Need better traction with my tires?

I have a 04 King Ranch F 250 diesel. I have 275/70/18 Continental TR Tires on the truck. They suck. They are fine on the highway and good for towing in that street stuff. My truck is only 2wd so when I get to any dirt or sand with my Trailer and Jeep the truck gets no traction and will get stuck. I was looking for a 4wd f250 but this truck I found was so nice and mint condition so I bought it. Is there a AT tire that would help me in the sand in dirt with my 2WD.

Well, the Continental TR tires are really just a highway tire. Most any true A/T tire will yield superior performance off road. I've personally dealt with a few A/T's. (BFG-wouldn't reccomend, Nitto-OK, but wore out quickly, Hankook-excellent so far)

I would just reccomend that you do your homework. Research yields more results than the name on the side of a tire. The only thing I would say to "make sure of", is to be sure you get "E" rated tires, especially since you use your truck to tow.

I have Toyo AT's on my truck and they seem to work great in the dirt. Been very happy with their performance on and off the road.
