|07 F250 4x4 King Ranch Diesel. |
Time to replace factory tires and wanted some feedback. The King Ranch has 20" rims from factory and I do not want to lift. I would like to go bigger but I think the largest I can go (without mods) is 305/55/20. I have been told that the following are good options:
Nitto Terra Grapler
Cooper Zeon LTZ
I am replacing the stock tires (Wrangler ATS - 275/65R20). Not in need of aggressive tread.
Any feedback on the above or suggestions for others?
|I have the Nitto's on my truck and love them. The ride is nice and smooth and they look great.|
|BFG KO All Terrain...|
|Another vote for the Nitto's|
|Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ. Check them out great tire. They look better then anything else in an AT and also have the best traction I've experienced.|
|Nitto's are the only way to go on that truck, you'll love them. Those are the only tires that I have seen stand up to regular abuse without failing (that's with proper maintenance). |
The 305's should fit fine with no mods. 315's would probably require a small lift.
|A big thanks for all the input. Just curious if most of you stayed with stock size or if you went up in size (without a mod). I figure that if I am going to spend $700-$1200 bucks then I would like her to look a little different. Also, my tire guy told me that it should not have a noticable impact on MPG (diesel can turn them easy).|
|Nitto TGs here on my Duramax and love them so far! I went up to 295/70/17s and it hasn't hurt the MPGs at all really. Only mods I have is 4" cat-back exhaust and a modded stock air box.|
|Check and make sure that whatever you buy is load rated for a 3/4 ton. I'm not sure that the Nitto's are. I had them on my last truck. They were great tires. Good in snow/rain and decent looking.|
|nittos are 10 ply load range E I believe. I have some mud grapplers and love em. Just remember to keep them rotated|
|The load range you need really depends on how much and how heavy of towing you do. The Nitto Terra Grapplers are all D or E rated which is fine for a 3/4 ton truck towing a wakeboard boat.|
|I have the Nitto TGs, love em.|
|BFG All Terrains - 285/65/20. Load Range E|
I was wondering the same thing
I have the 2006 King Ranch
by the way......what hitch do you use
I was using the 4" drop that I needed for my Dodge, but is wasn't allowing the trailer to be level
I just switched to a straight (no drop) hitch, and am pretty convinced that it is as level as it's gunna get
do any of you guys with a stock F250 4x4 setup use a straight or a 1" drop
sorry to hijack
|CIE...the Nitto's I priced are E (the stock OEM's are R). |
BB12...I tow a MC X1 (2007) on a regular basis. On occassions, I will tow a JD Tractor with front end loader and rear grader box but that is once a year for maybe 100 miles.
Cliff...straight hitch with no drop and everything I have is stock. Boat sits pretty close to level.
Thanks again for all the replies!
|Bob, the E rated Nitto's will be fine. Just remember to rotate them regularly.|
|Cooper is a high quality tire, they also manufacture the Mickey Thompsons and another brand that is escaping me right now. |
I have the BFG's AT TA's and am very happy with them. They took a few hundred to smooth out and get nice and grippy, but they are high quality and do nicely in all applications.
|Cool... I'll be looking for new tires in the next few months for my '06 with the 20's. The info is appreciated.|
|Pro Comp tires, that's it!! Cooper makes them too, and I think they are all USA made. |
I might have gone cooper or Pro Comp but I am happy with my bfg's.
