Yes load range E not too stiff of sidewall for the ride... BUT I do have to use the tire pressure gauge more as I can no longer eyeball them to tell if they are inflated properly... I have had the tires for a year now and like them except that I drive a lot and the tread eats over 1 mpg. On 35,000 miles a year that is a lot...

I am seriously considering these ones for my truck. Wear is kind of a factor with diesels.

Michelin tires came on my 07 2500 4x2 diesel. Almost 70,000 miles and still on the original set. I plan to put on the same thing when time comes for me.

Just an FYI - I found on the Dodge forums that a lot of people have had trouble running the BFG all terrain KO's on 3/4 ton Rams. It seems that they worsen issues with death wobble (somewhat common front end issue on Dodge's). I have no idea why this is, but I found enough negative accounts to keep these from being my next set of tires (which they likely would have been).

I'm currently running the Toyo Open Country M/T's in 295 70 r17 that came on the truck. I have no idea about overall mileage, unfortunately. I'd like to know to help me make a purchase decision next time. They are a more aggressive tread then I would have picked, but I really like them. They have a great load rating and good traction in all conditions so far. A bit of tire noise, but not that noticeable over the diesel noise

I'm still undecided about my next set - I'd like to get something semi-aggressive but as long wearing as possible. Everyone runs the Toyo's around here - one of the big regional tire shops carries them exclusively in this area. Pretty much nothing but good reviews out there on them. I've heard similar things about Nitto M/T's that look really similar with similar specs and are USA made.

That surprises me I have Coopers on both cars a Fusion, and a ZX2 S/R. The Fusion got a little noisy but they needed rotated. The ZX wore a set of Goodyear Eagle GT's in 20,000, after adjustment on those I put on CS4 H-rated. Both are doing well. My new used F150 came with a SUV CS4 tires I hope these are as good. I have never gotten great mileage out of Goodyear tires but the Kelly division of Goodyear has a decent tire, I have used those with good luck.

Anybody running Goodyear wrangler silent armours? They come on sale here with 4 for price of 3 soon and that make them a good deal. I hear they get slippery in the rain about half way thru their wear, which is a big consideration living on the wet coast of Canada. I am probably going to go with these or Bridgestone revo2. Two others I am considering are Hankook ATM rf10 and Toyo open country AT2. I really dislike my BFG rugged trails and they are more than half worn now. I may up size them to 285-70/17.

I've never had issues with my Ford Superduty diesels eating tires, and I am not a big advocate of rotating. The best I ever got was out of Firestone Steelteks, but they arent made anymore. Goodyears have been fair, AT's. My current F250 has Goodyear AT's, and thy look good at 50k, but wet pavement and 10k pulled behind, they loose traction quick.

Im looking at BFG T/A's, the new BFG Rugged Terrains, and the Cooper Discoverer AT3. Im thinking the Coopers are going to win. I need an all-terrain, and I dont want to give up mileage of a hard core off road tread. I' m one of the few who get good mileage out of a stock 6.4L Stroke.

As a past Dodge and current Ford owner I stay with the BFG Rugged Terrains as they offer the best ride and have an E class sidewall. I've been off road to cut firewood, put my boat in way too far a few times and have plowed many snow storms and have NEVER been stuck or dis satisfied with the performance of these tires. I used the BFG All Terrains once and they didn't last 20K miles on the Dodge and it also caused steering box issues that Dodge blamed on the tires exclusively.
