    idk i just checked the price of them at at just shy of 1000 seems pretty steep i will not be using them in the winter i am going to keep my rims on my nittos and use them in the winter and get a new set of wheels and tires for the other seasons. Do they make it in a 6ply or ne thing smaller that would keeep the price down at all?

    Duratracs would be my choice if I went off road more. I went with Hankooks because I usually drive on road, they got great reviews online and very good price. BTW they are very quiet and ride even better than the OEM Dunlops did.

    Did the P rated because "E" rated LT is over kill on our trucks if they are mostly driven on the street like mine is. I got the P265/70/17 from Town fair tire for $125 plus balance and tax per tire. Looks like Discount Tire Direct is about the same price after rebate. http://www.discounttiredirect.com/d...c=10817&counter=1&ar=70&rd=17&sw=false&cs=265

    Cooper Discover S/T's. Great all around tire. Aggressive but wears good. Goes good in snow and mud. For the money they are the best IMO.

    I don't think Hankook makes a p rated in that size either. Any of those tires have many people on here giving them good reviews. Do you have a lift? Those tires require a 3" lift to clear. Goodluck with whatever you end up with.

    Well then I would probably go with the Nittos. MANY people on here seem to like them, they would be lower in weight than a LT and they seem to cost less than others.
