ok its about time for me to get new tires. i got about 22k miles off the eom tires. i was thinking about getting a new set that are aggressive and the biggest without lifting.
i do very little towing, when i do tow its about 5k pounds. i do very little off-roading, i do live on an unpaved road though, its about 4 miles long and when it rain, the road tends to be very muddy. its mostly for highway driving.with that being said, its an 09 dc4x4 oem tires are 255/70/18. any suggestion? thanks guys. oh if you got pix of your ride with those tires without the lift would be very helpful!:ts:

I can not believe you only got 22K out of your stockers. I would recommend BF All terrains, that is what I had on my dakota and are going on the tundra here in a few months. Just waiting for $$$ and wear out the stockers.

How did you kill your tires in 22k miles?.. I ask because I cant get myself to drop 1.2 k on tires while the OEM are still serviceable. You Sir are a bastion of willpower for having been able to wait 22k miles.

There are lots of options. I have the 275 70 18's with no lift and no modifications. I think you can also get away with 285 65 18's with no lift and no modifications. From what I have read, I think you can also do 305 65 18's but will have to modify the skid plate??? Multiple options for tires including the BFG All Terrains, Cooper Zeon LTZ, Nittos, General Tire, Master Craft Coursers, Kumho All Terrains and multiple others.
