Looking for recommendations between the following tires. I am not happy with the duratracs as they are getting louder by the day (17k mileage) and looking to replace them. Due to this I am looking for a good AT tire that will have better road manners as most of my driving is city/highway. I do go up to the mountains so looking to maintain an AT tire. I was wondering if anyone can give me some insight on the following tires and which one is the quietest of the bunch. I am looking at the following four tires, BFG KO2, Nitto G2, Cooper AT3, Falken AT3W. Anyone have experience with any of these?

I have run Nitto G2 and Cooper AT3s on previous trucks. I doubt you will be disappointed in either. The BFGs and Falkens also get good reviews
 
I just put some BFG K02 35x12x18 on my TB this weekend and the difference in road noise is night and day, The BFGs are so quiet. The other tire I considered was the Falken Wildpeak 295/70/18 but local availability and not willing to wait forced be to go BFG. Super happy with them. :)

Did you lift/trim? And If so what lift?

I haven’t trimmed yet but might do a little trimming of the inner mud flap If I don’t end up lifiting it.

Nice! Holla with what you end up doing. I'm contemplating the same set up!

I am on the fence of goin SST or a true 6” lift but still unsure. I ran into a guy who was running the same BGF with the SST kit and no spacers which convinced me to get the BFG last week. I ordered the SST kit but haven’t picked it up as i debate on what to do.

The week before that i saw a TB with a 6” lift and the want was bad.

At the moment i think i wont take any action as far as trimming as i think it may only be an issue in a hard/tight parking situation. I will likely wait until i install a kit before i cut anything.
 
I can highly recommend Michelin Defender 2 and Pirelli P7 AS Plus 3 as great silent tire options here. Probably the best tires i ever had in my life. Got them after recommendation of corwheels and definitely wasn't disappointed. Michelin is a leading tire brand for many years now as the quality of their products is very high.

The Bridgestone Dueler RSW is a fantastic tire and comes on certain Silverado packages. It is a very quiet AT tire with excellent road manners, a tire for primarily highway use with the occasional off road use.
 
Just bought 265/60R20 BFG KO2s.
Factory size tires.
Didn't care much for the factory off road tires.
I drive long distance and several types of terrain.
Wanted to keep the same fuel economy.
Also needed an all around tire for mud, dirt, sand, snow, and slight off roading.
I have over 20 yrs experience with BFGs.

edit: $1900 for 4 tires

Has anyone found an alternative to the 20" rims? I keep scuffing mine. 😔
I would love to get my hands on some stock 18" rims! 👍

you will slowly see in various pics through my years of vehicles...all of them have TOYO brand tires. they may be slightly more in price, but they have all ways lasted and been excellent tires.
 
I have Toyo Open Country lll 295/70-18. No regrets at all. Good on and off road. Smooth and quiet on the freeway. Excellent snow traction.
A set of tires is almost $2K total these days so choose wisely 👍

Did you program your computer for the bigger tires?

I’ve been running. 295/70/18 nittos ridge grapplers .. about 25K mile just ordered reliable Baja proven K02’s BFG’s 35/12.50:18’s …: will get installed tomorrow.:: just needed a real world tire .. looks be damed..: cannot buy tires just for looks alone, street performance required as well… let’s be real most of us use our rigs for daily commutes with the occasional weekend adventures… 😎
 
I just did the exact same thing was running 295/70/18 ridge grapplers for about 2 years and they are not good during wet road conditions.. initially they were but they a became so stiff with more that half tread remaining … so I just had some Bfg KO2’s 35/12.50/18’s installed today .. wow what a nice ride … I’m running Bilstiens 5100’s and the ride got even better! And they are aggressive looking as well very clean classic look,.. proven tire as you mentioned.
