    Don't ever buy Iron man mud tires it will be one of the worst decisions of your life. I used to work at Discount tire so I know what i'm talking about.Save up go to discount tire and go get you some Nittos or bfgs that have a mileage warranty and you can also get the certs on them so if anything ever happens to the tires you will get new ones for free.

    Just bought Falken Wilpeak 265/70-17 for $114. Walmart had them on sale and Discount price matched. You can find good tires at cheap prices if you take the time to look. No need to cheap out on tires.

    This 100%. 40k truck and priceless safety of you and families.....IMO not an item worth saving 3-400$ over the life of the truck.

    I've had P265/75R16 Hankook Dynapro ATMs on my truck for 4 years. They had 13/32 of tread when new, Still have 9/32 remaining. I drive off-road a lot, no punctures and minimal chunking, they still hook up pretty good. They have been great in snow, ice and rain.

    These were the cheapest option I considered.

    I'd add engine oil and maintenance to that list.

    About to go in for my 15k didn't know there was so much to grease in a 4x4 =)

    Their car tires aren't bad at all but the mud tire he has linked is absolutely terrible.

    Just about every tire made here in the US regardless of manufacturer costs under $40 to make. Most are around $30. Not defending Chinese tires as they are junk and no one should be buying them.

    Locker and Lights, so everything
    The point is though that the $40 manufacturing cost in the US is at least with better labour and materials than what they're using in China. Also that $25 in China includes profit, so manufacturing cost would be much less which is why they often use poor materials.

    My wholesale company's brand tire is Ironman and Hercules. Ironman is just fine- however...I'd go with the Hercules M/T. That is what I run on my truck. Hercules road-hazard protection warranty is unmatched and they'll honor just about anything that comes through. They're made by Cooper as well.

    They price matched for me also, and they're breaking down my stock tires and pulling the TPMS sensors out and reinstalling them in the new setup for free.

    Im running iron man all terrains now that were off of my 2nd gen. Those steelies are my winter wheels now.
    Those are my second set and really have no complaints.

    Although after these wear out im goin with Falken Wildpeaks for dedicated winter tire. Wife has those on her 4Runner and they are great!

    I’m running Nexan roadian pro ATs in 285/75/17 they are a Korean tire got them from Walmart online. They’ve been a good tire slight road noise but wearing like iron have no complaints but seem to be more of a aggressive street tire. But hey m + s rating.
    The coopers I had prior were leaps and bounds better.

    What didn't you like about them? I love mine so far. It's been about 6 months.

    I am just looking for others experiences on off brand tires.
    I was under the impression that I needed some amount of lift to fit the tires. What do you know that I am missing on how to run 285/75/16 without lift? Please share.

    I didnt say I could not afford the name brand tires. I was asking for people's experiences. I did not see your experience with them. Did I miss something? Regurgitated opinions about things without adding anything new does not move the conversation forward.
