Thread: Tire Opinions

    Default Tire Opinions

    Hey guys, been a while since I've last logged on.

    I need some of your opinions on tires....currently I'm running 305/55/20 Goodyear Wrangler duratrac's and I'm not really happy how they are wearing. I've only had them for just over a year...and I'm going to need new tires pretty soon.

    However, I was so impressed with how they handled the snow up here in MI, so I will end up with another set of them (just for the winter on stock 18's) my question is...what do I run in the summer?

    I've been looking hard at the Nitto trail grappler MT's, Nitto terra grappler, Toyo open country MT, and the BFG AT/KO.
    I love the aggressive look my duratracs have, which is why you will see a lot of MT stuff, but truck has never seen a mud hole nor do I think it ever will. It goes in the trails once and a while...but I spend a majority of my time on the road....and towing a boat. So with that being said, I've heard a lot of negatives about the nittos and their tread life...espescially while towing.

    Opinions...other options??

    Thanks guys!

    If tire life is a key concern then choose an AT tire. You already said you don't off-road, much, and you never find yourself in mud holes ... so an AT will serve you very well for mostly road use with very light off-roading. The more aggressive the tire is the worse it's going to wear on the road.

    How do you feel about those Ultra Baron wheels?

    I have been looking at getting a set of Ultras in the future.

    I had a set of Truxxus M/T radials on a Jeep Grand Cherokee I used to own (pic in my album) and had close to 30k miles on them and still had a lot of tread life left on them. I am planning on getting a set either the end of this year or the beginning of next.
