    Hey guys. I have an 3 inch lift and looking for new tires. I want a all terrain tire thats aggressive yet good on highway. I have 265/75/16 general grabbers at2 and they look small. The only size I could find thats kind of bigger with out going to 285s is bfg at 275/70/16 but with it being 70s I loose half inch tall wise. I cant find a tire thats alittle bigger and wont rub. I found a 255/85/16 but they will rub. They have a 255/80/16 but the only tire is the bfg muds. I really need help. I was thinking the duratracs in 267/75/16 cause i heard there more bigger looking cause of the thread but i drive alot so Im thinking they will wear down faster cause of it. Lots of highway driving for me. Whats a good size to go that looks nice on a three inch lift and wont look to small. Thanks guy

    I have read all the threads and you guys say to go tall and skinny but can find any tires in a size that are all terrain . All the tires in 255 are damm muds. And most of the tires only come in load range e. I have e now and its killing my mpg and make it rough. Its hard lol

    These are my 265/75/16 Duratracs on a 3" lift for reference. I put mostly highway miles on myself. These pics are only a month old so for tread reference they have about 20k miles on them. I think they're holding up pretty well.

    255/80/16. I only tire I could find in that size was BFg MUDs. For the 255/85/16 I only found the cooper st. But I heard the cooper st are a heavy tire and some people said it wont fit without trimming. I drive a lot so don't want something to heavy to hurt mpg.

    They look great. Thanks. I was looking at them. Do you have any side pics so I can see how they look and fit the wheel well. Like the truck. Thank

    You can get the big horns in a 6 ply and they last pretty good. They aren't as loud as other M/T's.

    The cooper st in 255/85/16 is load d. I don't see on the site how heavy the tire is ? Right now my generals are 57lbs and load e. way to heavy.

    Those look good on your truck! I've been looking at the Toyo 275/70/16 for mine when the lift gets here but I might just have to reconsider using 265's. Could probably save some weight and mpg.

    Thank you but no thanks lol. I don't want mts. Need all terrains.


    Guess the duratracs are the only tire that looks bigger in 265/75 and performs good

    WTF is the member here who runs the 255 Coopers and loves them? I've been trying to track him down for this thread.
