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!

    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
    • Nonetheless there are some forums here which actually have active informative discussions without all of the bafflegab found in this one.
