    Are looking for an "all terrain" or something more aggressive like a mud tire? What tires do have now?

    IMHO, it's the driver not the tires.

    But a few I've seen are
    not sure about durability or wear, just have a couple thousand ready every so often

    toyo open country m/t
    mickey Thompson m/t
    Nitto mud grapplers

    I always run all terrains on my truck and I've never been stuck with
    toyo open country a/t
    Mastercraft courser a/t

    but these tires aren't that big

    Get the Terra Grapplers if want a set of aggressive tires that are pavement friendly as well.

    Tire threads are great because you will get 400 different suggestions for 400 different tires:happy:. That being said I have Cooper Discoverer STT. They are a hybrid AT/MT tire. I am looking at getting over 40k miles on them. Have taken them in the mud, and snow and they performed great. In water and in dry the grip has been great as well. I have a running (although slow updates as its not a daily driver anymore) review thread on them. http://www.gmtruckclub.com/forum/showthread.php/52267-Cooper-ST-or-GY-duratrac/page2 the review doesn't start until page 2 as I started the thread looking to narrow down tire selections as well. American made by an American company too.

    I run Mickey Thompson Baja Claws. They are loud as heck on the highway and on long road trips I would have to stop and let them cool down, because the rubber would become super soft. But, They perform spectacular in the mud, sand, and snow. I never have had an issue with traction with them. Actually, I have to be careful because they hook up so good sometimes that I fear that I may twist a drive shaft or axle shaft. I hardly ever have to drop it in 4x4 unless the mud is super deep and sticky or I am pulling someone out. I also ran Dick Cepek Radial fun countrys. They rode nice on the road, did awesome in sand, and decent in mud. When I say "in mud" I mean mud up to nearly the top of my 38.5's.

    Stay away from mastercraft unless you get the a/t's. The rest will get you stuck the snot some old man just spit from the sidewalk... I'm a forever fan of bf-g and nitto. The Falken wildpeak a are great for the first 25% of their life. After that the shoulders bald.
