    As most of my driving is on the highway with very little to no off roading (new baby= no time), is there anyone running all season tires? I'm looking at the GY Fortera's, they are the highest rated all season highway tire on tirerack. Anybody want to chime in on their thoughts? Thanks.

    i had a set of those on my f150(before i traded it)....awesome riding tire, good tread mileage too. i took them off before i traded...sold them to a buddy of mine, and he got 60k out of them.....even pulling trailers with golf cars all the time. he did rotate and balance every 5 or 6k, and kept the pressure set in them, but they were a really awesome tire. i think you'd be happy with them.

    Using dtd's tire calculator, I see that a 285/60 r-18 is close in spec's to my off road's 265/70 r-16, this biggest difference being the overall circumference, 2-3/4". Would these tires work without any issues?

    i think you would have alot of rub with any 285, without a lift. i could be wrong....but im pretty sure.
