I need some new tires

My lift kit is on the way, so I need to get some 38" mud tires ( 38x15.5 16 or 38x14.5 16)

Does anyone here run nitto mud grapplers?..I have toyo mud terrains right now ( 35's) and they are great on road, but i want something more aggressive off road. I also want radials..no bias

When I need new tires i'm thinking of going with either

http://www.4wheelparts.com/Tires/Sup...t_pn=SSTM16-58

or

http://www.kumhousa.com/tires/light-...errain/KL71.do

The Superswampers from what I hear are great off road and get good wear on the road. The Kumho's are suppose to be just like the toyo m/t's but much cheaper

I like the BFG Mud's KM2 good in mud and good on wear, ok on looks.......If I wanted a mean off road tire I would lean toward SuperSwaper TSL's, I like those, but hear that they wear fast on pavement


I only drive in the city, to get out of it!!!

oh you want them for a 16...that gets harder and harder all the time to find a big tire for small wheel. Especially with load range D or E
