    Well good luck, don't think you'd be disappointed. 10 ply tires for a steal at discount. They are 285/70/17. If you took em up to OBX they'd do great

    The coopers are the meanest and best looking of the 3. I'd go with them

    Dude, those are all badass tires. I've been runnning the Cooper STTs for a couple of weeks now, love 'em. They are good on the road and sick in the dirt/mud/snow. From the bit of research I did they provide a higer mileage for wear than the BFGs too.

    I've run BFGs for almost 15 years before these Coopers and know that BFGs are great tires.

    I have no experience with the Hancooks but people that run them are usually super loyal to them and claim they are great.

    Personally I think the Coop STTs look best on the taco: gnarly but not rediculous overkill. They are all great choices tho.

    They look better clean, that 265/75-16 under a 2"

    bump. im in the same dilemma between the hankooks and the km2's. i like the km2's because they come in a 10.5 but i like the hankooks because of the mielage i hear they last. also its less trimming with the 10.5's. any opinions and why youd run them? experiences with either tire?

    i haven't really looked in to the wrangler mtr's very much but her they are a pretty god tire, not sure i like how agressive they are tho, that's kinda why im leaning towards the hankook, about 75-80% of my driving is on the road,
