    folks.. I know most of you out there use super agressvie treads tires of most off roading. I am looking for to replace the damn dunflops. its about becoming drag slick tires soon at 25000 miles already.
    What I have in mind Coopers A/T3 is my frist pick (6ply). Firestone distination A/T. I cant find any others that close match to these. I looked at silent amour.. not wild on them due I got a company truck that have prograde amour.. boy talking about nosiy and rides a bit stiff.
    I go offroad during the fall for hunting. do some light towing. So I would like to hear what your thoughts on this.

    I had the destinations on my old truck. Not the best offroad tire but it has real good on road habits for a AT.

    Goodyear Duratracs if you want something a little more aggressive than others mentioned. A little road whine but good ride and so far no issues on wet roads. Looks like I will get about 60k out of mine.

    I have these in 265/70 p rated and they are good in snow, mud, sand. Great all around tire. They seem to be getting a little noisey as they wear but nothing bad. Great choice!

    I dont see that type of tire on market in tire rack.. Its my choice to pick on Coopers .

    TACO TX: did you tow also? any issue with the p rated? I am leaning on the 6 ply .

    I pull my boat, which is not all that heavy but other than that no. If your going to do alot of heavy towing or load the bed down alot then the c rated tire will probaly be a good idea. I also dont do alot of specific off roading, my truck is used for fishing, hunting, camping ect. Just an idea, but the new yokahama geolander is a good looking tire too.

    I have the Bridgestone Revo2s'. I do mostly highway and the only ''offroad'' i do is on construction sites. They are pretty good in the snow too. Very happy with them so far.

    Ok folks... finally got a good set tires coming next tues... after doing some good studies on vary of brands names. The nitto grappler dont come in stock size just one size bigger 265. So.. I ended up with kelly tires.. which is the middle grade type. Bridgestone are the most expsenive. so I will be posting pics soon
