Tire help

I'll be needing tires in the next few months(3-6 I'd say) an I picked up a pair of 06-08 chrome clad 20s that I'm planning to clean up an get tires for. I plan to lift truck back up to 3/4- 3/6 to be able to have a decent size wall tire still, but thinking about going with something wide like a 305/50 for some good meats. I have nitto 420s now an would like to hear reviews people have had with other similar tires. I'd like to try something else but am open to running the 420s again.

Are you looking for an aggressive off-road tire or a high speed pavement queen tire?

Thumbs up

I ran Pirelli's for years until my size was no longer available...have since switched to HANKOOK Ventus ST and so far I'm very pleased with them in all driving conditions...of course no winter slush driving .

Bridgestone Revo IIs here. I don't know if they come in a 20", though. They still grip and ride well after 30 kilomiles.

There is not a great many options for tires in those sizes for trucks. The Nitto is a good tire, I have never had any issues with them and I have sold a pile of them. Nitto/Toyo are just well built tires that you shouldn't have any issues with, especially with balancing, which can be a real b***h with big wheels, low profile tires, and a tire man chasing weights around the rim...

Thought I had posted to this question, guess not. I measured my 03 carefully and came up with the max rim width to be 10 inches with 7 inches bs if you want it to tuck inside the fender.

Thanks man I have Toyos now they have lasted a very long time. I'll look into Nitto for low pros

I pulled the trigger on another pair of Nitto 420s in 285/50/20, found them for a price I felt I needed to jump on. Mounting them to 06-08 chrome clads
