Between those two, I would go with the Toyo. I just put Open Country II on mine and it was night and day between the Coopers that were on before. The Federal brand is cheaper, but it is also more of a Mud tire. Have heard great reviews of the RTs.

Thanks for the input. I was leading more towards the RT I think, just cuz I'm on paved roads more often than not.

The RT looks like an awesome tire. I am running toyo open country M/T tires and love them. Also on paved roads 80% of the time lol. I am thinking I may go with the RT tires for my next set but undecided yet with them or another MT set.

Those RT's are pretty sweet, but you probably would be happy with either one.

I think they both look aggressive. I may try the RTs to start. If I choose to further lift my truck, I may then go with a MT tire

Found my set up. I'm getting my level put on Thursday and I purchased a set 18x9 197 AE wheels with Toyo RT tires. Here's a pic.
