    Im looking into getting some new tires soon and im wondering which kind. I would like to know what you would get and why. Thanks alot for your help. I will be doing 65% On-Road and 35% Off-Road. Not too worried about MPG but would still like to get decent MPG for a truck. I can stand road noise but as long as its not louder than the stock speakers. And I would like these tires to last me for a decent amount of miles. And I would like them to look good too.

    ha h aha ha yes round ones, perferably black ones... lmao ha. i just mounted some km2's on my gf's runner. looks great, balanced WAY better than what i thought they would. did very well in snow and mudd. haven;t had them on the rocks yet... very low road noise, and not bad wear either... i am probly gonna get them for my truck when my pieces of crap wear out. i would personnally stay away from good year. i hate that brand. mainly cuz the mtr does so freakin bad in mud its not even funny! and they are not very round ha balance like shit. all terrains do ok... eh thats what i say about those...

    ah, ok. I heard about them being terrible in mud.
    Pretty much any AT is going to suck in mud because the tread blocks are so close together. The coopers do look really good IMO for an AT.

    I like the Copper STT's alot but based off your choices up top I'd have to go with the Duratracs...they're like a A/T meets M/T...Can't go wrong with that! :)

    I got the Hankooks Dyna Pro A/Ts and couldn't be happier with em. They have a 50k Tread Warranty and a decent tread pattern. I got em at DT for 580 OTD including warranties and everything :)

    Theres videos of my truck with duratracs at hollister hills, but nothing in the mud, and none of the hard stuff. Theres one of me doing a fat hill climb and dicking around at the obstacle course though. No one was taking video when we were on the trails in the good stuff
