    What do you guys think? I've got a friend that can get me a really good deal on them, and I'm thinking about getting them, but if they aren't a good tire I'll hold off and save up more for the Terra Grapplers, also if I kept my stock steel wheels, would there be anything needed to get the 285/75/16s to fit?

    285 might need some trimming on a 2.5 - 3 inch lift.

    and the destinations, ive heard half and half, some people say they're good but others say they dont do that well with traction off road.

    I would save for the terras.

    Alright so a little trimming for 285s, I'm not sure what I'm gonna do, because he can get all Firestone, and what is it Bridgestone? Tires at prices just above wholesale. So I'm still looking at options, maybe the M/T or Bridgestone Dueler M/T.

    I have the same tires i was impressed with the ratings they got on http://www.tirerack.com and they were the lightest A/T tire i could find with a C load rating. I've had them for just over a year now and i love them they're quiet on the highway and i couldn't believe some of the things they've taken me through.

    As for the size to run that big of a tire you're going to need to look at a lift and possible trimming your forward cab mounts and inside your fenders if you plan to do any sort of offroading this is because of how wide they are. I ran 265/75/16 tires on stock suspension, now i have a lift but i've never had them rub.

    Do you offroad alot?
    If not, then I would say stick with the A/T's.
    But those Dueler M/T's do look pretty nice.

    I haven't, partly because I can't really get off-road with the Dunlops. I'm looking to tho, and I'm thinking about the M/Ts I'd just have to see what the price is.
