Recommended 275/70r18 on stock Ford rim


I may be moving to Texas and am looking buying a small farm/ranch. I need a good all purpose A/T tire as my truck will be used for the property, daily work driver and towing a sizeable fifth wheel (14k GVW). Being a 2000, I don't want to go any bigger due to rubbing (spacers may be installed later). Cost is not an issue, just good traction/tread life and low noise.

I know a lot of us out there use our trucks like this and your opinions are welcome and appreciated.

F250 sold.

They're not the most "in" tire anymore, but one of the best A/T's out there is the BFG A/T. Good off road ability and good on the highway too. Also the best wearing A/T tire IMHO. I've never had a set last less than 50k miles, although I've never towed heavy on a regular basis with a set. That will naturally cut the life of any tire.
