    It is about time to replace my tires and I would like some recommendations. I want to stay with the stock size 315/70R17 and my truck is driven on the street 90% of the time so I would like something that will last but will perform well off road as well. Thank you in advance for your input.

    Moto531, how many miles did you get on your original set?

    I have 31K on my OEM set but could probably go another 15K on them but I like fresh meat.

    Some advice....don't get tires with an "E" Load rating...common mistake and some tires in popular sizes only come in one load rating. That extra load rating is wasted and just makes the truck ride rougher and if needed to air down the suck at that compared to a "C" rated tire...

    I only have 7,xxx miles on my K02's, but they appear to be wearing very well. I am happy with how they performed. Current plan is to get another set of k02's when the time comes.

    Cooper ST Maxx will be my choice. Toyo and Nitto way too heavy.

    Does anyone happen to know if the 37x12.50 version of the KO2 will rub horribly since it's not a true 37" tire? It's a good bit less meaty than a lot of the 37s people run like Toyos or Nittos. I like the KO2 but the 35s start to look a little "small" once you have some ride height added.
