-Looking for a 38' AT tire...what's new??

Hey all

So...our Mickey 38x15.5x20 ATZ are done. They were awesome. But it appears they are not making that size anymore.

As a matter of fact, I just spent the last hour+ looking for that size in an "All terrain" tire...and there's so very, very little out there. (On another note...wtf!)

Anyway, the truck is for looks, it's not taken off road and we'd like to stay with AT for road noise, etc.

I'm seeing a lot of new tires in the 355/60/20 sizing which are a slight bit smaller (closer to a 37x14...ish)

I've not seen any reviews on these by the folks that matter...you all

How are these tires?
-Kuhmo Road Venture AT?
-Falken WildPeak AT?
-Nitto Terra Grapler?

Thanks in advance...
Steve

I don't have any suggestions for you but I too wish there were more sizes available. I'd love to run the toyo at2 in 315 70 18. I emailed toyo just to tell them I'd be interested in that size. Can't hurt haha.

I honestly can't comment on that size tire but I can, however, tell you not to use falken. My dad and I both ran the wildpeak AT's on our trucks. 1/2, 3/4, and 1 ton trucks. None of them made it passed 20k miles. At least that was my experience with them and we religiously maintain our vehicles because we rely on them. Fluid changes, rotating tires, etc.

This is just my experience I am by no means bashing this company. I'm sure there are many that have good experiences with these tires

38 foot tire!?!? (subject line typo)

I would either drop to a 14.50 and get BFG MTs or go to a 40.

(Sorry bout the foot versus inch thing..)
I did get ahold of MT, they don't make them anymore in that size...makes me wonder why but oh well...I'm still interested in additional feedback to my original post.

Thanks!
