Question Agressive looking AT tires that aren't super loud?

It's time for a new set of tires. I would like something that's got an aggressive look to it, but isn't loud on the highway and won't kill my fuel MPG. I've had good luck with the 10-ply Nitto Terra Grapplers in the past....is there anything else I should be looking at?

The size I'm looking at is 305/55/20. Suggestions?

Why are you trying to make a fashion statement with your TRUCK TIRES? Buy good tires that last & perform comfortably. Forget about how they look.

An aggressive look is somewhat subjective. If you don't mind what are your driving conditions and what is the year and model of your truck?

I'll echo the Wrangler Duratracs. I've been running 275/65R20 on 6-spoke cast XD wheels for the last ~3 years / 60k km and much prefer them over the OEM tires (which looked more like they belonged on a white cube van, they were that indistinct). Excellent traction and I have noticed about a 2% increase in fuel consumption and a slight but certainly livable increase in noise. They look good and perform quite well in Canadian winters.

I ended up ordering a set of Nitto Terra Grapple G2's. I had two set of those on my last truck I had (the G1 models), and both sets got close to 50,000 miles on them before I switched them out. I'm hoping these new G2's will do the same or better.

I agree. The BFG all terrain KO tires that I had on my last truck were amazingly quiet considering how aggressive they looked. In fact, they are probably the most aggressive looking AT tire that I’ve seen. Honestly, I couldn’t even hear them at all over the engine in that truck. My son has a set on his F-150 (a much quieter truck) and I can’t hear those tires either.

That was my first thought also...maybe its a sign of getting old but my tires say “There goes a practical man!”

I ended up going with a set of Nitto Terra Grappler G2's. They look good, and on the highway you can't even hear them. The last set I had I was able to get 60,000 miles out of them....hopefully these will last that long also.
