New Highway Specific Tires Question.
So I just received a new job offer last week and it is one that will require a lot of traveling with in a region. (Finally some good news for me, sucks being jobless for the past 8months)
The company does not offer a company car, but provides a vehicle allowance. So my current situation would entail me using my truck to travel. I could buy another vehicle but financially that would not be smart at this current time.
So my plan is to make my truck as fuel efficient as possible. Right now it sits on 33s and leveled. but is missing the front lip because of my plow mount.
Today i tried putting the lip back on to help but that didnt work out like planned.
My next step is putting my stock 16" rims back on the truck with either some 285 or 265 highway specific tires to reduce rolling resistance and be quiet and efficient. I also plan on keeping my truck leveled.
I need some help and recommendations on good Highway all season tires, that would be great on the highway, and still be able to be good in the snow for when i plow in the winter. And they have to be E load rated for when I tow and haul.
Appreciate all the help in advanced.
