Best street tires for stock size 14" wheels?

I have a B4000 that I'm going to be keeping stock. What tires would you guys recommend for strictly street use? I'd like a tire that has a little less sidewall flex than cheap all seasons.

I agree, I have them now and many people I know had or have them, they are great in the snow, they are quiet, evenly wearing, and last very long.

Thanks for the help guys...I looked at the Michelins but they don't make the tire in a 14" in the right size. For the guys with Radial TAs...its ok to use car tires on trucks? Is there any downside to getting car tires?

I ran the radial TA's on my old truck and never had a problem. I really liked how the handled, and they stuck to the ground well.

As far as a strong sidewall i know alot of people that love the Silent Armor's, but i don't remember who makes those, goodyear maybe?
