Thinking about 6 Geolandar M/T G003

https://www.tirerack.com/tires/yokoh...hama-tires.jsp
i put 255 80 17 toyo at 2 on my dually...i did not trust the nexan tire with street tread on them for towing out in the desert. they are 33x10x17 and clear the duals fine but are 1.5 in taller and look good on the truck and fill the wheel wells with out losing ccc.

so far we tow heavy at 20k and then rear look like I'll get around 35 to 45 l miles out of them...truck has 12k on it now and i can see wear....but my truck is either pulling a 3k trailer, a 16k trailer, or a 21k trailer...

after seeing my dodge, my buddy put them on his Chevy dually...no tread squirm either. no issues off road towing out into the desert, and work well in the rain.

i have run these tire in the snow in other trucks and liked them better than bfg tires..

So far those are the best I’ve tried. I’m buying a set of at3’s this spring for my 2018 2500, keeping the oem wheels for studs.

I have no experience with the ATP but I do with the AT3s, had a set on mt DD 2003 Grand Cherokee and my 05 Dodge dually. Both of the these had the Cooper ATR so when they need new tires they got the AT3s. At first I liked them but that changed after they wore a bit, both sets chopped where the ATRs did not and at about 1/2 tread they got loud and wet and snow performance when to shit. I was/am a big Cooper fan and between all my vehicles ran 8 sets of different tires from STTs to high performance car tires. I just don't like the AT3s.

Maybe you'll have better luck than I did with them.

Gotta rotate the shit out of them. Every oil change no matter what. No clue about the snow stuff- we don't get that here.

I did/due rotate the shit out of my tires and stay on top of psi including adjusting for light vs heavy loads. I got 63,000 miles out of my last set Copper ATRs on my Dodge and 62,000 on the Jeep. The AT3s on the Jeep got replaced at 44,000 miles with tread left but the snow performance was shit, the ones on the Dodge got replaced at 49,000 and 4 were at 2/32 and two were at 3/32.

I had two buddies have poor performance out of the AT3s as well, one on a GM 2500 the other on an Excursion.

I run the Toyo Open Country C/T's and I love them. I had the Toyo A/T extremes before and these are hands down better for me. The AT's were terrible on wet roads and dirt roads. So far I have about 3500 miles on them

I havent seen those yet, but they look awesome, esp the real life pics, not the computer models...

anyone else tried the gladiator qr900 ? i put a set on my cummins and liked them so much that turned around and put some on my f150. some noise but not as much as the average mud tire and been great in the rain. only have about 20,000 mi on them so far but have wore perfectly even and will possibly go that much more.

Yeah I got them. Seems to work fine, drive pretty straight and not a ton of noise. Ice they aren't super great but I've been meaning to have the local shop sipe them up.

Was impressed with the lack on wandering when I had the fat 15.5" tires on.

What vehicle? May have missed that. How many miles do you think you will get out of them?

07 Duramax, Solid Axle. Original tires were 40x15.5-20, replaced with 38x13.5-18.

Unsure, it's been sitting for a few weeks due to the cold streak we are having. I'll try to check the mileage and tread left on the in the next few days.

I just ordered some pro comp 35x12.50/18 , on sale at $900 a set. Hopefully they will be decent for summer tires ( I run studs in winter). I was going to do a set of copper AT# XLT's, but the pro comp had decent reviews and the price was really good for a 35".

Anyone running the Yokohama Geolander MTs on their tow pig? My cooper STT pros are about done and discount wont mount a 12.5 tire on my '14 Ram 2500s stock 18" wheels (even though they have mounted the same fucking tires a few years before).

I just ordered another set of Toyo AT2's for my F-350 CC 4X4 PSD. 285/75/18 - these have 52K miles and some change now behind them and are a bit past due. This will be my 6th set of the Toyo AT/AT2's and I seem to squeeze around 50 K out of them. Super happy with this tire.

I got 30k out of Toyo AT2's 285/75/18 on my ram 3500, good highway tire but they wore quickly hauling heavy and sucked on ice. I also got flats like no tomorrow with them.

This doesn’t help with your specific tire question. I had the same problem with Discount (factory GM wheel width). Call or go to NTB, they don’t have a problem with narrower wheel widths.

yeah, they pissed me off. Discount called me and recommended that i go with a 315 Toyo mt. That equates to a 12.4" wide tire. They would totally mount that tire on my stock wheels, but not a tire that is 12.5". Such bullshit. Its all CYA for them, so i get it. Still BS though.

I ordered a set of the same 35x12.5r18 toyo Mts on EBAY and used the promo code they had last week and got them even $100 cheaper than on Amazon. I have a shop down the street from my house that will mount and balance them without issue.

Has anyone ran treadwrights as a dually tire?

Need to buy new tires for my 04 F550 and had previously decided on Michelin XDS2s in a 245/70r19.5 flavor. Cost has deterred me thus far, and stumbled on treadwrights in the same size. My F550 is 2WD pavement pounder, so I don't need a mud tire, but the treadwright 19.5 only comes in the "old school MTR" pattern.

https://www.treadwright.com/collecti...75-r19-5-16ply

What are y'all opinion running these as drive tires on my dually, with regular steers up front? Stupid idea or worth a shot? I can buy almost three of the treadwright guard dogs for the cost of a single XDS2 in this size.
