I ordered my tires from Walmart yesterday and I will have them tomorrow.

Real Truck told me to give their accounting department up to 7 days to refund my money.

It kills me that they take it soo quickly yet drag their a$$ to return it.

I received two emails from Real Truck after ordering the tires asking if I was still interested in them. Seriously? And emails every day since placing my order on specials that they are running.

Me?? I am running from Real Truck.

GO Walmart!!

They ride like truck tires unlike my Michelins that were smooth as glass and quiet. [emoticon]

I like them only because they will handle more weight and I really like the wheels.

Great combo for me and my truck.

I bought them online from Walmart and they were here in 3 days.

I had Walmart's tire center mount and balance them for me, $51.

I'm happy.

Well they're not smooth and quiet like my Michelins but I knew that when I ordered them.

Looks great! Really dresses up the truck!

Must been too long since I’ve had dedicated pavement pounder tires on a truck, as I thought the last set of Toyo AT3s I had were pretty darn smooth and quiet.
Quieter than the subsequent tires on my trucks in the last year or so being Nitto Terra Graps, Toyo RTs and Duratracs.
I think you’ll like them.

My F350 was so quiet, that I could listen to Opera singing at 60 mph.
Now I drive Sprinter and the tall van is noisily.
It is fraction of the noise comparing to vehicles we had 10 years ago, but comparing to latest dually, it does get annoying.

I actually can't hear them but I can feel them. I'm sure as soon as they get a little worn they'll get noisier.

In the olden days I always ran most aggressive deep lug bias ply tires on my 4-wd truck. People would roll up their windows when I passed them on the freeway. LOL

I looked at a lot of tires, a lot of tires and I'm happy with my choice. So far. [emoticon]
