Bridgestone Dueler A/T

I got a set of 285 75R 16's on my Chevy 1500HD and love the look and quietness.

The BFG A/T KO is a superior tire. I had them on my Tahoe, and nearly went with them on my AV 2500. Now that I have the Coopers on my truck, I do believe the Coopers are every bit what the BFGs are, AND they are quieter. Top that off with they are considerably cheaper, and MUCH easier to get your hands on.

ROUX; I can sell you the MTR or the KO , and maybe save you a little Money!

315/75R16 B.F.G. A/T KO D-ply , R.W.L. = $159.84
G.Y. Wrangler MTR D-Ply O.W.L. = 169.00

It would also be 10 to 12 dollars a tire for Freight!!! Check it out with your Local, I might can save you a little Dough!!

Looking for a taller (33" to 35"), relatively quiet tire, for highway towing (9000 lb.), and some occasional tough off-road.
Any suggestions?
I'm getting ready to replace the tires on my 01 F250 which currently are 35/12.5R16.5 BFG M/T. I have been thinking of going with the BFG A/T which I think I can get for around $177ea. I did lift the truck 5 1/2" though for the 35" tires (just something to think about if your looking at larger tires)
