I need new tires for the LR3. Right now, it has Nitto Terra Grapplers, 255/60/18, 112V rating. The tire I want is a Hankook Dynapro ATM but it's a 107T. Would that be an issue?

Hard to find all terrains in that size.

Use the OEM load rating or higher.

OEM is 112V I think.

Looks like I'll have to get Pirelli Scorpion ATRs.

Tire shops will not install a lower load index than what originally came with the car. It simply won't be able to carry as much weight as the correct load rated tire.

Do you like the Terra Grapplers? smile

107 is 2149lbs per tire. Personally I feel pretty good when 1 axle is enough to drive on with my normal load in a car...
I never drive at 85 mph through death valley though, so YMMV. It is a huge down grade in tire load capability for sure, but I think if you are still very under loaded, and don't drive fast, it shouldn't be a significant increase in risk.
If you do like to run 85mph in the summer towing your boat with the car stuffed to the gills then keep with the higher load rating for sure.

Absolutely love them, this is the second set I've had on it (4th set I've ran overall). Now they have G2s but they don't make them in my size anymore and I'm not sure if I can even get the old ones anymore...

Discount Tire has them listed on their website.

I just saw that...I might call them and ask how old the stock might be/if they are still making them. It wouldn't be fun to get a set that's the same age as what's on it nor would it be fun if I had to replace one down the road and couldn't get them.

I will stick with 112V, it's not worth the safety to downgrade. Not that I tow or anything, but I don't want to take away from its ability to.

Thanks for the help everyone!

Do NOT get scorpions. Those tires are absolute garbage.

Do a Google search for all the Ford guys that chucked them within 6 months of buying a brand new truck.

I don't doubt your assertion, but people who "chuck" tires within 6 months of buying a brand new truck usually are going "jacked up and keeping it country". I'm not sure that is really the crowd I want to follow when buying sensible sized tires.

Nitto has the both the original Terra Grappler and the G2 listed on their website, so I would assume they're still making them. It appears that most sizes have moved to the G2, but 255/60/18 is one of just a few still made in the original Terra Grappler.

Also, they do make the G2 in 265/60/18, which would be a very minimal size difference. They have a higher load rating and are actually a bit cheaper.

Hankook Dynapros come in 265/60r18 which should fit your vehicle according to the following site (which also lists other tire options) and has a 114 load rating.

I was noticing all the bad reviews were written by people with F150s...I was wondering if the OEM ones were a different compound to meet a price point. The other reviews seemed more positive.

I did look at the Generals but I think it's kind of an old design. I am going to make sure the Nittos aren't being made anymore before ruling them out.
