I run Big O XT's, 315/75-16's on my 96 F-350 and just had to trim the front bumper a little bit.

Define "good offroad grip" for us.

I'm kinda partial to the Toyo M-55 for an all purpose, heavy carcass, last forever, wear really well, all-terrain kinda tire with higher load ratings. I know several people using them on their tow rigs and/or for commercial applications with great results...summer, winter, on and off-road. Not a lot of sex appeal...you won't get crowds outside the grocery store checking out your tires...but if that's what you're want then man are you in the wrong place, lol.

I'm sure that there are several competitive tires to that one, but that's the one that I have personal experience with. Just my $.02, for what it's worth. Happy hunting.

I have seen quite a few PSD's with PJ's on them. I also see a lot of BFG Mudterrain and BFG A/T as well. I think BFG's do not last long. The A/T's do have good all around grip.

BFG M/T. They'll wear like iron if you: 1. Get a full-size (i.e. same size) spare and use it in your tire rotation; and 2. check your tire pressure weekly and rotate often.

They are also load range E

People who ask questions starting with "anyone know" are stupid. Of course we know, thats why you came here to ask.

no kidding, i have seen 35x12.50 at's go 80k, but i just found out my old 2002 psd 4x4 with 35x12.5 bfg muds have 85 k on them. I know htis because i put them on the truck at 1k miles, and i have done the maintenance on it ever since i sold it to a friend of mine with 17k on it. roate tires and check pressure every oil change. now the odo is reading 86k, granted they are almost bald, but they are still wearing even, and there are no bald spots, the one with the least tread has about 1/16 of an inch, and hes replacing them soon. and keep in mind, this is on a ext cab f-250 superduty diesel 4x4 with 35's. so it has to be at least a 7klb rig

i know noone will beleive this, but its the gospel, unnless the odometer is fucked up

ive seen a few sets of m/t with 65k on them, but never 85!?

it may help he does alot of interstate driving

edit: thi sis on just 4 tires, there is no full size spare
