    Default looking for a good tire with an aggressive tread pattern

    so the truck needs new tires shortly and I am looking to just put some meaty/aggressive looking tires on the 16's. I had cooper zeon ltzs on my old dodge ram, but those are pretty expensive and still an option. What does everyone else suggest for a tire?

    Thanks

    I have Goodyear’s Wrangler AT/S, I really like them. I have read a lot of bad reviews on them but I have not had a problem with them at all; Very little noise, Great in Snow, good look. On wet a little slick from a stop if you hit the gas a little hard but most tires do. My next set I will get them again.

    I have had the Falken Rocky Mountain ATS for almost a year and I love them. Pretty cheap too.

    I have had them in snow, rain, sand and rocks with no problems.

    wow, paying $400+/tire is just ridiculous in my book. I mean, if you have the means to do so, than more power to ya. Im just looking for an affordable, yet aggressive looking tire and these falkens fit the description!

    I don't know if Pep Boys still sells them or not but about 10 years ago the Fortera (I think that was the brand name) sold an M/T that was pretty cheap and rode well.
