    Time to get new tires and I’d like something a little more aggressive than stock. I do a decent amount of highway driving so they cant be obnoxious/loud.

    Very little off road but do spend a good chunk of time on dirt roads.

    Have snows for winter so don’t care about snow/ice performance.

    Any suggestions?

    I pretty much drive like a maniac behind the wheel compared to 99% of the other people out there and the goodyear eagle ls/2 or eagle sport suit my needs very well, they are not "beefy" but with these heavy trucks they stick to the road like glue, they are speed rated I believe to 160 (faster than these trucks will ever go) and you can get very decent mileage out of them and virtually no road noise. prices are not absurd generally you can a set of 4 installed for less than $600. Pretty good bang for the buck I could be running pirelli's or some fancy name brand but honestly I just feel like I am paying for a "brand name" at substantial higher cost. just my 02.$

    Only brand of M/Ts I have ever had were Toyos but I had 3 different sets and was never bothered by the noise.

    Wheels are 22”x9” from OEWheelsLLC. Tire are relatively quiet to be more aggressive, but louder than stock.

    If you want something slightly less aggressive check out Nitto Terra Grapplers G2
