    Its time to buy tires. Im looking for some mud grips mainly. Probably run 285/70/17 but may try to fit 305's with a 3 inch front spacer lift. Anybody have recommendations. I do a lot of highway driving but i want good mud performance too. Suggestions? Really worried about tread life. I may end up going with the Ko2's but really looking for something more aggressive. How much more tread life do the bfgoodrich allterrains have over the m/t

    If you want mud or off-road tires, then worrying about tread life is sort of counter-productive. Since you are doing a lot of highway driving them maybe search for the quietest mud/off-road tire.
