Talking Tire Options

So now that I have a 2" Auto Spring kit in trasit. I'll be looking for tire options next.

What is a good kind of tire out there that works well with this truck for all 4 seasons in Southern Ont. I personaly like the BFG M/t's But maybe this time I will not go so aggresive. I would like to keep my stock 20" rims and not go higher than a 34" tire.

So post away with pic's so I can see what they look like for a side view and the tire tread.

edit: the 2" kit is now in Vancover.

I really like the look of the Cooper Zeon LTZ if was keeping with a slightly lower profile more aggressive tire.
But have never tried them either

Question.. Is your kit just the front lift or front and rear?

this is the tire I am running on my truck in a 315/70/17 less aggressive than a M/T tire but work really well and they don't have the road hum like a M/T

I've got the Cooper Zeon LTZ's & love them. Pics are in my album.

Another good option would be the Nitto Terra Grapplers, Toyo Open Country A/T, Hankook ATM RF10 or Goodyear Duratracs.

If you want to go more aggressive....I hear great things about the Nitto Trail Grapplers...not sure how they fair in our winters though.

Not for all 4 seasons, but maybe 3 seasons...I would suggest the Bridgestone Dueller Revo 2's...had them on my Silverado before it got jacked and loved the tires and the look.

I'm a believe in winter tires though, if you want to cover all four seasons.

Ok so thanks for the info from all of you. From searching the web with your options. I don't like the Bridgestone Dueller Revo, Toyo Open Country A/T, Hankook ATM RF10. Those 3 are 2 boring looking and they don't look to be that good for the snow,sand,mud.

Now the Cooper Zeon LTZ's look cool and I will look into them.

Now I like the Nitto Terra Grapplers, Nitto Trail Grapplers and the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac and the BF Goodrich MT KM2

Make sure you're looking at the Revo2's, not the Revo's or some other Dueller line. The Revo 2's may not be your cup of java, but boring they are not.

These are mine with the KMC rims I had...

Also...just a tip...you really have to see them in real to judge them. For some the pictures don't do the tires justice until you see them in real. I too was considering the Zeon LTZ's before I got the Revo2's, but once I saw them in real, I did not like them. The Revo2's I didn't like in the pictures, but happen to see them at Costco one day and was surprised how much different they looked in person. Same with the Toyo A/T...didn't like them till I saw them...the guy I bought the rims for the Silverado in the above picture had the Toyo's and they looked great in real.

Remember, especially if you're looking for a year round tire, looks shouldn't be your first criteria.

If you go winter/summer, then you can get a lot more picky on looks for the summer.
