    Hello all,

    My truck has 40,000 km on her and I still have the shitty stock Dunlops AT20 which are pretty much worn out and not highway safe anymore, Ive been reading some threads about tires but we dont have that many options in Mexico.

    I think Ive decided to go with the 265/70 R17 size, just so they look a lil bit bigger than stock (also if it doesn't carry further problems with the truck)

    Now I'm undecided about doing an AT or HT tire, mainly because AT are heavier and noisier, but also cheaper than HT

    The tires Im thinking of are

    BFG All Terrain
    Dueler Revo 2 (this I can buy 3 and get 1 free, but are still expensive)
    Toyo open Country AT
    Toyo open country HT
    Michelin LTX MS2
    Euzkadi Overlander HT
    Goodyear Wrangler (dont know which one)
    Also heard Pirelli Scorpion are good

    Bottom line I need a reliable, comfortable, durable, cheap tire, not too much to ask huh? :D

    Opinions?

    Out of the ones you listed, I would choose the Toyot A/T's first, then the Perelli Scorpions.

    I dont think tehy do. They are a generic M+S (Mud and Snow) tire, IIRC.

    To meet your "bottom line needs" I would say Firestone Destination AT.....great ratings on Tirerack and affordable.....may put these on my Tundra as I need new summer tires.

    Having said that I just put BFG AT's on my little TACO because of my hunting needs in the fall:

    When I got my TACO it came with brand new Pirelli Scorpion Ice&Snow...they were great this past winter:

    Hope this helps

    Comfort, ride and best bang for your buck? Michelin LTX. Hands down.

    There's a reason 99% of ambulances run them. And yes, I've also had them on my own truck.

    They're not the most aggressive, but they cannot be beat for comfort, ride and bang for buck.

    I have the Michelin LTX MS2's and love them. I drive 99%highway so it is perfect for me. Smooth, 70K tread warranty and handles awesome in rain and gravel/dirt roads. Not very aggressive looking is the only negative I see. Check my profile to see pics of tire on my truck.
