Need Replacement Tires?

Ok guys, i'm in need of buying new tires soon for my truck. And i'm not sure what to get as a replacement. I have a set of Dayton tires on there now, don't make fun bought the truck with them on there.
I do a lot of highway driving, about 40 one way to work everyday. I don't do any offroading ever, so mud tires are out. I'm want to stay with the factory size to get descent fuel milage. So i need a tire that has relative good tread wear and does good in the rain, snow and ice. Any suggestions would be great.

Hankook or Firestone have real good AT tires up to 10 ply. You probably have 235 or 265 R 16 I assume. I tell you, it sounds like too much but if a guy would rotate his tires at least every 2 oil changes, tires would last so much longer. My brother in law got 92,000 miles off of a set of Goodyear AT's in Louisiana on his 2002 F150. Granted it is alot lighter truck but he rotated religiously. Keep about 65 psi in them at all times. It will keep your foootprint alot flatter to give you a more even wear. The tire says 80 psi "MAX". Thats what most people run and they replace tires at 25,000 because the center of the tire is gone and the sides are still 1/2 tread. Good luck in your search. Tell us what you choose.

I love my hankook ATM tires. Great treadwear, awesome in the snow and mud for what they are, and great wet weather capability. I have them on both my 2007 F250 V10 and my 2000 7.3 - nice and quiet.

check 'em out!

Check out BFGs commercial tires, I ran them on my Dodge and was impressed with them. I had Michelins on it before that.

Well i was lookin around at tires and was curious if anybody has tried this ProComp AT. They look fairly descent and claim to have a 50000 tread life. Anybody know about these thing?
