    I am in the process of looking for some new tires. i will probably go a size bigger 265/75-16. Does anybodey have some good suggestions on what to get. i dont want crazy road noise but i also want decent traction in a wide variety of conditions because i will be doing some off roading.

    Yes on 265/75 for stock height. I have been very pleased with my Nitto Terra Grapplers.

    For the guy that asked the price of them.

    265/75/16's here were $732 mounted and balanced.

    285/75/16's were $922 mounted and balanced.

    The prices will vary on them weekly around here.

    Hankooks or the Nittos fit your description well. Read some reviews on each and take your pic I'd say. Consider weight and price too, iirc the dynapro was lighter/cheaper in the sizes I looked at but I don't remember ha research!
