Thread: Which tires?!?

  1. #1

    Default Which tires?!?

    Ok, I was gonna get some Toyo M/T's for my truck, but they're a little out of my budget and I need them to last a long time...So now I'm looking at an A/T. Here's what I need: I want it to look as aggressive as possible (for an A/T), but still last a long time...Also, I was looking at 305/55 R20,(I have the 2.5" CCM leveling kit) but would a 285/50 R20 be that much smaller? I'm looking at the Cooper Zeon LTZ's right now, but wanted your input!

    Here's my truck for those that havent seen it:

    Don't know what to tell you bro, been down that road. 20" tires are expensive!! I was looking for an all terrain too but 33" tall tires for 20" rims, I was looking at $1000 -$1200 so I settled for the tires I have now,
    305/50/20 Cooper Discoverer H/T plus, 32" tall , more of a street tread but, I only paid $540 out the door! So you're probably going to have to compromise a little or save up for what you want. Nice looking truck by the way!

    Got the new tires on!

    Went with the Cooper Zeon LTZ 275/60 R20 and I love them!




    Here's what the tread looks like:


    No rub either!





    They're great in the mud too! Here are a couple next to my bosses truck.

    Hey 07blkchevyz71. That is a NICE looking truck. Tires look nice as well. Just wanted to know what you put on your tail lights? I like that look.

    Thanks! I had a guy on another forum do them. He mixed black paint and clear coat and sprayed them, then he cleared them.

    Thanks for getting back with me. I thought they had to be custom because I spent a good bit of time searching the internet for tail lights like that. As you can imagine, didn't find any. Nice truck though and LOVE those tail lights.

    I just cut them open with a Dremel and then cut the orange reflector out. I replaced the turn signal with Silverstar Ultra turn signals.

    Thanks!
