    tires

    What tires are you guys running? I'm running BFG all Terrain t/a 265/75/R16 on all 4 corners, and I hate them with a passion. running at recommended Pressures, They have about 30k and the rears aren't even legal. Fronts are better but not by much. They are noisy, and support is non-existent. But to their credit, they handle nice and had decent traction.

    What do you guys use? I need an all-terrain tire, and something I can tow with. E load range is a must. 16" rims.


    Thoughts?

    BFG all-terrains just simply melt away on a heavy truck.

    If your truck is mainly on the street, like most are, go with as much rubber that will fit in the tires footprint. In other words the bigger the gap in between the lugs of the tire the less rubber is on the road. More rubber on the road equals more longevity. Less rubber means bigger gaps which is better off road.

    Most trucks running crazy looking tires are virtually never off the road, but they sure look cool, don’t they?

    Any way, this is just general statements and observations, not 100% accurate for all situations and conditions.

    I can tell you this, my truck is a heavy work truck, but won’t see much real off road, so a good heavy duty all season makes the most sense for me. If it were a Jeep and I was wheeling it, it have awesomely large, loud, and cool looking off road tires.

    So what are you doing with your truck? Daily driver/grocery getter? Hauling big heavy trailers and never see dirt? Long haul? Takes hay out to the cattle on the back 40?

    Mostly on road, going around to places I need to go. Towing? The most I pull is the tractor, so around 7000? pounds or so (Including trailer). I don't off road much, but i do have to go off the beaten path across a pasture once in a while, including wet ones. Snow traction is a concern, and I do get into muddy spots once in a great while. But mostly just on pavement and gravel roads.

    Thats the other thing- gravel+bfg all terrain= ripped and notched treads. In other words, these tires hate gravel. Even just riding along normally and not spinning the tires kills the treads.

    I have Michelin LTX-AT on my '17 Sierra 2500 and I'm pleased with them. My driving is similar to yours, they currently have 36k miles of wear and I project they'll be replaced next fall at somewhere between 45-50k. I rotate them every 5k and only in the last 6k miles have I noticed traction begin to fall of in wet weather.

    I run Toyo open Country ATII, I do a mix of everything, tow, highway, farm work and some but little off-road.
    I really like them guessing a 45k tire and they both, look good, but also have some road noise.

    The Cooper AT/3 seems to be a popular choice - a few guys here who have ranches in the west have made positive comments avout them. While I haven’t had this exact model I have become a Cooper tire fan over the years.

    They make a few different models in their AT line -

    Oh - and made in the USA!

    I have F150 FX4 that I do a lot of towing with and its my daily driver. It has a level kit and 34inch tires. Nothing crazy but gets my to a tire size that looks more appealing. The Original tires were Pirelli's and I hated them. They handled horrible on anything but perfectly dry paved roads.

    I Quickly changed them to Goodyear Wranger Duratracs and they are great tires. Handled amazing in snow and mud/dirt. They are a decent road tire that handled well in all conditions. They were a little loud on the highway but it was manageable. I got 65K out of those tires but at the end of their life they got to be pretty loud.

    I now have Nitto Terra Grapplers G2's and that are pretty quiet on the road, and seem to handle well. They handle my trailer weight decent but are clearly not as good in the snow or dirt as the Wranglers. They do well but my perception is different now after having the wranglers. I think I get a little better mileage with the Nittos.

    I have found that there is no perfect tire. They all have their place depending on what you need. I have never had BFG's simply because people say how fast they wear out.

    As soon as I got the new 2017 Ram 2500 I swapped out the stock tires for Nitto Ridge Grapplers. Around 14K miles on them now and I have to say I love them. They are very quiet on the highway - probably quieter than the stock tires - and they have been wearing very well.

    I second the Firestone Destination AT's. My dad runs them on his 3500 RAM as does my old neighbor on his F350 with a 7.3L diesel. Both of those trucks are load range E tires if memory serves me. Also, my brother just had a set put on his 1500 Silverado, loves them so far.
