Tire advice- good look vs. comfort/noise
I searched other threads and didnt see anything too specific on this. I'm looking for advice when I add a lift and bigger tires. Going to try to fit 20 inch 35's on a Cognito 4-6 NTBD and I want a somewhat aggressive look but I dont want to sacrafcie too much comfort and quietness. Trying to find a good balance here.
Currenlty I'm in between...
Nitto Trail Grappler M/T's (
Nitto Terra Grapplers (not aggresive enough?)
Toyo Open Country M/T's
Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ
Anyone have any other recommendations and better yet, any good pics of these on your truck?

Personally I like BFG ATs. Have had them on multiple trucks with no issues. Nice and quiet and last a decent while.

Trail grapplers are so loud. It made me not want to drive my truck
Terra grapplers wear out to fast and get loud after 10k miles
I'd stay away from those.

Sorry, can't vote. TAKOs are all I buy. I hear a lot of guys like the Toyos though.

I have a buddy with Trail Grapplers on his 6.4 and I hate riding with him because they're so noisy. But I am used to my michelin a/t 2 tires though.

Hated the Terra Grapplers because they wore out way too fast. My last set were Toyo's they were good not too noisy lasted 38,000 I only rotated once because I am lazy. Went with the Nitto Trail's this time because I got a great deal, I absolutely love them. I have been in some nasty mud and pulled out other stuck trucks they seem to bite and clean out great.
