    I'm needing new tires but can't decide the size or the brand. Need some I suggestions please. I currently have 265/75/16 but would like to go bigger with a possible 3" lift and minimal trimming. I'm also looking at the 18" Rockstar rims as a possibility with a set of new tires. Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    With no lift you can do 265/65/18, with a lift and trimming you can do 285/65/18.

    They are the second most "bro" rim ever, behind the moto metal skulls.

    What do you suggest then? I'd like to go with some black rims with a little chrome for the contrast.

    i haven't really looked at too many styles that's why i'm taking suggestions. My brother is the one who turned me on to the Rockstars. How does everyone feel about the Nitto Terra Grapplers?

    What's a good brand that i'll get at least 40K out of? I've got Big O's right now but my tire shop quit carrying them so i'm going with something different this time.

    Agreed. I don't care for the center caps though, they are a bit too large....

    Mostly Highway but I go off road during hunting season. Very little snow. Maybe 3 times a year. I need something that is good in mud since i use my truck instead of an ATV.
