I am looking to get new tires for my 06 xterra off road. i do not have any lift on it but i want to run 285/75/16 tires with the melt mod until i lift it 2 inches. This car is my daily driver and i take it off road every once in a while. I am look at either Falken Rocky mountain ATS tire http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/tir...ALINT&pc=18281
I have used the ATP tires in mud/water...They worked great. I did get stuck a few times in the sense that I had to rock back and forth and inch my way forward some to get out of the mud hole, but always manged to make it through, even when in mud/water up to the bottom of the door seams.
A big wheeling weekend I got to test them out...there was only 1 slick mud hill I couldn't get up on my 32s...handled just about everything else I threw at it with suprising results. Many of my difficulties I would also attribute to me being new to wheeling...but I was able to ride next to a SAS xterra on 37s without being too much of a limiting factor.
thanks i want to get them in 33 and i think the coopers would be better. I found a set of dakata definity mud terrains for 200 a peice with buy 3 get one free at pepboys so i might go with them but if not i think im going to go with the coopers
my buddies taco does great in the mud with those falkens... They clean out extremely well for an all-terrain, and handle themselves well in the deep stuff too.
since your wantin 33s, you'll be running a 285/75/16s... If your gonna go coopers, have u loooked at the st discoverer maxx? I mean both tires are within a dollar of each other. I swapped from stts to these st maxxs and there great man. I was sold after looking at reviews and couldn't find anything negative about them.
thanks i haven't looked at those tires yet. i love the look on the st maxx's you have so I'm gonna look into them but the only thing is if the one's from pep boys are good, I'm still reading reviews, they sell them buy 3 get one free so it saves some money. but I'm definitely gonna look at the st maxx. i also like the regular discoverer S/T, do you know how they are?
