Default Best tire?

Hey guys. I'm looking at getting new tires very soon, and was wondering what brand should I get. I probably won't be doing a whole bunch of off roading, just to work and such. Looking at all terrain tires. I will be putting a 3 inch body lift on soon. I don't wanna go higher then 32's. Suggestions would be great.

If you are looking for an AT with low road noise and good reviews from Tire Rack and other places, the Firestone Destination AT is the way to go. Good price on them too.

Tire Rack has quite a few reviews for this tire from owners of various models of Rangers. I don't remember there being any bad reviews.

You will get 100 responses and 100 differnt opinions on what the best tire is. My suggestion is to find a tire you like that's in your price range and than find and read up on user reviews and ratings of that tire.

I do like 01_ranger_4x4 says, I just buy tires to my budget. Sometimes they are loud, but they still come with a warranty.
