I have these on my Sierra. They perform great and ride great, but they are not real quiet. I can definitely hear a little road noise from them.

Really!!. I found them not to be that loud at all, maybe itís your Sierra .

I canít believe the difference with the new treads on, compared to the old ones. Itís like getting a new pair of sneakers Lol.

The verdict is in....

Alrighty, I went with the Nitto Ridge Grapplers
295/55/R20's
So far so good, with the 25 miles I put on them
Oh yeah, and the dreaded "Chevy Shake" is gone. I took up to 80 and a smooth ride; must have been the 'ol crap tires now off to recycling! Thanks to all for the suggestions and insight....

I think you've talked me into trying them when (if) I ever wear out these duratracs

My duratracs did the same thing, once i replaced them with new ones, that shake went away. Mine would start at 80, but now itís good all the way till the truck shuts off the petro .
