    what size are you looking for? that could play a pretty big factor. aslo what gears and trans do you have? i would say BFG M/Ts since you mentioned its a daily driver.

    if your going for a daily driver id look more into radials. i lost 3mpg when i switched to bias ply :doah: cost less now but you spend more in gas

    just noticed you're running a D44/12 bolt. you may want to reconsider 38" tires, as those axles probably wont like them very much.

    I can't speak on their longevity, but my 39.5 Iroks ride better unballanced than my last 2 sets of tires (38" SSR's and 35" BFG Mud Ta KM's) Both other sets had been road force balanced on what was supposed to be Hunters latest and greatest. I am very impressed w/ the road manners of a biased ply tire, my first. Oh yeah, my truck never sits more than a day, but I am yet to experience the "flat spot" that everyone says is a draw back to biased ply. I would have to think that the radial Irok should be built equally as well. $.02
