for my truck?

I am looking at the BFG's or the TOYOs. I want a big tire, but a street tire that will last a long time.

Toyo's are nice and a great tire theyre just expensive. I have the Kuhmo M/T's and am very happy with them. For the price theyre definitely worth a look.

+1 on the Kumhos. I am totally happy with them. but I dont think you want a mud terrain type tire do you? The BFG radial all terrains are an awesome mild radial that last forever. used to run them on my jeeps all the time (they were daily drivers)

How will the BFG's do on a heavy truck?
And nah, I want a primarily street tire.

no definately not like a grandma

I rotated them every 3-5,000 miles, ran Nitrogen in them and tow a trailer maybe 2-3 times a month with my 660 Rhino on it

Rotation and pressure are key
