Wanted to share - New shoes

So I have been stalking this forum for a while and some of the post help with my decision so i wanted to share...
I was looking for a new set of tires and planned on replacing my stock "touring" tires in a few months, but a forest service road and a sharp rock made me choose sooner than I wanted. I ended with Nitto Terra Grapplers G2, i had the older version on my F150 and and liked the look and the ride. I was on the fence between a "more road" all terrain vs a more aggressive looking all terrain.
I'm pretty happy with my choice. these are very quiet and i only have about 20 miles on them.

Oh, they are 265/65 18 - 1" larger in diameter than my stock 265/60 18
Everything is stock, 2011 Limited, V8 Hemi with 41k miles.

Looks great & thanks for sharing!
I was speaking with a tire shop rep last week & he recommended the G2's stating they are a quiet tire for an A/T in addition to improved ride quality over the previous Nittos.

Most tires are pretty quiet when they're brand new.

They're good tires - a nice compromise between decent road manners and noise and AT ability.
