Got my new procomp 2.5

Hy guys I got my procomp 2.5 lift today from 4wheel parts in Memphis. Looks great and is only going to cost me around $250 and thats for the coil lift. Got to love that rebate.
I know I need to go up on my tires. I'm running 265/75/16 BFG ko. I want to go with 33/12.5/16. I think that would make her look even better. Don't really care what brand or style of tire just need something road friendly. She's my DD and it's around 80 miles round trip everyday mostly highway. Any suggestions??

If you drive more on the street then off road, a good all-terrain tire would be more beneficial then a mud tire. Goodyear Duratrac, General Grabber AT2 and Nitto Terra Grapplers are all popular choices.

I have BFG All Terrains and I am very happy with them. Great traction and they look good too.

i'd stay with an all-terrain BFG, i had a set of nitto terra grapplers, they were decent tires, but man it seemed like they wore quickly...

Found some 305/70/16 Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ for cheap. Only around 300 miles on them. Love the size to go with y new lift I just put on. Not sure about the tires. Anyone have or had these tires? I would normally go with an AT tire but getting these from a friend for a good price. Thoughts?

I believe those are close to a 35" tire. You gas mileage will drop like a rock, you will NEED a rear tire carrier [the factory tailgate carrier is too weak to hold that large of a tire], and you will either need new wheels with less backspacing or wheel spacers. I would stick with what you have.

looks like he has aftermkt wheels so he may be okay. stock tire carrier might be fine for awhile if you don't do any heavy/frequent offroading.

Thats a really big 33inch tire, you will be fine with those and a 2.5 inch lift. I had a 2 inch lift on mine and ran 295/70/17s, but then i got smart and cut my dumbo ears off and now Im running 35s!

Yeah I have procomp 98 series 16". Well I really don't do a lot of wheeling so the MTZ would not be my first choice. Like I said I have 265/75/16 BFG KO's now. Love the tires they just look small with the the 2.5 lift. Also I would be getting them for around $125 a tire with only 300 miles on them. Thinking I should just go get some bigger BFG's but I just a sucker for a deal.
