Need Tires!

Hey guys, I need some suggestions. Im sure somewhere in this section there are some recommendations but here is what I am looking for…

I need a good set of tires for my F350. I have the Harley 20” rims. I live in Pittsburgh and I need a suggestion for an affordable year round tire. I drive in the snow and sometimes light off road (camp type stuff). I need something that will be good in the summer too. Something that will last for a while. Also, I am not opposed to upsizing a tad either. It is a non lifted 350 FX4.


Thanks!

I would take a close look at the Nitto Dura Grappler. This model is also called the Highway Terrain. It has a semi-aggressive tread pattern for light off-road use and is geared for longevity, hauling, and comfort. Here's a link with some additional information.

Good tire, I like the Toyo also. But then, anything on a 20" rim isn't gonna be cheap, good luck with the search, let us know what you decide.

On 20's? I don't think you're going to find any quality tire for that price . Mine were 220 each I think, and I have 18's

Plus, those are the Terra's not the Dura's. The Dura's will last longer, so I took that into consideration when choosing my tires . 40-50 from Terra's and some are getting 80k from the Dura's, it was easier to justify the $1200 bill

I know! It always ends up being a wash. I wish I could find them local though.... So you think the Duras are better than the Terras? I need to do something quick! My tires are looking like they should be on a Honda at this point! lol
