I sold my HP's to my supervisor for $500 with only 700 on them. I went with BridgeStone Dueler Revo2's 275/60/20 for $950 installed after the $100 mail in rebate. Had these on my Titan and simply fell in love with them.

They're great tires you can't go wrong with them. your price sounds good I paid 1500 and they kept they wranglers, they're junk anyway for Canadian winters lol. I think they look great on the truck, here's a sneak peak what your truck will look like
Really like your truck with that color combo and just enough chrome
Are yours 285's as well?
Also what kind of tonneau cover you have there?

I am going with Goodyear Duratrac's, they seem to be one of the highest rated A/T's and outperform the BFG's in snow (my main concern) plus they are about $300 per set cheaper than the BFG's (in 325/60/20).

I will never own a set of good years again
I haven't have a good experience with them yet

I checked ebay out and could only find them for $1400can shipping included but then I also have to worry about taxes, duty and junk like that....And then on top of that I have to pay an extra $30-$40 per tire to get installed and balanced so I would not have saved anything in the end...Thats why I purchased local all in

I do like the tread on the Duratrac...Post up some pics when you get them

The problem is that everyone talks crap about goodyears, yet their only experience is with the crap factory tires. The HP's suck but guess what? They are a $700 set of tires... The SR-A's on my fiance's jeep libery sucked... Again $500 set of tires.

The silent armor's are a great tire, fortera triple treads are amazing, and I am yet to read a bad review about the duratracs. I'm just pointing out that far to many people make the comparison between the horrible mass porduced economy tires for gas mileage to the rest of the line-up. Sort of like comparing an Intrepid to a Viper.

I misread your size, the cheapest I found them was $1277 to your door - for some reason I read the factory size. I'll be sure to post pics, its just going to be a while because I will likely be putting them on with a 4" lift as well.

Enjoy your new tires, the BFG's are one of te best A/T's out there!

I would say 295/65/20 would be as big as I would go with a leveling kit
You might be able to do 285/65/20 without a leveling kit.....

I have a leveling kit, and I just went with 285/65/20 to be safe

I plan on 18" Dick Cepek wheels and 305 or 315/70 or 65/18 tires in the spring and run stock 20's and my BFG's in the winter

Thanks for the compliment Ramathorne. Its a Bak-Flip tonneau, I like it because of the high praise the company has recieved on this site and it fits between the box sides not on top and each fold has a latch so once your tailgate is locked your box is secure.My next purchase is a remote tailgate lock! Tonneaus4less on ebay $665 three days to deliver. I think you did the right thing buying your tires local, get a road hazard warranty and if you have any problems you have someplace to go for help

What size are your BFG's Crash?
Also, thanks for the pics of the cover and when you ordered from ebay, did you have any COD charges?
Some people can order stuff from the US and rarely get hit with duty, brokerage and taxes....
But everytime I do it, I get nailed haha
Just thinking if little local diff it price, maybe I should shop around NS for dealers?
