Looking for a good set for my Dodge 2500 4x4, I have Michelin LT and they are very good tires but rock magnets and have a tendency to throw small stones, looking for input on other tires that are a little more aggressive and can handle mud and snow without going to mud bogger type tires.

Thanks

Toyo M55 is THE tire of choice out here in the wild west for the truck that we both have.

I believe that bridgestone makes a dueler A/T revo in that size in a 10 ply. Pretty nice tire. Rather expensive though. I would stick with the michelin LTX M/S if it were my ride though.

Look into Cooper tires. They're made in the US and have a pretty strong following with 4x4ers. The Discoverer S/T-C comes in 10ply and the 265/75r16 size.

It's probably the most aggressive A/T tire you'll come across.

Great thread..I need new ones this size for a 4runner. THe more aggressive the louder and less milage you get on pavement. Mine has bridgestones on it now.I hear TOYO A/T are great but @800? I'll keep looking. I had them on the last runner but they were 15"s.

BFG AT KO's
Cooper Discoverer ATR
Bridgestone Dualer AT Revo's

If you don't want an AT...
Michelin LTX MS (I have these on my F350) Great truck tire...

the BFG's are extremely popular right now BUT I prefer the Revo's & I also like the

Yokohama Geolandar A/T+ II's , good tire for the money

FWIW... I'd skip right over the 265's and throw a set of the 285's on it. Those Dodges have HUGE wheelwells that seem to just swallow up the 265's.

+1 , the 285's are almost a 33" tire & will fit no problem

if you have a newer Dodge you can actually fit some 315/70/17" tires on there & those are 34.5" tires,
you would probably need to have the dealer recalibrate your speedo though

I agree. My next purchase will be for 255/85/r16 to replace my stock 265/75/r16 Michelin tires.

I am going to need new tires for my 2005 RAM some day too. Currently I have 265 goodyear wranglers.
