    Desert Sand Mica/4x4 off road w/lock rear
    Leer cap, rear TSB, BFG All Terrains 10 ply 265/75/16, mud flap trim, black badges, AFE filter, 3" Toytec lift, 884 OME coils, add - leaf, Bilstein 5100 all around
    Purchased BF GOODRICH ALL-TERRAIN, load range e. Was leaning towards HANKOOK DYNAPRO RF-10's but found out the sidewall is only 2 ply.

    My old BF GOODRICH AT'S had 40k on them and was good for at least another 10k. Discount Tire gave me a credit of $58.00 per tire for my old ones - thought it was very reasonable. Total out the door was $797.00.

    By the way - I upgraded to the 265/75/16. No rubbing issues at all!:D

    you'll hear some people say that E rated tires will give you a terrible ride.... I run 285's E rated... and I love 'em.

    The salesman at Discount shared some of those thoughts also. Drove 21 miles today (city) and didn't notice a lot of difference. Except of course - a good solid ride! I drive a truck so a firmer ride is not an issue with me in the least.
