I am looking for new tires on my 2002 FX4 f150. I have MT 33" MTZ on her now but dont do as much mudding as i used to.

I am looking for a good A/T tire that i can get good gas milage with not to load but can still handle off road a bit. would also like them to look rough.

ones i have in mind are:
Cooper leon
MT ATZ
Wrangler Silent Armor

BFG all terrain, nitto terra grapplers, or toyo open country are all pretty good

Check, check and check.

FWIW, in my experience working in the industry, and as a fullsize truck owner...

Toyo's wear and balance best.
Nitto's are the most affordable and offer most consistent traction.
BFG's wear like iron, are tough as nails, offer great traction in most conditions and really earned their rep.

Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs are on the more aggressive side of the AT spectrum, but are excellent on road. I love mine, although they are new. Off road they excel. On road they aren't too loud, handle well, and do well in rain. I won't be able to give an opinion on treadwear until I have a lot more miles on them.

Did I mention they do well off road?

I have BFG All Terrains.. the firestone Mud terrain tires look tough, but they absolutly suck on wet pavement.

ETA- In in true squatdog fashion.. they can take a "full power shot". This was from Chevy S-10 doing about 50mph

Toyo Open Country AT, the best AT I've ran on my Jeep. I've had BFG AT's, Mastercraft Courser AT's, and Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor (junk).


I had 2 Silent Armors blow out sidewalls in less than 6 months. Overall they lasted less than 30k miles.

Agreed! He just named the TOP 3 as far as A/T truck tires go.. Don't even consider anything other than what he mentioned.

Where'd you buy them?

BF Goodrich ATKO
Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo II

I have had both tires, and both were excellent. The Revo's lasted me over 50,000 mi.

My Nitto Terra Grapplers have lasted longer than my friends BFG's and I got them for about $200 cheaper than them as well.

The one thing that really surprises me about them is how well they do in the rain and streets full of puddles. I ran 85mph for about 150miles one night in the pouring rain. (windshield wipers on high) and the truck just seemed to be stuck to the road.

I highly recommend the Nitto's. Heck, I haven't even rotated them yet.

Pro Comp Xtreme AT's...

I like my BFG AT KO's though at 35x12.5x15 inches they float a bit in the rain at higher speeds. Seem to be hardly wearing at all, and have had great traction in the mountains and on sand.

+1 I've had these on my Jeep TJ for a year now. I love them. I had Goodyear's on right before the Duelers. They were crap!

They will beat any price you can provide them with and offer free shipping. That's how I got my Duratracs pictured above.

Just fine. Only have about 5K miles on them but they look excellent.

I've put about 20k on Nitto Trail(not Terra) Grapplers since last fall under a F250 diesel. I've rotated them once, very good, even treadwear. The lugs are just starting to show any wear at all. They do whine a bit on the highway, but not noticably over the diesel noise. They grip really well in mud and don't sink excessivly in sand. I'm estimating I'll get 50k out of these, and will probably buy them again.
