Tire help!

I'm currently running Toyo Open Country A/T's in 275 65 18 load range e. They look awesome on the truck (different than stock size so it gives the truck a nice stance) do great in snow, sand and mud but they do not last. I tow daily and the rear tires wear out within months. Unfortunatly they are also way overpriced. Even an extra charge for the white lettering which I like!

I honestly don't have time to rotate tires every few weeks. I have been driving f.350 powerstrokes for many years towing the same trailer and have never had this problem until I bought Toyo's. Are the Toyo's super soft rubber or something?

Can you recommend a better priced tire with the same performance as the Toyo's? I have gone through 3 sets in two years.... Hankook rf10's? I had those once but the truck they were on was totaled and I never got much experience with them.

Thank you for the post jwsland. We would be happy to help you select the best tire model for your needs.

How many miles are you typically driving per year? How often do you go off-road?

I'm on the road all day long, bouncing around, local driving for lawn mowing and landscaping. I'd like an all terrain tire since I have to take the trailer to the dump often and it usually muddy. I never go "off roading" for fun.

Thank you for the additional information.

An excellent model to look into is the Falken Wild Peak A/T. This model is tough in all conditions and lasts if taken care of. The 275/65-18 also has white letters and comes with a 50K mile tread life warranty. Here's the link with more details.
