    well guys not sure if this is already been posted but I heard Walmart is selling these very agressive almost MT like AT tires. For my size 265 70 17 they are $175 I went to look at them and I am not too impressed. The tread is very soft and doesnt seem like it would do well in the summer heat. When I called the dept the guy said these are a MT tire, so he works there and hes wrong. I dont have any pics but if you visit the website you can easily find it.

    They're a cross between an AT and an MT. You can get the Duratrac for the same price, and it looks far superiour. The tread is pretty soft for both tire, but it's getting pretty good reviews as of late (The Duratrac).

    I just put the authority's on. There is a noticeable hum when you driving over 40mph. But its not to bad when you have the radio on ;) These are load range E. So i guess its a little stiffer ride, but i think more responsive. I dont have many miles on them yet but so far i like them.

    I love the wranglers in the snow. I had bfg's all terrain on my other tacoma. but i gotta say these have more traction in the snow. I have not had them in the mud. So far no complaints.

    When i bought the tires i measured them with a depth caliper, and they were at 0.560" I had just had wally world rotate them at 5000 miles and i am now reading 0.50" One tire was at 0.46" but i am sure that was the drive tire. I think they are wearing good. But i never measured with my others tires to be certain.

    By my calculations, at .06" wear per 5k miles, that'll take you down the road just under 47k miles until they're absolutely bald. Of course, the one that's at .46"? That comes out to around 28k miles. Wuz up wit dat?
    They're rated 50k miles, per the WalMart dude I talked to tonight, so I guess you're close. That .46" must be your drive tire. Are you scratching off alot?
    What's you're tread depth now after all this time? Do you still like the tires?

    I'm getting new tires in a week or two, are you guys still happy with the goodyear authority tires? Or would you go duratrac next time? Their's a $40 price difference for me, but if the authorities are shit, I'll pay the extra.

    Thanks,

    Adam
