Default Tire suggestion

I have a 2006 F-150 with 35/12.50/20. What kind of Mud tire should I go with. I was thinking Toyo M/T

without a lift 245/75 r16, 235/85r16 and 265/75r16 will fit, but with some mud packed on the fenders your mudflaps will be at risk if you want them. I run lt 245/75 r16 hankook dynapro RT04 mt's on mine because even with the fenders full of mud they can still turn side to side without any damage and threy're nowhere near as oddball a size as the 255( only 1/2 " taller but skinnier), my buddy had lt265/75 r16 bfg mt's on his but one afternoon while playin they decided to claim his lower bumper plastic while turning a corner in a muddy trail so he went to lt235/85r16 hankooks too( same height as the 265 but skinnier for turning) and so far only lost a mudflap.I've seen some with 285's on but it's pretty tight, no good for 4byin. but I also know a chick with a 02 supercrew with a 3" body lift, she runs 285's and has no problems.Also make sure to buy "LT" tires instead of "P" tires, they do cost a little more for the same size tire but you get deeper treads for more traction and life and you also get more plies in the tire so they are stronger, resist punctures better. hope this helped

Check out Dunlop Rover MT Maxx Traction. For a mud tire they have pretty decent siping for wet weather tration and they are snowflake rated for severe winter weather, if winters are an issue for you.

Thumbs up Tire suggestion

Drivers of classic cars must be especially careful. Classic cars often lack what are now regarded as basic safety features, such as seat belts, crumple zones or rollover protection. Vehicle handling characteristics particularly steering and suspension and brake performance are likely to be poorer than current standards, hence requiring greater road-awareness on the part of the driver. In certain parts of the US, using a classic car as a daily vehicle is strongly discouraged and in some places even prohibited.

Must've missed this thread... I honestly really like those new Nitto tires. They have a pretty sick looking tread
