What tires are you running on stock rims ? (17")

The 315/ 70/ 17 BF Goodrich all terrains I had on my truck are crap.

Within 25,000 miles 2 are cupped so bad that they need to be replaced.

I always had them rotated every 7k or so and them balanced whenever I felt a vibration.


I was keeping them at 50 psi.


What are you guys running for an all terrain tire on the 17" rims ?

My truck has 295/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers when I bought the truck. They look pretty good considering the center link and driver's side ball joint needed to be replace. I have been running them at 75PSI.

Treadwear on the BFG's has been fine. Just the uppin issues on 2 tires.

I had the front end checked out twice over the period to check for any wear on suspension or ball joints.

Had the tires road force balanced and that is where the vibration is coming from.
