tires

Recommended Posts

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!

    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
    • I would agree with Purple.   Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps.   You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue.     You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks.    A few bucks more gets a holder.
