New Medic truck

Post by offroad_medic on Sat May 06, 2017 10:22 pm

So I figured I would finally start a thread for my new pickup. For those of you that don't know, when I sold Brady the T4R I ended up getting a 2010 Nissan Frontier. I decided a pickup was the ideal setup for what I am wanting to build this time around. Unfortunately an older Taco was out of the question since they all had more miles than I wanted or were out of my price range. So the Frontier it is and I have been loving it.

The immediate list of mods for now is new tires. I am debating on the size I currently want. It came with 265/75/16 when i bought it which fit without any suspension adjustment at all. Here are the options I am looking at for now unless someone can convince me otherwise for my budget:

I think the main debate I am having right now is should I stick with the 265/75/16 or go with the 235/85/16 scratch

I like the look of the Mastercraft the most of the 3. What is the price difference between the 235/85 and the 265/75?

I have read really good reviews on the Kenda and guys getting great mileage from them but the Mastercragt look awesome. Looking more into it the douche that sells them on amazon only allows you to buy 1 at that price and then the others are all around $200/tire so the mastercragt are out.

That being said I will be getting the Kendas now it's just a size issue. For a set of all four tires the 235 is about $80ish cheaper than the 265.

I like a skinny so I vote for the 235s too. You may not like load range E on that little truck though.

If you like the Mastercraft's though you should hit up Mica at the Jay's Tire in Bountiful. He sells a bunch of those and would probably get you a good deal. He's on the UTOR Facebook page if you want to page him.

I was waiting for the skinny tire master to chime in here. Haha Load range E won't bug me that bad honestly as that's what I've always have on my 4x4's. The 235 Kendas are just under $139/tire before tax so the price is pretty hard to beat. Maybe I'll hop on the FB and hit him up for a quote though since I need to get these ordered so they can be mounted up before heading camping on the 19th.

Well I got my shiny new tires mounted up today and they look awesome and don't have that much road noise that I've noticed yet. I also installed a 32" lightbar into the natural void in the grill and it's a miracle to be able to see at night.




**Edit** I ended up going with the Kenda Klever M/T sized in a 235/85/16
