Tires and shocks make the largest impact on ride and handling. My choices are Michelin and Bridgestone. Shocks are Bilstein and KYB. The difference between good and great is usually just a few dollars.......labor is the same.

I had good results with Geolander ATs. They stayed balanced & I was satisfied with the mileage but I forget what mileage was. I'm cheap so would remember if the ware out early.

Currently running Terra Grapplers and also have good results. My understanding is that they've changed the rubber formula to get better mileage. It doesn't snow here so we don't have to deal with different tires in winter.

No off road to speak of.
2000 Quad Cab,Longbed, NV4500, 410 Gears, 4X4, ISSPro gauges, Thuren 3rd Gen Trackbar (beautiful), AGR Steering Box - box works - NOPE, spoke too soon. Never AGR again. 2 dumped fluid & lost brakes & steering, 4th is too loose. AGR = pp quality control & long wait for replacement (doing something different. Will update with what works), DSS Steering Brace, AirDog 100 = 13# solid, Rusty Doors (POR15 at the bottom for now covered with color match Rustoleum)

I had some Nitto Dura Grapplers on my 03 2500. They were good tires, but really soft and did not last very long (unable to give the mileage out of them out of sheer forgetfulness)...But it wasn't much out of them. (Keep in mind this was 2006 time frame, unsure if they may have changed.) Replaced them with Toyo's and sold the truck shortly after but they seemed to wear much better than the Nitto's did. Put Hankook on an 06 3500 DRW and they were ok, but the driver side front one did separate (luckily only running about 40mph). I should mention that the Hankooks were over 5 years old, and the truck was not used often (nor pulling), and even sat while deployed for a year at a time, with the sun probably doing most of the damage. I only suggest that if using the dually to tow a fair amount of weight and doing it often, get a well known and properly rated tire. Lots of middle of the road priced tires that have favorable reliability and reviews. -- I went with the hankooks because they were extremely cheap, and I only pulled a 20ft open trailer with a few toys on it very minimal distances (50 miles or less.)
