    I feel like I may be beating a dead horse for the umpteenth time but I could use some input. I'm looking for some stock size (265/70/16) A/Ts for my '03. Don't plan on doing a lift and after looking at some LT tires I don't think I need them. I have the OEM BFGs on my truck right now that have been on there since it was purchased 7 years ago and they suck mighty fierce. (Only had 28k miles by the previous owner)

    A good chunk of my driving is highway. About 100 miles a day so I need some that will last for a while and give me excellent rain and snow traction. Offroading consists of mostly trails and taking my Taco down to Moab a few times a year. Nothing too intense but I still want good traction.

    I've been looking at the Open Country, LTX AT2, and Revo 2

    It sounds like the Michelins are the tire for you. They last a LONG time. and give great traction on and off road. The only downside to them is the price.

    If it's on-road mostly LTXs are for you. Incredibly durable.

    Thanks for all the input. I might be sold on the Hankooks. Local Discount has them for $130 each which is infinitely cheaper than the Michelins.

    Another vote for the Hankooks. It is tough to beat the price.

    another one to consider would be the general grabber a/t since you are not getting
    bigger tires. they don't come in 285's. i emailed the company two weeks ago, and they have no plans to make a 285/70/17. that sucks.
