Guys I need your help please. I’m looking for quiet off road tires for my 2006 Lexus LX470. I was debating between Cooper Discoverer STT Pro or BFG KO2’s. Or if you can recommend better ones. Also what is the biggest size I can go without modifications? Thank you.

I would recommend the BFG AT KO2 in 265/70R18. Not as good in mud as an MT but verry good in snow and probably your best bet if you want reasonably quiet.

I feel like ko2’s suck in the rain (what I have now). I thought they were worthy in Light snow in an awd application. I wouldn’t get smaller than 275/70r18. My brother in law has Toyo rt’s and they’re pretty rad but a significant price jump

I am looking at the Falken Wildpeak or Firestone just came out with the Destination X/T (KO2 replica it seems). I like the price of the Falken in either a 265/70/18 or 275/65/18 LT. Can't determine if the Firestone/BFG are better tires but they cost more for sure.

X2 for the Falkens, I live in the mountains of montana. Bought a set of these on the advice of my tire guy locally. Absolutely love them. Just put a new set of the spare truck. They go through mud, snow and ice like Sh*t through a tied coon. For a daily driver, part time trail rider they are great. Quiet too..

The wildpeak M/T.... Also, I did have them siped when I bought them. Does WONDERS on ice around here.

Another great one if you don't see much mud is the Hancook I-pike. All of the ranchers around here run the crap out of those tires in the snow. They can be studded as well. Awesome tires and last a LONG time, tread wears like iron on them.

Based on some threads here on MUD and watching reviews on youtube, I went with the Continental All Terrrain Contacts in 275/65/18. Supposedly they're really quiet and handles wet and snow very well. It's a light weight tire at 41 pounds so it's great on highway.

I'm getting these installed tomorrow so I'll report back with my initial impressions.
