Except when it comes to avatar pics.

Back on topic though... Let us know what tires you have now (size and brand) and how much/what kind of off roading you do.

I'm assuming you meant LT245/70R16 mabey. Check it out again! If so, I would start out by getting a slightly wider tire; like at least a 265/70 series. Check out the wheel and tire thread for some ideas.

what I don't get is your current tire size. Assuming your truck is an SE (CC with not roof rack) your stock tire size was 265/70/16. So it seems like either that size or the 265/70/16 (which was std on nismo) is what you should be looking for.

Those are both great tires and would be good for a DD.

I guess that depends what your daily drive is like, and if you plan to go off road at all. If not I might lean more towards the open country a/t as a solid year round tire, which comes in both the 265/70/16 and the 265/75/16.

If you go with the M/T you will have a much louder and bumpier ride. Same to be said about the Mickey's, look at the ATZ for a smother quieter ride.

"All terrain traction for the grip you need on your weekend adventures, with the smooth ride you want to get you down the road in comfort. Features an extra wide footprint and beefy tread blocks for great all around traction."

Tire sizes made easy by ffips:

The 245 = 245mm wide -- the area touching the ground.
The 75 = 75% of 245 which is the height of the sidewall (between ground and wheel)
The R16 = size of your rim = 16"

Then there are speed ratings, load ratings, traction ratings and wear ratings. What is listed above is the basic info need for the "will it fit" question.

Now why they mix mm and " is beyond my knowledge, but now you know the basics.
