What do you think?

So I can't decide what to do on the new one. Should I put 285/75R17 Terra Grapplers on the stock wheels (34 x 11.50 equivalent), or do 22.5" Classic Alcoas? I just can't make up my mind.

How much are the stock sized tires gonna run ya vs the Alcoas & the rubber that goes on them? Don't know if cost is a factor for ya.

The Nitto's are going to be about $1700 for a set. The Alcoas will be around $5k after shipping and balancing and truing. All my trucks usually stand out. I've always wanted the 22.5's and I know they will look great. I just don't want to spend all that money and it ride like crap and give me a lt of problems. That's the reason I've been thinking about the Nitto's. They are quite a bit taller than stock tires, but not a hole lot wider. I figured they would still ride great and might even bump my mileage up a little bit. I really want the 22.5's most but just can't decide if it's the best thing to do. Money is not really a factor for me in this decision. I would have to wait another month to do the 22.5's but no big deal.

That's it???? Is that normal for them? I thought a good A/T would get at least 50,000.

I thought the same but I am very disapointed in the longevity of these tires for the money.

Well those are out the window then for sure. What about the Toyo A/T's? Anyone had experience with them? They also have a 285/75/17 in Load E.
