    Needed tires on my 2007 and did the research etc,etc. Was set on the General Grabbers when the tire guy suggested I look at the Firestone Destination A/T. I went on tire rack.com and compared these to the other tires and they rated better then the grabbers. He said he has had a set on his truck for 6 months and loves them. I got the Firestones and so far they have handled very well in the wet, slushy ice and open road. I was on the highway this weekend and the tire noise was very, very low even at 85 MPH. Check out the reviews and survey on tire rack.

    Heard really good things about Nitto Terra Grapplers. My buddy runs them on his dodge 2500, good all around tire.

    I have fierce attitudes made by kelly. I've been running these for two years now and in my opinion they are the best tire I've owned. I had the BFG all terrain k/o but my current tires beat them hands down in all catagories. At least thats what I think.

    Foglights are for fog, not oncoming traffic!
    Most of the tires you listed are not good choices for a driver that spends most of their time on road.
    Those tires are for looks, performance, noise, wear and fuel economy would all suck.
    Look at Michelin LTX AT2's for a better compromise.

    I run General Grabber AT2's on my truck as well. I have not had any issues with them. You can get them for less than the BFG AT's and they look fairly close to the same.

    Had the BFG A/Ts on my old Taco. This truck I have the Hankook Dynapros. Both were excellent tires but for the price I don't think you can beat the Hankooks. Very quiet, very good traction, low price, and if you get the P rated (which I did), they're very light so you don't lost many mpg's. The P265/75r16's are only 6 lbs heavier per tire than the stock P245/75r16 Dunlop AT20's that come on the base model 4x4.
