    Didn't like the BF goodrich all terrain that came with my purchase.
    Ride wasn't that smooth, traction was not great and I just didn't like it. I think they were the originals with 27k on them.

    So I went with the Michelin ltx m/s I grabbed through discount tire.
    ( pretty sure: P265/70R-16 111S) Addressing other threads, I went "white-label-out"

    After a week, I like them a lot. Ride is so much smoother, and it's been raining lately and the traction is great. I admit to jamming a little more around corners and these tires stick..

    Quiter, Smoother, handling, & traction all improved.
    I am a mostly "city" truck guy (lowes/dump and back ) it would be rare that I would do any rough offroading but we do get snow and ice here in the seattle area so we'll see next winter.

    I admit that I am no tire expert by any means so take my review with a grain of salt. Hope this helps someone or is interesting.
