PIRELLI SCORPION VERDE ALL SEASON PLUS II. Love them for performance, comfort, rain, low noise, good wear, etc. All around great street tire.

Terrrain contact HT. I’ve had them for a while, awesome tires. Huge upgrade. Tire rack just tested them against the KumhoHT51 and Firestone LE3, you should check it out.
Gotta ask about the on center feel and the small corrections to keep straight if this occurs with the RL. Also, I have the OEM LE2's and I would say they are bouncy. Less bouncy with the HT's?

Same tires. Transformed the truck’s handling. And handles extremely well in rain. I bomb down our toll roads at 90 mph in the rain and the truck doesn’t move an inch.

I haven't experienced this with my terrain contact h/t's. I have 4000 miles on them, 1400 of those were towing through two mountain passes at max capacity. Tires have been solid and incredible in rain. Whatever tire you get, make sure the place that installs them does road force balancing though.

The first 50 miles or so, I thought they roamed a tiny bit, and I thought they were a little bit noisier than the Firestones. Then they stopped roaming and quieted down to near silence, within a few days of putting them on.

Compared to the LE2s, I'd say the HTs feel more planted, firm, and stable, almost like they feel wider. The LE2s were quiet and smooth, but the HTs just feel more confident to me in all conditions, while being just as quiet and smooth.

They have been tremendous in the rain and sleet specifically. In Maryland we deal with a lot of heavy rain storms, and in wet conditions, these are the best tires I've ever owned. Tirerack confirmed that in their tests, they blew the competition away in that regard. On a shallow note, they also look really nice.

If I was buying tires again tomorrow, I'd buy the HTs again. I've been very happy with them.

Goodyear Wrangler AT Adventure with Kevlar is what I've been running for the last couple months. Awesome tire, ride is very smooth and quieter than the stock Firestones

Since I experimented with 265/60/18 (3% larger) tires I wanted to keep the price down in the event they either rubbed or I didn't like the size change. I went with Hankook's Pathfinder and have been pleasantly surprised. At $139 per tire, couldn't beat them. Oh, and do like the 10.4" footprint. No wandering and much less noise over imperfections.

What size did you put on. Goodyears website says they don't have our stock truck size.

Goodyear does offer the Wrangler Trailrunner AT in our stock size. I am considering these myself. Goodyear has a flash sale running through tomorrow (8/4) giving $75 off a set of 4 along with a rebate of $50 ($100 if you use a Goodyear credit card). Might be worth a look if you are in the market.

Continental will probably have the best overall tires for the price. I don't remember the exact model though.
