What are the best (aggressive) tires for high mileage people.


Recommended Posts

I put a lot of highway miles on my vehicle. The last tires I bought were the Goodyear Wrangler duratracs. I LOVED them, but was just curious if anyone had better reviews than that tire? I like the aggressive look!

I'm in for the responses. I do a lot of highway and want aggressive tires. I know most say do ATs if you are going to do a lot of miles but sometimes ATs just don't have the look you want.

I know the Duratracs, Cooper ST MAXX, and Toyo RT (haven't seen any real world "I've had these tires and they lasted me XX,XXX miles before needing to be replaced" for the R/Ts

I'm interested as well. After my reading/research the best I have in mind so far is the toyo AT II. As long as you get the extreme size I think the aggressive look is close enough for me. In the past I ran MT ATZ, but they have changed and the new one is not as good looking.

Toyo Open Country ATII eXtreme. Rated a 65k mile tire, its aggressive enough for me while still affording a comfortable ride.

Thats a good looking tire from what I can see. Got any side show pictures you could post? What size are you running?

By FAR, the Toyo AT2 are the most aggressive, quality, and true to size AT tire I've ever owned. I've had BFG at tires and they were great tires, just small to size. I've also run duratracs, terra grapplers, and grabber all terrain. The Toyo AT2 are my favorites and as close to a mud tire as I'll ever get.

Toyos are 295/55/R20. Here is the best I can do now in terms of side photos taken last fall. I'm running my winter tires now and won't switch back until early May.

And, in case your thinking about a matching spare, the Toyo will fit the stock spare tire rack. Looks low in the photo but its just the angle which was close to the floor, still plenty of clearance.

Thats a good looking truck. After thinking about this for the last week straight I decided to go back with the Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac 275 60 20. I had these tires on my 2011 Crew Cab Z71 and LOVED them. I really wanted to see what else was out there but the duratrac is so aggressive looking and it was a great tire for me. I'll post picture in a few days when they are installed.

Did you notice a difference in mpg or road noise when you went to the AT2's? I had a set of the BFG's on my Avalanche and hated how I could feel the sidewall flexing on turns, I was also curious if you could feel that with them as well?

The BFG I had were 8 ply and these Toyo AT2 are 10 ply. These have no side flex with my setup. I will never run BFG because of them running small to size. Toyo/Nitto seem to run true or slightly larger to size. As for mileage, I'm not sure. They are withing 3 pounds of each other, so should be minimal.
