    Default Starting Research on New Mud Tires

    I'm starting to do my research, I'm wanting to get 35" tires, or 37" tires. Cost doesn't matter, I'm just looking for something that will last relatively long, and look very aggressive, a few tires i like are Toyo Open Country Mud Terrains, like i have right now, Nitto Terra Mud Grapplers (i heard they don't last long), Irok Mud Terrains (also hear they dont last long, but are wide which i like), BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM2.

    Does anyone have any ideas for tires around 35"-37" tall? They can be Metric size or standard doesn't matter, i know some people paid extra just so they can say they have 35s or whatever.

    I have the Kumho road venture at 315/75/16 but haven't been able to really use them off road yet.

    That was the site i was using to research so far, but a lot of the reviews are unreliable because some are all for them and others just hate them. I haven't found a tire that's all around good.

    That does seem to be how most reviews go. I try to do the whole throw out the top and bottom reviews and pick somewhere betweento get the general idea of the tire. Yokahama has a mud tire they may still call it the geolander mt. I've done well with yokohama tires in the past and I know lots of people like the BFGs

    I myself like the Toyo MT's. I would be careful going any larger than 35's on a 1500. I have heard that 37's and up over stress the half ton axles.
