new tires

Hey Guys,

new to the site and to owning a truck...and actually doing work on a vehicle so could really use some help.

Ive started doing some work on the truck. Nothing major just swapped out the grille to a raptor grille but now looking to get some rims and tires. Ive done some research and talked to a few buddies from work. The one friend that has done alot of work recommended some toyo tire m/t and then when i went to the tire shop they also recommended cooper tires i was looking into those and notice the st maxx and the stt. Just wondering what your thoughts might be on those? Looking to go with just making the truck look a tad bit meaner than it already is

any suggestions help

thanks guys

Matt

First off welcome.

All those tires you mentioned are very aggressive, especially the Toyo M/T.

Will you ever drive the truck in mud? Mud tires are noisy, heavy and actually aren't that good in snow/ice conditions.

If you don't care about those things and just want the aggressive look go for it. They're also usually more expensive. A good all terrain tire like a BFG AT KO or new KO2, Goodyear Duratrac, Toyo Open Country A/T would be my suggestion, still a bit of an aggressive look but still good for highway/street driving.

I have 285/65/18 BFG AT KO's and they've got a good look and have worn pretty well. I've got about 90,000km on them and I'll get another 5-10k easy.

Welcome to fordtough.ca, home of the Canadian F150 enthusiast.

I'd agree with herbz recommendation for the BFG All Terrains, I've had numerous sets.

There's a little more road noise, but if you're going more aggressive tread pattern, that's a compromise you may not be worried about.

I prefer to run Blizzaks in the winter, my own personal opinion that the BFG's were good, but not as good on ice as a dedicated winter tire.

Hope this can help someone still looking for tires.

Press on regardless!

I've got the cooper AT3s as does my old man and a friend. No complaints from anyone yet and the price was good. cant comment on wear but seems to be good so far.

I've got the Cooper Zeon LTZ's & have no complaints about them. They look aggressive but ride like they're a street tire.

Yea man, everyone wants the super aggressive tires cause they're mean looking but if you aren't making your rig a purpose built offroader then a solid all terrain will be your best bet. The BFG KO2 are best in there category, they are still a little aggressive looking and winter rated with the snowflake symbol. I mean.....they threw them out of a plane and then drove off on them Youtube it.
