    Thornbird tires

    Anyone have experience with them? Was thinking about trying some on a 4WD diesel pickup. I usually stick with one brand of tires like Michelin for pickups, but need a more aggressive tire for offroading.

    Thanks, that's kind of what I was thinking. After I posted this thread I checked online reviews and they were not kind.
    I may check on Super Swamper LTB. But they may be just as loud.

    Never had a set. But from what I have seen and heard of them their not very good off road, their more for show trucks.

    Something like cooper STT or goodyear duratracks would be my choice for mild off roading.

    They don't self clean well at all! Swampers are loud but for off road they are hard to beat. If you want a tire that is good off road and friendly on road then I would strongly consider BF Goodrich all terrains. Yes they are an all terrain, but they are very capable off road and great on snow. Just my 2 cents. Now if you want a true off road tire then the only real tire to consider are boggers.

    BFG all terrains just melt away on a heavy 3/4 or 1 ton truck. Never seen more than 20k miles in my experience on a heavy truck.

    Don't know what kind of rig you are looking to outfit R&G man. Can you help us out?

    Goodyear duratracs... I have a set on my diesel crew cab and so far have 58,000 miles on em. Work well in mud, fantastic in snow and wear very well.

    Stuckbirds are all around a bad idea, LTBs will melt down on the highway, and I 3rd the bfgs will disappear on pavement.

    Don't let my Ford friends read this, the tires are for a Ram 2500 4WD pickup. I love the 5.9 Cummins engines. May put some on a F350 in the near future too.

    Thanks for the input on the tires, guys.

    I had a set of Federal Couragias on my truck for a while. Best off road tire I've ran, but miserable on the road. Loud, rough, last about 20k.
