Then you could get what you are comfortable with and save the future aggravation and expense.
Do you still have options with a 20 inch rim?

With all rims if I am not mistaken. The majority come with those Pirelli Scorpions that no one likes, but I have seen a few other brands installed from factory. I honestly can't remember which, but I believe one is made by Continental. It's a total passenger car tire though.

Are any of these what the truck has? I'd avoid these as well. Shitty siping for slushy conditions.

They're the Dueller Alenza. Just found it on Discount Tire's site and it's the most expensive listed!!

Speaking of tires, looks like gravel is taking it's toll on my tires and if I start my 120 round trip job I think it will be time to move up. Though I have an Fx2 I may look into a bit more aggressive as well. I already have a 4X4 for crappy weather, just think a little better tire would be good insurance for those times weather sneaks in.

Just looked them up. I bet they'd be a great cruising tire for sure. Quiet too. But not aggressive at all. Kinda surprising they have a top shelf tire like that on a pickup from factory. I don't know. This is the first I have even heard of them.

When I replace tires, I buy the best I can afford. There are plenty of cheap options out there, but I really believe you pay for what you get.

I'm not talking price. I'm looking at aggressiveness vs ride vs wear vs mileage.
