the biggest thing to worry about is longevity, you dont want a tire that will wear away in 20-30k miles or you might as well run swampers... but i would talk to the shop and see what people have to say about them, but i personally would look for an all terrain instead. an aggressive all terrain will better suit your truck.

I had a pair of the 916's (low pro sports) that were on a set of rims I purchased once. They were actually decent tires. nothing to write home about, but decent.
I know you are talking about a different type of tire all together, but as for brand name, there is only so many companies that make tires, yet there are ten times that many brand names.
If I remember right, I wanna say they are manufactured by General or Uniroyal. don't quote me on that though.

Those tires are made my National brand tire company. The same company that makes Pro Comp tires. I'm a dealer for these tires here in MI. Here those tires are known as GT Radial Adventuro M/T's, same exact tread design. I have a buddy with them on a S-10 Blazer who loves them. They are going to wear faster then the A/T's due to the opened up tread lugs, but rotate them every 6000 and you should get some pretty good tread life out of them. And thats a great price considering its almost 200 more for my out the door pricing. I run the A/T version of these on my dads Suburban and he loves them too they do great in the snow and mud. Its just more of a pesronal choice of weither or not you want the A/T's or M/T's
