99 LC. The truck sees a lot of conditions including mud/snow/highway/farm roads. This is not a mall cruiser by any means. What are your opinions on tires? I need 4 new ones. I have tried Radial Rovers, Michelin LTX's (did not like), Big O.

Thanks.

Get five. You need a spare, right?

Oh yeah, try the SEARCH function, newbie.

Did not want to search. Too many new tires/tire companies are out.

That is why I asked.

What do you run?

Thanks for the welcome. Been here a while though.

I think wob meant for you to use the search button on ih8mud; this topic has been covered several times.

But to be so audacious to say you don't want to search period....? How do you expect any of us to want to help if you don't want to do anything for yourself? :rolleyes:

Just to make things simple for you, I think most people will probably recommend BFG All terrains, or maybe Goodyear MTR's, but there are as many opinions on tires as there are people on the board.

No audacity here. I know what he meant. And I meant that I wanted up to date information/opinions not an old post. I certainly did not mean to come across as lazy or anything else. If I were searching for methods to flush a radiator, then a search would have done the trick.

Thank you for those of you who replied.

Second that. The tread design are pretty mild but they are pretty capable off road except deep mud.

What size are you looking for? If you want bigger than 285 then they are not for you.

I always put MT on my SUV but on my 99 I decide to get quieter tire and my REVO pretty much exceed all my expectation.

I am more than halfway on my Michelin LTX M/S, I am thinking about Goodyear Wrangler MT/R for my next set. :)

Actually, looks like I'm now headed in another direction.

I run the Kelly Springfield Safari MSR in 285/75/16 on my '93... A very agressive A/T tread. They soak up bumps great and can air down very well. The sidewalls are TOUGH. Most of my experience is with a set in 33x9.50/15 on my '72 FJ40. I beat the daylights out of those tires and they have never let me down. Not even a flat yet!!! Here's a pic...
