    Default These tires any good?

    http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....1=yes&place=14

    Im putting a Rancho quicklift on my truck here hopefully in a month or so. So Im trying to find some good 33's to put on my truck. Any ideas on good tires for my truck?
    They said it would be just over $700 installed and aligned.

    We have a set of those on our work truck. It's a '07 Ford F-150 4x4. Those tires do a great job off road, but they're awfully noisy on the highway. If you get those, make sure you rotate regularly or tire wear will be a problem!

    Do you have a suggestion for a different one, due to the fact that Im driving on the highway about 85% of the time?
    What about the Toyo Open Country A/T?

    I haven't really had any experience with other off-road tires, but I've always heard good things about Cooper tires. I have a set of Discoverer ATRs, but those are basically street tires. You can look on their website to see what fits your needs www.coopertires.com. I've heard quite a few people getting the STTs...and I have to admit, they look sweet!

    i have Nitto Terra Grapplers on mine and they are great, low road noise, no wear as of yet, and they do good in the mud still, and are cheap for the tire you get

    since your on the highway most of the time i would say go with an AT. the Nitto terra grappler is a great tire and the toyo isnt too bad either but would take the nitto over them. BFG AT is always a good choice as they are not to expensive and are great in everything also. the BFG is prob the most aggresive looking AT out there. the Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo is also a decent AT also.

    Out of all of these I would suggest the Nitto. they will not be loud on the road but give you great traction in anything you will throw at them. the BFG would be my next choice

    Smooth lugs like the Firestones are terrible in the rain, look for a tire with sipes in the lugs.
