Michelin makes a good truck tire, unfortunately they're not much for addressing weather cracking of the sidewalls and bead area of their tires. Had to replace 2 LTX/AS2's on my Ram because of deep cracking in the bead area. Dealer inspected them and said sorry, he couldn't do anything as far as adjustment because they were 4 years old. And, I haven't seen a tire as prone to this as bad as Michelin seems to be.

Hi have a 2008 F-150 towing a 29bhs last summer I put a set of. Tokyo Ltd 275/65R18 open country on our truck. They have work out great a bit expensive but I believe worth it. They have a agresive design but do not have that bad road noise . This was a huge concern for my wife who uses this truck for her daily driver. Also it has performed very well in the snow. I hope that this helps. Good luck.

P.S. they ran about. $214.00 per tire and have a 60,000 tread life
