tires...

alright, when i bought my truck some 5 years ago they guy i purchased from installed rims and tires. tires are federal couragia mt, i have only put 11k miles on the truck since ive owned it. last summer i put 2 new tires on because of broken belts, and now one of the older tires just broke another belt. so im done buying these tires. want to replace all four but dont want to spend over 1g because honestly i dont drive it much, mostly a summer play toy. looking on ebay they have some nice looking tires pretty cheap with good reviews but made in CHINA. even worth the bother https://www.ebay.com/itm/4-New-LT33X...-/332558601396

Just remember you get what you pay for. I personally wouldn't be buying the cheapest types i could find or tires off ebay.

Nokian Rotiiva LT265-70r17 https://www.nokiantires.com/all-seas...an-rotiiva-at/

These are more of an All-Weather tire. I use them Spring thru Fall. $780 for the set installed. (Point S Tire)

Mickey Thompson "Deegan 38" A/T LT285-65r17 https://www.discounttiredirect.com/b...errain/p/34418

I use these for hunting and winter. They are the same height as stock, only wider. Great tire. $800 for the set 4. (a little over $900 installed- Discount Tire)

These are both great tires. The MT's are my favorite. Wide, stable, great off road/wet weather traction. No road noise.

The Rotiiva's are a great as year round road tire. Not the best off road. But they get better fuel economy, and they save wear on my MT's!!

Oops, just realized you have 20's. Good luck finding them under $1000 for a set.

And I would not buy any Chinese made tire. Remember, the only thing between your truck and the road, is your tire. Make it a good one!

Won't work if you want to keep your rims, unless they are 9' wide or less then there are alot of takeoff, tires only on CL as well.

A set of falken wildpeak at3w's from tire discounters cost me right about 1000 after their july 4th or labor day sale a few years back. I imagine they're still close in price and I would highly recommend them, and any name brand tire is going to be much better than an offbrand from china.
