So sometime in June I will be buying new tires for my truck. What would you guys recommend? I don't tow and I don't haul anything that is much over 1000lbs. I also don't do any off-roading either.

I do around 30,000+ KM's a year so would like one that will give me 3-4 years. Would need a tire that is mountain snowflake rated, but which doesn't have a lot of road noise. Right now I am running 235/85r16's. Should I stay with this size or go to something else; 245/75r16 or 265/75r16??

I came across this tire and was wondering if anyone had run it. Goodyear Wrangler Territory | Canadian Tire

If tread pattern doesnt matter i would go with michelin M+S they are a good tire and they last a long time. had them on mine before my MT's got good 60,000 out of them. I ran 265/75/R16

due to the weight of these trucks you better get a load range E tire if you want to come close to 3-4 years,maybe possibly if you only drive 15k miles a year

Still 3-4 years is a LOONG time and most likely will not happen lol but agreed E load range i s the best way to go anyways if you do tow

K, so load road E is the way to go then. Right now I run 50PSI front and back which I am guessing is okay. Now which size would you recommend? I am running the stock 16" GM rims still. I don't do any towing and very little hauling.

TOYO Open Country

I have a custome that does wide load escorts up and down the eastern coast yearround and she runs the Open country HT's on her expedition and has had 2 sets so far and got 68000 miles on the first set and has 55000=/- on her second set. She loves them. Not a terribly aggressive tread but it does the trick.
