Default BFG ATs or Goodyear Duratracs

I need help making my final choice on tires. I will be running a 2" Hell Bent leveling kit. And I am looking at either 275/70R18 BFG ATs or 295/65R18 Goodyear Duratracs. If you are running either of these two tires in these sizes, please post pics if you have them. I prefer stock wheels since that's what I will be running. I am looking to see what will fill out the wheel wells better. If you have any positive input please share.

Also I am looking at the Duratrac tires mainly because of the reviews I have read about how they handle in the snow. Can anyone on here give me some feedback for these tires?

Thanks in advance!

I have the Duratracs on my Tacoma and have loved them. No complaints at all.

I have the DuraTracs in that same size and I love them! Always quiet, handles good, ride a little rough but what LRE Tire won't?

However honestly you can't go wrong with either tire. Just pick whichever looks best to you.

Default Duratracs

Im running 276/65/20 duratracs, had them about a month and love them. No complaints at all have handled well in everything. snow/packed highway snow they handled awesome no slips at all lots of control.

Yeah, I've heard they did great in the snow but have never had the opportunity to try myself and I'm moving up to a bigger size tire so the duratracs are out of the question for my next set

Good looking truck btw!

A little narrow for a 275 but thats why I'm stepping up to a 325 wide tire next!
