I sure like my MITCHLINS if a good highway tire will fit tour needs. ,not so good if you go off road much.

You will get 1001 opinions on brands. I use Pirelli's on my F250 SD with nary a problem.

What's your old tire? How many miles out of them? I had BF Goodrich Rugged Trails stock and got 55K out of them and replaced last year with the same tire. I could have gone more miles with them but decided to replace them prior to our Arizona to Maine trip last year. Have 25K on the new ones and they are just getting broken in.
