    Toyos on both trucks. Funny that the Dodge I bought used came with them! Can't afford michelens but I feel that the Toyos are the next best thing.

    twj721, I just noticed that we both share the same join month/year! You just need to step up the posting a bit... lol

    BFGoodrich A/T KO's, LOVE THEM. Great wear, excellent on and offroad traction, awesome in snow. Not that great in rain, and the tread pattern is a little old, but obviously still superior to most patterns. Steer clear of GoodYear light truck tires, JUNK.

    how you like them?...personally i hated them on my truck. I just put on a pair of BFGoodrich all terrain TA's and i hardly use 4 wheel drive anymore...i've climbed muddy hills in 4 HI that my old timberlines wouldnt even allow me to approach.
