    I have had both the pro-comps and the nittos. Nittos by far. Better traction in rain and snow. About even wear.

    Check out these lugs!

    Here are the ones I run on my GMC 2500 HD, Interco's TRXUS. Here's a link if the pics don't come through. http://www.intercotire.com/html/trxus_mt_sts.htm They walk through deep snow. Check out the side lugs:eek: . Great if you ever go over the edge, turn the wheels and the side lugs go to work to get you out. They are also siped for the rain and ice. 2nd year running these and am very happy with them Last year, the snow never went higher than the lugs, but this year they have been paying off:D . I forget the load range, but each tire will take like 3000# and they come in 6- 10 plys. You can check them out at www.intercotire.com (makers of super swampers). Made in the USA also.:)

    Are te Nitto an allterrain tire?How is the ride quality with these tires?this truck is also my daily driver so I don't want something too aggressive.i was thinking about BFG allterrain but at $160 each they're a bit pricey.thanks for your input Chtrucker.What kind of mileage are you getting with the Nitto's so far,compared to the procomp's which are rated for 50K.

    I got 40k out of them. Like all tires I have run on powerstroke the rears wear faster than the fronts:D

    They are not as aggresive as the BFGs but are better suited to daily driver.

    I sold my truck with the pro comps with only 8k on them. It was a much lighter Jeep. They did not have as much siping or voids that the nittos do.

    The nittos are great because the come in E range. I would not get anything that wasn't after getting c range as stock on my Excursion.
