oh noes, another tire question!!!

sorry guys, this is prob like the 1,000,000th tire thread. its time for new tires on the truck, as at 2 of them are pretty bald and 1 is leaking significantly. i've read a lot of posts, and it seems the top 2 are BFG all terrain(love 'em) and the nitto grapplers. now i don't mean to be cheap, but as much as i'd like the BFGs, i'm not feelin the price as of now. anyone had experience with the kumho road venture a/t? i know they make a good street tire, just wondering about their a/t worth. it looks like decent tread pattern, and pretty good price. also load rating E. i'll be going with a 305/70/16.

i have the road venture m/t's and so far i'm really happy. very quiet, good road manners, minimal weight required to balance,just don't know about tread life yet, only have a few thousand miles on them, I think they are gonna be a better than average tire for the money

You should also look into a Mastercraft tire. Saw tham on an 02 and they looked real good.

I have the same tires on my 96,not a bad tire at all. They do allright in the mud,they get around in the snow pretty good,and I'll probably be getting about 30,000 to 40,000 miles out of them before I have to get new ones. They are a quite and smooth ride going down the road. The only thing I don't like about them is that its pretty easy to spin the tires on wet roads when the tires are cold,once the tires warm up a bit,they grip pretty good.

I've got the kuhmo's right now like em so far . I had cooper's before which are the same as the mastercraft wasn't happy with them. had a slipped belt at 24000 and had to replace the rest at 26000 due to treads being slick

i had all country radial lxt on my last ranger. i think they were made by hercules(great a/t tread too); a friend of mine got all 4 of them them for me for $400 mounted and computer balanced. i had about 30k on them when i sold my ranger, and they honestly looked brand new. i doubt if they have the weight rating i need though or else i'd def go with them

diesels chew through tires like mad. get the cheapest thing you can and replacethem as they wear out. youll be money ahead of buying an expensive tire that will only last a few miles longer.
