    Default What load range for my 2001 1500 4x4 burb

    I need new tires and when i got my truck 3 yrs ago, it had brand new Dunlop Grandtrek and those tires are SHOT; I mean garbage! A friend of mine told me that I had to put E-load range tires not standard load range. I rarely trailer anything but occasionally I do (at most a 3700lb Camaro and a trailer). I don't drive very much, I only put about 27k on in the three years I've had it.

    Load range C tires will probably do the job, but check the sticker in the door jamb to find out what the factory calls for.

    I think I'm going with Michelin LTX AT2 in the E-load range. I have read several reviews from guys with the same truck/tires and the main complaint was that they wished they had gone with a stronger sidewall version because the standard was mushy feeling.

    I got the Michelins installed on Saturday. These tires are worth the money! I got the LT version and theres a HUGE difference.
