    Bilstein 5100s with Eibach coils, 265/75R16 Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs, BAMF Rock Sliders, BAMF Behind Grill Light Bar w/ Hella 500's, Grillcraft MX Series Grill, Cobra CB w/ PA Speaker
    So I'm getting a new set of tires for my truck. I have no lift yet and wont be lifting for a long time, so im getting 265/75R16's. i wanna upgrade to an all terrain tire from my uniroyal highway tires. should i go nitto terra grapplers, bfg all terrains, or general grabbers? i want something quiet but something that will last me a while. yet still aggressive.

    i love my grabbers man. good aggressive look, good on the trails, and a very streetable tire. They are not a very good mud tire but otherwise fantastic in my opinion. people get great mileage out of them, just keep them rotated.

    I would go with the bfgs. Ive never really heard of any problems with bfg. I've run two sets of km2's, my sister has the a/t's on her fj, and a bunch of people around here run them. I love them and have heard nothing but good things. A little pricey, but as they say you get what you pay for.

    my bad dude. I dont know anything about those ones. the at2s are sweet. IMO they are pretty much the same tire as the bfg's but half the price, and twice the mileage.

    Yeah they hook up great in snow, dirt, mud etc...

    I have about 15,000 miles on them and they still have good sized knobbies.

    lol i kinda wanted the genrals for the sidewall haha the red matches the taco, but i mean they are aggressive looking too. but im also 19 and dont wanna pay more for gas than i have to. so i think grabbers are out fo the question. i do want them in the long run tho after lifting and stuff. but you got factory suspension right? no rubbing when u take tight turns? cus i saw u had the same size im looking at getting

    well so far its lookin like nittos are winning... but should i go 265/70 to avoid the rubbing? full lock happens all the time and it will bug the living hell outta me.

    Far more better choices out there, but I would go with the BFG's or the Grabber's

    i mean so far the prices i got show terras are cheapest too, and i havent heard a bad thing about them yet. grabbers are cool looking, but i think ill wait to throw down the cash for that when i lift my truck. and sorry not interested in payin extra for wheels. i barely have enough for new tires themselves lol. and duratracs just dont float my boat. sorry to be picky, but im 19 and have a small budget too haha.
