I ran the Dick Cepecks on my k5.  Mainly on road and a little dry dirt.  I didn't have them long enough to talk about wear, but they had good road manners.


I think I've got the wife talked into letting me swap her mall crawler "look at me" tires for a better set.  Currently she has a set of Amp terrain grapplers in a 305/55/20 on her 4runner.  They look nice but they are LOUD, and walk all over the road.  We have also gotten. A bit of Wheel shake lately.  I've never seen so many balancing weights on a wheel before, as these take.  A buddy of mine is a parts distributer, he was given a set of these to try out.  He lost his mind when he saw I had a set.  Apparently we wasnt very impressed.

That said I'm going to go a bit smaller.  She will be 99% on the road (unless this 2 day trip in august goes good, fingers crossed).  I haven't seen any mention of nitto's yet.  Curious what your thoughts are?  I've ran the terra grapplers and trail grapplers.  The trails were on my ram.  I was pretty impressed with the street manners, but the terra grapplers did me right all around on an h2.
