What tires will come on my new truck??

LT275/70BSWAT18 is listed on my order form. Dealer states they don't know what make they are. I'm assuming either Continental or Michelin. Just wondering if anyone has got a new truck recently, what tires came on it?

All of these horrible Michelin reports surprise me. I wonder if there is a quality difference between the AT's and the M&S. I have been running the MS and now the MS2's for years and I love them. We also use them at work on all of our ambulances in severe conditions with great results. They are smooth, quiet, durable and now with the newer tred design, much better traction. I have recommended them to several people and they all love them also. However most people here say the AT's are junk. I sure hope I don't have to buy new tires for a new truck.

I am on my 3rd set of the Michelin AT/2s. I have bought take offs from the dealer. Usually around $1000 for a set of four with rims, I sell the rims for $400-$500 and I've got new tires for $500-$600 for the 275-65-20s. I can't buy a replacement tire from a tire dealer for that price.

I got 28,000 miles from the first set with some serious towing. The second set ran 45,000 miles but had more highway mileage in that set. The 3rd set is at 30,000 and still has 6/32 of tread left. So they will probably hit that 35,000 mile number before I swap them out.

On my 6.0L trucks I tried, Cooper, Conti, Goodyear, and Toyo. None of them gave me more than 30,000 miles of use for an AT. So I think the Michelins are doing as well as any of the previous brands I've tried on Superduty trucks. These are heavy trucks with a lot of torque.

The only thing I like about the Michelin LT tires is they offer a tread wear warranty. Which of course I couldn't use because I rotated my tires and didn't have proof of a "certified" Michelin service center do it. My dealership said they wore perfectly, the only problem was they only had 30K on them! I went with Bridgestone tires and they have 40K on them and I am getting ready for a new set soon.

I'm betting Michelins as well. All 18's I see coming through work (upfitter) are Michelins.

Just picked up my truck with 18s and michellins. Horrible tires, I have some serious snow right now and I get stuck every time I pull onto a side road. Ill be looking to buying some new tires over the next month. If anyone wants to buy some almost new michellins let me know, only 300 miles on them.
