    I am looking at 4 possibilities.
    Goodyear MTR Kevlar 265 70 17
    Goodyear MTR Kevlar 275 70 17 americas tire says this will fit without rubbing.
    Toyo MT 265 70 17
    BFG MT KM2 265 70 17

    I almost did the Goodyear but i am not sure about the looks of the sidewall!

    Given any thought to the Firestone Destination M/T's? It's a good looking tire. Highest rating in its category through tirerack.

    Can't speak for the other tires on the list but I loved the set of Toyo M/T's I had.

    My dad has these, they are a good tire, good tread pattern, hes had them for a year now and they have a pretty good wear. Also they are VERY quiet for a MT tire on the highway, supprised the hell out of me.

    I like those Duratracs though I don't have them (yet). I'd have to see more reviews to be sure, though.
