Aggressive, Long Wearing Tires
11-21-2003, 07:04 PM
Post: #1
 
I want to starting looking at various tires for my truck. I am going to hopefully have new tires on around Springtime.......hopefully my stock Michelin's will be pretty worn out by then. I was going to start buying them one at a time and spread the cost out a bit.

I am going to install a 2" metal coil spacer kit and run 315/75R-16 sized tires.

What is the most aggressive and long lasting/wearing tire out there?

On my last truck, 1993 Dakota 4x4, I have used Dunplop Radial Rover RV, Hoosier Radial All Terrain AT (no longer made, but GREAT tire), BFG AT KO, and Goodyear Wrangler ATs. All lasted a good amount of time, with the Goodyears lasting the least(about 35,000 miles) and the BFG AT KOs lasting the longest (70,000 miles). I have always wanted a bit more traction though!! Anyways, these above tires are basically good general purpose all terrain tires. I really liked the BFGs and they are on the top of my list. However, is there anything more offroad friendly or more aggressive that will also last? I am not trying to get 70,000 miles again out of these new tires, cause those BFGs were on a much smaller and lighter truck. However, I would like to find a tire which will provide my truck with more traction when needed, but also wear good and be street friendly.

Road/Offroad conditions encoutered: Water, Snow, Clay, Mud. Not really ever done any sand wheeling.

So far, I have looked into Goodyear MTR, BFG MT KM, or the ProComp tires(either in the Mud Terrain or the XTerrain). Any others to consider??

HMMM.......
I would love either of those, especially with their 6-10 ply ratings. However, I really don't think I need a full blown out mud tire like the TSL Radial or the SSR Radial. What kind of tread life/mileage do these get? I bet they are really loud though.

What about that TRXUS Radial? They are marketed as "Smooth, super quiet ride with tough thick sidewalls." 10 PLY!!

Like I said, I think my truck and my truck's uses would be better geared for an aggressive all terrain tire, especially for daily driving.

I ran two sets of Big O XT's back to back they worked great on and off road. They last a long time and they are not very loud.
I know they aren't as aggressive as TSL's or SSR's but if your going to do a lot of street driving they might be a good choice.
Nothing I hate to see more than 39" boggers on a truck that doesn't leave the pavement.
By the way, I do have a set of 315/75r 16's for sale. Rolling Eyes
