.. my money will go on TOYO OPEN COUNTRY AT .... these are an excellent tire.. long wearing, relatively quiet (for a good AT tire)... good in a large range of road and off-road conditions
.. Mine are 1 1/2 years old now and I have no regrets ... looking forward to driving on these for a long time yet.
.. your original tires on that truck are likely 245/75R16 ... unless you had a larger tire size upgrade..
.. lots of debate on this forum about increase tire size and wheel rim diameter etc... but if you are looking to stay at stock or close you could get the 245's or even one size larger at 265/75R16
.. again lots of debate on tire load rating.... but I firmly believe that when you have a truck (particularly a 3/4T) you need to have truck tires (LT load ratings...) these are very stable tires for the times you haul a trailer or a heavy load
.. anyone that has reported here that they have had low mile life out of a TOYO AT, has been using the P-rated tires (and probably the wrong tire pressure) when they likely should have had LT-rated (D - 8ply) or (E - 10 ply) tires for the way they use their truck
.. whatever you get, do not go below the tire size and load rating recommended on your truck door post sticker... (or also in your users manual...)
.. good luck on these and let us know what you get.....

I'm done with the Mastercraft C/T's I have. They are too big a pain to keep balanced. They do provide excellent traction and wear well but I'm tired of having to balance at every tire rotation.

I'm going to give the Hankook Dynapro ATM RF10's a shot this month or next. I've only read go things about them in online reviews.

I highly recommend the Hankook Dynapro ATM's. I put them on my '07.5 3500HD 4x4 in Oct. '08. So far I put 26,000 miles on them, they have worn but not much. They ride nice, are quiet, and have GREAT traction. I am very happy with them especially for snowplowing. I was looking at Michelin and BFG, and the Hankooks were $50 cheaper per tire. I will buy them again next time.

Just to mention I have 285/75/16 BF Goodrich ATs load range D on my truck now but those tires are too expensive and I have heard they don't last on these heavy trucks.
Who told you that??? They are known to normally run anywhere from 50-90k miles if rotated properly, BF Goodrich tires cost more for a reason, MADE IN THE USA is one of them plus their traction is outstanding. I have spent some time in the tire shops recently and saw some unhappy hankook customers with worn out tires and i would not put anything with the word TOY on my truck.

Said it a 100 times now, and I'll say it again. There may be better tires (not by much) but, for the price ($140 for 285's), warranty (60k), performance, and looks, its hard to beat the General Grabber AT2. I love mine, and I love that they're made in the USA.
