Firestone Transforce tires

Does anyone have any good or bad experiences with Transforce tires load range E? These are 18 inch.

I've been very pleased with the 17" Firestone Transforce HT tires on my half ton truck. They've been on there nearly 5 years and have about 50,000 miles on them. There have been zero issues, and they still have plenty of tread left.

Russell,

On the tt? What size tires do you have?

Buddy had a set stock on his '13 Ram 2500. Seemed like decent tire they are now on his wife's 1500 Suburban. Still doing good.

I have a set on my truck and am very happy with them after one year. I have a buddy who installed them on his camper and tow vehicle and is also satisfied.

I bought the road warranty on mine since Firestone is most everywhere.

I have them on my truck, HT version, 6k miles, about 1/3 towing (or maybe more idk) and no problems so far. Pretty smooth ride so far.

They were factory installed on my Ram 2500. I put about 6k miles on them before I swapped the tires and wheels out. I needed/wanted a more agressive AT tire. For the time I had them on they seemed fine. I still have them mounted on the OEM chrome 18" wheels and would love to unload them should someone be interested.

need-a-vacation,

I upgraded the trailer tires from a 15 inch diameter load range D ST tire to a 16 inch diameter load range E LT tire (LT225\75R16) in a Firestone TransForce HT. Around 7,000 miles this year on trailer, completely trouble free.

I have read a lot of opinions that Michelin XPS Rib and Bridgestone Duravis 500 HD are great tires in that size.

I had them on my motorhome about 5 years ago and plan on putting them on my Dually next year.
