Default replacement tires

I am considering swapping out the factory tires after 26,000 miles, any suggestions out there? I am going to stick with the 20 inch rims.

Truck came stock with:

Goodyear Wrangler HP M+S
P275 60 R20
Treadwear 340
Traction A
Temperature B

Truck is town and highway, soccer mom shuffling kids around with a Hemi!

She won't admit it, but likes to put the hammer down and complains about a loose back end in wet conditions.

I would look at a tire with at least a 440 or higher tread wear. I like the Michelin brand for a good truck tire with a good safety record.

Hey thanks folks. I like the Michelin Idea, although I looked up the Hankook Ventus AS RH07 and they have a similar rating 420AA versus the 440AA on the Michelin Latitude Tour HP.

I bought the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo II and now have put about 30K on them, and I luv'em. I like the raised white outline letters and the semi- aggressive tread. They were a little pricey, but have been well worth it so far.

Tirerack has ratings of all tires in this size.
For the money, & by the ratings, I would go with the Generals which are on backorder. Michelin are great but a little pricey.
