Just wondering, what are the best stock tires to put on my f350, 265/75r16?

It depends on who responds but I think these are very comparable and pretty much the best for an all terrain tire in that size.

There is no "BEST TIRE" that is like saying who has the "BEST HOUSE" everyone has their favorites. There are so many variables, how you drive, where you drive, what kind of vehicle , 2wd or 4wd, lifted, lowered, etc.........
I wanted a good highway tire and a solid platform for towing heavy, I found the Michelin LTX M/S always rated near or at the top of all the testing I have looked at. Many are getting 80K out of a set. You need to buy what's best for you and only you can say what that is.
Good Luck

I really like BFG All Terrains I run them on both my trucks and have no complaints they last at least 60,000 miles and are a great all around tire with minimal road noise

I prefer the BFG A/T but I will probably be putting the Goodyear Wrangle A/T back on my truck in a few months because of price. There aren't a lot of options in the 275/65/20 size and those that are available are expensive. It looks like I will get upwards of 45,000 of hard abused miles out of the Goodyears and they have been a good traction tire so far.

When I look at $144 per tire vs. $316 per tire I can't honestly believe that the BFG will net me 90-95K miles in order to pay for themselves. If the economy was in better shape I would go for the BFG anyway but right now that $700 difference needs to be saved for the future.

I completely agree. On a 4wd, I love the BFG at's and michelin LTX. On my 2wd I have now, I run goodyear at/d series because they are VERY quiet and load range E.

This is like asking "what is the best paint color".
