Tire suggestions

What tires do you guys suggest for my X? I pull a 9000# TT so I guess I need to keep that in mind. I don't do any off roading either.

Take a look at Firestone Transforce HT's. We have good luck with them in your type applications.

There's a link at the bottom of this page to a photo of the tire.

I love my Toyo M/T's, had no problem pulling a trailor with them. I don't think you need to spend all the money on them though if you aren't gonna need them for off roading or mud.

I put Toyo Open Country A/Ts (265/R75-16) on my F350. They are 10 ply, Load Range "E". I air them up to 80 psi when I tow my 12K 5th wheel. They work very well for me. I don't off-road either.

Just offering as a suggestion.

Toyo MTs would be my last choice. The dont wear very well, and they arent that good in the mud either. And on top of that they are too expensive. Go with an all-terrain type tire, such as the Toyo open country A/ts suggested above, just make sure you find one with load range E.

First off, getting 60k out of a mud terrain tire is very rare, and I dont think I know anyone else who has gotten that much out of a Toyo MT, much less any other M/T tire. Secondly, I didn't mention the Load range of the M/T. And third, what about the price? For the price, you could afford to go through 3 sets of no name brand A/T tires. And ask anyone who actually uses them for their purpose (mudding) they dont do too well compared to REAL M/T tires.

Ive also had good luck with these tires on my Dodge.

I was pondering the idea of some new rims as well. Can I get a good tire with E load range on a set of 20's? I really like the Jesse James Black Widows!

Go with Yokohama Geolanders

I just bought my second set of Yokohama Geolander HT-S. They ride very well and wear pretty good. Good road tire rated as a "best" catagory. Not quite a Michelin, but who the hell has that kind of money these days. $ for $ the Yoko's are a good buy. They also have an All terrain version of the same tire, but not likely to wear as well. DO NOT go below the Load E with hauling the TT. Not worth the risk for $75-$100 savings on the tires (4). I have used the Firestone Transforce HT, but did not wear as well as the Yoko's. BTW the Yoko's Geolanders tire code for Load E is G053. Sold at NTB, Discount Tire, and Online as well.

Hope you have good luck. One thing I have noticed since my last tire purchase is $$$ are going up ---- alot.
