Tire opinions

I am going to be in the market for a set of tires here before too long. Trying to decide what I want to get. Right now I have a set of 265/75/16 Goodyear Wranglers on it. I hate these tires. They were new on the truck when I got it a year ago, but are already almost worn out after just 25,000 miles. They are terrible in any kind of mud at all.

Does anyone have any experience with the Kumho Road Venture MT? I really like the look of it, and have read alot of good reviews about it, but I've never seen where anyone has ran it. Was just curious as to the life of the tire, and how anyone likes it. Truck sees mostly highway miles, but I have needed something with more bite at times. Also want to go up to about a 33" tire. So what would I need to look for? 285/70?

If not that tire, I've also considered the usual brands. Toyo Open Country's, and Nitto Terra Grappler. Just can't make up my mind!

Opinions? Suggestions?

Re: Tire opinions

That's what I've heard. The ones I have now are roughly the same tread pattern, but they won't pull themselves out of anything. I park my trailer at my dads down behind his house. If I go to get it after a rain, I have to lock in 4X4 just to get it to move. It's just sloppy mud right on top of the ground, less than 2" deep, but the truck will just sit there and spin. That's why I was considering a MT, even though I don't need it that often.

It's sad to need 4x4 in mud that you can walk through without getting your shoes muddy.

Re: Tire opinions

I looked at those too. How is tread life? They looked really aggressive, which made me wonder if they would last very long. They aren't super noisy on the highway are they?

Re: Tire opinions

i have around ten thousand miles on mine and are doin great!!! hardly even notice the tread wear and just started gettin noisy here in the last week or so but i love em... also when u put tires on use counter act balance beads... its what we use in the semis and they balance the tire for the life of it so you get better tire wear smoother ride and no damn weights on your wheels
