    I am looking at replaceing my tires and need a little help decideing. I am looking to spend no more then say $140.00 a tire. Here are a couple tires that look good to me please give me your opinuons. 95% of my driving is on road but I want a tire that looks like a truck tire not a car tire. Thanks

    1.) General (Grabber AT2) 265/70R16
    2.) Firestone (Destination AT) 265/70R16
    3.) General (Grabber HTS) 265/70R16

    Based on this, I'd say the General Grabber AT2's.

    I had the at2's. They're good, but on national backorder.
    I got the firestones now, since I couldn't wait. The only big differance between the two is the firestone has no rim guard.
    Wait for the at2's if you can.

    I just went up to the max without a lift 265/75/16. They look great with white letters in on my black trim silver Mica 4x4 access cab. Lifts the truck a bit and really fills the wheel wells out with no rubbing at all. I also had the TSB suspension replacement done a couple years ago and that raised the truck a bit to. Topped it off with a front end allignment for good measure and I love these Destinations. I got Ps cause I don't tow much and there are no rocks offroad here, so it saved a little cash and makes for better economy and ride. Destination ATs :thumbsup:

    wait for the generals. My brother has them on his jeep and has already put 40k on them with over 60% tread left. I know you wont believe me but it is the truth. They are a little noisy compared to some other at's but I dont think its bad enough for anyone to really complain. Great wet traction plus they clean out good. Definitely wait :D
