    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.

    I have had good luck with Dick Cepek Tires... the Mud Country, I ran 26k miles on them before giving them to my son. We still have about 50% of the tread left on them. I am thinking 40 - 50k miles before they need replaced. I replaced them when I got a new set of rims... and I put the FC-II's on. So far they are wearing nicely and a pretty quiet althouh they do hum some. If you look at my Pic I have about 5k miles on them... they are wearing like steal. If you compare the two... the mud countries clean out better... the FC-IIs tend to pick up stones a little. I have not used them in mud yet... but the Mud Countries were awesome.

    Hello from across the river in MN, Duratracs are PRICEY, last i saw $200+, I have Dunlop Rover MT maxx tractions, full mud tire but rated a 10 for snow and ice. I love these and they were only 160 a piece. these are also wearing xtremely well and not just for a mudd tire for any truck tire I have ever owned. I know that 99% will bow down to BFG but I had a brand new set of 285/75/16 on my suburban and I HATED them like no other thing in the world! they were horrible in the MN winters, I had them on my truck for a couple months before I set enough was enough, I was gonna get the Duratracs but the price was not what I really wanted to pay, these had just come out and my mechanic recommended them especially since I was considering the Duratracs. These are now on my pickup and with NO weight in the bed they still did great in the winter, even with out record snow we had 2 winters ago these were the BEST truck tire I have ever had.!! I have no clearence issues on my 99 silverado with a 285/75/16 on it!!
