Welcome to the club Brother! I have been running those tires for 2 years and love them. They don’t seem to be wearing bad at all and a lot of those miles are at 15k lbs. with the camper on.

I am running them too.  I studded mine and will only run in the winter. thinking about the same size in the Toyo all terrain for summer

I just bought a extra Cooper ST Maxx in the same size to use as a spare. It was actually a spare tire and wheel than had never been on the ground and has a late 2016 build date. paid $100 for the tire and wheel. traded the wheel for studding and $15 for mount and balance  on my dually wheel

The Toyo A/T2's are a great tire! I love them on my truck

I like my Toyo AT2's. One thing I will say is they are easy to spin in the wet, especially if I run them with full pressure. Empty I usually run them at 52psi front and 40 psi rear, helps the wet traction considerably. We are taking the truck to Leavenworth this weekend, looks like I'll get to give them a good test in the snow, according to the forecast!

They are surprisingly quiet for what they are. Barely hear a hum.

Best thing about them was the price. 1089$ shipped to the house no tax. Then the tire shop down the road was 20$ per wheel to dismount/ mount and balance.

You gotta try Taptalk. So much easier to load pictures.

I needed a better tire for the snow, so I replaced my Michelin LTX Defenders (highway tire with a M+S rating) with a set of Nitto EXO Grapplers (3 Peak snow rating). First commute over Thursday morning, as expected, they were noisy compared to the LTX's and rode rougher. Didn't see any snow though it looks like I will driving home tomorrow. They certainly look nicer, way more aggressive looking and a choice of sidewalls!

Sorry for the hijack Adam, your truck looks great!
