Which 35" tire?

im fixin to get new tires and not sure what to get, i want somethin that gets plenty of miles and looks agressive from the side, but doesnt necessarily have to perform well offroad, but can, and not trying to spend $1500, any suggestions?

What is your definition of "aggressive". Are you wanting a MT or an AT

I have Toyo MTs...a little pricey but you get what you pay for. Some people on here like the Kumhos and they're cheaper.

I got the terra grapplers but Ill be going with the Toyo MTs next. I like the Terra Grappler but they are NOT mud friendly.

BFG radial AT's! Great tire on road, excellent life, my last set had 85k on them when I sold the truck. That's what I'll be getting as soon as I find my next truck.

I can tell you what NOT to buy. DO NOT, repeat, DO NOT buy BFG mudders if you plan to tow anything. They crack under load. Literally, cracked in between the lugs, and a little on the sidewalls. I pull a 3 horse slant with weekender living quarters, which might be pushin 11k. An 8 ply tire should handle any trailer you hook up but... Not BFG's. After that performance I'd be real hesitant to buy their AT's too, but you might have better luck with a less aggressive tire. But BFG won't comp you for another tire if you admit to putting a load on your tires. So... buyer beware.

I'm running dunlop mudders now. So far so good. Just don't get 'em from sears, they don't balance anything big very well. And they'll ding your runnin boards tryin to put your truck on a lift instead of using jacks.

Next tire will probably be a 33' toyo honestly. Unless you never pull anything then you will be cussin about the power you loose at some point with the 35's. And I loved toyo's when I had 'em on a half ton. 60k +...

So I'd probably do myself a favor and fork out the extra bucks...


JUST DON'T BUY BFG...

Definitely check out the Cooper Discoverer STTs. They're awesome tires, the tread pattern is very similar to the Toyo's, but they're cheaper. They're less aggressive MTs then some, so they ride like an AT but they still do pretty well offroad. My mom got 40k+ miles out of both sets of 35"s she's had and she didn't stay on top of rotating them either so I bet with proper rotation these tires could go 45k miles.



~2000 F350: 6" Pro Comp lift, 17" Moto Metals, 34" Buckshots, 5" exhaust, DIY intake with AEM filter, 12k lb hydraulic winch, ranchhand front bumper, powdercoated flatbed, (2) 15"s in camo boxes w/ (2) 1000 watt amps, warn hubs, flatbed, and (3) 150 watt KCs.


~1996 F350 7.3: 11" lift, traction bars front and rear, 46" Claws, 4.56s, Banks Powerpack, straight piped exhaust, and (2) 10s.

Oh, Firestones live up to the reputation they recieved on exploders a few years ago. I got about 20k out of a set of firestone AT's...
