Quote from: Mike Cork on July 27, 2022, 10:21:09 AMBaby needs new shoes... 285/75R70 so they gonna be pricey to start with.Looking at a set of Cooper tires that look good and will save me $100 ($25 a tire) but I can get them at a store that will put a no questions asked warranty for the life of the tire.Or I can go with the Toyo's at the dealership as they are the recommended tire for the truck. It came with Toyo's and I've enjoyed them, good ride, stopping power, great grip on the ramps, and I've exceeded the milage life by 15k but it's time. So I have it in my head why change?Plus didn't Cooper have issues a couple years ago?

Quote from: Hobious on November 17, 2022, 12:35:54 PMi am rolling around on Coopers right now. been fine. i only bought them because the Michelin LTX M/S i had went on backorder for a couple of years. (best tire ever!)
Quote from: Mike Cork on November 17, 2022, 01:28:25 PMI've heard good things about the Michelin LTX

So far after two and a half years, neither tires show much wear at all. the question I have: how many road miles on those tires? (I agree, they run/wear reasonably well...)
Quote from: J.W. on November 18, 2022, 12:41:22 PMToyo makes a good tire, but they are usually very heavy. Not usually a big deal, but when gas/diesel prices are through the roof...I ran Coopers for a while, but that was ages ago. Their line-up has changed since then. They were good tires though.I've been running Goodyear Duratracs for a long time now (like last 9 yrs), really pleased with their wet weather traction and ability to clear mud, which most ATs kind of suck at. They are also fairly light. They do get noisy toward the end of their life though.
Quote from: caddyjoe77 on December 21, 2022, 08:54:52 AMgood thread, thanks for the info -- going to need some new shoes too. Jim, on the brakes -- have the 3.0L duramax which is just awesome for both towing and mileage. Thinking I should upgrade my front brakes at least. Brakes are getting due as well so while I am doing it wanted some opinions. pulling the 21 PHX (mostly across the street) but i do go to other ramps and can definitely feel when the boat is attachd versus not from a braking standpoint. what did you upgrade to?
