22 inch well...I think you would find the GY Fortera'* great overall in handling quiet on road and still pretty grippy in snow conditions. They have good sidewalls too which is important.
On tire rack site u can select your tire size & also see other brands as well.

Hope this helps!

tirerack.com is a pretty good source of information for replacement tires, they have reviews on different manufacturers, tread patterns,etc.

GY Fortera'* are stock on my Grand Cherokee, and they are not a good winter tire. If you have 4 wheel drive, the Fortera'* are slippery as heck on snow or ice. I put Michelin X-Ice on for the winter, and when the Fortera'* wear out I will definitely be replacing them with something else.

Take a look at Michelin LTX M/S2 or Continental CrossContact LX20. The Michelins are a better tire, but the Continentals are better value.

Any idea what u might be replacing the Fortera with Roy? Overall they are a good tire but no all season radial is really meant for serious winter conditions.

A real dedicated snow tire like the X-Ice is the way to go come winter.

On my Heep I run 17" GY Silent Armor'* and that is snowflake rated, not quiet though like an all season.
The more aggressive u get the worse the gas mileage too, but u got tires that are durable and winter ready all the time.

I think with 22" rims, the OP, Bengal is somewhat limited in selections though...

Makes no difference.

If you buy the cheapest, you get the worst results. As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.
Spend big bucks and you get the best.

i think i would get aftermarket 18in rims and BFG AT tires, you can get rims for 4-500 and tires for 6-8 hundred. 22'* dont have very much selection. and one is 800-1000 for tires you arent going to be happy with. as long as the over all diameter is close your truck will never know the difference. tire rack lists it as about 32in which is a very popular size for other rim sizes

I am thinking I would go with the Michelins, but I am two years away from that decision. Will re-evaluate at that time.

Winter performance is much less dependant on aggressive tread patters on modern tires. It'* all about rubber compounds, siping and surface abrasives. For example, the tread on my X-Ice'* are no more agressive than the Fortera'*, but the rubber is much softer, and there is silica in the rubber for grip.

Thanx guys. I will be reading reviews on tirerack. Looks like a great resource. I understand "you get what you pay for" but what you guys think of brand name vs lesser brands? Should I stay with the known brands like Michelin or Goodyear or should I consider the less expensive lesser brands.
