Arrow Truck Tires: What do you swear by? - October 31, 2012, 11:14 PM

I posted a thread last year about Trying to get locking differenctials on my truck and that ended with nothing available.

Anyway I figured i would try and see what you guys feel are good tires for my truck or what you like.

I do not want or have the space to keep multiple set of rims. So I want something that is real good in the rain and snow but i use it year round on the highway...so All Terrain will do...

What would you recomend? on/off road All terrain? or highway All terrain ?

I was thinking of just getting the OEM tires, but in the other thread I heard some say:
265/65/17 2005 Nissan Frontier 4x4 LE Crew Cab 4 door....

Tire Rack.

Michelin LTX A/T2 tires

THESE are close to the LTX.......

BFG A/T (not sure what model).

OEM: General Graber

I have a Tahoe LTZ 275 55 20 tire size

I had the Bridgestone HL Alenza Dueler H/L Alenza Tire | Bridgestone Tires
Great tire. Very smooth and quiet all season. I would recommend then.

Around 50k miles I changed them out to some Nitto Crossteks or something. Got a great price and they're a pretty solid tire. Not as smooth or quiet, however I have been happy with them and would buy them again.

If you don't mind spending the money the Alenzas are awesome tires. I will go back to these assuming the Tahoe is still up and running when it's time for new tires. Which I assume it will be.

Goodyear Wrangler AT did me well. Good mileage and grip. IMO stay away from the BFG. They don't self clean very well. The logs get packed with snow.

I've run several different manufacturers on my F150 FX4 and the Pirelli's are far superior to all of them. Stay away from BFG. They are prone to cupping (even without suspension issues), don't last long, and are the worst I've had for grip and ride.

Yokohama tires generally earn very high ratings from third-party evaluators, and I had them on two different Subaru vehicles. I suppose the only reason one may not want them is if they want it to look like they do some very serious offroad driving. Yokohama doesn't offer those giant-lug tires that you see on the lifted powder puffs popping up around the DC Metro area as of late.

I only run Yokohama tires and will be putting them on this truck I just got in July once the crappy tires on there now are shot, which will be by next summer probably.

Depends on what you are using them for...

Commuting? Around town? Towing? Offroading? Burnouts?

I swear....it is soooo easy for me to buy tires for my G35 coupe...Im also buying rears for that this week.
But the truck?
I have no clue...

As far as what I am using it for.

March to October Towing about 2,000 lbs of trailer and bikes to the track
on average I drive it to work everyday because the DC streets are fuckup.
Of course winter vehicle...

So pretty much a daily driver...most out of town beach trips are in the truck.

2005 Nissan Frontier 4x4 Pick up. 62,000 miles and the OEM General Grabers on it now. Still have about 35% or more life, but they are toast....

I kind of want it all though...
No space for separate wheel storage so.

I want a tire that can handle highway and city streets....
but need Rain traction bad....she do ..ok... in the snow, but the rain/wet weather traction is the shits.

I still need to be able to tow and do not want a blow out of fast balding.

That said I would go with a more street oriented tire... Given that winter and offroad really seem to be a small part of what youre going to be doing.

^^

Theres what you think you need, and then there's what you really need. Get a highway tire with good wet traction versus a dedicated A/T. Towing and daily driving on aggressive tires will wear them out much quicker and the one or two times a year that you would feel like you're actually using them isn't worth it.

Ahem. This guy knows what he's talking about.

Just buy the Alenza's and thank me later. They're all season, great street ride, great in adverse weather conditions, no problem towing (done plenty with them) etc. sizes should fit no problem.
