    In need of some new tires. I'm driving a Chevy 2500 diesel ans run 285/75r16 I think. I've tried them all.... BFg, kuhmo, cooper, etc. I seem to get better life out of a tire with a little tread to them. So I get the a/t versions.

    Anyone got any recommendations on tire brands and models. This is a truck used mainly for city driving and most always pulling a trailer with 1-2 mowers.

    hankook dynapro ATM, I have them in 325/65/18's and after 43k miles they still have plenty of life. 5-star rated on Discount Tire and come with a 50k mi warranty. Great traction everywhere

    I run 2 sets of rims one for summer and one for winter. the winter ones run a mastercraft courser mt http://mastercrafttires.com/Tires/Light-Truck/Roadmaster-RM185.aspx
    the summer ones run a mastercraft courser ltr

    i have to have a good mud tire for plowing but the good mud tires have a soft rubber to grip better and they wear fast. where as the all seasons still provide decent traction but wear much better on for the summer miles

    I know that the Nitto Terras look cool. haha other than that all I know is that you pretty much get what you pay for in tires. BFG khumo firestone, nitto terra, all make a good tire.

    The Nitto Terra Graplers are a good all around tire except they do not wear that well and they carry no tread wear warranty. As mentioned above take a look at the Hankook ATm RF10 they wear well and carry a 50K tread wear warranty for the money they are tough to beat.
