    It's time for new tires and was wondering what everyone is running? I've been looking at bfg at k/o's or goodyear duratrac's but am hearing the gy's have sidewall flex on heavier diesel trucks. Anyone have the gy's on a diesel?

    Sidewall flex. :laughing:

    With the height of the rubber on these trucks, they are all going to have sidewall flex. Buy whatever you like and remember that it's a heavy duty truck, not a sports car.

    Thats kind of what I was thinking, never had a issue with side wall flex on any of the other trucks

    The Duratracs are excellent tires. Many here run them with great results. I personally know a guy who loves them as well.
