    Depends on your terrain. I have no personal experience with them. I suggest do your research. Don't pick the coolest, or most aggressive tire. Get the one that suits you the best. If your on the road allot get an all terrain.

    The rugged trails have a wide contact patch but no depth. They are wider than 265/75's ya who of thunk it. Im going taller but thinner 255/85/16, coopers not BFG MUDS. The coopers are .4" wider tred .5" thinner sidewalls than the BFG'S and a AT. hope they work.

    You should remove your mud flaps before they scratch the paint where they are mounted to. Looks like it's dragging in one of the pictures.

    Cool. Our trucks can handle the terrain. I try and not scratch mine

    My worry with the front mud flaps was when backing out of danger. I trimmed the front with a tin snip.
