Tieres will be done by noon. Went 255/70/17. Currently have kuhma solaris k21 that came with it. Bald. Will take a pic and report later. I'm actually in Lincoln working now. Moving back to Omaha and either commuting or maybe working there. Head south on 75 to the auburn/Peru area by the river. Great for mudding. Look up a post of mine along time ago with a video there. I can't on phone

Alright cool and let me know how the fitment is. I might go with those instead of 245/70/17 Duratracs. Thanks for wheeling tip, I'll have to check that out sometime. I also got the same phone too, don't see much of those around! Haha

Ya read in a few threads of people with the a/t3s recommending that size. I will be using my existing stock rims that are black plasti dip. Id like to find a more aggressive looking rim but idk where to look cheap.

Yeah I will be using stock rims and probably plasti dip them also. Later this summer I will probably get some moabs with 1" wheel spacers and paint them gunmetal gray. I'm just gonna keep an eye on craigslist for now.

Thankfully I got them at Sam's club for $185/each installed with lifetime balance/rotation and road hazard.

The tech b*tched because 10ply tires are a pain to patch, but aside from that it's been 20k-ish miles of mixed city/highway/trail-ish driving with NO issues. Even the mechanics comment on how evenly they're wearing when I bring them in for rotation.

Sounds like a good tire! After research I just decided to go with the discoverer a/t3. Will snap a pic when its warmer tomorrow.

Very happy with first impressions of tire.

Love em so far. Images don't do justice....especially on my dirty vehicle.

My old bald hw tires made my car shake and were so loud on interstate. Going 80 with these is night and day, so smooth.

Snow was slush and slick but not thick...I was able to drive without any slipping. On the bald tires I'd slip on Every turn.

So far, impressed

Re: Need new tires

Looks great...any rubbing with 255/70/17? Did you fit a spare?
