    Nitto terra grapplers, Michelin LTX A/T2, Dueler a/t Revo, or Toyo open country?

    Looking for some 265/75/R16's. I’m having a hard time choosing. I drive 2500 Miles per month. 90% on pavement. Looking for a long lasting tire with a comfy and quiet ride, with mild to moderate off road capabilities. The options listed above seem to be top picks on this site. Any suggestions biased on my needs?
    Thanks!

    Im really fond of the Nitto Terra Grapplers. 40,000 miles+ depending how hard I am on them, and great off road. :)

    probably will come down to price... nittos and toyos will be the cheapest and you cant go wrong wtih any of those choices you listed.

    Toyo and Nitto are made by the same company. Terra Grapplers and Open Country A/Ts are the same tire. The Nittos are significantly cheaper.

    Don't know a thing about the Michelin other than I don't hear about them on the offroad forums.

    Michelins are a great long wearing on road tire, but you pay for them. The Revo's on my last truck (00 Taco) were a pain in the butt trying to keep them rotated fast enough so they wore even. They liked to chop real bad. A friend of mine has toyos on his 05 double cab and they have worn great.

    I did it again. Got tired of paying truck payments and gas and traded in for a 2015 Honda Accord Sport since I enjoyed my 2013 Sport so much.
    Mostly on pavement you say?

    Then the Dueler AT Revos.

    I just got them and am loving em. Haven't had a chance to go wheeling with them yet though.
