Saw these at Sam's yesterday and seemed to be a pretty good price, $93 for 245/75/16. Anyone have any experience with these?

Also..besides looks is there any reason I would want to put a 265 on my truck rather than a 245? Dodge 2500 V10,2wd, 3.55 gears

The 265 tire usually has a higher weight carrying capacity. The 265's are good to about 3400 lbs, which is the highest you can get in an E range tire (or so I've found to date..)

They are good tires. I have a set on a sub that has gone 55k and still running true. Looks like I could run another 10-15K. Make sure they are 8 or 10 ply tires for you Dodge.

I put them on my chevy dually, but sold it pretty soon after.

Have them on the front of the dodge now and will be putting them on the rear soon, too. Haven't found any reason not to like them yet.

The reports I read said they sucked in anything remotely slippery..

I'd be VERY interested in them if they are decent all-season tires!

I've got a set on my dd ranger in the appropriate 235/75/15 size. and I'll go with eskimo about them being notorious to slide when wet. When it's fresh rain they are extremely slippery. I can't complain too much about them as I got them for free with a set of rims.
