    Default I need a tire recommendation

    I have these Milanni 20" wheels. They spec a 8.5" wide rim. I want a better tire than is on there- hell Iam frankly afraid to go off road with these rims, let alone the tires that are on it now.

    Anyone know of a good tire in a 20" that would fit- maybe medium aggressive- but still ok for highway.

    Thanks up front,

    cant get to agressive tires will hum @ highway speeds
    I thought the hum was good thing?

    Stock height? What concerns you about going off-road: the possibility of damaging the wheel? That seems like a good concern with those low profile tires. My personal choice: find a cheap set of steel 15-17 inch rims and put your off-road tires on those, and keep you street tires on the 20's

    Bash the steelies. I agree, get two sets. When I go camping and have to pull my trailer I go back to stock. When I go off road ( most of the time) I run my 33's.

    I heard from a friend that the Nittos are a noisy tire. I agree with using 2 sets of wheels, I know it will be a pain changing them over but it will save those nice looking rims! $$$$

    I run 20" Toyo Open Country A/T's on my 2006 2500HD Silverado, and my Wife runs 18" Toyo Open Country A/T's on her 2001 1500 Suburban. They work great in the snow, mud, rain, etc. and are not noisy in the highway.

    I've got 275/55/20 Cooper AT's on my 07 sierra. I love them. Great looking, great traction in rain and they were only 150/each from discount tire direct.

    What? You guys can't read my mind about what vehicle I'm talking about. That's OK, I don't have much faith in mind readers- its RARE to see a MEDIUM, WELL DONE.

    OK These rims (20" Milannis) are on my 1500 98 SUburban. The tires that are on there right now have a lean sidewall profile and though they may look sharp, they are hell on rough terrain. Can I get a bigger sidewall profile and still get them in the wheel well?
