Default Best AT/MT tires for a F250

It is about time for some new all terrain tires or maybe MT if not to loud. I had Toyo Open Country AT's and they were not very good when it rained or pulling the boat up the ramp. What is everyone running on here. Thanks for your help in advance. Go!!

Nitto Ridge Grapplers
37x12.5x20 on stock wheels and they were quiet and smooth on the highway but handled off roading and mountain roads in Colorado like a champ! I never got them stuck or even had them get loose/spin. Ran them on a 19 King Ranch that was tuned/deleted/lifed 4" on a procomp kit.
I have ran Toyos, Mickey Thompson, and Nittos on previous pickups and these are by far the best, even better than the Mickeys I had.

My dad bought the pickup from me when I bought a class C RV and he recently replaced them with a brand new set. I believe he said the take offs had 9/32nds and he is in Austin. If you're interested in a used set, he has them in the garage for sale.
shoot me a pm if interested. If you aren't interested in used, no problem. But definitely get the ridge grapplers

BF Goodrich KO2’s. Get more miles out of them than Ridge grapplers and the rocks won’t cut them up as bad.

Maxxis Razr mt, been very happy with them.. more for mud, durability. We have alot of black mud/clay in the river valleys, and rock in the higher elevations.
Hands down the best tire ive ever owned.
I could not find a bad review.

Just put a set of Cooper evolution M/T on my f150 285/70/17 for right at $800.

My recommendation is to buy online from tirebuyer and know a first responder/teacher to get you the coupon code they accept for I want to say 10 or 15% off and free shipping. Had mine on door step the next day.

They are also made in USA

Ridge grapplers suck offroad. Got stuck on wet grass one time. Big fan of the cooper stt mudd tires. Now we have firestone mt on the 2500 and they are ok. Only reason we went firestone is because they get replaced under warranty anytime one is low on tread

We had bad luck with those. Wife had them on her Titan, wore unevenly, maybe lasted 30k miles, loud and real expensive.

I like my 295/65/20 Toyo MTs on my Ram 2500. Hard to complain about them.

If I had to go with an AT it would probably be the Falken Wildpeak. They are a little more aggressive than most ATs to me, not too loud and good off road.

This was my complaint with ridge grapplers, after about 20k miles gravel roads ate them up, rubber came out in chunks.

I’m running Yokohama geolander MTs on my f250. Wearing even and awesome tread life for me. Super tough tire. I have no complaints. Real quiet compared to other mud terrains I’ve run in the past as well. Had a set on my old 4runner and loved them.

Ridge grappler is a good tire. They're terrible in the mud though. If you're out west in the sand/rocks, they're great.

For mud, I would run a Toyo M/T. I've ran about every off-road truck tire on the market. With that being said, I want to try the new Geolander G003's that just came out.

I am about to replace a set of ridge grapplers with another set. I have 55k + in this set. 3/4 diesel trucks suck off road so I dont go much but I'm sure no matter the tire I'd get stuck. These were better than I expected wear wise. No real complaints.

I got mad at BFG after a blow out and put Nitto all terrains on my 2500. Tires were fine on pavement but fell apart on dirt roads. I was able to get a couple replaced under warranty at discount but when #3 and 4 needed to be replaced I went back to BFG. I will probably do Cooper next.

TOYO Open Country M/T. The M/T is the best tire I have ever had. Goes through brush, over cactus, over cedar stumps, through hull country holey rock, and right over caliche. In my opinion, nothing else compares.
