I drive an '06 chevy silverado and I have been running cooper a/ts but I want to buy some m/ts. Next year I will probably be doing a lot of driving back and forth from college, so I need a mud tire that will last. At the same time, I want a tire that will pull well in the mud. My a/ts are crap in most mud. I need to be able to pull people out and get where I need to go when I'm hunting. I live in south carolina so mud and trails are about the only extreme terrain that I deal with. Also I can deal with some noise, but I don't want an obnoxious whine like mud grapplers. I have been looking at forums and asking around, trying to figure out what tire would best suit my needs and I have heard and read different things from everywhere. I especially couldn't find that much information about tread life on the fierces because they're a newer tire, so if anyone has experience with them, that would be appreciated. The tires that I have looked at are: Toyo Open Country M/T Fierce Attitude M/T Nitto Trail Grappler M/T BFG KM2 Cooper STT I'll be getting 35s on a 17 inch rim What suggestions would yall make? Any response is appreciated.
