    Anyone have any thoughts or experience with these tires?? They look pretty cool. I'm looking at the because they are a 275/70/17 tire. I wonder how they preform in snow and on ice in the winter??

    i found only load E as well.
    Ive heard load E is too hard though, and is very bad on mileage. Any one else have input?

    I have the 275s and like them. Theay are a fairly stiff tire but aren't bricks. Make a little noise on the road but not too bad. So far so good for me in the 500 miles I've put on them.

    I'd take a load E over anything else. I wheel my truck pretty hard as well. I'm running these in 35x12.5 and the wear is terrible & noise is horrid. Not sure how they perform offroad yet, if I remember I will chime back in here.

    I have a set of 285/75/R16's on my 07. They look amazing. They are loud, they chunk over time, they wear poorly and since I am mainly on road I hate them. The wear issues are so bad I have to rotate them every 1000 miles or they develop a feathering that causies them to shake. Truck has been aligned over and over again trying to correct this. I have given up and determined its the tires.

    These are coming off soon and AT's are going on.
