    I'm about to replace the tires on my truck, and was looking for some suggestions. My current tires are BF Goodrich AT, 31x10.50, and I've got 15 inch wheels. I'm looking for something fairly similar I guess, but that does a little better on road/highway than my current tires.

    A local dealer has Hancook Dynapro ATM's for what I think is a decent price, but that's about all I've been able to find. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    After I started looking at the BFG A/T's on tirerack, I clicked on a link that took me to a comparison against similar A/T tires. I still have the factory Rugged Fails on the truck and am 90% sure I'm steering towards the Bridgestone Dueler Revo 2's later this year. At least they have a 50k mile warranty.

    Here's the comparison link: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/surveyresults/surveydisplay.jsp?type=ORAT

    Here's the Dueler link: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Bridgestone&tireModel=Dueler+A/T+Revo+2

    They don't look as aggressive as the BFG A/T's but I have other priorities these days.

    Hope that helps.

    I appreciate all the input. I've sorta narrowed it down to a few options. Probably going to go with either the Hancook Dynapro ATM, or the Yokohama Geolander A/T-S. Prices are fairly close to equal. I'm wondering which one is the better choice, so any advice is appreciated.

    Loved my Yokohama Geolander ATS on my F150. Nice quiet tire that handles the rain, light snow, black ice, and light mud very well. Prices were very reasonable too.
