Default Help! Best all around tire? (Looks, dependability, price point)

I have a 2012 f150 four door 4x4 with a 2.5 in level in the front.
Im trying to figure out which tire will suit me best. I want 35s. What do yall recommend!? Best all around with looks price and durability of the tire. Thanks in advance! Im in Texas so will only be used in mud and on the road, no snow.

I just put a set of Nitto Ridge Grapplers in 35x11.50 on my truck Monday. The looks are great and the traction is perfect up here in the snow, I'm sure they do great in the mud too!

I also just put some ridge grapplers on my truck the other day. Got them in a 275/70r18, and although they're only 33s, they look amazing and have been performing very well so far. However, in a 35 they're pretty expensive and if you're not worried much about road noise you could get something like cooper stt pros for a decent amount cheaper I believe. From what I've heard, they're pretty good tires and they look great too.

I went with the Falken Wildpeak at3w and so far love them. I went with 285/75 17 which is right at 34 and they were $800 out the door at discount tire. I could not find a better tire for the money anywhere.

Majority of the AT or MT tires will be good for you...

How often are you mudding to daily?

I would most likely go with an AT if you do more roads than Mud.

BFG K02, Falken Wildpeak AT3, Toyo Open Country AT or RT Etc..

Pick your poison! There are A LOT to choose from.

JT,

What do you guys typically run on your chase trucks? Which tire holds up best rolling around in the desert on a non-race vehicle in your experience?

We are sponsored by Falken so we run the Falken Wildpeak MT during the Races.

I would go with an AT tire as an everyday tire.

I definitely drive more on road than off. However, with my truck I'm going with the simple but aggressive look (brush guard, level, and soon to be nice tires). So I either want mildly aggressive MT's or an aggressive AT. I'll look in to your suggestions, thanks!!

Another +1 for Ridge Grapplers.

IMO, they're comparable to the KO2 in both road noise and behavior, but look more aggressive. Can't speak for mileage, but after regular rotations every 3-4k mine still look nearly new after 15k miles.
