I need tires ASAP!

Well today the truck hydroplaned a little bit, it was enough to make me say its time for tires... lol. I want an AT and Im looking at the Toyo open country ATII. They are a hair too aggressive for me. I like the simple look truck tire but I want something that will get good grip in the snow whenver we get it. Thus leading me to the Toyos. I know about Terra grapplers but Ive read more bad it seems then good traction wise.

Anyone have suggestions and places to buy/get them installed?

Had no problems with my terras. put almost 40k on them and got bored with em.
if the atII is too aggressive, you may have to stick with stock rubber. thats about as weak of an all terrain there is to me.. kinda of like the Cooper zeon LTZ. they are basically the same as the toyo atII

hahha yeah. I just dont think it would look right on the truck with stock rims? Maybe it will, I dont know. I have to find a KR like mine and see.

Also the Cooper AT3 look decent.

The Toyo MTs are better than you'd think on snow. I'm sure their ATs would do well.

Terra grapplers are soft.. They will last with proper rotation and not doing burnouts lol. You smoke me they wear fast.

I am probably going to end up getting BFG ATs when the time comes for new tires. I thought about the Terras but have heard too many bad things about them.

Toyo MTs are also on the list, I hear they are great tires.
