    Hi All. I bought a great used Taco TRD Off Road. The tires need replacing soon. Currently, I have GY Duratracs. My local "go to" shop has Hanook Dynapros that they are offering. My husband has BF Goodrich baja t/a KO 2 on his f250 and thinks I should go for those. We will be going off-road, mostly desert landscape, loose rock, sharp rock
    etc. Opinions....????

    You look at the BFG KM3’s ?
    I like the GY DuraTrac’s.
    KO2’s are a good all terrain tire.

    Cooper s/t maxx AT will be my next purchase. Ive seen them in action. I am running km2s, they are good tires, but there are things that i dnt like about them, such tire chopping, and tearing. Km3s look great and were on my watchlist but just too darn pricy for 285s

    yea the to make most of the off-road experience 16 or 17 is the way to go. as for the size more info on the lift would be helpful...you want something functional and reliable. Check out SCS and methods

    A thing I heard a long time ago kinda made sense, wheel should be half of the tire diameter for good offroad use. That being said, I went with a 17" wheel with a 32" tire because I didn't want a E rated tire. Still does great offroad tho...

    Why ko2 over the open country?

    I think the ko2 looks better... The toyos perform very good, no doubt. Only thing for me is every toyo and nitto I've had seem to start aging about 1-2 years in. I only drive about 7k miles a year and was replacing them at about 70% tread because they showed a lot of cracks and didn't want to risk a blowout.
