When I needed new tires I wanted something that looked a bit more aggressive than an ordinary street tire that came OEM on my truck. I don't do any off roading and drive on paved streets but it is a truck and I wanted it to look like one. After checking around I decided to get the Cooper ATP tires. They looked a bit more aggressive than I wanted since my truck is 2WD . They ride fine, very smooth at 80 MPH on the interstate. Discount tire made me a deal of $770 OTD. There is a road hazard warranty from Cooper (optional one from Discount Tire for more $$) and DT gives lifetime rotation and balancing with purchase. I got the 265 70 18 size.

Another vote for the Falken Rocky Mountains. Discounts price was much better on those than the Tera Grapplers, even though I really like the Grapplers

I had a set of General Grabber AT2's on my old GMC 2500HD. They lasted forever and seems like they were right about $800 (for E rated tires).

I would buy another set with no reservations...

Ok, I have scoured the interwebs and with you guys tremendous assistance I think I have narrowed it down to the following:
.
Toyo OC AT2- 65000 warranty for $820 OTD- Hamms Tires (local chain)
Cooper AT/3 - 55000 warranty for $839. OTD-Discount, they might come down on these a bit if i try.

I am still open to suggestions and comments.

Eliminated the Hankooks-i just don't like the look.
