Need tire recomendations for stock \'97 ram 1500

Time for some new tires. Right now I have some LT265 75 R16's. I'd like to replace them with the same, unless I can go to 285 75 R16's. I'm looking at Bridgestone Dueler AT's, but I'm open to suggestions. This is primarily a work truck, that won't see any serious offroading. But I'd still like a nice angry tire for both looks and the occasional torn up work site. Thanks.

The 285's will fit fine. Personally I like the Cooper S/T's. They're sorta a very aggressive all terrain. All Terrain like tread, but with the depth and tread voids of a MT. So they handle and last very similar to an AT, but can actually get you through mud a bit longer before turning into muddy donuts.

Swampers!!! They make small radial versions or bias ply tires, and they make the truck look very sharp. Plus bf goodrich tires are at times more money than them and the swampers are much tougher with thick sidewalls.

I dunno, seems like Swampers would be overkill for what he needs.

I ran Dayton Timberline A/T's on my 98 Ram 285/75/16. They cost about $435 installed. The only problem I had was 3.55 gears and a 318. It hit overdrive on every little hill. Just be thankful you have 16 inch wheels. There are very few tire choices for my 01 Ram with 17's

Pro Comp All Terrains.

Severe weather rated for snow/ice/rain, great looking tread for an All Terrain, and with a 40,000 mile treadwear warranty...
