Time for new tires

Well dad is up for new tires on the diesel and he knows he wants to stay with an AT. he has the 275-65R/20 Goodyear Wranglers on it and he and i neither one like them...they suck on dry pavement and they are about dangerous on wet pavement. the only reason he would get them again is because they are cheap. I've never heard anything bad about the BFG ATs but have never riden in a truck with them.

for the most part he stays on the road but we do tend to go down some muddy trails so they do have to preform well offroad while still getting decent on road life.


So what do yall say? and don't think that the BFG's and the Wranglers are the only options. voice your opinions on any tire just please keep it to ATs not MTs.

Currently running Nitto Terra Grapplers on mine. Was impressed with handling in our recent snow storm too!

Give the Kumho KL78's a try, I have about 1500 miles on mine and love them so far, including a 6 hour drive, and a little time in some slick alabama clay

Just put a set of Goodrich AT's on my F350. I had very good service from them on my old Ranger. Good road manners, okay traction off road, good on a wet road. Last a lot longer than mud tires, I never could get more than about 20k miles out of mud tires. On the Ranger, I replaced the front AT's at 60k miles, shortly before trading it off, still had the original rears. They'll probably wear faster on the F350, but I find them to be a good compromise for a truck that mainly on the road, but I do take across the farm on occasion. With the street rugged trails, it would stick real easy.

Only fuss I have about the AT's was the price. $1350 for a set, but then I had to buy six of them...
