    So im interested in getting this tire size for my next set. I won't need tires for a couple months still, just feeling it out. Now preferably I would like a C load range A/T tire, but the only 2 I have found anywhere are Firestone Destination A/T or Bridgestone Dueller A/T REVO2. Anyone know of any tires other than these two that fit my criteria and where to find them? There are lots of other tires in this size but they are all either P rated or load E

    Oh and if anyone has preference between the Firestone or Bridgestone input is appreciated!

    Well Dan, I think you should Definitely go with a C rated tire as you work in forestry and travel lots of bush roads... flats arnt cool. The firestones are also lighter and cheaper so they will be easier on your wallet. Having a lighter a slightly thinner / slightly taller tire than the E rated Kellys 265/75r16s you are running will also lead to better MPGs i rekon.












    And if you are wondering, no i dont actually have a split personality
    Any other opinions?:)

    Old thread! But ya I decided to keep on rocking the 265/75/16. So many choices, looks awesome with my mild lift, and didn't have to bother with new rims.
