Longevity is key, but also trying to kill some road noise. The Toyoís arenít terrible but I notice them.

They aren't MT tires but BFGoodrich makes their All Terrain tire in a 35x12.5R18. I really like mine 99% of the time. They grab well in snow/ice, rain, and dry pavement, no sidewall roll or sway with a heavy 12k 5th wheel behind it, and tread life seems to be really good. gone through 3/32s tread in around 20k miles. I rotate every 5k and check air maybe 4-5 times a year. Honestly you're gonna have to just pick one. Research shows tires are love/hate no middle ground. I found people bashing the tire I run left and right, and then opposite. You'll see the same for every tire.

Pick a tire that meets your needs, check the pressure regularly and rotate regularly and that's all you can do.

p.s. when I say I like my BFG A/T's 99% I only dislike the gravel they pick up on gravel roads. I installed duraflap mud flaps and that basically eliminated the problem. I will be going with MT tire next just to be that guy hahaha.


Bfg, Cooper, Dean, Toyo, Yokohoma and a few more etc. stick with a big brand name and your usually gonna be just fine.

The Ridge Grapplers do pick up bigger rocks than the Grabber AT2s ever did
The Grapplers are just as quiet though
Look into dynabeads for balancing

I'm running a no-name Radar Renegades MT. I had Toyo Mt's on my last 7.3. The renegades are significantly quieter. I have 16,000 miles on them and they're barely worn. I will with no doubt buy them again. 37x13.5x20

There's a you tube video out there that rates the best budget Mt's you can watch. I think the Radars I have are $275 each. There are more than one unicorn out there.
