    First post here just wanted to share some pics of my new Goodyear Wranglers Ultraterrains. 265/75/16. I chose to go with the SL rating instead of the E rating because the e rated tires were 10lbs heavier and was thinking about gas mileage. The rubber is extremely soft/pliable which I'm sure they will do well in the winter but not too sure how they will do in the summer. I picked these up at discount tire direct for about $490 after all of the rebates. Discount had a $100 off flash sale plus $60 good year mail in rebate and my discount credit card gave me another $40 mail in rebate so not too bad. I only have about 500 miles on them and they seem somewhat squishy? I think its due to the sidewalls but now Im kind of thinking I should have went for the E rated tires. Unfortunately no mileage warranty on the tires so only time will tell.:fingerscrossed:

    Always liked the Gen 1s. Don't know much about this particular tire. Just be aware of mild chunking and sidewall damage in the rock laden parts of Colorado. Keep em rotated, balanced, and properly inflated. Your truck is relatively light. Should be great. I'm looking at BFG or alternatives soon on my 16

    Oh and welcome aboard!

    These tires are interesting, in person they look super meaty!

    New tires are always a bit squirmy. It'll go away most likely.

    I am already in the preplanning stages of buying new tires for the Tundra since the BFGs only have about 1 hunting season left on them. It seems like no matter how much I read about Ridge Grapplers and the KO2s I always seem to take a second or third look at the UltraTerrains. They have decent reviews, they're cheaper, they got the snowflake rating, E rated, and are fairly light compared to the others in the sizes I'm looking at. Thanks for posting up on them and I hope to hear more from you on their performance over the winter.

    Thanks for the greetings. LOL squirmy is the word I was looking for, I never really felt that in truck tires or tires in general before. I'll definetaly try more air pressure as suggested and see how that works there at 38psi now. To Medic343 my first choice would have been the General Grabbers AT2 but they weren't on the $100 off flash sale nor did they have any rebates and in my size they weren't snowflake rated.. They are on my ranger snowflake rated with about 30,000 miles on them and still have at least 3/4 of tread left. Absolutely love them.

    For some reason a lot of the Goodyear tires are like that. Real squishy.
    Only complaint I heard was a squishy feeling on an F250 and a Ram 1500. I’ve been out of work for 4 months now though.
    Bump up the tire pressure by 5 or so without going to the max.

    I'd also note that unless you'll be airing down and really roughing up the sidewalls, E-rated tires are overkill. I have e-rated KO2s that came on the truck when I got it and they are overkill for sure...heavier and more difficult to balance, and since I have a monster double cab I won't be doing any hardcore wheeling. I had C-rated KO2s on my old T100 and they were fantastic. My next set will probably be P- or C-rated at the max.

    I am in the same boat here. BFGs would make it beyond the 2020 season if I stay on the hwy. Not sure about ranch roads. Looking at the Goodyears. Dude at Discount prefers over the KO2s.

    I ran these on my Tahoe (285/70/17) and I wasn't blown away by winter traction. We took it up to Glenwood Springs and Winter Park, both with snow packed roads and they didn't hook like I thought they would. I chalked it up to the tahoe being a short wheel base and a lighter vehicle but I probably wouldn't buy them again. They looked aggressive enough but I think I would opt for the BFG KO2's next go around.

    I just picked these up on the truck as well, in an LT with an E rating. Time will tell how they do but I'm excited to see how they do in the winter. Coming from a P rated tire, they are not squishy at all and don't plow through the turns. Loving them so far.

    Link below for thread on them I'll keep updated as time goes on.

    I have the E-rated Michelin Defenders (a great tire BTW) which used to be the M/S and then M/S 2. The E- rated is heavier as you stated, but gives added assurance when towing/hauling. It has a firmer side wall translating to a slightly firmer ride. Nice AC!
