new truck- tires/type

Postby buelldude [OP] » Dec 01 2019, 11:21pm

So there are so many threads on types of tires, will they fit and so on. I have a stock 2020 Silverado that came with 265/65/18 and they are known to be good for the south- dry roads. I get a lot of wet sometimes slush/snow roads in the winter. I'm not doing a lift and staying with the same size. I would like to give it an off-road look, what would you suggests?
I have more than a few friends at work that say BFG ko2 but they seem to be following what everyone else is using.

Please give me you inputs, I know everyone has there own ideas and that is why I'm asking.

I also just read that the brake calipers were changed and 2019-up has different size rims????

There's a bunch of threads out there to do some reading on.

I highly recommend the toyo open country at2. I'm on my 3rd set and love them.

But the bfg is a rock solid option for sure.

Your friends are following everyone because the K02 is an outstanding tire with millions of miles of real world use and plenty of happy customer.
It is the stock tire on the Raptor - which is kind of the benchmark in half ton off roaders. That should speak for something.

K-Bro-2s are a solid option. Tons of people run them.

I have had 2 sets of Nitto Terra Grapplers, and they have served me well. That is also what came on this truck when I bought it. I am due for new rear tires soon. I will be switching all 4 out for a set of the Cooper Discoverers. I had a set on my previous truck that performed really well in all conditions.

ok, KO2 is a good tire. How many miles are you getting on a set of tires?

I have heard good things about hankook and Nexen tires also. BFGs are the premiums though. I had Coopers on my last truck they were good,

did the size difference do anything to your miles put on the truck?

You should get 50-60k with proper alignment, balance and inflation, and regular rotation. I have gotten as much as 70k out of LT tires though.
