K02's have some pretty bad ratings for a HD trucks.  They wear pretty fast from what I have read.  

 

I am trying to deicde between AT3 xlt's and duratrac's for my truck.  

 

 

Do you need snow rating?

Thanks for letting me know. So I guess, I'd better choose the Toyo's instead.

Most guys with Toyo's like them. I too was looking at the AT3 XL's, but the farmers coop had the new Mastercraft AXT2's (Made by Cooper in the USA) so I have them on my 2nd gen and on the rear of my (DRW) 4th gen. So far, I am really happy with them

I bought my 2013 with Cooper At3 & in spite of what I read about not the best stopping in wet conditions they performed fantastic on 4k mile trip pulling my 15K 5th wheel in a lot of rain, never had a problem one. They did well in the GA mud as well.  The fronts cupped a little, but that wasn't the tire.  I am getting ready to put Ironman AT's on next.

My choice on tires still is the Hankook ATm's for the 2002 Dodge 2500 running (245/75 R16) These I typically get 60k to 70k a set.

 

My 2006 is leveled on 18's with (285/70 R18 - 33.7 inches) and all this will go away here in the near future. Getting back to stock height and tire sizes again. This truck is not happy with the size creates plenty of lugging and high EGT's even empty being the truck is a bit over 9,200 pounds empty with a heavy steel flatbed. 

 

As for the small light weight truck 1996 Dodge 1500 its running Cooper Discovery tires. (215/75 R16)
