Help picking a tire???

I have an 09 4x4 double cab short bed. I'm putting a 3 inch lift on it, I have trd trail team wheels going on after the lift. The tire I'm looking at is an 285/75/16 terra grappler. I plan on driving 80 - 90% street so I'm not thinking a M/T will be needed. But I still want a aggressive looking tire!

Just looking for input and feedback on tire sizes and brand etc...

Terra Graplers Suck IMO! I bought some rims from a friend, had terra grapplers with 10k mounted already, so i drove with them for about another 10k, and they were worn to the max. just my two cents

Cooper AT3s are great, I just got them in 235/85r16. They are super quiet on the freeway. And they were only 147$ through Discount Tire Direct.

I have the Michelin M/S2. I would highly recommend them if you are looking for a tire that is mainly for on-road, but still handle fairly well off-road. Only draw back is they don't have a very aggressive look.

An aggressive looking A/T would be something like the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac or Kelly Safari TSR. Maybe even the Hercules Terra Trac D/T.

That's a nice looking tire. Like the rims too, but I guess I'm biased since I have the same ones in anthracite

You got the E rated BFG AT's that have black side walls.. No white letters. The 285's come in 2 versions "D rated" with white letters and "E rated" with black side walls.
