    I don't want to sift through everything. Please give me some suggestions for tire replacement. I'm at 55,000 and it's time to replace the original tires. 2.7 access cab, manual. I want something a little bit aggressive but not horrible for mileage. Anything out there that will make it look a little thicker? I really don't want a ton of road noise either. Impossible?

    Thanks ahead of time for any help.

    I've had Firestone Destination A/T's on for 47k miles now. Still have tread left, have worn evenly, ride well, and are quiet. They are a fairly mild A/T with a continuous center rib (read as: quiet) and mileage was not affected at all. They are typically ranked #1 in A/T tires on TireRack.com.

    Having said all that, I'm looking for my next tires, too, lol. I may stick with the Destinations but am considering something a bit more aggressive.

    x2 for the Hankook Dynapro ATMs. I have the 31.5x10.50/R15 and they've taken me through ice, snow, sand, and lots of mud (in a PreRunner). I think they look pretty sweet too!
