Mine are E Rated 10 ply tires, and I have no complaints what so ever with them.

I prefer BFG and Michelin tires. Personally have not been impressed Bridgestones and Firestones I have had in the past.

Another vote for Cooper Discoverer AT/3's. Awesome tires. I have 24K on my tires so far and still many more miles left in them. I rotate every 4K also.

I've got Firestone Transforce HT tires on my half ton truck, and I love them. I believe they have about 35,000 miles on them now, and there is still plenty of tread left. They've always rode great on the highway.

Thanks for your responses everyone, I got the Michilen LTX MS2 10 ply tires. SO now my question is do you inflate them to what your door says or over inflate them when towing? I read on this forum or the F150 forum I go to that some over inflate compared to what the door says. What do you do?

I never go over what the door says. I used to inflate the rear tires (10 ply) to 80psi when not towing but the center of the tread was wearing faster than the tire edges (TOYO A/T). I now inflate both front and rear to 55psi, then up the pressure to 70psi when towing my 5er. My 5er pin weight is about 1800# loaded.
My door says 80psi rear and 55psi front.

The pressures on the door jamb are for the best performance and handling of that vehicle with OE size and style tires.

Personally, I run my Tahoe's at 65psi (load range D) in the rear and 50 in the front. Come winter time, I reverse that when I have the plow on.

NEVER inflate a tire past the MAXIMUM PSI # on the side wall. Most of your passenger car (P series) tires are up to 44psi, and light truck (LT series) tires from 45psi in a Load range C, up to 80psi in a load range E tire.

I'm presently running with a set of Mastercraft Courser HTR LT tires (by Cooper) and very satisfied with them since purchasing them 3 years ago.

I look at the ratings on TireRack.com and Consumer Reports. Then I shop, trying to get the best deal on a top 5 tire. Michelin and Firestone are usually 1 and 2 but pricey. I've gotten Pirelli and Yokohama, the last 2 sets on my truck, $800 out the door both times (E load rated).

I ran the Pirellis at 35 (per the door sticker), the tire store suggested 41 for the Yokohamas.

I've been running Falken Wildpeaks on my Toyota Tacoma for the past year and love them. I get great handling in all weather conditions and so far the tread looks great. A local tire shop recommended them.
