Default On-Road, Larger Tires.

So I want to get a larger tire, maybe 33s or 35s (w/ a body lift), but I will not be off-roading, maybe I will off-road 2-5 times a year, if that! So i would like a suggestion on a mean looking bigger tire that has minimal wear on pavement and good in the rain on highways and side streets.

This may seem stupid, but i LOVE the look of a bigger tire and plan on getting 15 or 17 inch black machined rim w/ them.

Any suggestions would help, thank!!

I have Firestone Destination 33's and Goodyear wrangler silent armor 33's. Both are AT's, the goodyears kinda blow in the snow, they are good in the rain though and its a hell of a smooth ride too, but the Firestones are real good for rain and snow. It's up to you but I recommend both!

Codeman, I'm in the same boat as you. I currently have old Wranglers on my truck (previous owner, unknown mileage on them). They are getting worn down and I'm looking to replace with bigger ones.

Does anyone have any experience with the Duratracs? How many miles can I expect out of highway driving?

I'm with Clinton. My Destination ATs have been great.
