What would be the best tires to get for a 2000 FORD F-150 without a lift kit? (Also it has 17 inch rims)

I have used and tried a few different brands. The ones I like best are the Good years that came on the truck.

Do you actually use them in the mud, or just want them more for looks? If you you want mud tires, you will also get noise, and less mileage from the tires. I have had BFG Mud T/A's they work great in mud, but are noisy and dont last near as long as a road tire.

for the money you will have into new mud tires and a set of rims you could probley get a old beater pickup to got slashing threw the mud and slop in. then you wouldnt have to worry about wrecking your nice one. IMO i guess

If your actaully mudding/offroading, the goodyear wrangler MTR's rock. I had a set of them and used them for daily driving and plowing. They were awesome. They didnt last real long (again I used them for dd) but while they were on, they were sweet. If I had it to do over again I would have only used them when I went hunting/fishing just to save the tread.

I also like the Coopers. I got a set of the Discoverer STR's (just a touch more agressive that the BFG A/T's) and havent had anything stop me yet. They have had deep snow, mud, rocks and sand thrown at them and have yet to let me down. I can only imagine what the what their real mud tires are like.

I'll second Cooper tires. I've put Discoverer ATR's on the last three trucks I've had.

I have a set of BFG AT T/A KO's on my 2002 F-150 and they have held up well.

In the past, I have also had Goodyear Wrangler A/T's and they done well on my F-150's too.

However, my first recommendation would be the BFG's.

A guy I work with bought a set of those for his tacoma a couple years ago. They have done real well!

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
