You might be able to get the nitto trail grappler, the only size i can think of right now for a 16 is the 285/65/16. there are a stellar tire which dont have much road noise at all. might be able to get them in an actuall 33 as well now that i think of it. as for the toyo dont bother cause the trail grappler is the same thing just a better(made by the same people). I find mickey thompsons wear really fast and seperate way more then other tires, same as dick cepeks. plus with how bad they wear i also find they are heard to keep balanced. Now the differance between my info and everyone elses, is that its all from oil patch trucks that see muddy/gravel covered/hard/ pot holes you cant go over faster then 10km/h, and really crappy highways for 12 hours a day and get the crap bagged out of them. good old alberta oil fields lol I work for a tire shop and most guys with mud tires run either the km2 or the trail grappler. for A/T they run mostly the BFG A/T ko. occasionally we have some duratracs come in, but we dont deal with goodyear tires period. We actually have some guys run the mud grappler but they sound like a helicopter on the highway lol so there is my two cents and i hope it helps you haha
Oh trust me. I know the helicopter noise. Mine do them like crazy! Haha. Good ole wrangler mt/r's. Too bad they don't make my version anymore. I really liked them. But that's why I'm looking for new kind. I've herd great things about the km2 and everyone seems to love them. And there only $200 a piece for 33" which is great

Ok! Thanks for the info. Yeah some good snow traction is definately needed if we ever have a winter like last again

In that case I would second the MTZ. Best all around tire I have ever ran. And since you are going with 16" you wont run into the issues with tread life. The 16" D range tire will run 50K with out much problem. I generally sell mine at about 45K with plenty of tread left. Just to get some good money out of them for their replacements.
Mine are 285/75 16's on a 4.5" backspaced rim

G54 I loved my Mickey Thompson MTZs. They did great in everything. They probably wear kind of fast on the street, and a little more expensive than some...but aired down to about 15psi they went through thick, sticky mud great and rocks and sand were no problem either. Also gripped great on rainy roads and snow thanks to generous siping.

I'd post pics but photobucket isn't responding at the moment.

Eh..I got this one on my hard drive....

Tire choices

What tires should I get?! I'm looking for a good quality 33" tire for my 16" rims. But don't know what to go for. What do you have? Post pics if possible too!
