LIke the title says which ones? Toyo are 100 bucks more, but that doesnt concern me. The things Im thinking about are:
Toyo- better tire, last long
Micky- width would look sick


These tires are going on 20x10 monsters

shawn, check the rating i dont think the mickey is E rated
If he's putting that big of a tire on the truck, he probably doesn't use it even close enough to justify an E rating.

a duramax truck without an e rate would bother me, especially if you pull or haul anything
Its a 21 year old kid with an 8" lifted Duruamax, likely not re-geared. He isn't pulling anything.

Actually I pull quite a bit. Between my buggy and work Im pulling 8-10,000 pounds atleast every other week. And if you are insinuating that I didnt pay for any of this u sir are incorrect. All 21 year olds are not lil punks like u may of been when u were 21. I work for everything I have.

I wasnt aware that the mickeys didnt have a E rating

What is the weight difference between D and E

...oh man, and at 24 you sound SOOOOO much more mature for having said that. :roflbow:

(...and what's wrong with Toyo's? I have 35x12.50-18's and love 'em...)

Good thing you put that "may" in there. ;)

I was not insinuating you didn't pay for it. You work hard enough and its very possible.

In light of the new information, you need to get the highest load rating tire you can find in the size you want. The 15.50s will suck when towing. Stopping with a 10,000lb load with wear down the front brakes faster with 15.50s. The narrow tires will also make turning with trailers much easier on your rear end, not to mention the added longevity.

Also, if you're putting added power thru that Allison, WITH 36"+ tires, while towing 10,000lbs+, you better start saving for a rebuild unless you're regeared.

i would go with the toyos im liking them alot more on my dually than i did my mtzs on my classic hd, the mtzs are alittle softer than the toyos and dont hold up as well under a diesels power.

but as far as weight ratings anything over 3000lbs a tire is plenty for only pulling 8-10000 pds since you probably only have at most a 1000lbs tonque weight. but i did look it up and the mtzs are rated for more weight...mtz-E at 3525 toyo-E at 3420....but you cant always expect a E to be rated more than a D, my 40" nittos are D loads and rated for 3860... i pull my 28ft enclosed trailer with my truck and dont have any issues.

how does that possibly lead to it likely not being regeared and him not pulling anything? Theres probably between 40 and 50 lifted 2500s, ram 2500s and/or f250/350s and i would venture to say I've seen at least 80% of them dragging shit around on a regular basis log trailers, horse trailers, boats, whatever.

add in all the 1500's like myself and its still probably 80%. oh an we're all in college so do the math on the age.

god awful logic.

Because 90% of 3/4-1 tons that are used for their designed purpose, are neither lifted 8", nor driven by 21 year olds.

90%? is that a fact? and what is their designed purpose, in this year, 2009? what prohibits 21 year olds from this use?

get off the "people who REALLY USE THEIR TRUCKS are so awesome" high horse, it was old on this site like 5 years ago.

75% of all statistics are made up. It's scientificly proven.

I didn't bust his balls for using his truck in whatever way he does. I assumed he used it in one way, turned out to be wrong, and offered sound advice in return. Their designed purpose, in 2009, is heavy hauling in comfort. Their robust drive trains and matching power ratings confirm this. Nothing prohibits 21 year olds from that use. If they can afford it, and are doing it, more power to them. No, "90%" is not a fact. That was an ignorant question. But, I bet its not far off. Notice I said 90% of the trucks being used for their designed purpose, NOT 90% of 3/4-1 ton trucks. Most 3/4-1 ton trucks are purchased by ranchers, farmers, oil field trucks, military, logging, hotshots, fleets requiring large payloads, contractors, etc.... most people that actually use them for their designed, don't lift them 8". A select few? sure... they've got the money and the desire and if done correctly poses no issue.

Actually. I'd like to add that a buddy of mine that runs an offroad shop is currently running cepek mud country on his h2 in a 36x15.5r20. He has previously run 40 nittos, 38 toyos, 38 kumhos, and 36 atzs and seems to love the cepeks. He says they are quieter than his kumhos, and I've heard that the kumhos are as quiet as the toyos.
