Ok have a choice to make, seeing if anyone had any opinions. Looking between remington mud brutes, pro comp mud terrians, and Maxxis buckshots. Any thoughts??? Looking to but a 3 inch body lift and torsion crank on a 2006 tahoe... 305's would work right? Any info on how bad MPG will be :jawdrop:? Thanks for all the info. THANKS.

you'll lose 1-3mpg depending on gear ratio. I would go with the pro comps bc i like sidewall tread but any of those will be cheap and give you a more aggressive look

I have a set of buckshots (285/70/17) on my truck right now. No complaints so far. For the price you really can't beat them, 150 apiece instead of 200 for the pro comps. the buckshots work well in the mud. Also, My buddy has pro comp mud terrains on his jeep and they seemed to wear really fast for 33/12.50/15 on a light jeep.

Maybe check out the Maxxis Bighorns? They look much better than your typical mud terrain :imo . Just get whatever is cheapest.

All mud terrains will perform the same. Get the cheapest one or whichever you trhink looks the same. If you want performance look into interco tires. If not performance look for a gaydial tire that will suit your needs.

Thx for the opinions. Sound like cheapest is the biggest factor. Maxxis Buckshots may be the winner. I know i could do either 305 or 285 but I think i have to do the 305 reguardless of mpg. thx

Depending if your keepin your stock wheels or not, you can run 35's (315's) instead of 33's (305's) if your really wanted to. But, if you don't plan on changing gears and drive everyday, you will thank the 33's for your gas mileage. Anywho, here's a couple pics of Tahoes I have, one with 33's and one with 35's...both have BL's w/ some crankin. Both look great :imo
