Looking for recommendations between the following tires. I am not happy with the duratracs as they are getting louder by the day (17k mileage) and looking to replace them. Due to this I am looking for a good AT tire that will have better road manners as most of my driving is city/highway. I do go up to the mountains so looking to maintain an AT tire. I was wondering if anyone can give me some insight on the following tires and which one is the quietest of the bunch. I am looking at the following four tires, BFG KO2, Nitto G2, Cooper AT3, Falken AT3W. Anyone have experience with any of these?

I have run Nitto G2 and Cooper AT3s on previous trucks. I doubt you will be disappointed in either. The BFGs and Falkens also get good reviews

I just put some BFG K02 35x12x18 on my TB this weekend and the difference in road noise is night and day, The BFGs are so quiet. The other tire I considered was the Falken Wildpeak 295/70/18 but local availability and not willing to wait forced be to go BFG. Super happy with them. :)

Did you lift/trim? And If so what lift?

I haven’t trimmed yet but might do a little trimming of the inner mud flap If I don’t end up lifiting it.

Nice! Holla with what you end up doing. I'm contemplating the same set up!

I am on the fence of goin SST or a true 6” lift but still unsure. I ran into a guy who was running the same BGF with the SST kit and no spacers which convinced me to get the BFG last week. I ordered the SST kit but haven’t picked it up as i debate on what to do.

The week before that i saw a TB with a 6” lift and the want was bad.

At the moment i think i wont take any action as far as trimming as i think it may only be an issue in a hard/tight parking situation. I will likely wait until i install a kit before i cut anything.
