    Default Tire suggestions

    I have a 2006 TB 4x4. I have many things to do to this truck one of them right now are tires. I want an A/T tire. I went to Tire rack .com and other forums to check out what reviews would be on the tires. I like four tires and cant make up my mind #1 GY Wrangler Dura Trac's the only thing I'm not sure about is the size availability my tire is 245/65R17 the only size i can get is 245/70R17 will this be a problem? #2 GY Wrangler Silent Armor but I saw a couple reviews with the same problem which is if these tires sit for a couple of days they get a wobble til warmed up.#3 BFG A/T #4 Bridgestone Revo's.. Personally I really like The first two I mentioned. The Dura Trac is a bad mofo lookin tire though. I drive four days a week about 30 miles total and I do some off-roading but carefull right now until all mods are done which will take a lot of time I'm poor..Any help would be greatly appreciated. I keep going back and forth.ahhh:out:

    I loved my Revo's on & offroad, I always stayed away from Good year but have not used in 10+ years. Always had good luck with BFG A/T but the Revos handle better on dry pavement. Using Hankook A/t now & love them.

    I have heard excellent things about the BfGoodrich all-terrains. They are quiet, excellent performing in many off-road conditions, last long, and have good road manners. If I was to llift my truck they would be my first choice.

    I run the silent armors and never had a problem only bad thing i could find is when its extremely cold the tire freezes and makes a light thumping sound for a couple min, never heard of the wobble tho and i work for a goodyear dealer and seen many sets come through

    the duratrac is one bad ass tire, the silent armor will give you better ice traction but the duratrac will give you better dirt and snow traction either way i vote for goodyear but im a little bias
