'02 F350 wheel/tire recommendations

I've got an '02 F350 crew cab diesel (4 full doors, i think that's a crew cab). I've got 2 extra leafs in front and 1 in rear (for holding up a curtis industrial plow) and it sits pretty high. I currently have Nitto 315's on it (i believe that's approx. 35") that i got used on "work truck" steel super duty rims that i painted black. They're pretty well worn and I'm tired of switching out winter and summer tires so looking for a full time tire. I only plow my own drive/road now, so not TOO concerned about plowing but i keep the plow on all winter and want them to wear decent. This is a dd and tow vehicle for my jeep but I'm a big hunter and it is often in mud and trails. Either looking to repaint the current wheels (not real crazy about the stock chrome look sitting in garage) or get a set of black wheels, too. I really like an aggressive look but honestly can give up a little off-road performance to gain some on-road manners and wear. I have the jeep for beating on Any ideas/suggestions? Thanks in advance. (oh, btw I'm looking for either 305's or 315's)

I'm running 315 Nitto Terra Graplers. I like them and they are wearing great.

X2 on Tera Grapplers!!! Awesome in the dunes, 85 on the highway, towing 15000 lb trailer with 2 rigs, and over 50% tread left at almost 40,000 miles! I had my stock aluminum wheels powder-coated and re-installed the chrome center caps. It looks sweet and the finish is almost bullet-proof. Wipes clean every time.

I run Toyo open country at's on my 06' crew cab and I love them! I do also plow and they handle realy good. I'm working on my 3rd set on my truck and will run nothing else

Chiefwoohaw, that truck looks familiar, are you on powerstroke.org?

anyways, i'm a big fan of the nitto terra grapplers if you're looking for an all terrain, i'd shy away from pro-comp tires, on these heavy truck's i've read of some people with the pro-comps seperating and literally falling apart.

I have BFG all terrains and i'm not impressed at all with them. I'll probably go with a set of terra grapplers next if i stay all terrain, or i'm lookin at the kuhmo KL71 mud terrain if i go that route next time around.

Thanks all, I think terra grapplers are my verdict! Chiefwoohah that is EXACTLY my truck. Color, and look with blacked out rims.

Is there any lift on your truck? Leveling kit? or heavy service front end?
