They're not 6 ply -- they're 6 ply RATED. Not the same thing. Their actual sidewall plies are likely 2.

think about this: most LT 265's are about $125-$150 each. if they are selling the same size tire at $350 for 4 tires, thats around $87. now, i don't know if these tires are good or bad, but sometimes a cheap price means a cheap tire. unless you find a good, well know tire on sale. if i were you, i'd shop around. it's better to spend a little more for a good, quality tire than skimp and "pay the price" so to speak.

personally i dont think tires are a place to cheap out...they are the only contact you have with the road, and with a no-name tire i'd be scared of going over 60 on them. A blow out could be devastating to you and your truck.
