    Throw my vote in for the Hankook Dynapro M/T. Got them a few weeks ago and love them so far, much better than the Duratracs I had before and not any louder at freeway speeds.

    Got the set shipped from Discount Tire Direct for $775, can't beat the price to performance ratio. Was going to get the Kevlars, however, they would have been almost $300 more. I can buy a spare of the Hankooks with the savings.

    Edit: 285/75/16 tire size.

    hey OP, did you choose a tire yet?! i finally got to wheel my tires this wknd, overall i was impressed with them, good grip on rocks, not a lot of heavy mud but in the mud that was on the trail performance was good.

    I am in the same boat as OP and I am kind of curious what he ended up going with. Anyone know of other threads where people talk about what tires they have/like.
