I bought my pick-up 4 years ago, and the dealer put on new tires, but he went as cheap as he good so the truck looked reall retard the wheel wells we twice the size of the tires

this is what it looks like now with LT265/75R16 Goodyear Wrangler Authortity's Load Rating E (cause of the 5th wheel plate)

so far i have been extremly inpressed i have gone through stuff in 2 wheel drive i would not have tried in 4 with the ones, they have almost zero road noise, and before my truck was a one wheel wonder but with this it spins them both atleast on gravel, the only thing disappointing is now i am gona get speed tickets because my dreamometer is right, before it read nearly 10 mph faster at 55

feel free to post any comments

Nice tires!
But like you said, you'll have to be careful with the difference on the speedometer not to get a ticket.

sorry dude.. but they are tires. Fuzz busters are a waste of money, my brother writes tickets daily with cars having them in the windshield and I got 2 tickets with one in my windshield before I smarted up and slowed down.

ain't much luck to push isnt much for cops around where i am at, if i am in town people are slow anyways so its hard to speed. and the highways are flat enough i can sight one out quicker then the detector can

now i am not syain i shoot around everywhere at 90, but i cruise over 65 on state highways

Too bad theyre walmart tires, no offense but you shoulda spent the extra 200 and got bfg km2s, if you wanted a good off road tire. But hey better than a/t's!!!!

ya i wasnt to sure about them at first but there good years so that makes up for being walmart tires, and when you stretch this far to pay for a set of tires aint no room to go 200 more

Its not gonna be off that much unless you have like 38 in boggers especially on stock rims.

I put Wrangler Duratracs on my silverado and love those tires. I will def be buying another set. Keep me posted on how you like your tires, my room mate was looking at getting a set of them

I still love them i was just out mudding with it in the field and never even thought about 4 wheel drive, the duratracs were what i was going to get but they couldnt get them for over a week and i need some right away because i had one of my old ones blow out on me

then maybe it is still off because i checked it so many different ways, i used 3 different calculators on the internet, ran it against 2 gps's, ran it door to door with my buddys truck, and did i time test, all came up to around 10 mph off at 55
