2001 S/C Crew Cab 4x4 Frontiers came stock with 265/55R17's on 17x7 wheels.

Here's a good tool to determine what effect a different size tire will have on your speedo.

I like my Cooper Discover ST's they're...I haven't really had a chance to test them out that much in mud or anything but I've been really happy with them so far...some people might disagree because I've heard some people knockin them..they have a nice looking aggressive tread too...haha

I've been looking at the BFG Rugged Terrain T/A tires. It's a fairly new design apparently (2011) but they look good. I've always had the Long Trails and prefer BFG because they wear so well. Has anyone had a chance to look at these tires yet?

They *look* like a good tire, but I don't know that they have been around long enough for anyone here to put them through the paces yet. As far as their internal construction, they seem to be the same as the Long Trails, and Rugged Trails. That being said I would not recommend them if there is any moderate off-roading in your future. You mention always running the Long Trails, and if they have done you good thus far then the Rugged Terrain's would probably suit your needs since they are based on the same construction, just with a more aggressive tread pattern (they are basically just a meaner looking Long Trail).

Yeah, I don't get to do any off-roading really... I wish I did, but unfortunately this is my primary driver, so I can't afford to break it for fun. However, I do like to get better grip when I have to go down back country roads, especially in the rain.

Something like the Fortera Triple Tred may be something to consider if you have only limited off roading in your plans.

We put the Assurance Triple Tred on my wife's minivan, I can't comment on snow yet (and it's almost December!!!) but they handle well otherwise. The Fortera is a good bit more aggressive, but has plenty of siping.

I like my Coopers, but if you don't go off road much I don't think I'd bother with an AT tire.

2008 SE 4WD, Crew Cab, Long Bed; Leer 180 Cap, 2" Receiver hitch, Trailer wiring in bumper. Cooper 245/75/16 M&S (Winter). Cooper 265/75R16 ATP (Summer). Full set of Hefty skids, TJM Coilover w/HD spring, SPC upper control arms and 2" rear add a leaf plus 1" block. TJM extended travel rear shocks. Pyle backup camera wired to a Pioneer radio.

Im a big fan of the BFG All Terrain tires. My last set on my Bronco lasted 11 yrs and around 50,000 mi.(not a daily driver). I replaced them earlier this year with the same because I noticed a little dry rot. There was still plenty of tread left.

I've been looking for some 265/75r15's but there really aren't many AT tires in that size. I've seen a few (Cooper Discoverer, Goodyear Wrangler), but if anyone has a suggestion for that particular size, I suse would appreciate it!
