The tires on a Chevy Trail Boss so not sure how they’d look BUT. They’ve been great tires tread wise just not noise wise.

I agree. I've had good luck with the off brands. Make sure it's LT with appropriate weight rating but otherwise never had an issue. Got 30k miles on the current set of...I think the brand is Corso...shows hardly any tread wear.

If you are taking your big truck mudbogging, I might think different but big trucks suitable for towing tend to be lousy off road anyway.

I'm not the only, but I've been disappointed generally speaking when I've bought Michelin! Only ones I've bought worth it from them, is an XDE M+S in a 225-70-19.5 LR G for my drive axle on Navistar.

Otherwise, as someone said, black sidewalls that are round, appropriate tread and load capacity for driving I'm doing is that vehicle

I am happy with my Falken wildpeaks A/T3W tires they are quiet and have great traction. I had the Michelin LTX A/T2 tires on my truck and I hated them. They work great if you never get off the pavement.
