Just put on a set of Goodyear Wrangler SR-A - LT265/60R20/E today. This was the factory tire. I think it a good all around tire. $756 less $80 rebate plus mount, balance and tax.

Maybe I missed it but just thought of this now.

What kind of travelling will the OP be doing with his TV?

If highway towing and paved campgrounds then a highway tire would be good. If going off the beaten path and boondocking then an AT tire would be better.

Highway - Firestone Tranforce HT
Other - Cooper Discoverer AT3

TT = 2007 Jayco Jay Flight 27bh
TV = 2006 F-350 CC DRW 6.0

I'm running Firestone TransForce AT's because that's what came on my RAM 2500 when I bought it. They're not bad but I have Michelin LTX M/S2 on my last truck before someone totaled it. Anyway, I prefer the Michelin's if for no other reason they are quite.

I have run the Cooper AT3's and did not get the life out of them that I wanted. On a single wheel, I like the Toyo AT II's. I have towed cross country with them, had them on several beaches (Atlantic and Pacific), dirt roads, rain, snow, and they have never given up on me. Very tough tire.

I'm running Firestone Transforce HT on mine; that's what came on the truck (just under 4K miles) and they are quiet and manage the load well. I would consider using them again at this point, and given others' experiences, they seem to be a good choice.

To be honest though, I don't have much comparison, this is my first HD truck. I can say that I run Michelins on my wife's XTerra, and based on that experience, I'll likely put Michelins on everything I put tires on forever. They're quiet, and the tread wears like nothing I've ever seen in a tire before. They will likely rot before I have to replace them for tread wear; TOUGH tire indeed. My friend gave me crap about spending so much money on tires when I put them on; he has since been through at least 2 sets of "cheaper" tires on each of his vehicles, and my Michelins still have PLENTY of life.
