Sydways, thats the exact tire I put on all my trucks, the 2002 Duramax just got the 285 75-r-16 AT Im good for at least 35k with my application, and they look just as good as the big names at 2/3 the cost.

Obnoxus,

You cannot go wrong with BFG All Terrain KOs. I am going to try Cooper I think, just because I like to be different. Aside from the stickershock, the BFG is awesome.

If you want the best offroad/load range tire, check out Interco's TRXUS Mud terrains (also known as Super Swamper Trxus)
They are availible in load range D and keep up the super swamper reputation off-road.

Real world: A buddy put them on his 1/2 ton Z71 and after 10k miles, he still loves em! He got them at a great price (about 30 bucks a tire less than the BFG's)

If you want a real truck tire, This is it!!

Those Goodyears were E rated, and the problem with the awful handling was the tall lugs, and non-interlocking lugs. Sorry, those Interco's look mighty scary to me for handling, especially towing significant weight.

Here are the BFG All Terrain KO's. Mighty fine tire!

SAME HERE !!!! scary handling on th GY RT/S,,, I has Firestone Steltex,,, but the rs5 or whatever it was,,,,,terrible traction,,, TIRERACKS website calls this " a great fronttire for dually applicatins " !!!!!!! GOOD JOB GM !!!!! ,,, not the A/T tire,,, I would go with that one if I go back to Firestone,,, I am kinda leaning toward the Michelin M/S right now,,,, like I said at this point I dont care about cost or treat life, I want stable handling

I also dont need the offroad aggressivness,,,,,,I barely take it out in the snow, It maily sleeps with the boat all winter !!!!!
