Default Moved to the desert, need better tires

Hi all. One thing has led to another and I find myself starting a new life in the desert, meaning many dirt roads, rocky roads. I have a 1995 Nissan pickup extended cab 2wd v6, and I believe my tire size is 215/75r14. Just got new Hankook ”ptimo 724 tires back in August, but Iím afraid theyíre not going to hold up to this challenging terrain. What are my options if I donít want to mess with getting new rims? Will these tires work? All the tire terminology throws me for a loop.


Thanks for your help.

I just bought a truck with these tires but they're 31x10.5x15's. I took a quick ride on a trail near my home to listen for any unusual suspension noises and the tires were fine. The trail is a mixture of dirt, sand and granite rock. I'm not sure where you're at but I'd also consider increasing your ground clearance if you plan on driving over rocks.

I buy my tires from Discount Tire or Tire Rack, their websites will let you to compare tire brands, sizes and type.

My brother has one of the full size RAM 4wd trucks. He has a set of BF Goodrich all terrain tires and he loves them. The truck kept destroying goodyears.
