Tire info / Tire Reccs ??

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum but I really didn't notice a good spot for it.

I'm basically a life long BFG/AT/MT tire guy. With a Bronco, Jeep, F-150, and ram 1500 in my past.

About 6 months ago I acquired my first diesel a '99 f350 4x4.

It needs tires desperately.

I had someone mention to me recently that Fords really wear tires better on tires with a continual tread on the inner and out tread lines.

Maybe the similar to the BFG commercial or Rugged Trail ? I have Firestone's right now with continual treads but they stink off of paving.

I use my truck as a daily driver with some occasional towing of a 15k boat and trailer. So size change is not too much of an option for me but I'm more concerned with the tread selection. I do have the truck off road and in 4wd 1-2 times per month over a yearly average.

Are the 350 diesels horrible on BFG AT's ?

Any help, advice or reccs are greatly appreciated....

Thanks from the Newbie

I would have to say that as long as your alignment is good and you keep them rotated and properly inflated, you shouldn't have any problems. Of course, a nasty mud tire isn't going to last as long as something less aggressive

Thanks for the welcome. I did fail to mention that I have a std rear axle not a dually. I'm not even too sure what to call it other than a singly.

thanks again
