tire help

I need some help choosing tires for my truck. I just drive it on the highway and a little off roading once in awhile. I do not tow or pull anything. Should I get D or E load range? and also Im looking between the Goodyear Duratrac in 265s or the Nitto Terra Grappler in 285s. Im just trying to get a tire that will last, my last set got me 15k

An E rated tire is going to last the longest on a heavy truck. I've heard great things about both the tires you mentioned, but I'd recommend the Hankook ATM RF10's. Its a pretty aggressive AT tire that has performed GREAT on my truck in the mud, snow, rain and ice

I don't really know what size is good for the OBS's . The Hankooks in a D range are 'snow rated', but the E are not. Like I said, I have zero complaints on my Hankooks in ANY condition. 10" of snow I run in 2wd, but my truck is likely a little heavier than yours since mine is a CCSB. These tires also have a 50k warranty one them

Well i have 245/75-16 now. What would the benefit be of going to a 285/75-16 or is a better benefit a 265?

I have used both the Hankooks and DuraTracs on my F350's with good results. The DuraTrac has a more aggressive tread pattern for snow.

I had about 25K miles on the Hankooks when I sold the 2002 F350. I would say I had about 10-15K tread left. I have only used the DuraTracs one winter on the 2011 F350- no visible signs of wear yet.
