BF Goodrich Mud Terrain T/A is what i had on my old truck. 2001 dodge ram with the 5.9 V8 gashog. got about 9 miles a gallon Highway. it was great :D

there is a ton of threads on here about tires and pics also just do a search after you see how good 35" or 315's look on these trucks you may want to put a leveling kit on and go that big.

Here ya go Kloned:

You don't want to go too big with that low geared rear end. 265's will be good.

16 is the size of your wheel
75 is your aspect ratio (75% of the width is your height)
265 is the width of your tire.

3:55's are good for mileage but not for towing. Stick with a nice 265/75/16 and your truck will look beefy(ish) and still get decent mileage as your gearing will still be able to turn rubber that size.

Toyo MT's get good reviews as do the Dick Cepek Fun Country. Remember that a mud tire will look cool and be great in..well...mud. If you get any kind of snow and ice, they will suck big time. It depends on what kind of weather you get in your neck of the woods.

If you pull a heavy trailer or load up the bed of your truck, you'll want to stick with a "E" or 10 ply tire. This is basically how many plys are on the carcass of the tire. More plys = a stonger tire that will resist the squish factor. Otherwise, you can go with a "D" or 8 ply tire which will still do fairly heavy loads. More M/T's you will find will be 8 ply. Again, it depends what you want to do with your truck. I think the Toyo M/T's are 10 ply but I'm not sure about the DC's.

Hope this helped clear things up for you.:thumbsup

Very nice truck BTW. Congrats!!!:hyper:

I'm new here, but I just traded my 2002 4x4,cummins 5.9, auto for a 2004 3500 4x4 (single back wheels). My 2002 had a 2" front level kit and I had 305/70/16 bfg mt's. I think the load range was rated D, I drove it to Fla. this past summer and got 19mpg. This new truck has 285/70/17 toyo open country at's. I was wondering if i can get 285/75/17 without a front level kit. oh yea I had about 38000 miles on the bfg's with about 25% tread left.
