tires

Ok guys it is time again to soon get tires. I'm looking for a 35 inch tall tire that's not really aggressive but looks good. Its for the street not for pulling or anything like that. I want a good looking tire with good grip and something that will hold up for a while. What do you guys like. I have already decided not to go with a BFG or Cooper again.

My truck:
1999 Dodge 24 Valve Cummins
P pump conversion with a 180 pump
Pump doesn't have a fuel plate, 4g springs, & full cut dv's, no afc, ect..
.093 fuel lines
Air Dog 165
custom ground cam
mahle pistons with .050 valve reliefs
balanced rotating assembly
8 x 11 injectors
ported head with 60lbs valve springs and 12mm studs
Pro 52
Polydyn header
stage 5 east coast diesel bullit automatic trans.
triple disk dunrite torque converter
4.10 gears
klienn train horns
Nubers with the twins and without header
603hp 1157tq
12.7 quarter mile (then ht3b blew again)

Michelin LTX AT/2--I have a set and like 'em very much. They're not very aggressive but are QUIET on the big road, have good traction in any of the conditions I've tried, and by all the reviews I've read they should last a good long while.

Micky Thompson MTZ, I have a few friends that are running and like them. I personally have Nitto Dune Grapplers and have no complaints about them except for they are not the best in the snow.

Firestone MT's or Good year MTR's BFG MT's cooper STT's Super swamper TSL radial's. . .

believe it or not them TSL radials last 45K on the hi way way better then the biasply's !

But the Firestone MT's will last the longest and run the quietest . . .
