    Got some pics, sorry for the quality to much contrast, but you get a look at the new 955s wrapped with Dayton Timberline M/Ts in Machine Black finish size 265/75/17 what ya think good or bad it's all just an opinion and mine is the one that matter's most :rolleyes:

    I think they look good, not my first choice for rims but i like the look on your truck. I really like your tires. I want MT's but i'm worried about how much it affects the ride quality. Right now my truck rides like a car and is very quiet. I'm afraid MT's will give me a much rougher ride and make me go deaf on the interstate. Can you tell a big difference?

    Most MT's are pretty quiet, but you will get a little hum. If you're looking for a quiet MT, try and find something where the lugs of the tire tread are fairly close to each other. The further the lugs are, the more noise you're gonna get. I like to use the BFG MT's or Goodyear MT's as an example of lug spacing. Not to far apart and pretty quiet on the road.

    Scutch10 is dead on, I owned BFG A/T's before the Timberline M/T setup and the road hum is something you almost always have to live with if you want better grip in the mud and slush, thanks for the feed back. :D
