    Everyone has a different opinion. Just do some research on here and tire websites to make your decision. :thumbsup:

    Single Chamber Mello-Tone Catback. 3" toytec Suspension lift. 285-75-16 BFG KM2's Drop in K&N. Blacked out badges.
    I originally had maxxis bighorns, i only spent around 650 for those. And i got about 35-40000 miles out of them, but 98% of those miles rode like s***. Last week i broke down and finally spent the money and got a set of BFG KM2's. and so far i love them, they are really quiet compared to the bighorns.
    Hope this helps.

    My buddy got these. Cooper discoverer S/T's. They have barely worn any and he's had them over 6 months. They are really aggressive but not like a mud tire. The tread is great. For the money thats what I would suggest.

    I have those in 255/85/16 that I bought blemished off ebay (no white walls). HUGE mistake, now I have horribly vibrating tires that won't balance right. They do perform awesome in the mud though.

    I just got some General AT2's 285/75/16 which are AT and they look pretty aggressive and I think the price was right. They were like $770.00 shipped to the house

    Check out treadwright.com I have only seen good reviews on these guys. Retreads can be debated elsewhere but they're worth taking a look at if you don't want to break the bank.

    I have the Hankook Dynapro ATM's and love them. Best tire I could find for a low price. For me it was a cheap way to get rid of the stock Dunlops without breaking the bank. Would definitely buy them again.

    I was always told that "Mastercraft Tires" are made by Cooper.
    I have the Cooper Discoverer M&S 10 ply on my full size van and I have at least 40K miles on these tires and they still look like new
    I am impressed with the Cooper Tires and when it comes time when I need tires for my Taco, it will be Cooper, or maybe Mastercraft.

    False.

    My experience with the STT's (which has been quite a bit) are crap. Yes they look good and are mean as hell. But if you want to turn around and have to buy tires after 10,000 miles I would not recommend these. They don't last anytime.
