Well, I was unhappy with how the BFG A/T KO tires rode and they were very unnecessary since they were load E tires and I rarely do any towing or hauling. I initially was looking for something in load C or D, but they were hard to come by...especially in anything bigger than a 32" tire. I probably changed my mind about 5-6 times.
Tires I considered were:
-Cooper STT (They were available in load C...and I was really wanting something for LOOKS over function. I actually ordered these but ended up canceling that order.)
-Cooper AT3 (available in load C and P-metric)
-Hankook ATM RF10
-General Grabber AT2
-Nitto Terra Grapplers
-Michelin LTX M/S2
Finally settled on some Michelin LTX A/T2s in the p-metric. Overall, I'm happy with the ride improvement. They ran me a pretty penny and sounds like they'll last awhile (which, really isn't a huge concern for me since I change vehicles every year or two). They don't look as agressive as what I really wanted...but, in the end, it was more about function over fashion. They are 275/65/18. I got them from discount tire after they price matched a price I found off of onlinetires.com. Michelin has a $70 rebate right now, too.

Overall went well. Had to redo the 'M' on both the front and back due to some peeling that happened when I went to take the tape off which was frustrating. You really have to make sure you stick the tape AWAY from the red lettering because the plasti dip adheres to whatever it's in contact with. I'm contemplating just removing the rear badges altogether, but we'll see what happens.
