    If your looking for pics, go up to the shop online and click on The Tire Rack. What I have read about the tire and the rating from The Tire Rack along with the price it will eventually be my next tire. You can use the tire racks pricing and Discount Tire will meet it and order them for you if your don't already have a local place. Ken:cool:

Nice thing was I got the truck for $4000
    I paid $140 at Tire rack plus a shitload for shipping. My total was 705.00. I don't have any compaints about these tires though, exept for the fact that when you first get them they'll through rocks like a bastard. Other than that there great in the snow (I haven;t had to use 4 wheel drive even with 8 inches of snow) and in mud (never gotten stuck....yet), and everywhere else. NO hydroplaning or road noise at all on the highway. They also balanced pretty well too. Heres a pic of some 285/75/16's on my 1st gen:
