Was just at the Tirerack website looking at 285/75R16E tires and for the first time the Goodyear Silent Armor showed up providing yet one more option for the popular 285 tires among us SRW folks here. My list so far for All Terrain tires, I'm sure there are more in the "highway" category but if I wanted a highway tire I'd go with 19.5 wheels/tires.

285/75R16E

2. Nitto DG
3. Nitto MG
4. BFG A/T
5. Goodyear Silent Armor

285/70R17E

1. Nitto TG
2. Nitto DG
3. Toyo Open Country A/T

3750 lbs. Yes, those do sound like good SRW/TC tires.

Good info; added to the TCU Thread.

Toyo also has a 285/75 R16E in the M55 series you could add to the list. I did not care for the ride (speed rated at 81 mph) and they were pretty loud on my previous truck.

Toyo as lso has 2 more to add to the list[emoticon]pen Country AT 285/75 R17E (and yes that 75 is not a typo). The other is the Open Country MT 295/70 R17E.

I wish Goodyear would make the Silent Armor in a 285/70 R17E. They show on their website a 275/70 R18E (3640 lbs.) but they are not making it yet according to my local Goodyear store. That would be a great tire, 33"x11" tire. Anyway just a few more for your list to add.

Happy TC'N,

I Do not want to drift too far off the subject, but does anyone know where I can get reliable advise on deciding what my tire options would be for replacing the LT265/70/R17E factory BFG tires on my 2005 Dodge 2500, with something that would maybe be a little beefier in the sidewall?---My local tire shops claim that there in NOTHING out there except the standard LT radials I already have!---The MAX. Weight single on my tire is 3195 lbs.---I DO NOT exceed this, but just want the best tire to minimize sway etc.
Thanks for any advise----Bill

And another semi close question,

anybody know of a LT265/75-16 LR D tire?
GY offeres 2 LR E's but a D is not listed.

Thanks for adding those additional tire options. I do want to point out that anything bigger than a 285/75R16 or 285/70R17 will not work on a GMC/Chevy 2500HD without some sort of lift kit which is not that popular in the TC world since it raises COG. I just tried 305/70R16E tires (same height as the 285 but wider) and they hit the rear of the wheel well (steel not just plastic) when turning and not even at full lock. Note that I do know guys who run 305/65R17 tires on the 2500HD successfully but they do it with Hummer H2 Wheels which have a 5.5" backspace which is very rare. The 305 in a 17" wheel is not rated very high and neither are the H2 wheels so they're not good candidates for a TC. Ford trucks seem to be able to run the 305/70R16 tires and could likely run those new Toyo 295/70R17E and 285/75R17E tires but I'm guessing they will not fit a 2500HD. Do not know about Dodge but I'm pretty sure they've got big front wheel wells too.

You need to go to a 285/70R17E rated at 3750. The 265 for a 17" rim is rated much lower than a 265 for a 16" rim.

As far as a LRD 265 for a 16" wheel check out the BFG A/T KO. They make one with a 3042 Load rating.

SlideInDad, What wheel are you putting the 285/75R16E tires on? They require a 7.5-9" rim and I've never been able to find such a wheel rated at 3750 lbs. I know Alcoa has a 16" wheel rated at 3750 lbs. but it is only 7" wide.
