Thanks for the reference. That is a tall tire. How is the gearing at highway speeds -- any hunting in and out of 6th gear?

Nope, nothing. I can't tell at all driving, just looks a teensy bit bigger, and was way cheaper than OEM. I spent a couple hours with my tire guy pricing through everything that would fit after researching online (which is why I figured if you're looking for LR3 tires I could potentially save you some time). We have over 20K on them and they've held up well, probably half the tread left, but bought them before the BFG redesign and new price point. When it's time for new tires, I'll likely go same size and price will determine Toyo/BFG and maybe Cooper because everyone I know that has them loves them. Unless they last until my wife is tired of the truck, at which point I'll be lifting it and starting back over on sizes.
