Tire choice advice

I'm wanting to put 285s on my truck im looking for either an aggressive all terrain or a milder mud tire. Plan on putting them on my stock 16x7 wheels once i get a set of spidertrax spacers. Need to perform decently well in mud, dirt, sand, and on the road. Dont care about snow. Dad has BFG ATs on his yukon and loves them.

Wrong question to ask since everyone has their favorite tire. I had BFGs on my Ranger and they were great. I have Duratracs now and they are pretty good. I suggest picking a tire then searching on here for comments about them.

I vote KM2s, awesome in a lot, except ice. Air em down, and even more capable! Plus you can get a bit of mileage out of them... Just my opinion. pick one that suits your needs!

I've got a set of BFG KM's on my truck now, and tomorrow will have a new set of KM2's.

I thought about the nitto mud tire, but they don't last as long I'm told so the cash you save up front just wears out faster.

thanks ive thouroughly researched pretty much every damn tire im just looking for a few opinions from people who have used em. km2s look good a few of my friends use them and ive seen them perform. i'm new on here sorry if im in the wrong section. ive got a 2.5 inch lift so i know they will fit. km2s seem to be the way to go. anyone heard anything good about dynapro mt's or those fierce attitude mt's?

I've got about 43,000 on my Duratracs and am really thinking I will replace them with another set. They have been a great tire in the snow and are surprisingly quite for how aggressive they are. I keep looking at other tires but keep on coming back to Duratracs.

It's a tough decision since you are gonna be stuck with whatever you select for 3-4 years depending on how many miles you drive. So, I understand, you wanna get it right. IMHO -- you can't go wrong with Duratracs.
