Which Tires?

I have about 36k on my original set of Michelin LTX A/T's. I'm probably not going to make it through the summer on this set. Any good tires in stock size? Not looking for All Terrian.

Which Tires?

Micheline ltx, they last for a long time. They are more for on road use

I've used the ltx before too. They come factory on the Dodge trucks.



Did not feel all that great in the rain, a little scary actually. Not worth a squat in the mud.

People do say they get 90K miles out of them though and I've heard of people getting even more than that. I never kept them that long because I don't like them.



Firestone transforce, BFG Longtrails, or BFG Ruggedtrails are some other ones people have said they have got good wear out of.

20' Wheels. All my driving is on Asphalt.

What about Toyo Open Country H/T Tuff Duty?

Main issue is my H&S Tune is really killing my rears.

Also the Nitto Duragrapplers last a long time from what I have read, they sell Nittos at Discount tire too. That is where I got my trail grapplers at.

I've not found the Nittos or Toyos to last any longer than the other makes of tires. My mileage with them was about the same as the Contis, coopers etc

I have DuraGrapplers on my '04 Land Rover Discovery. They are great tires but not sure how they will hold up on a 8k lb truck that tows, and that has 1,000 ft lbs of TQ

Get the Nitto Dura Grappler Tire LT275/65R20/10 for less at Walmart.com. Save money. Live better.


It says 3750lb rating and 80lbs max air. I assume that is an E rated.
