So i never had an extra set of tires, but i asked a local mechanic that goes to a trail nearby and said i need some good all terrains, i showed him mine and said i need better ones.
i dont wana sacrifice the set i have and wanted to see what other offroad alternative i can put on the truck when im planing to go out on a trail?

Also new wheels (which i would love the bronze color)

Im open for ideas guys!! but remember im still in stock ride height and my current tires are 265x75r15

I currently have these on 3 vehicles, ranging from 31" on my E250 to 37" on my bronco. Excellent traction on dirt, mud, and rocks. About 30k mile tread life if kept rotated. Moderate road noise.

Super Swamper 31x10.5R15LT Tire, IROK ND - IND-06

what wheels you running?
those dont look to bad but man D: 500 each? thats like 2k in tires dang!
500!?!? They are like 170 each on my end for 31x10.50x15. My 37s were 275 a number of years ago. Thats one reason i like em, they are cheaper than most mud tires.

I have them on stock steel 16x7 wheels on the e250, pro comp 1069 16x8 on the bronco, and US Mags Indy 101 17x9 on the 96 f350.

Ive owned firestone destination MTs (gen 1 and gen 2), goodyear wrangler MTR, Swamper SSRs, Swamper TSL Radials, BFG all terrains, nitto terragrapplers, and these Irok NDs. They are by far the best all around tire Ive had.

All terrains are for mall crawlers and daily drivers. If you are getting trail specific tires, get em as aggressive as possible. Get in any mud, and those ATs turn into drag slicks. Then you go nowhere...

previous owner seems to have taken it to the mud and took me 2 months to clean the underside of the truck and its STILLL covered in someplaces like crazy, like when im working on a plug all of a sudden 5lbs of mud and sand land on my face hahahah

Mud definitely sucks. But mud is inevitable, and im not talking about giant mud holes. Im talking wet trails with rock ledges, etc. Mud makes those obstacles much harder. The big lugs do wonders on rocks and soft terrain: they grab on to rocks and keep you from sliding sideways. Mud terrains of any kind are 10x better on trails than an all terrain.

Beings you are in PR, I would just try to find something locally. For a dedicated trail tire, big lugs and enough space to lay an index finger between them are gonna do everything you need.

yeah big lugs is nice but i dont want to go on muddy trains, i want to go on normal dirt trails and nothing insane, cause i know here in PR is MEGA muddy trust me i seen them, but not all the time .......plus if i go to the trail its gonna be at most 1 time a year, not going to be every weekend so something cheap and decent and store them when im not using them

Ha! I have 245/75-16 on my econoline. 30x9x16. The 265 would be an inch wider. The 285 is 33" and another inch wider yet. I think i would stick with the 265 tire for max flex and clearance.

These are the 245s freshly installed on a factory 99 E250.

Cant help ya there. Too many preferences! Method makes some sweet wheels but they are $$$$. Could always paint a cheap set of steel wheels.
