Gary - how are those HXT's doing? I am getting ready to put new tires on my 07 Chevy 3500 and was looking at those and the Hankook's. The price is almost the same. Still recommend them?

I think Ram totally cheaped out putting those Nexen trash tires on the dually trucks..  Could you imagine buying a Laramie Longhorn for $70-$75k & the truck comes with $650 worth of rubber under it..?

Update for me, I've been running those Bridgestone Duravis r500's as pictured above.  Also a closed shoulder design.  Steers have about 80k on em', & 9-10 32nds!!  Never rotated & just pushed past the 100k mile mark on the drives.  They are about shotout  though.  Ranging from 3.5-3  32nds left, & I will 100% be buying them again..  $169 a piece for 100k mile tire can't be beat, even more miles if my lazy butt would have rotated them..

Ordered online from a joint called tire hero, & picked up from their south FLA warehouse..

I probably only have 800 miles on these HXT's. So far though I like them. They're quiet and ride nice. I think they're gonna be a good tire.
