Re: Help me pick an all-terrain tire

I have the KO2s and they were very pricey but they have great off road traction, while not sacrificing the traction on the street. My family uses BFgoodrich tires for our trucks and jeeps because we haven't had any real issues with the tires.

Re: Help me pick an all-terrain tire

My $.02... KO2's. Loved the original and getting ready to put the KO2's on very soon. Reviews are positive and appear to verify the tire is an improvement on the original.

My brief experience with the BFG Rugged Terrain was very poor. It was the stock tire on my Tundra back in 2002. I would not recommend them... or any Toyota truck for that matter.

I don't have any experience with the other tires.

Re: Help me pick an all-terrain tire

Thanks again for the info - been checking out tires whenever I see a cool rig in a parking lot. Just waiting for someone to call mall security on me...

Noticed that the Toyo Open Country A/T II tires are now OEM on the new Ram Rebel - and that the interior of that truck echos the tread pattern:

Re: Help me pick an all-terrain tire

Whatever you choose just be sure to ask people that have actual experience with the tires you're looking at their opinions. So many people buy something because it looks cool and are sadly disappointed. I talked to tons of people about what they liked and hated about their tires and eventually went with Duratracs for my needs. No disappointments at all. Was at the off-road park all day yesterday and they are night and day difference over stock tires.

I don't find them loud at all....however....coming from a very loud SRT I think I would probably say anything was quiet.

Re: Help me pick an all-terrain tire

I'm thinking about the Duratrac and the Coopers.

Re: Help me pick an all-terrain tire

Boom - tires ordered and awaiting install. Went with the Toyo Open Country A/T IIs - thanks Dom for the suggestion! Anyone want to buy some Latitudes? I think $200 for all four with about 2K miles on them. Pick up in Los Angeles if you are interested...

I'll buy them. I'm in the process of making a suspension kit for these wk2's but it's a process. But I need tires asap. I don't want to go buy my at2s in 33" just quite yet as they won't fit because of no suspension/ lift.

My tires ( came with jeep 37k miles) look like slicks haha

My Duratracs seem very quiet, of course I have some wind noise from my roof rack so maybe I just can't hear the tires over that...
