or if you have run something better what was it and why was it better?

I put the ltx/ms on mine about 4k ago and they are awesome! much smoother and quieter then my good years. they were just under 200 a tire by the time I paid mount/ballance and all the other BS.

I did alot of reading on them (tirerack, discount tire and a few others) and many who have them on 3/4 and 1ton trucks claim 60 to 80k miles on them. some even a few more! I would be very happy with 60k miles.

I went with the LTX M/S also, kinda a cross between the rib and traction. Real quiet
and nice ride. They seem to be lasting much better than the GoodYears. I get the 'E'
rated tire.

XPS is a commercial tire, I would guess the ride would suffer some.
