i have a 99 psd with a leveling kit. I am looking to upgrade from my 285/75/R16 to a 305/75/R16. my problem is that i do not know what tire to buy. i do a mix of highway road and alot of back country roads. so if anyone have suggestions they will be appreciated.

my suggestion would be one of these two:

1. Nitto terra-grapplers
2. BFG all-terrains

they are both good tires in my opinion but theres a mixed crowd on here about which is better.

well im in that process right now but there wearin real nice. but then again the bfg's wear real well too. btw ive heard guys gettin 40k on the nittos as well. its really up to you, the bfg are like $40 more expensive per tire. i personally think your payin for the name in that aspect but i just wanted to tell you, for what your gonna be doing these two tires will work the hands down best for you for traction off road, tread wear, street grip, and quietness

what about the bfg mud terrain instead of the all terain?


I have the mud terrains and I love them. They ride nice on the streets, and they grip good off the road. I have had them for about 5 or 6 months and they look brand new, someone told me they were the best mud tread for street use and offroading so I went ahead and got them, I'm going to get them again when i get bigger tires.

hhhhm if i was in your position ide get the tsl boggers :rofl::rofl: you may have rubber chunks flying everywere , but they they look sikkk no in all seriousness, the bfg all terrains are really nice my buddy has 35's on his psd, and theyre AWSOME they wheel nicely in the mud and theyre quiet on the road,, i hate quiet tires though.......

hey diesel kevin, i also agree with you i hate quiet tires as well but i don't want all terrain, i want a cheap loud mt, but instead of boggers, i'd go back to the thornbirds, i had 35's on my 85 chevy diesel and they were LOUD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've got the Nitto TGs on my 250 right now, got about 5k-8k on them, and they've been wearing nicely, they do pretty well offroad, but if you are planning to do more offroading than highway, I'd definitely go with an MT. My pick would be a Procomp. I got a set of 35 Xterrains on my offroad rig, and they've lasted 15k so far with no sign of decreasing tread.
