    My Bridgestone Duelers that came on my truck aren't too bad i kinda like them, i dont go offroad with my truck though, just a LOT of highway miles. I think I 'm going with these next though....Michelin LTX M/S2, they got great reviews!

    oK,been driving my Toyo A/T II,LT245/75R16 my truck is a 4 Banger 4:10 ratio.An I'm not happy with them,should have gone with "P" series.The tires feel real heavy and the truck just doesn't seem to want to move them.Looks like it's going to be Goodyear Wrangler for me.

    Update
    I have had these on 11k miles now. They dont show any real wear and are still smooth. They do real well on icy/hardpacked snowy roads. Deep powder they do ok in, and they clean out decent in the mud. If right now I had to buy another set, I'm not against these tires, but not 100% for them either. As the truck is transforming into less of a daily driver it might get MTs next time around. But we'll see where I am at when they finally wear out. Now pics!!

    Going to the dealer on Wed. to have the front end check,but I'm sure there coming off.I think they are much too heavy for this rig.

    One of the reasons I say we don't need LT's on Taco's and 4runners. Just more noticeable on your 4cyl, but same basic effects on all. Bouncier ride too...

    Unless someone realllllly off roads... Or realllllly needs that extra stiffness in towing that they "claim" you can't get in the P rated.

    P rated are all that we need in these trucks. I'm sure someone will chime in and disagree... And frankly, to each their own anyway though!

    The ride is smooth,I was very surprise on the ride.I contacted Toyo on there 30 day trial period,no word yet.Not expecting much from the dealer,in way of help.

    Well,took the truck back to the dealer.An had them recheck the alignment.Guess what,the truck drives lighter and the steering is not pulling to the left.Some how the first alignment fell apart??,but they corrected it.Still not sure on the tires though.

    Doesn't take much to knock the alignment out of whack. Hit a good pothole in the road or go offraoding and there it goes. Lifetime alignment is a wise investment if keeping your truck for awhile

    It was bad the minute I left the dealer,as in there was no alignment done or the tech didn't know what he was doing.

    Back to life...

    Can someone explain to me why the LT has a lower weight rating than the P?

    All the places I have checked in 265/75 16 the LT is rated at 2460lbs and the P is 2601lbs
