How are all you people running 265/75r/16 tires? Every tire i look at is a 8 ply!!! That is way to hard. I really want bfg all terr, but even stock size is 8 ply. Any suggestions for a better tire or a solution?

Well if every tire is an 8-ply, then what is wrong with that? I guess I just don't understand your complaint or question.

So an 8-ply might ride harder. I had a 6-ply BFG A/T KO...

8 ply wont flex as well off-road when air'd down but i dont think it'd ride much harder than a 6 ply. keep the tire are recommened pressure and u 'll be fine. hell if it rides a little harder so what? u are in a truck after all.
