    I recently installed fender flares to my 2014 Crewmax 4x4, I currently have 285/55/r20 tires on XD series machine black wheels 20"x9, 2 1/2" leveling kit already installed. looking to go with 295/65/r20 are bigger without adding any more lift for now. The new fender flares have taken away some of the aggressive look I had.

    So, are you looking for tire recommendations?
    I would recommend the following to look into for sizing:
    Cooper STT
    Duratracs
    Toyo
    Nittos

    I got Nitto Terra Grappler's almost 4 years ago and they lasted 87 thousand miles and still had a little thread on them before I place a second set of 4 new Terra Grapplers G2's on them two weeks ago. I highly recommend them as they are all terrain and also are very quiet on the highway. Can't beat that.

    I just got a set of the Cooper S/T Maxx and wow, really love them. Aggressive tread, and no tread noise at all. Inflated at 40 psi. Very reasonably priced too at $242 a tire at Discount Tires. LT295/70R18. My wheel offset is +18. 34.25" overall

    Tat2ude39, let's see them bad boys, that's the tire I'm looking to get. I'm hoping they will fit my truck with 2.5 leveling kit and +60 factory rims

    I'll post up some pics tomorrow, weather was a little rainy here today and you know I can't post no pics of a dirty truck! A few other PRO guys have added the 295/70R18's to their stock wheels without much rubbing. I think they removed the little front mudflaps?

    Check out the new toyo R/T. They are fairly new model toyo came out with. It's in between the A/t & m/t. You get the look of the m/t aggressive but the road noise of an a/t and it comes with milage warranty.

    If you are looking for an aggressive look, it's difficult to beat Nitto Trail Grappler. It has very nice road manner as well for a M/T tire.SS Tire.jpg

    I think that question is going to garner responses to lean towards their favorite. I think you need a little more info on what you plan to use them for. Things like percentage of off road vs. on road use, type of use,towing, comfort on road over performance,noise concerns, etc. in the photo it appears you are Midwest/east so maybe that places the priority in wet traction?

    When it comes to tires you can ask 50 people and get 50 different responses. I bought Good Year Dura Tracs when they first came out for my Tacoma. Looked good and a great all around tread with plenty of siping. Now you see them everywear. I have Nitto Trail Grappler M/T's and they are a great tire. Pretty aggressive for DD but I am only couple miles from work. I will probably switch back to Dura Tracs when the Nitto's wear out. A couple of years ago I was at BP's processing facility at Milne Point up on the North Slope AK. BP had a large fleet of F250s up there and they all had Dura Tracs. Roads were gravel,icy,iffy at best and -70 degrees sometimes and over 70 in the summer months. Great place for tire testing. Good tire for midwest winters. Just saying.

    Did you have the 285/55/20's on bfore the leveling kit? I'm thinking of using that set up but want to make sure the tires wont rub.

    Louisiana? Nitto G2's or M/T's would look great. I am thinking the occasional mudding?
