    I've already decided to powder coat my factory 17" wheels but I having a little trouble picking a tire. I'm stuck between:

    Nitto Terra Grappler
    BFGoodrich All-Terrain KO
    Nitto Dune Grappler

    (I'm going with a 285/70R17 tire with a 3" lift and wheel spacers.)

    I originally wanted to go with the BFGs but after seeing the other two I'm torn. I've always put BFG All-Terrains on my trucks so I know how they perform. But what kind of ride and treadlife am I looking at with the other 2? How do they compare to the BFGs? Is there anyone that has pics of these 3 tires in a 285?
