    For a cool tred pattern go with BFGoidricg gForce TA KDW2's. I have them on my truck now. I'll get you a picture.

    These are my 285's.

    Hankook Ventus ST.

    They're relatively cheap, grip like a mf'er when you get them warmed up and last a LONG time.

    On mine. 275/60/17

    And Ian's (Show&Go) Intimidator. Stock size I'm assuming

    Great tires for sure. My buddy has those on his Ford and I have the next model up on my SSS and we both love them. Mine are the RH07 and those are the RH06. I got the 07 so I could rotate them and so far they are the best tire I've ever owned.

    I have Hankook's A/T's on my 2500HD with 30,000 miles and they still look great so I bed their street tire wear good too.

    Yokohama Prada Spec-X 285/50/20 FTW. Check out the reviews on these. I have these on my truck and they ride like a Cadillac.
