Need new tires. Any recommendations?

Well it is finally time for me to replace my tires. I now have almost 69,000 miles on the tires that came on my 08 Lariat F250 Diesel Crew Cab 4x4 truck new. They are the Continental M+S Truck tires LT 275/70R 18. May go back with same tires as I got almost 70,000 miles on these. Almost all of my driving is on the highway with very little off road so I want the highway, smoother riding and higher mileage tires. Also considering the Michelin LTX M/S2 tires. Been pricing tires around to get the best price. The Ford dealer advertises they meet other prices but you have to bring in an ad or something with the exact same item number as the tires they carry.

OK but I would need for them to be installed on my truck. Don't want to order tires and then try to find someone to install them. Creates issues if there is a problem. I live in the Tampa Bay Florida area.

michelin ltx ms/2 same tire your looking at, costco if you have one near you, it's hard to make a case for any tire after a 70,000 mi tire. I put the michelin on my 250 18 inch rims, good ride, inflated to 75 lbs, were you useing max inflation?

I'm a huge fan of nitto dura grapplers.. its been known to make it 85k miles.. I purchased a new set for a truck I just sold, in 17", and paid $230 each for them.. I can't say enough good about that tire.

Michelins LTS MS2

I just swapped my original set of 275/65R20 Goodyears at 50K miles for a set of these Michelins. Had the truck recently in driving rain to moderate snow. These tires preform brilliantly. I aired them to 72 psi up front and 70 in the rear. The whole tires footprint hits the road. Granted my heavy F350 helps a bit. Having a tuner I need good rubber when accerating in heavy rain. These tires hold their own.

I kept checking Craig's list and finally found a brand new set for $550. I guess the guy just had to put a lift and bigger tires on his 2012 F0250. His loss was my gain as compared to buying these new for $1400. I love these tires so far and expect no issues in any climate.

Good luck

Here's another Nitto vote. I have only ran the Terra Grapplers but they are great. Good traction, quiet on the highway and are wearing well with the weight I subject them to on a regular basis.

Mine - 94.5 F250 ZF5: Basics w/a few extras, DIY bumper, steps and exhaust, AFEII, D60, PMF 2.25 RSK, V-codes
Hers - 04 GM 2500 CCSB 4x4: LB7, EFI Live by KW, 2" Lift, MBRP 4" dp back
Backup - 98 GM 1500 ECSB 4x4: 6.5, straight pipe, K+N filter, 495km w/original pump, trans & t-case
