Best Mud ties? With a condition.

Anyone know of any good mud tires, that are rated each to at least 2,750lbs?

Hopefully ones that will be good for on road use to 60mph/100kmh

Toyo M/Ts or Nitto Trail Grapplers I recommend you put a leveling kit on yours and throw some 35x12.50s on! It would look killer!

I'm actually leaning on the Nitto Tires on Dick Cepek's 18x9 DC-2 rims.

You think I'd need a leveling or lift kit for that?

I wanted the Trail Grapplers so bad! Just coolant quite afford 'em.

Hmmmm... That's a tough one. You might be okay, since the stock tire is almost 34 1/2". I say you should put 'em on, and if they do rub, they won't rub bad. But if they do, slap the leveling kit on and call it quits

Trail Grippers or Mud Grippers? I'm almost leaning towards the Mud Grippers myself.

These things are going to be around 2,400$ to put on my truck, so probably will happen Christmas/Spring time I hate to say (lots of money for a college student to save when he is paying off his new truck! ) but its a tough choice.

Edit, this is the part number ... 35x12.50R18LT E 123Q of the wheels based on what I am reading from Nitto's chart. So it should not be too bad.

I'm in no way obligated to say that I like these tires. But, I really can't find anything bad about them. I need to get them offroad and see how they do, but other than that, I've got nothing but good things to say about them

Trail Grapplers all the way. The Mud's are loud as heck and don't last very long. The Trail Grapplers are as quiet as my Terra's almost, and they have just about the same off road capability.

Yeah, I know what you mean. They are awesome tires, my buddy just got some put on his Tundra, and man am I jealous! But it has to make it a little easier to like them with that sponsorship

With my job, I can have any tire I want, so I'm not really playing any favorites. I wouldn't lead anyone down the wrong path
