hey yall, im looking to get some new tires soon and wanted opinions on the ones i have considered as well as some suggestions. there going to be 35x12.50R15. im looking for a m/t that will get 40K miles, ride good, measure up to around a 35 when on my truck, handle good in the rain, not be too loud, and of course pull pretty good. i relieze that its not going to be great in the mud compared to a super swamper but i dont off road enough to get a swamper, plus my dad is buying the tires so he has to give the okay on them.

The Tires
-MTZ
-BFG and procomp m/t's
-hankook dyanpro m/t
-cooper discoverer stt
-dick cepek mud countries
-maxxis buckshots

as yall can see im trying to keep it under 200 a tire

thanks,

mitchell

out of the ones you listed just choose the one that you think looks the best. MTZ's will probably be the quietest IMO

If you want to stay under 200 a tire your best bet would be buckshots or mud brutes. If i were you i'd spend a little more and get super swamper ssr or iroks, they both last if maintained and pull better than any tires you mentioned:imo

I'd still go with them. I have 25k on my mudbrutes , they almost bald. I've seen 38 ssr go 45k on a f250 and 36 iroks go 55 on a tahoe

im not doubting the mileage, just showing that he already stated that he has no need for a swamper so that recommendation was irrelevant :shake:

buy a set of 37's...the price wont be too outrageous being you are running 15" wheels. They will measure up to a 35-36"

I would get the Cooper STT's. I have them on my truck and I love them. Mine are 33x13.50 on 18x9 wheels. They are super quiet and look great, they really dig in the mud as well. Mine have probably around 5k on them so far and i have no complaints... other than i got raped on how much i paid for mine by a local shop. But they are a great tire.

I run MTZ's and they measuer around 34.5 and im seein prety good mileage. I was seeing awesome mileage but i had some major alignment issues and that messed things up. I got mine shipped to my door for $880. Ebay is your friend. Good luck man.
