    Default Need new tires for my 20'' stock wheels. Suggestions

    So here is a picture of what I have now. This is my first truck, so I'm not familiar with the latest tires on the market or what would even look good for an all-terrain tire on this rim. Any suggestions or pictures would be great.

    depends on what your looking to off road or if you just want an allterrain tire casue it will look good... but start with bfg, nitto, dick cepek... it all really comes down to what your willing to spend and what your looknig to do with your truck, just a thought is your truck the stock hight?

    Yeah I simply want the all-terrain for look and just a little added traction. My truck is stock height, but I am about to install a leveling kit for the front end. Just wasn't sure if anyone had any specific tires in mind. Thanks

    BFG's, Toyo and Nitto's all have good A/T's, and there round. Some cheaper A/T's are out of round. Chose wisely my son LOL.

    at our shop i see almost as many brand name tires out of round as i do cheap tires, I would look at the Goodyear silent armor great traction on and off road and look great

    there is the Toyo Open Country A/T, Hankook RF10, Cooper LTZ, and if you are looking for best possible look go to a 305/55r20. its gonna be slightly bigger and with the leveling kit it will look great. Stay away from the BFG A/T as they wear quick. I own a OK Tire up here in Canada and I see a lot of premature wear on the BFG. if you like the look of that tire look into the Continental Grabber AT2.

    its actually the General Grabber AT2. Forgive me.

    Great post guys. Thanks for all the suggestions. And can someone explain to me what "round" means? I know its probably stupid, but I rather ask than sit here and pretend like I know what I'm talking about.

    I've seen threads comparing the Cooper Zeon LTZ and the Dura-Trac (I think from Goodyear). Both look nice and give added traction. I don't know if the Dura-Trac comes in the OEM size though.

    out of rounf means that it is "egg" shaped. you will always get a vibration out of that tire and it will most likelly wear funny. in my 10 years in the tire business i have seen mostly "cheap" tires out of round but there are a few "known" brands that have some out of round issues. Kumho is one to stay away from as far as out or round goes, but there is nothing in their line-up that wouls interest you anyways. Spend the extra cash and get a good quality tire.

    I just put on Cooper Zeon LTZ's on my '07 20's. So far so good. Hope to get a better feel on snow performance after this storm hits in PA.
