Best Tires?

Hi PowerStrokers;

I just bought myself a '05 Excursion 6.0L with 100K on it. The body is in mint condition, so is the interior.

Tires. I will want to put new times on her. What are the best tires for long distances of towing? I won't be doing hardly any off-roading, and it currently is wearing BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A's.

What do you recommend for towing? I want a combination of quiet, good load capacity, long tread life, and fuel economy.

Thanks in advance for your input!

- John

I have the Michelin ltx ms2 and I would recommend them to anyone who wants what you requested above. They balance great, ride smooth, provide great on road traction, and have a 70K warranty to boot.

I run Hankook Dynapro ATM's in a 10ply. I have had multiple sets on different vehicles and been really happy with them.
