I was calling around on tire prices for my 2002 Toyota Tacoma (265/70R16) and was talking to the guy at Sears about the Bridgestone Dueler H/T. I asked about the UTQG rating and he said it was 180! I just about fell out of my seat. He said that it sounded wrong too so he went out and looked at the tire and sure enough--it was 180. Considering the fact that the other tires I was pricing were in the 400-520 range, this sounded crazy. Anyway, I went out and looked at my truck and it has Dueler H/T's from the factory and sure enough, THOSE say it has a UTQG rating of 180! I have over 45K miles on them and will probably get 50K--which isn't bad. So my question is this: why are Bridgestone's UTQG ratings so low compared to other that I am seeing on Discount Tire's website (www.tires.com)? I see some Dunlops and Yokohamas with a 500 rating for around the same price that Sears wants for the Bridgestones. Any insight will be greatly appreciated. Also, I don't mind any recommendations for a ~$100-110 tire for my truck in this size. THANKS!
