    I was wondering I'm looking for wheels and tires and I'm looking at the xd black wheels I'm not sure if I wanna go 17" or stay 16" and I kind want to get a wider tire so it is past the wheel well a little bit without spacers and I have a 3 inch leveling kit on it

    These are not for you then if you dont off road alot, but it's up to you. They wont last too long and will have horrible road noise. The bf goodrich KO2 are amazing or even the Cooper st maxx

    Yeah I agree with him m, mt tires are not the best for highway and most are loud at speeds.
    But look up the atturo xt or the falken at3
    They are in your price range

    See I go hunting and fishing alot and I go off road like 40% of the time driving so I need like a aggressive AT or a happy median between AT and MT I don't mind the noise or mpg loss

    If money isn't a problem I would get the duratracs or BFG ko2s, I had the duratracs in the past and they handle amazing but heard nothing but great things from ko2s

    I got two pair of general grabber at2's
    One summer one winter.
    I wish they howled alittle more..There almost silent:frusty:
    Ice they do ok.
    Snow they do great.
    Mud and sand seem to do ok but I'm not driving through deserts or anything.
    I am 90% on road. But September - December lots of offroad bowhunting trail.
    I have 0 complaints. Paid $120-$130 each.
