Firestone transforce AT. I went up a size to a 235/85/16 on my Chevy 1 ton. They fit in the wheel wells just fine but slowed down my odometer/speedometer a bit. They have been awesome tires

we had 4 komo tires rated E and the tread came off two. never again. goodyears are my prefference but had good luck with firestone. also we have had goosdyear from walmart. they worked good. they are made special by goodear in north carolina for walmart. If you try to cross reference the tire model only walmart comes up. I suspect walmart also has firestone make them special. as usual ya get what ya pay for. good luck ps only get E rated.

Although a set of free Transforce takeoffs severed us well, we just bought 4 B.F.Goodrich Mud terrain T?A's for the back of the 1 ton. Made in the U/S of A. With the limited annual mileage we put on, they should begin to crack before they are worn out.

I've had two sets of Toyo open country m/t's and their the best tire I've ever ran. Their a little pricey but you'll get your money back from them. If your more on the highway than the gravel they make a less aggressive tread that's quieter on the pavement.

4 hours on the road? I would avoid the Goodrich Mud terrains if you are putting that many highway miles on. We just drove our 2WD 1 ton(with new mud terrains) through standing water on black dirt without problems. The Transforce would not even think of doing that.
