So I just wanna say thanks to all you guys that helped me deciding tires. You guys are the best and only one for question and I can order my tires tonight. Sorry guys lol. Would you do in 265/75/16 duratracs or BFg ats. Both are load e and are 54 lbs. I drive a lot on the highway so I was thinking BFg cause I heard people getting 50 to 60 k out of them. But again the looks of the duratracs are very liking. I know since I drive a lot the best choose is to have BFg ats but I like duratracs haha. I know the dura come in a load c and there only 45 lbs in this size but I heard the side walls suck and need e. help me lol. I do 21k a year and I feel like I'll eat up the duratracs like crazy but that's just me.

So did this guy ever make up his mind or what?? Not sure how he didn't notice that BGF AT's are available in a 275/70/16 D load range at 51lbs a piece.

Still not as light as the Duratracs in a 265/75/16 C range (45lbs), but lighter than the BFG AT's in a 265/75/16 E range (54lbs).

For what it's worth, I'm currently running a set of Duratracs in a 265/75/16 C range and hardly noticed a dip in mpg. Also have 20k+ miles on them and they're wearing very nicely, still plenty of tread left.

Maybe he did notice, but he possibly dismissed them because they are smaller in diameter than the 265s.

^Yeah very slightly, but it does seem like a happy medium for all the qualities he's after in a tire.

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.
