    Tire Chioce

    Thinking about getting some new shoes for the old F150.

    I drive this truck 3-5 thousand miles a year. Occasionally tow a trailer and go on gravel roads.

    Wondering what all you guys recommend for tire choices.

    Not looking to spend a further but donít want to go super cheap either.

    I think itís still on it Original pair of shoes and at 15 years old they are getting kinda dry rotted. Still have a good bit of tread left in them at 60000 miles though.

    Thanks

    I have bought truck tires, car tires and wheels, and horse trailer tires and wheels on line from www.tirerack.com.

    Their web site ranks tires for your specific vehicle based on criteria you select such as price range, type, speed rating, and a lot of other factors you can pick. When you look at wheels you can also select the color of your vehicle, and their computer shows you pictures of your vehicle with various wheels and tires.

    I just picked a F150 randomly simce I didn't have any specifics about yours, and several types of Cooper tires came up at or near the top of the recommended list.

    You can have tires and/or wheels shipped by them to a local tire store who installs for them, or you can get them shipped to you already mounted and balanced with a wheel and tire package. I've done both, and no problems.

    My winter wheels are Coopers and my summer wheels are Michelins..... Both provide good service but the Coopers make a lot more road noise due to the tread design. The Michelins are like riding on a cushion of air.... lol... literally...

    Looking for on road traction and long lasting (60K)= Firestone TransForce AT
    All terrain and decent wear (50k) = Hankook Dyanpro ATM
    Off road and decent wear (40K) = Goodyear DuraTrac

    I've had all 3 on my F250, currently on DuraTracs. Will go back to them when these wear out, only time I've been stuck I ran out of ground clearance.

    Funny, Iíve had just the opposite. Maybe itís just the bowtie.
    Iíve had all the tires you listed above plus a few others, Bridgestone for one.
    So far I have zero issues with the Coopers and they are wearing better that the Goodyear tires, and much better than the Hankook.

    YMMV, literally. Tires are just one piece of the mileage puzzle.

    I've been happy with the BF Goodrich Long Trail or Rugged Trail tires on tacomas and F-150s. The BF Goodrich KO2 is a good tire for trucks too and a little more agrressive. They're not cheap, though. Michelin defenders have worked well on the wife's explorer. Also not cheap. Tires are one of the most important parts of any vehicle. They should be the only part that touches the road. ;)
