Tire recommendation

Hello All...

I am picking up my new Limited EcoDiesel tomorrow and plan on swapping the stock 18" rims and tires out for a 20" Rim / Tire.

Any recommendations on an all weather tire with a somewhat aggressive tread design that won't KILL my MPG but will perform great in the snow? - I drive close to 35K miles a year for work...

Any pics?

If you sre looking for an allseason you can leave on year round with decent snow abilities take a look st Nokian WR3 SUV. There are better dedicated snow tires but the Nokians are a good choice if you dont want to change out tires for winter and just want a year round tire.

Re: Tire recommendation

I had Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac on my other truck and when I replace the factory OE tires, I will be going with these on my GC Overland Ecodiesel. Little road noise but an aggressive looking tire and fairly decent traction in the winter. Way better than what's on there now...

Re: Tire recommendation

Michelin LTX MS2's are really good in the snow. They are not super aggressive, but a nice looking tire....and super quiet. They also last 70k miles.

They are going on my jeep next week...but in 275/55/20. I want a little more sidewall to soak up little bumps.

I loved those tires on my tundra, good for 70k.
I may look at them again when the goodyear fortera's need replacing but I am curious if the large size will cause any issues.

Re: Tire recommendation

Just replaced my terra grapplers with Hankook dynapro. Day and night difference in drivability. Much more quiet and comfortable.
