You looking for bigger style like toyos or more stock road tires?

For road tires I love the Michelin LTXs load range e. good wear, quite, and handles the weight REALLY well.
As far as off road style I LOVED my Toyo MTs. I know a lot of people complain about them but I loved them and they come in an E rating also.

Michelins LTX is the way I would go then. They are most definatly a street tire but the run down the road well

X2!  Michelin LTX ms2 will last forever and ride very well.
