    Yup thats right, Another tire thread. I need to replace my BFG AT KO's which are completely burnt up after 25,000 miles. Needless to say i'm not going with the BFG's again as they balanced horribly and well they didn't even make it 25,000 miles. Right now i'm leaning towards the LTX AT2. 285/75/16 10 ply let's hear some opinions.

    Good to know as those are on my list, they're also $200 cheaper than my other options.

    I like my cooper st. goodyear has a new snow tire out that looks to be pretty good. I think clapper got some on his chevy. I cant remember the name of them but if you go there site you can check them out. I saw them first hand they look well built and ready for the job.

    If they are the same tires that come factory on gm's then stay away. Terrible in the snow.
    Believe or not I'm using motormaster roughrider's from Canadian Tire.

    I'll chime in with a question on the subject, If I were to go from a stock 16 inch wheel with 265/75/16 tires on my 99 silverado Z71 to a 17 inch wheel with a 275/70/17 tire would there be any rubbing issues I know speedo will be off slightly just worried about clearence. No leveling kit and i have not cranked T-Bars.

    I have read up on some good words for those tires. Hopefully the 2011 we sold comes back for some work one day so I can see how they wear.

    The Michelins are availabe from the factory on 2011's. Anything before uses either the Bridgestone Duravis M773II or M700.

    I have a set on right now and they have 67,000 miles on them. Excellent tires. I have another set on order and I am waiting to put them on just before winter. They will easily go another 10,000 miles. I pull a lot of heavy loads and go in and out of the dump constantly. They are plugged/patched in every tire. Excellent traction in the winter, in the rain and quiet. I'm not a guy who takes his truck in the mud unless he has to but, I've been in the dump pushing mud with the plow frame and pulling a dump trailer that weighs #12000+. So I guess they are good in the mud. You won't be disappointed.
