Tires for the Dodge Diesel

Iím currently running the Nitto tire
Nitto HD Grappler severe duty Service tire LT285 70 R17 ----------$1923.98 installed
These tires are tough as nails and are the same as the Toyo tire M55


In the equivalent tire as the Nitto
Toyo M55 severe duty ( they do not make the 285 size)
265 70 R17 --------------------- $1573
http://www.offroaders.com/reviewbox/...hp?product=765

So to get the sever duty tire (M55)in a Toyo tire I have to go back down to a stock tire.


Toyo
285/70R17 in a Toyo open cuntry MT -------------$1685 installed
The Toyo open country is a softer compound which means it will wear faster and it does not have the extra sidewall protection




So the decision Iím working on is do I spend the $$ and get the larger severe duty tire Nitto, or save $300 and drop back down to the stock size Toyo.

I put a shitton of weight in my Dodge --- overloaded is standard really. with the weight I carry the Toyo open country will wear faster and does not have the extra layer of protection.

I have the Toyo M55 on my dodge 3500 srw (stock size)

They are a noisy tire. Howling that is quite noticeable....

Beyond that no complaints. May look for something different next time for no other reason than the noise.

Go with what you have on it kev they have worn good
For the mileage you log on it in a month
