New tires

Hi guys,

Its time for some new tires and was looking at changing it up from what I have now. I have had the Pro Comp Xtreme All terrains and they have been a pretty good tire, but want to change. I have currently 35x12.50x17 tires. I want to stay with an all-terrain tire similar to the tread of what I have. I would also like to get an E-load rated tire instead of D this time, but most of the tires I have looked at are mud terrain. Any suggestions that might work for my truck. I like the Nitto Terra's, or Goodyear Duratracs, but I think both dont come in my size and rating.
Thanks for anyone's help.

The only way you are going to get into a Load Range E 35" All-Terrain tire for a 17" wheel is to go with the 315/70-17 Bridgestone Dueler A/T REVO2. Although not as aggressive looking when compared to the two models you mentioned, the Dueler A/T REVO2 is functional.

Thanks for your help. Thats what I found too. I have been searching a lot lately. What is your opinion on the Nitto Terra Grapplers. I know they are D range, but like the look of them. If I dont go with them, I might go to a m/t. I really like the Toyo M/T and hear a lot of people have good reviews of them. I like that they would be E rated too I spend about 75% on the road and the rest on construction sites. What do you think I should do. Thanks for your help

I'll pose this question here because I'm in a similar situation. I've been running D load range 285/75/16 Revo's since mine was new.

My plan was also to go to a E load range this time, but I'm wondering if I really need to. I've been OK with the Revo's, even towing, although I only tow a boat that's about 7500# but boats tow much easier than TT's or other trailers.

For example, Nitto has a 285/70/17 E load range and a 285/75/17 D load range. Both are rated at 3195 lbs.

Between the 2, will there me much difference in anything from wear to handling, towing etc. between similar sized tires with different load range but same or close lb. rating?

dont get the terra grapplers, they are horrible. Dad had them along with 3 friends and they all agree. I have the xtreme at's and i like them but i think my next tires will be toyo's or maybe the duratracs if these procomps will ever wear out.

Thanks for the info. I will stay away from the Terra Grapplers. I heard they dont wear well on our trucks. My Pro Comps really were a good tire, just wanted to try something different. I think I'm going to go with the Toyo M/T 's. I hear great things about them as far as traction and wear. I do hear from a lot of guys that they wonder to the right. Is that an alignment problem or just the nature of the mud terrain tire. Thanks.

I think TOYO M/T are an AWFUL tire. They are soft, loud, lousy in the rain and snow.

Just my personal opinion....I think somehow they got hyped up and people have the impression they are a great tire.

I've been running 325/60/20 goodyear duratracs for about 3 days and I think they are a great tire. Nice agressive look, very quiet, very good manners on the pavement. Its going to start raining hard tomorrow so we'll see how they do in the rain, but so far Im VERY impressed.

Terra's seem to get about 85% great reviews and 15% terrible reviews. It's usually one extreme to the other. The one thing that usually doens't come up is the application and the tire.

Do you know what size and load range tire they had? What size wheel? Tire pressure and how often were they rotated?

After reading a ton of reviews on them, what seems to be an underlying trend is that they can be particular when it comes to maintenance and with all the different sizes they offer, sometimes tires are mismatched to the application for the sake of size. I think a lot of tire shops are to blame. You wouldn't believe what 4Wheel Parts told me about Nitto compared to Pro Comp. Obviously they're going to push their their own Pro Comp's over another brand even if they sell both, but to have to resort to lying is pathetic. In fairness, that was from their mislabeled, "Sales Assistance" line which from my experience is just a pit of DA punks that want only to be taking orders, anything beyond that or if you question what they say you need to buy, they'll hang up on you. Yes, they did.

my pops has the 315/70/17 dueler revo 2s in a e load range and loves them. We snowmobile a lot and they are great in the snow and ice and also have great road manners. He has had them for about 10 thousand miles and they look great still.

If you still want an AT, I'd go with the Revo's. If you are looking at MT's you may want to consider Nitto's Trail Grappler. Toyo Builds and owns Nitto tires and the Trail Grappler is very similar to the Toyo MT.

The biggest difference will be when towing. The E has a max pressure of 80psi in this size, the D only has a max pressure of 65. If you tow distances having this extra psi can really help stabilize your load.
