    I think that the tires on a truck can really make or break its look. Especially after a lift kit and other cool things that guys do to try and make their truck cool. Right now i have Adventuro GT Radial's and they look sweet on my 97 ram 1500 with a 2.5 inch level. I would recommend them for looks but they have maybe 10,000 miles and the rears are probably 70% gone. I am afraid that if i get a bad set if tires next it will really kill the look of my truck so i guess i'm asking if any one knows any aggressive looking A/T or M/T tires?

    A guy from another forum is running Goodyear Duratracs on his truck. He got 85,000 miles on them before he replaced them with another set of the same thing.

    Have You been "Rotating" Your tires ? if not then,geterdone. :crush: :mtruck: One rear tire will wear more than the other, sometimes, it is better to switch the rear tires around, until they become even again then, start rotating the fronts to the back.
    I know, they say to not switch tires around like that, so they are rotating in an opposite direction but, I have done exactly that and have had no bad results.

    OH YEAH, look on the sidewall of the tires, if there is a rotational arrow then, the tires will need to be dismounted and, switched so that the directional arrows is pointing in the proper direction, as in, turned around on the wheels then install them on the opposite sides.

    Proper, regular rotations, balancing and pressure checks are the key to tire longevity. Oh and no burnouts. Lol
