new tires

Just got my new tires installed, Hankook Dynapro ATM RF10's 285/70/17. These tires are very quiet on the road and drive very well especially considering they are E rated 10 ply.

The tread pattern seems like it will be very good off road as well.

Does the truck bounce any more on the freeway? How is the wet traction. They look like a ton of meat on there. Nice.

The truck doesnt bounce, never really has since I added the truxxx leveling kit, it firmed up the supspension.

Wet traction on pavement is awesome, it came a pretty good rainstorm last night and I stuck like glue to the pavement.

had discount match their discounttiredirect.com price of $157 a piece. I ended up getting $25 bucks back prorata per tire on the Nitto's, total price with lifetime balance and rotating and with metal stems, $640. Can't beat it for the quality of tire.
