    New ones...HEHEHEHE got to give the wife some poo.... I told her all terrains or Light Truck... But I have not purchased tires for a truck that spends 99.9% of its time on the road but when it hits the dirt I don't want to get stuck.... This truck is 2wd also...

    I've had good luck with Cooper.Kind of a mid-priced tire and I get a lot of miles out of them.

    No other tire out there is better in my opinion. And that is what it is, is opinion. I have had good luck with them, but also like the look of the Toyo's I have seen. Never had a chance to try them yet though.

    I had a set of those years ago. They dry rotted from age before they wore out. Wouldn't hesitate to buy another set.

    I'll vote for the BF Goodrich All Terrains as the truck I just sold had a set and they were great. When the promo tires on my new Silverado are thrown away I'll go with another set of the Goodrich All Terrain tires.

    I would also recommend the toyos. I bought a set for my jeep. They go real good in the mud for an all terrain and they are great on the road too.

    I agree with the Toyo recommendation.

    When I had a Toronoda several years ago, the Toyo tires did very well on a car that was a little hard on tires especially on the front. I drove that car 300,000 miles and Toyos were the only tires it had after the factory ones were replaced. Very satisfying experience. I have also used them on my current truck, a Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x4.

    Another vote going to BFG All Terrain. I got a set for my S-10 last fall. Had no problems going though all the snow we had over christmas.

    My Second choise would be Cooper Discover. Would have like to get those but were a little more money than the BFGs.
