Looks at his description, he went with duratracs, as did i. They are much more agressive than firestone destination AT (i had these on my old truck) the duratracs are pretty awesome offroad and kick ass in the snow but they are very aggresive for an AT, a little loud on the highway

I upgraded to a set of 265/75/R16 Falken Wild Peaks and they are great so far. Came highly recommended by my tire man who puts everything on our rigs.

Have put about 10K miles on highway, rocky county roads, mud, and sand and they've performed well in all conditions.

I second the Michelins. I had 80K miles on a set on my last vehicle and they still had plenty of tread. Good all around tire for road, snow, mud.

Exactly, I wanted something more aggressive. Yes, a little louder but not bad IMO. Besides, Duratracs are just badass.

I'll be getting new tires on Wednesday. Went with the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armour.
I wasn't getting around with the Triple Treads in the snow @ 5/32's left. i had 39K on them. They weren't eligible for tread wear warranty yet but my local dealer said he could push them through. Called today and said he had authorization for the tread wear warranty, he originally told me I would get credit for 1/3 tread. Goodyear authorized 50%! Soo...! Four new Wrangler Silent Armors 265/65/17, mounted, balanced, life time rotation and balance, road hazard and sales tax $718 OTD!!!!

I'm a happy camper.

Not sure-just grabbed a photo with the tire and unknown rim. I have these installed on the 16" Toyota Aluminum rims.

I will soon need to replace my "stock" tires, so I need advice from you folks on the direction to go!

I realize, I cannot have everthing in this replacement tire, so I'll go for the one that meets the majority of my wants:

1. Stock size
2. somewhat quiet
3. Long tread-life (I'm retired and not rich )
4. 75% hi-way, 25% off road on un-improved dirt fireroads (somewhat muddy after a storm). So, a true road tread will not do the job. Been to many places where the stock tires failed and I had to go to 4-wheel, to get out!!

Thanks for the help!

Just put these on my truck a couple weeks ago, and they have been an amazing upgrade over the stock tires. Better handling, quieter, much better grip on wet pavement. Highly recommend.
