I have has a few customers that ran them and didn't get much life out of those. As far as wheel backspace, try to stay around 5.5" to avoid rubbing on the fenders.

I have a buddy who has your exact truck with those tires on it. He loves them. He keeps buying them and swears by them. I don't know what kind of miles he gets out of them, but I will ask.

ProComp tires suck IMO. I got 20k out of a set of 33's. Look into Toyo's or BFG M/T's if you want a mud tire. I got 50k+ out of my BFG's and have 32k on my Toyo's now and they have a lot of life left.

Here's my story of Pro-Comp Tires, but it is a few months old. I will NEVER buy another set.

I'm with you. I bought some Pro Comp XAT's (that have a 40k mile treadlife warranty) from a reputable vendor here (4 wheel customs). Shortly after I bought them, I had a tread block separate from the carcass of the tire. I might have had about 2000 miles on them when this happened. I took them to a local tire shop, had them patch the tire from the inside, and then I went to 4wp, the closest place that would supposedly "warranty" the tire. They told me that since I had the tire repaired on my own, that they wouldn't warranty it. I then asked if they would reimburse me the $20 I paid for the patch on the tire, since it was obviously a faulty tire that caused the issue. They blatantly told me no. So, I went home, with a "fixed" tire, that I paid for, that was plainly a molding issue, and not an offroading issue.

Fast forward to about 3 weeks ago. I noticed the tires were wearing really quickly, and almost down to the wear bars in the rear, and getting close in the front. At this point, I had about 20k miles on the tires, and have rotated them every 5k miles. I again, took them to 4 wheel parts in hopes that I'd be able to at least get the tires pro-rated, and make the next set cheaper, since they only really lasted half the miles that they are warranted for. Again, I was given the run around. They asked me where I lived. I told them that I lived up in the mountains, and that the truck saw winding mountain roads daily, but they should still not wear out this quickly. They have worn pretty evenly to this point. The "service advisor" point blank told me that mountain driving is not "normal driving circumstances" and that they would not warranty the tires, but would mount and balance a new set for me, for free, after I paid full retail for the tires. Needless to say, I walked out, after telling the guy that I'd never shop at a 4wp again. For anyone that lives in so cal, the Riverside 4wp is where all this happened. I am still running the tires, only because I am working on saving $$ for tires, because at $200 + per tire, they aren't cheap. Still trying to decide on my next set....
Just my experience.

I've since replaced those Pro comps with a set of Firestone Destination AT's.. 315/70/17's, load range E. I am pretty happy with them so far.
