Shopping for new TV tires

My Tundra came with Michelin LTX A/S tires. 265/65/18. I see a lot of TV's (especially those with 5er's) going with the LTX A/T2.

My OEM's have done fine but they are rated for just 43# max air and just wondered if I should go with the the 10 ply, E rated A/T2's. Have been looking at reviews and some people love them and some hate them.

Also, what other brands are you using instead of the Michelin's? I'm pulling a 26RLS with a dry weight of 6400/lbs.

Only use Michelin myself. Never had a problem with them and I get really good mileage out of them

You probably don't need a LR E, but going to an LT (at least the LR C) will be a little more stable when towing. We had the P rated "wiggle" when towing our last tt with our '10 Chevy 1500, swapped to a LR C and was a night and day difference.

Look into a 275/65/18 also. Very minimal difference in size and a few more tire choices. And last I knew the 275's were cheaper by a fair amount vs the 265!!!

I bough a set of the Cooper A/T3's for our '10-1500 and was very happy with them! Awesome performance in all conditions (never tried mud though), including numerous snowstorms while traveling to Northern Michigan or to the bush outside the Soo, Ontario, Canada area to go snowmobiling. They were wearing very well the 11k miles we had them before stepping up to our HD. They are on the short list of tires I am looking at to out in our HD this late fall/ early winter to get rid of the crap GY SRA's!

I have had 2 sets of cooper AT3 on my 2 trucks and like their performance in wet, dry and snow conditions They also have deeper tread from the start which I also like

I'm using Cooper Discovery AT3 Load Range E and they have been great. I'm a Michelin fan though as well...

My 2500 came with Michelin LTX tires and I swapped them out that same week. Being in Manitoba I drive a lot of icy/snow covered roads. Went with duratracs as that's what I had on my previous truck. I know it hurts my MPG but I love the look and the are awesome in the winter.

I ended up putting some BFG AT KO2's on my Dodge Ram, and I really like them quite a bit. They handle great in all weather conditions, even when off road. Being a somewhat aggressive all-terrain I do get a little more road noise than my previous P rated "truck" tires that came stock on the truck, but it's very minimal.

Looks wise, they are the most aggressive style without going to a true mud terrain which wears horribly on the highway. Check the reviews, and you will see these tires are the real deal. Great traction, and wears great too.

Plus they are LT's so load capacities are better for towing. When I purchased them I hadn't yet bought the TT but knew one was in our future, so for me that was a primary consideration.

The only thing not great about the tires is the price. You can find cheaper, but I'm not sure you will find a better tire for the dollar. In my case, I bought from my local Discount Tire and took advantage of rebates plus free money for using my DT card plus discount from buying a new set of tires for both my truck and the wife's car. Don't worry, if you are like me and don't like cards, you can use for the purchase and then pay in full when the bill comes in.

Damn that's a nice tire. Not much more than the Michelin LTX highway tire either. I don't really need all of that tread though...tough call.

I had about 8 months on a set of BFG AT's on my '07 2500 when I traded it in on my '15 2500. They were very good tires. Great for plowing snow, reasonably quiet, and seemed to be wearing well. The '15 came with Michelin LTX AT's. Absolutely love them. Equal in snow to the BFG's - don't let the looks fool you. Even quieter than the BFG's. And if they wear anywhere near as good as the Michellins on dw's Equinox I will be ecstatic. I would recomend either one.
