Default What tire to buy......

I was wondering if u guys could tell me what kind of tire I should buy for my 04 ranger. Its 2 wheel drive and the rents wont let me go mud. So somethin with a nice tread that wont kill gas mileage. Lookin around a 225/70R15 or 225/75R15

x2 I've only heard good things about BFG A/Ts. They will give your truck a more aggressive look and they aren't mud terrain tires so that should appease your parents.

both 4x4 and 2wd have their advantages and disadvantages when offroading...

i'd definitely take a look at both BFG A/t and General Grabber A/T2's. choose which ever one fits your budget, can't go wrong with either of those two.

Racing slicks FTW!


2wd trucks can wheel - this has been proven.
