I know this has been discussed frequently, but I'm about to purchase new tires and maybe wheels soon. Replacing stock size tires with 33's.

I recently changed jobs and have a 65 mile roundtrip commute daily, all highway. I'm not gonna cry about gas mileage, its a truck. I may buy a beater car in the near future for work.

I'm more concerned about wearing my tires fast. What are the some of the best 33x12.50 tire options for combination highway and minor off-road trips (I do a lot of hunting)? I don't want to drop $1,000 on tires and in 6 months see fast wear. So it would have to be a harder compound tire. General Grabber II AT's any good?

Nitto trail graps or toyo open country m/t are some of the longest lasting mud terrains. Don't have much experience with all terrains but I hear nitto and Toyos excel in that category as well.

mickey thompson ATZ... we have 40K miles on a set on my f-250 and they have a lot of tread left.

the goodyear attitude m/t is also a good tire.


with a mud grip on a ifs truck its ideal to rotate them often to prevent them from scalloping

Friend of mine runs the bfg at ko tires because they last forever. Ive heard the same from other people about them.

Another for BFG AT KO's. But I'd go with the KO2's now since theyre supposed to last even longer.

just make sure you rotate the tires every 5k miles and get an alignment after the new tires, you'll be fine. bfg's wear like concrete. and LT tire will also last longer than a P tire.

You guys seem to have really good luck with bfgs guys around me arnt a big fan on gravel they would chunk apart and in mud packed up the tread quickly is the k02 design that much better?

For long lasting highway driving, I would say they BFG's as well.

before we had the ATZ on the f-250 we had the bfg all terrain. This truck spends a lot of time on limestone roads and the BFGs chunked really bad. Only lasted 30k

The fierce attitudes on my f-250 currently have 52k miles on them.. I will roll them till 60K

No more BFG's for me, Nitto or Toyo.

That was my experience as well with bfgs. Great on the road, but sucked in gravel and mud

My experience as well. Why I said good for "highway" use.
