Firestone Transforce HT tires

Had 6 new Firestone TransForce HTs installed yesterday. I put a fair bit of miles on my truck in a short amount of time so I'll give a road report on these from time to time. I've read several good reviews on these and have talked to guys running them so I am confident they will wear well.

I put those on my motorhome when I had it. Best highway truck tires I ever owned by far. You made a good choice and will be happy with them.

I've tried just about all brands, but have had the best luck with Bridgestone Dueler ATs on my trucks. Part of the problem is the mile-long caliche & rock driveway before I hit the pavement. ... I do look forward to hearing how the Firestones wear, though.

I put a set on my truck 2 years ago. Like them so far, I have about 18,000 miles on them about 5,00 towing! Seem to be a good tire.

glad to hear more good things on these tires. I do approx. 13,000 miles a month, half of that towing so I will get a read on their wear quickly.

My truck came with them. My only complaint is they seem to ride a bit rough when not towing. When towing, they ride fine.

I had the Transforces installed on my 3/4 ton and they were a lot better than the factory tires (which I can't recall what they were now).

Just put around 4500 kms on them, half off that towing, and they ride decent loaded and empty. Saw some intense rain and water on the road and felt ho hydro-planning. So far I'm content with them.

I had 6 put on mine last year with 2K in towing and very happy with them. Best part is that they were made in the USA! Great wear so far and I thought the ride improved. You should be happy.

My 2500 came with a new set of Transforces on her. Pleased so far, but only about 7K on the tires..
