I've been researching tires for my 1 ton truck for a while now with the following requirements:
What I ended up ordering is 2 of the Hankook (Korean) Dynapro ATM RF10 to try on the front of my 3500 before shelling out the $$ for 6. So I order them on a Sunday from Discount Tires Direct for $328 for 2 LT235/80R17E1 12R W with free shipping and had them sent directly to the installer where they arrived on Tuesday. On Wednesday I took the wheels in and they were mounted and balanced for $48 including metal valve stems. Wednesday night I drove them 136 miles and I fell in love. Quiet, ride great, corner as well or better then the OEM Generals, and did I tell ya they ARE QUIET. Last night it rained so I went for a drive and hit every puddle I could and they handled the water like a champ both deep in town gutter puddles and deep Kansas highway tire grooves at up to 90 MPH.
- 10 ply LT tire
- Semi aggressive tread since I live out in the country and I spend half my life offroad in the muck.
- Quiet on the highway with uncompromised high speed and braking characteristics along with outstanding wet, snow and ice behavior.
I've decided to order the other 4 with the big and most important tests to come. Towing, mud, snow, ice behavior and combinations of all 4.
I also included the Hankook tire data PDF.
