Probably because the tire is less popular. Just throw some 295/65s on it and roll. And get toyo at2 if you want a good tire. The Nitto ridge grappler is nice too but wont last as long.

Make sure you are comparing apples to apples. Are both tires E rated?


Back in the day I used BFGs on everything. This past truck was all street use so I went with Micheliens. My current truck (Power Wagon) had 2 blowouts at the deer lease. I don't carry 2 spares so we loaded up the truck (buddies) and headed to Discount. Got there about 5 on Saturday so I kinda had to buy what they had. Ended up with Nitto Ridge Grapplers 295 70 17E. Right at $1200 for the set. That was about 10k miles ago. I couldn't be happier. Good traction, quite on the freeway, good wear. When its time to replace them, I'll get the same.
We appreciate your support, Charlie! The Ridge Grappler is a solid performer - I'm sure they will serve you well for many more miles!

Y’all used to sell them and install til 6 years ago, then I’d buy elsewhere and y’all would install and sell me a lifetime balance/rotate and now y’all won’t even rotate and balance the ones I have to buy from someone else. Is there anyway around this?
First and foremost, we appreciate your previous business and we thank you for the question, Texashookset!

I'd also like to apologize for the fact that we did not do a better job explaining to you why we are no longer able to service 325/60R-20 size tires on your truck. I think I may know the reason behind why we won't but I don't want to provide you with misinformation. That being said, may I ask what year your F350 is?

Thank you for the additional details, Texashookset.

Tire safety and procedures are growing within our industry and with customer safety being a top priority for us here at Discount Tire, we want our practices inline. With that in mind, there are a number of factors that come into play when we are now verifying tire fitments. One of them is tire size to rim width range.

I pulled the 17' and 12' O.E. 20" wheel data for your F350's and both are 20x8.5. In this particular instance, the 325/60R-20 tire size is safely run on 9-inch to 12-inch wide wheels per the Tire and Rim Association (T&RA). For this fitment/application, we recommend a wider wheel.

My apologies again that this was not explained to you earlier. If you would like to explore the aftermarket wheels that work with this tire size please don't hesitate to PM us - I'm more than happy to help! I'll also add that there will be an Independence Day promotion this year and if it's anything like last year's promo, you can expect to save $100.00 back by mail with the purchase of four(4) alloy wheels!

Both tire sizes are 10 ply load range E and both have 15/32" tread depth.

Guess the only point that has been raised that could make sense is the current supply and availability of the bigger tire vs the stock size.

What else bothers me is the 275/65/20 KO2 is actually half an inch smaller than the 275/65/20 Michelin.

So to get a tire that is the same diameter but a small bit wider you have to pay darn near twice as much.

Looks like I'll be going with the Ridge Grapplers in 295/65/20 since I'll get a better look for the same price.

We appreciate your support, Ranger!

Glad to hear you're pleased with the ATP. I'm seeing a lot of positive reviews on the AT3 XLT so I'm sure you'll enjoy those as well.

Let us know if we can help in any way when the time comes for new rubber.
