Default Tires!!!!!! What should I Buy????????????????

Well I have a trade pending on my Burban & when it goes though I'll be in the market again for some new tires so here my question to you all.. What in your opinion is the best tire in the 37/38 range to run on a DD that is also going to be a weekend warrior!!! Would greatly appreciate all of your input & real word experiences on this subject .

Thanx in advance

trXus are pretty nice too, but I'd personally go with BFG KM2 if I were looking for a M/T.

I have been leaning towards the Km2's but I've hear that they Suck in the rain and snow & also wear fast for a radial. That's is why I deiced to start this post.

I ran a set of 38" Nitto Mud Grapplers and a set of 38" Mickey Thompson MTZ's on my old F-250, and both were good tires...but both had bad points. The Nittos were great offroad, but were insanely loud on road...I wouldn't recommend them for rig that will spend much time on the street. The MTZ's were much quieter, but didn't ballance as well, and the compound seemed a little soft...found a few things stuck in the tread that would have never made it into the nittos.


For my new truck, I think I'm going to go with toyo MT's (33x12.5r20). A friend of mine has them on his titan (34's) and they seem like great tires. Very quiet for a MT, and so far great tread life. They performed very well at the dunes, and did great on the trails too. You wont find any negative reviews on these tires, just a few complaints on the price...but you are definitely getting a quality tire.

I just got my 33" BFG Allterrian T/A KO, and LOVE em, they did great backing up over a large entrance obstacle in 2WD....and stop on a dime in the rain..

Handle great on the road too....just more of a DD than the m/t

I used to manage a tire store and got to try several diff. tires. Went to several ride and drives and compared tires. I was also sponsored by bfg to race and can tell you, I run cooper stt's. Great in the winter, last about 50k+, and are not that loud. Let me know if you want them I can also get them at wholesale cost, but you will have to get them mounted. The new mtr kevlars are not bad. Stay away from the old style the chop up easy. Have not been super impressed with life of the km2's. Nitto mud grapplers look cool, but are dangerous in the rain let alone snow and are louder the baja claws.
