    That truck just might have frame rust (I know it's the early trucks)!! The only think that caused problems with my 02 Tundra

    I did quite a bit of research and ended up buying Toyo Open Country ATII. Better load rating than KO2, cheaper with more warranty. They are a tad noisier than OE Good Years but less squishier and hold the road better too. And did I say they look great on the truck ;)

    I thought Ford ran solid rubber tires on square wood rims?

    What is a "better" load rating?

    Seeing some videos on YouTube with oem suspension with 285/75/16s... Anyone know for sure if they will fit on OR with no lift?

    Also saw 255/65/16. Little narrower but not a bad look.

    ?

    What are your requirements for said load range?

    "Better" is subjective..... What do you mean?

    I believe C rated. Lighter tire, Stronger sidewall, better handling. I am not a tire specialist nor am I pretending to be, if you are one please do lead the way. I am always up to learning something new, seriously.

    My truck will not see any extreme off-roading, in fact it'll spend 90% on paved roads. Why did I go with Toyos? Good reviews, good thread warranty, look aggressive enough without making my truck look like a tractor, price, made in Japan. My personal observations; handling is better than OE Good Year Wranglers (not squishy, running 33psi), slightly noisier, balanced really well, so far did really good in rain, hopefully will be as good in the snow.
