    Tires

    Hello:

    I have a 2014 F150 4 x4 and need to get a new set of tires.
    I 4 x 4 on the beach at South Padre Island and want to get a
    bigger tire that will grab the sand. Am also interested in lifting my truck 2-3 inches.
    Any recommendations?

    Thanks

    Welcome Jim. I would say you would want a good All Terrain type tire. Maybe a BFG AT or like a Nitto Terra Grappler. you don't want too aggressive, as they will just dig too fast and make it worse. Also you want to get them as wide as you can to increase the contact area with the soft sand.

    As for the lift, you should be able to bump up a couple inches in tire size with a simple leveling kit. I'm not a Ford guy, so I don't really know what's available for that truck.

    I just drove from Fort Worth to Washington state in my F250 on a brand new set of BFG KO2's towing about 8000lbs. They did great and I had no issues. The little offroading my truck does, fire roads towing the jeep to the camp, they do fine.
