I need new tires...Help!

I am looking at getting some new tires for my truck. I am in the process of lowering it a tad so that it matches up with my new 5th wheel better. Long story short, I am going from 315s to 305s and am looking at a few different manufactures. I just sold my brand new BFG ATs and was lined up to get the same tire in 505/70/16, now on back order. Im looking at Toyo Open Country, Falken Wildpeak or Hancook RF10s. Nitto Terra Grapplers are also on back order. Any suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated. Thx in advance………

Do not get the NITTO'S. I have 295/75/16 on stock suspension and after one summer of heavy toy hauling they started to cup. I've had them for 2yrs just trying to get moneys worth. I've been hunting for tires for months. I'm bumping up to an 18x10 rim 275/70/18 Goodyear duratracs. Talked to guys that have Toyo's, BFG'S, they didn't have many good things to say. That's what I know hope it helps.

I'm not sure what size wheels you are running but you may want to look into the 285/75R16 size. There are plenty of options in this size and E rated tires in this size will have a higher max pressure than in the E rated tires in the 305 or 315 sizes. When you tow, running your tires at a higher pressure will help stabilize your load, increase your fuel economy and it will also help to maintain your vehicles response. Give us a call if we can help you out, we'd love to earn your business.

Go with the Nitto Trail Grapplers. They are the best tire on the market right now, IMO. I have the Terra Grapplers now and I am shooting myself in the foot for not getting the Trail Grapplers.

I would have to guess that your issue might be that your tires are too big for your rims. Seems to me that heavy hauling with any 295's on 16" rims is going to make the tires cup. IMO
