Dextero Tire P245/75R16

Any one used Dextero P245/75R16 tires on there 3/4 ton? Im looking for responses regarding their dependability etc. I bought a Silverado 2500HD Cew 4+4. that had 285/55r20 on it, Beautiful rims were horrible for my needs. (2011 Prime time Crusader 36.4' 1700 lb tong weight and a B&W companion hitch).
I was going to buy Toyo for the smooth ride but wanted the convenience of the Wall mart tire centers in case of an emergency.

They recommended Dextero P245/75R16 however I thought I would get the RV'ers take on them before I buy. I want a smooth

I would not recommend a "P" (passenger) type tire for a pick-up truck hauling a load. That's what "LT" (Light Truck) tires are for. Basically a stiffer tire design, better suited to handling heavier loads. I think Walmart carries that size/type too.

Depends on the year of the truck, but I think the LT245/75R16 size was a standard tire for the 2500HD. The 18" and 20" wheels with low-profile tires were offered in some trim upgrades or as dealer add-ons for those who wanted a more stylish vehicle.

I recommend Bridgestone Duravis R500's or the Michelin's LTX M/S tire. (I just got rid of my Toyo Open Country A/T's.) I special ordered the LTX's through Costco only to find out they sell the "Walmart" special tread tire that's the exact same quality tire as my more expensive LTX M/S tires. That tire's exclusive to Walmart and Costco.

I certainly don't want any tire nobody's ever heard of--common for Chinese will pop tires.
