Any thoughts on my situation below:

- Running 305/60/18 (Cooper STT's) on a 2.5" spacer lift
- Now giving the beast over to my wife as I've gotten a new pickup that will take over the heavy offroading/playtime kind of stuff
- She's 99% a city driver, although this is Denver, so snow, etc are not uncommon so I'd like to stick with an A/T
- We'll also still use it for mild off-road (gravel/rocks/dirt) for family camping, etc

Looking at 2 options:

- Leave the lift on and get a less-agressive tire in the same size range (305/60/18, 285/65/18 appear to be the only real choices here. Possibly Nittos in the 295/70/18)

- Take the lift off and go slightly larger than stock (maybe 285/65/18). This opens a lot more possibilities, but obviously taking the lift off is more $$.

I thought it would be easier, but there seems to be a lack of options in a non-mud tire around the 32.5-33 inch tires.

Best ride/off road tires for P275/60r20

I have an 09' LE. I would like to eventually put a Daystar 2.5" leveling on it, front and rear. What is the best tires I can put on it that will agree with the life. I have stock Michelin tires on it now. Do I need a smaller rim size for bigger tire or would BFG Rugged Terrains T/A 114s work well? Discount tire said $906/4 OTD. Thanks

I'm going to have to jump on the bandwagon and recommend the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza. I had them on my Yukon XL and they were great. They were quiet, handled well, and got me through sand and snow. I had almost 50,000 miles on them when I traded in my Yukon on the Armada; they still had a ton of tread left. I know have them on my Armada.

I didn't see anyone review the Silent Armour yet. I had those on my Expedition. I was not too impressed. They were quiet and handled well in the rain. Snow performance was pretty horrendous. At around 30,000 miles they wouldn't pass inspection.

Just to confirm, we can run 325/60/18 on a stock height/stock rim armada and have no rubbing issues? Even at maximum turn?

Is anyone running the Toyo Proxes STii on their Mada? What about the Cooper Discovery HT Plus?
