I'm looking for a set of 265/75/16 tires, at least I will be in the next month.
My dad came home with a 2012 Ram 1500 5.7L Hemi quad cab a week after I bought my truck and I realized that something had to be done about the stock wheels on my 2012 Taco AC.
I have 265/75/16 Firestone Destination M/T's on my '01 Taco.. sure they're great in the mud; but horrible everywhere else it seems. I despise the reinforced sidewalls for everyday driving. The truck is light weight, it wants to kick out over some bumps, I've never driven it on the interstate.
I drive on the highways 90% of the time it seems. I drive roughly 18k miles a year just for work, maybe another 4-5 for other stuff. Come hunting season, the truck will see alot of back roads. Needless to say, A/T's is what I'm looking for.
Sure the stock tires are pretty comfortable. Quite enjoyable actually. But they're no fun. I think they're ugly.
I know Destination A/T's are recommended alot on here, I've also heard nice things about Nitto and General Grabber, BFG T/A.
What type of A/T tire should I look at for ride quality, won't kill my mpg, yet still good off the paved roads? I've seen P and LT come up, what about load ratings? C, D, E?
