Wanting/ needing to get new tires. I would be getting 315/75/16 (35's). Just thought i would get some opinions from what others have run on theirs. I want a pretty agressive tread. Its not my daily driver but i would still like it to be able to drive down the highway without shaking me to death. And dont want to spend a arm and a leg. I currently have Firestone Destination MT 285/75/16's. I am pleased with how these ride on the road and have good tread pattern. just thought i would get some more input before i go spending $800 :eek2: in tires.

Well i would get those but there quite a bit more than the firestones. I can get the Firestones for 180 a piece which is great for 35's. unless theres anyone who has the hook up on tires let me know.

i like these

http://www.treadwright.com/shopnow/entity/tabid/60/entityname/category/categoryid/16/sename/285-75R16.aspx

they're DOT approved retreads, i run them on my F250 Load range E and they've been great. I've got two other buddies that run them as well. Can't beat the price for what you get.

go to 4x4groupbuy.com, the prices they list are decent but if you call they'll hook you up really good.

I ran the mickey thompson mtz's in the 33" flavor for a while and loved them. got them on flea-bay as "blemished" for quite a good deal.
