Lack of options for D load, 6 or 8 ply tires


Recommended Posts

More of a rant, just surprised at the total lack of options for a 33” tire that isn’t SL 4 ply or heavy ass E load tire.   My half ton truck has zero need for an load tire and the heavy unsprung weight that accompanies it, but I want a bit more off road protection and load range than an SL tire, but very few all terrain options in the middle category for either a 275/60r20 stock size.

115 is the stock load rating which is 2679LBS.


Grabber a/TX is a D with a rating of 119 (2998lbs), you would need to call general tire to find out what PSI to run to matain 2679 load rating.

KO2 is the same

Stock tire only weighs 40lbs, even D range KO2 weigh 15 pounds more.

Anytime you go from a P rating (now dropped on newer tires) to an LT you are going to need to get the psi chart from manufacturers. Some make it easy, some don't.

Same here, don’t want the hard LT ride with 45+ psi but would like something a little tougher for mesquite thorns around here. I may try the falken wildpeak at3 in SL rating. Supposedly they have a little tougher sidewall than the p rated Bridgestones I have now according to my local tire shop.

      This is more of a general question rather than specific to these trucks. But my 2020 TrailBoss came with LT275/65 R18 GoodYear DuraTrac tires. I'm considering going to some Bridgestone Dueler Revo AT/3 tires. Costco has the LT rated tires for about $20 more per tire than the P-metric tires. My truck is my daily driver, grocery-getter, school bus, and maybe once a month, I go offroad to my mountain cabin. The most I haul is a couple kayaks to the lake every now and then and occasionally yard waste to the city dump. So considering 99.9% of my driving is in the city/highway and I don't tow anything, would it still make sense to go with the LT tires?

      I've been a big fan of Michelin tires in the past but the LTX A/T's that are on my 2020 2500HD are a bit disappointing.  I've done some towing with a 8k pound trailer, a bunch of highway, and the rest of local driving and at 28,000 miles, these tires are looking that they need to be replaced.
      Can you suggest a mostly highway tire that can get me 40,000 miles??  I'm looking for an all season tire that is acceptable in snow, but that's not my major concern.  I'm running the stock 275-70-18's
       
      Thanks in advance.

      Does anyone know of a kit that will let me lift my truck WITHOUT leveling it? I mostly drive down the highway so I'm not interested in levelling the truck and sending my MPG down the gutter even worse than it already is (I average 16-17 with stock suspension, 275/55/R20 Cooper Discoverer SRX, KN washable engine air filter) but when I go hunting I will sometimes need to cross fallen trees or go over shrubbery that loves to get caught up in the undercarriage. I'm trying to leave the stock rake on the truck but gain an additional inch or two clearance. All the kits I see for lifting the truck also level it. Am I going to have to do the math myself and grab X front suspension kit and Y rear block kit so that both raise approximately the same distance?
       
      Also, if I'm able to get an extra inch of height I wonder what size tire I'd be able to fit then. I like the BFG K02s but wonder if I'd be able to squeeze the 275/65s to fit without cutting or even the 285/65s (only difference between the two is an additional 1/2 inch in diameter).

      Currently running Atturo Trail blade XTs - Nice looking tire, a bit loud and showing signs of what looks like dry rotting after 2 years.
       
      I want to get a new set of all terrains or hybrids but not looking for a mud tire on the stock 22" snowflakes. Leveled and running spacers.
       
      Open Country A/T III is my first choice, followed by the Cooper Discoverer Rugged Trek.
      Size wise, I would go for a 33x12.5x22 or a little smaller (285x45 r22).
       
      Any other options out there I should consider? Please post pics if you have a nice looking A/T tire setup on 22s.

      I bought a set of F150 “FX4 package” AT tires, Hankook Dynapro AT2 RF11 275/60r20, from a local ford dealer. My OE trailrunners that came on my 2020 Elevation X31 are worn to the point I didn’t want to repair a small leak in one.
      the ford dealer said they were 3PMSF rated but it’s not depicted on the side wall. Any one run these tires in the winter? I’m in Alberta, 🇨🇦
