My dad has a set of Toyo Open Country H/T's with 106,000 miles on them, and they still have pretty good tread. He's getting new tires next week though.

You could go to tirerack.com and look up reviews on each type of tire. Everyone is going to tell you the tires underneath their truck are the best. I have Toyo MT and Kumho MT and they both are great offroad and show no wear. ****, Mud tires have so much tread they never seem to wear out and they make a lot of noise but i like the noise personally.

Ok thanks for the info, ive had my mt's and ive barley used them so im really looking for a AT this time around i think.

Yes, I have had them off-road. They perform very well. I am much more impressed with them than other AT's I've had. I've had BF Goodrich AT's, Pirelli Scorpion ATR's, Michelin LTX A/T2's, and Hankook Dynapro ATM's. I would say they are on par with the Hankook's, but they only come in load range E in the tire size I wanted. I like the overall design and look of the Falken's better anyway, which are two of the reasons I chose to go with them.

And, you would know that how? 6" lift Skyjacker leafs + 1.5" shackles = 7.5" of lift. The front is about 3/4" lower, by choice.

Just as good, but with much better road manners.

i just think it looks too good for it to be 7in, usually you get a huge amount of distance between the tire and the fender, and the axle sticks out the bottom and sutff like that... just looked too clean, closer to a 4-5 in lift...

Road manners as in dry traction, wet traction, noise level, ride, etc. All of the above is good to great so far. Like I said, I am very impressed. The difference in the noise level and ride is night and day between the MTZ's and these.

so i guess my questions change, are there any M/T's that provide the on-road responsiveness, grip, quiteness and cornering stability that an A/T can? or is there an AT that that provides similar grip off-road traction as tn M/T...
