Big Beefy Tires

Hey everyone,

New too this site. I have a lifted 03 f350 and would love to but some big mud terrains or something like that on them. Ive been looking at alot of things from Pro Comp Mud terrain to Goodyear wrangler mt/r with kevlar and everything in between. I was wondering what your thoughts were. I want a good looking tire but that also will give me a decent tread wear. Id be running 38s. Let me know.

Thanks

I am wondering same thing too. Looking at some 35's though. The only mud tire i have experience with is the super swamper ssr. Rides smooth, but loud as hell. DOes awesome off road. Destroys in the mud. Okay in the snow and rocks. Seems pretty good on a wet road.

to the OP, I have Procomp x terrians and they are not that great, everyone here seems to love Toyo MT's, BFG KM2's, or the good years with kevlars seem to get the best reviews for a MT. if you are going to be looking at a A/T BFG A/T i like personally have them on 3 separate trucks, Toyos, procomps and NIttos all seem to get good reviews on the A/T too.

All i know is I have a 6" with 37"x13.5x17 the next tire i will be getting is either the BFG KM2 or the Procomp extreme A/T's there is some more info to be had but this is the basics, I would say stick with really any of the companies ive said and you will be pretty happy

To the OP

First thing to ask yourself is HOW are you planning to use this truck. That has everything to do with the selection of tires.

There are a HUGE assortment of tires out there that are "big and beefy"...all with a specific purpose in mind.

If you are planning to spend more then 50% of your time off road, then you have to consider what type of off road tire to get (mud, rock, swamper, etc)

If you don't think you'll be off road that much then your selection will more then likely be narrowed down to two types of tires
1-AT (all terrain) Big n beefy still, but much better for road, much quieter and much more tread life length.

2-MT (Mud terrain) Big n beefier (deeper slightly deeper lugs then AT's), better in mud, louder on the road and not quite as smooth. Also, they require a bit more air pressure for road use (up to 45lbs) and will allow you to feel every cigarette you run over.

If you plan on being on the road 80% of the miles or more, get the AT's. There are HUGE amount of websites (4wheelonline, etc) that cater to just your needs.

make sure you search around for prices, check places like 4wheelsparts, tirerack, discount tire, summit, make sure you shop around I got my tires almost 30 cheaper per tire because i shopped around.
