Are you looking for an A/T or M/T?

Well im with you. If it has a big ole lift it probably will look better with some aggressive tires IMO.

Really it comes to how much highway driving you do versus the amount of money you want to spend. My truck is off the road every week but I make a 160 mile commute to school every week. It really wears on grapplers but I didn't mind spending the money on them.

IIRC the Fierce M/Ts have a 50k warranty? I had a friend purchase them and that is what he said but I don't know if it is true or not.

What size wheels are you running?

Mickey Thompson ATZ's. They have an aggressive look and they ride great! You can get off road with them and get in some mud. Just cant get real crazy in the mud with them like you can with a M/T, but then again if you get too crazy in the mud with our big heavy trucks it really isnt gonna matter what kind of tire you have on there because you are gonna be stuck! lol

IMO the terras are too soft and dont last long enough in comparison with the price, dont know how others feel but im gettin new ones after only 20,000 miles. i just looked on rimzone. they have federal mt for $229 a tire for 35/12.5/17 compared to terra at $303 (325/70/17). just my two cents....
