    i have the same size as you ^ only had them since January and my tread is almost half way, I do drive alot (put about 20,000 on them) but I always rotate them every 5,000 miles and im kind of dissapointed with the life on these.

    I think next time im going with the Toyo open country's, or BFG,s AT KO's, Nittos wear to quick IMO

    well if you dont plan on doing much off roading then i would say passenger rated tires would be fine and also much cheaper but if you do you might just spend the extra money on some good all terrains that are light truck rated just to be on the safe side

    I have these also, P rated is just fine and they have held up well to my occasional offroading.

    20k and half way through the tread, so 40k for new tires and you are disappointed? I'll be thrilled that mine last that long!
    BTW..Toyo and Nitto are made by the same company. My bf had the Toyo and they didn't last 20k. Toyo/Nitto are a softer tire than BFG so they will wear slightly faster, but IMO they provide a much nicer ride. ;)

    The Load Range D TGs are not as heavy as KOs with the same load range, but the passenger tires will hold up well. I ran 265/70/17 TGs on my 03 4Runner and never had an issue with the sidewalls failing. I ran them at Paragon and Rausch which both have lots of sharp rocks (slate mostly) and didn't run into any issues. They do wear faster than other tires (you'll be lucky to get 30k from them), but they provide more grip in the dry and wet and a better ride than other tires I have used (KOs, Firestone ATs, Kumho ATs).
