What tires are you running!

So im looking at getting a set of M/T tiresize and am wondering what everyone else uses? I'm looking at some "off" brand cheaper Luke renegade and Atturo. Is anyone running 285/65r18? If so what did you have to do lift wise.

Feel free to share good/ bad experiences.

265/75/16 Toyo M/T.
Never heard of the tires you mentioned.
For me, cutting cost on tires does not sound like a good idea.

A large majority of members here on CF have stock nissan 16" rims and are running 285/75-16 with 2-3 inch lift with minor trimming , removing or trimming mud flaps, melt mod , and removing the lower valance on the stock front bumper.
Some people with this set-up have not had to do any trimming...it depends on your alignment.
Pinch Weld Mod: How to

You must have stock nissan 18" rims ?

285/75-16 is almost the exact same size (around & width) as a 285/65-18
See this tire size calculator:
https://www.tacomaworld.com/tirecalc...5r16-285-65r18

If you have aftermarket 18" rims that make your rims and tires stick out past your fenders then you will have to do some trimming.

Tire brands ?
If you are looking for non major manufacture brand tires , I would try to find some online reviews for feed back.... some of the tire seller web sites have customer reviews for the tires they sell.
Discount tire
Tire rack
Heck even amazon:

I am running LT285/75-16 BFG KO2's , I just got them , but they seem great so far.
I was considering a lower end / lower priced tire but a lot of the reviews stated problems balancing , odd wear patterns , and cupping.

Yeah I'm on aftermarket 18's with a 0 offset so they stick out. Right now I have 265/70r18 nitto Terra grapplers and I had to trim some metal and plastic.

I use to work for discount, and honestly I rarely found a M/T that ever balanced easily especially when going bigger. I would have never considered off brand and have been a Nitto fan for awhile but just can't bring myself to pay the price for a set of trail grapplers, but after some research and reading reviews from some jeep forums I may switch sides.

from my size now (265/70r1 to 285/65r18 is is not that much bigger. So I'm going to go with them.

So I am moving to a state that has vehicle inspections done yearly. Where tires shall not extend past fender lines. I am going with an 18" wheel and looking at getting a 265/65/18 tire, maybe a 275 / 65 / 18. I will be running a 2" PRG Front and 1.5" Rear lift.

I've always believed there are two areas where you do not want to "go cheap": brakes and tires. I've never heard of Luke Tires and can't even find them on the internet! Atturo Tires specialize in SUV and light truck tires and are manufactured in Thailand and Taiwan, but, I've never known anyone that had them nor heard any reviews on them. A lot of the companies in China, Taiwan, Korea, etc., buy old molds from major tire companies once they've discontinued that design. On that point, it's not the worst thing in the world; it saves them a lot of research and development costs, albeit, it may not be the "latest and greatest" tread patterns. The more pressing issue is that these companies use inferior materials and construction, so, while they may be using the molds of a former major tire company, the tires are likely not as good nor last as long as what those former companies "used to" produce. You end up getting a pretty good looking tire at a discounted price, but you don't save a lot of money if those tires wear out in 20,000 miles.
In my experience, Michelin consistently makes some of the best tires. They cost a lot more, but, you get what you pay for. They last long, have great traction in different conditions and ride well. For truck tires, if you don't want to go all-out, household name brand, there are a lot of less costly brands that make very good tires. Nitto is owned by Toyo Tires. Nitto makes the Terra Grappler, which has a different tread pattern but the same construction as Toyo Open Country tire. The Nitto Crosstek is also good, but more of a hybrid tired running the line between a highway and an off-road tire. Hankook Dynapro's are also very good and won't break the bank as are Kumho Road Venture MT's.

After my originals wear out I buy Hankook Dyna Pro tires. They were great on my last Frontiers and my Pathfinder. I'm looking at BF Goodrich K0's for my Jeep Wrangler.

I have run these retreads before. Not this size or tread pattern but this company. Well sort of, they sold and move their facilty as well as made a bunch of improvements.

Good inexpensive tires. I have no issues with running retreads.
There are typically coupons that will lower the cost even more.
