Default Question on which tires to pick

The tires that I am stuck between are the Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ, Dick Cepek Mud Country, Cooper Discoverer STT or Firestone Destination MT.Trying to stay under $350 per. Im going to get them in 315/75R16, looking for something with an aggresive look and still perform well on road and off. And im mounting them on Dick Cepek DC-2 16x10 wheels. If anyone has any suggestions/reviews or wants to recommend something else please do!!! Thanks!

How much driving do you plan to do in the mud is the first question that needs to be answered. If it is just every once in a while then a MT tire is probably not the best solution for you for a truck that spends 75% of its time on pavement. MT tires tend to provide a very rough ride on the street and are not all that good for traction on the street due simply to their tread design.

An AT tire like the Goodrich TA A/Ts, Goodyear Wranglers, Cooper Discoverer, et. al, provide good traction on and off road and the ride is much smoother and handling on the street is much better.

That said, if I were choosing a MT tire and price was a big part of that selection process, I think I would lean towards the Cooper and the Firestone's as I have had nothing but good experiences with both of those companies.
