What is the ride quality like on the Guard Dogs and which load range tire do you run? The D or E? I contacted them the other day regarding the Kedge Grip and they were super nice and responded quickly through e-mail. I do believe I have found my next tire!

In the size I run, 315/70R17, they only offer a D load. A D-load is perfect for a 1500, but 2500 and bigger will call for the E's. The benefit with the higher load is better tear/cut resistance. Contrary to popular belief, a higher load index DOES NOT increase the truck's towing capacity. The downside is that a stronger tire weighs more, so gas mileage will suffer, and it'll take a little longer to get stopped. Personally, I went from 32" P-rated goodyears to 35" D load Guard Dog's and according to the on board computer I'm averaging about .8 MPG less.

If your a member, Sam's Club fixes tires for free, regardless of where they were purchased. Not sure if you have one close enough, but they are open on Sundays.
