Question NEW TIRE Suggestions

2000 7.3 2WD Excursion needs some new tires. I wasn't happy with the last set Michelins. I'm the original owner...Live in Florida. I mostly drive local city driving and the occasional 300-500 mile trips dropping/ picking up the kids from college dorms. Any recommendations?

I run Cooper Discoverer AT3s (285/75/16) 10plys. Seem to hold up decent on/off road.

They are a semi aggressive off road tire with nice road manners.

You may want to run a nice road tire if you aren't planning on trails and mud.

I run firestone destination A/T's and love them. With that said If I was running on road only I'd go with Bridgestone Duller H/T's we put them on my mom's Denali and it rides great.

I've run the following tires on the 00 Excursion,
265 GY Wranglers
265 Bridgestone Ravo's E load
295 BFG ATKO's
285 Michelin LTX

Order of best to worse
1. Michelin
2. BFG
3. Wranglers
4. Ravo's

My opinion were the Ravo's were absolute junk, wore out fast and never had very good traction. For the price of these tires A VERY BAD IDEA.

The F2&350 both have Michelins on them now the smaller truck LTX and the bigger truck MS2's. I would have to say the MS2's seem to have as much if not more traction than the LTX's. Again 4 wheels spinning in the back should allow more traction than just two. Also limited slip in the dually and non limited slip in the 250.

The 02 X needs tires so leaning towards the Michelins or BFG's but I can get the Destinations at cost from a friend.

I have run Destination AT's and was very impressed with traction and durability.

What about size? Just bought our excursion and it needs new tires. wanting to get tallest tires possible without installing a lift. shows about 18mpg avg. right now. hoping taller tires and a good chip will improve that.

My excursion is 2wd, I run 285/75/16 BFGoodrich Rugged Terrain T/A. They have above average road noise and suck in the mud. Great mileage so far and wet traction is great.

If i would buy again I would go with Michelin's or BFG AT KO's.
