How are the Nittos for on road? Obviously they're good off road but what are they like comfort and noise wise. Dry road, wet road, snow(if you get any) etc.

They have a noticeable hum to them, but not enough to bother me. A little more firm than stock, but once again, not enough to bother me. They've been fine in the rain. I can't speak to snow, but we have had ice on the road here a few times and they were pretty good. They did better in 4 wheel drive on the ice than the stock Pirelli's did. Great tire overall. If you want to keep the factory ride and noise, I'd say they aren't for you. If you want something that looks awesome and still rides incredibly smooth for an M/T, these are the answer. I'll likely go with them again after these wear out, unless I can find a better deal on something similar.

Alright thanks. I was set on DuraTracs for awhile but now I'm revisiting these as well as the BFG's...

Toyo's are some good tires too from what I've heard.

Look up 4 posts from yours (#32) for the noise and ride. If you are worried about MPG, they probably aren't for you. I was at 15 MPG overall before the new tires. Dropped to 11.5 immediately after the tires. After a tuner, I got back up to 13.5. Well worth the looks of the tires to me

Did you end up selling your headlights? Im real interested in them for my '12.

Truck build looks really good.

Nope. Haven't even had any hits yet. You would be the first. I've actually put the idea of getting new ones on hold until you just posted this. Thanks

Shoot me a PM and maybe we can work something out. Thanks!
