TV tire recommendations?

The factory Goodyear Wranglers on my F150 are beginning to give me issues at only 33,000 miles so I might be changing them out soon. Does anyone have any recommendations they can pass along? Also, what are your feeling about upgrading to a D or E range tire on a 1/2 ton truck? Is it overkill? Thanks

I replaced my Wranglers with Michelin LTX MS2's on my 2010 F150 and I am very impressed with them and their weight ratings are in excess of the axle ratings anyways. Quiet on the highway and pretty good bite in snow. Tread probably is not aggressive enough for off road which would entail more highway road noise.

So do you have the factory tire minder system. Hi does that work with tires that have to have more pressure than a passenger tires. Does the system freak out because it thinks your tires are over pressurized and at what pressure does it think the tires are too low

I just replaced my factory Michelin road tires with Bridgestone dueler REVO II. And love them.

I used them on my 3/4ton suburban for over 50k miles before I sold that vehicle and bought my Ram.

The tires are not mudders or rock crawlers by any means, but they are quiet, tread is aggressive enough for gravel roads, snow, and rain. They stay balanced. They are about $50/set cheaper than Michelin ATII or MS2 tires.

just my 2cents.

You can train the sensors to accept a higher pressure.

Do you want light truck or passenger tires?

btw...I don't list a "D" or "E" rated tire for that vehicle in that size unless you go up to LT's

10 years ago I would have said go with LTs. But today's "P" rated truck/SUV tires are not the same wobbly "P" rated tires on your soft and cushy Buick Le Sabre, or that came stock on Suburbans 20 years ago. They are a tougher tire that usually takes a higher PSI and can handle trailers and light off roading very well.

Your X23B is only 200# GVWR than my X20E. I have "P" rated truck/suv tires that will take up to 51 PSI. I run them at 45 psi when towing and it's as stable as any set of LTs I've ever owned.

My current tires were on the truck when I bought it, they are Kuhmos. I've had 2 sets of Firestone Destination LEs on my old Trailblazer during the 8 years I had it. They don't take as much air but I think they are an excellent tire and far better than the Kuhmos. Since I'll need tires before winter I may buy the Firestones again.
