dura track and stmax are both good options as well.
havent run the nittos but everyone i know with them likes them so that has to count for something
one thing i will say about the bfg way better in snow than mud
we have a volcanic clay mud that gets bad but i have had trouble with small hills here in mud as soon as it snows i can walk right up
so again it depends where and what you are driving on.
i am running mastercraft coopers mxt's right now i will likely get them siped more for winter but i got way too good a deal on a set of 34's to turn down and they do great in deep snow mud and even on the highway but i expect i will only get 30 or 40 out of them. but so far they are wearing great with no more than 12k or so they still look brand new so maybe i am just nervous of mud terrains

on the kids 5 ton....
tires are pricy if you cant score miltary take offs but i would LOVE to get one to build out as an espedition vehicle
so many projects...
so little time and money

I like mead

I am also running the Mastercraft courser MXTs on 2 of my vehicles and they have done good in the mud, snow, sand, and they are quiet on the pavement. My only complaint is I only got 35K out of my last set but I didn't rotate them like I should have.

I have the BFG All-Terrain A/T KO's on mine and could not be happier. I don't know everyone's situation but I have run the BFG A/T KO's myself on all kinds of different pick-up trucks including a Tacoma, two F-150's, and now a F-250. Of course, you need at least a load range "E" or 10-ply as our trucks are heavier and haul more weight than a F-150 or mid-size pick-up like the Tacoma. My truck had a brand new looking set on it when I got it in December of 2016 and that helped close the deal as it saved me about $1,000 from putting them on myself. I'm on track to get 60,000 miles out of that same set and that is pulling a 24', 7,000 lb. enclosed trailer all over the southeast without rotating them once. They are quiet and, IMO, ride very well. I had a picture of my tires with the tread gauge reading but I guess I deleted it. It's in another thread here somewhere. I've put 30,000 miles on them in the two years I've had this truck and still have 1/2 tread left. When the time comes to replace them, a new set just like them will go back on regardless of cost difference over other tires in the same class. In my time in the tire business, I sold a bunch of Nitto tires; every kind of Grappler they make for different intended purposes on all different kinds of pick-ups. I did not sell as many BFG's because of the price difference. However, I NEVER had a complaint on the BFG's for any reason. I cannot say the same for the Nittos. Certainly not slurring the Nittos as they are a top-tier tire and I had a lot of happy customers who swore by them. I guess it will boil down to your preference and experience with the tire you find most suited to your needs.

Have them on my 2016 and I am having trouble keeping them balanced over 75. They are a softer rubber than my Toyo AT2s and far superior wet traction. I donít think the BFGs will last as long as the Toyos.

almost 19k on bfg ko2 A/Ts and like them very much.

cost me just over $1150 for a set of 285/75r16s and I have towed small skidsteers, and 36ft triple slide 5th wheels and love the handling ability when loaded and do great in snow/ice. I have "HEARD" some reports how they aren't lasting but Ive used 2/32s tread in 19k miles so at 12/32s I feel these tires have performed and wear great. Very affordable and zero ride noise. I can't say they are a mud tire because well they aren't. My buddy really loved the duratrek mt. he got 30k out of one set and the store warrantied and replaced and the next pair have been wearing way better.


A lot of guys here run cooper stt maxx's and bfgoodrich A/T ko2s with great success.

I run Nitto Terragrapplers. Couldn't get the miles out of BFG . All Terrains.. Nittos cost me less and run more miles, and get decent traction in mud

I run MT tires on my vehicles because they are the true all terrains in my opinion.
I have the BF Goodrich TA's on my 2016 F-350 King Ranch, CC, DRW, FX4 and they are decent tires with almost 16,000 miles on them, it might snow where I live once every 20 years or so.
When it comes time to replace them I'm replacing them with General Grabber A/TX - Size: LT245/75R17, your truck calls for a LT235/85R16 120/116S E or the LT265/75R16 123/120R E, on Tire Rack they are $154.99 ea for the 235's and $163.99 ea for the 265's with free shipping.

General tires last a very long time, ride smooth and are fairly quiet on the highway, and are very competent tires for off road use and on light snow/ice.

I'm running Cooper ST/MAXX on mine. They've worn well and performed great. I haven't noticed much road noise and they run pretty smooth. I have some ridge grapplers on my explorer (I know, overkill) they ride decent and I've noticed a little noise

i ran the mastercraft mxts on my duramax. they did great in the sands of el paso. standing water on the road they did great. but slight wetness on the roads and trying to accelerate was like trying to drive on ice. i never got to use them in the snow as i was deployed the first winter i had them and then the second winter i just didnt get the chance to take leave.

but on road behavior was great, for a MT they werent that loud. and the heaviest things i would tow was the occasional full size truck for a few hours and going back and forth between different places to wheel and my miata autoX car.

when i get wheels and tires for the 6.0 ill probably get the MXTs again, just cause i was so impressed with them.
