truck tires

Hello, I had a blowout on my home from work tonight which leads me to think what is your favorite brand of tires? I have a F150 Screw with the ecobeast. It has Goodyears on it and I haven't been to impressed. I had Michelin tires on a Honda Ridgeline and those were great but pricy. I do mainly highway driving and use to tow our 23b.

Thanks in advance

I have had 2 sets of Cooper Discoverer tires on previous trucks, a 2000 F150 xten cab 4x4 and a Sport Trac 4x4. Good tire, quiet, good all weather traction as well. these are not mud tires, more for highway use.

It all really depends on your price range. I really have liked my Michelin LTX M&S. Great in the snow and have towed great this summer. I will likely get them again. Firestone Destination a/t are awesome too. Had them on an explorer and a 2001 ram 1500. Just put firestone destination LE 2 on our Honda pilot and will be taking it on a 1700 round trip from WV to FL in 3 weeks. Great reviews on tire rack.

Currently running Cooper Discoverer AT3 and I am very happy. They are an off road tire, have a more aggressive look and tread pattern, and will likely not have the life span of some highway tires. I have also had Michelin LTX in the past and really liked them too. This time I let looks a budget win out. Coopers at ~$650 a set vs Michelin at ~$900 for LT265 75r16 I went for it.

I run the Goodyear Silent Armor professional grade E Load range om my 2500 and also used them on my 1500. They are slightly aggressive looking but still relatively quiet on the highway..

I like BFGoodrich All Terrain KO's for a truck tire. They are agressive, pretty quiet, and a long lasting tire IMO. About a grand for a set of 4 285/75 16E's, but worth every penny IMO

Man!! You guys are getting great prices. I, unfortunately, have 20" wheels, so my prices are higher. I don't need a LT rated tire. I put max pressure in mine per sidewall, for towing and away I go. The other 95% of the time I run at 35 psi per door recs. Getting 19.5 mpg highway, long trips, and about 15 around town.

I have Michelin LTX tires on my TV, 18" tires and like them a lot. However, with a little over 20,000 miles, doesn't look like they're going to have a lot of mileage in them.

I replaced my BFGs with the Cooper AT3s. ( discount tire ) Much better performance and tread wear. I had to wait a few days for them to get the N rated load tires. ( N. ?? I think )

The 20"+ wheels make a huge difference in cost.

My wife's Highlander had an up repairable flat -- cost $225 for a P rated 245 55r19. That is a huge reason when I changed my wheels I stayed with 16" although 20" look better IMO, but my truck is a "tow vehicle" primarily and I didn't want to dilute the final drive ratio or pay so much more for tires.
