    After six years and 70k+ miles on my 31x10.5r15 XTX Sport tires, I have decided to go with a different tire since these are just too harsh. They were great tires, but they now feel like a bull ride. I just think they are overkill. They still have plenty of tread left.

    I am going with Toyo Open Country HTs (same size). I want a highway tire with a comfortable ride. I really like the optional 31 size instead of the 225 because of the extra height.

    I will let you know how it goes.

    My truck rides SO much better. I love the handling. On another note, my rear shock (fairly new with 5k mi.) was sheared off of its lower eye. Looks like a poor weld. I thought it was just my drive line slip yoke needing grease again.
