Best 20" Stock Replacement Tires

I have 30,000 miles on my stock 2008 F-250 Supercab Diesel. However, the stock 275/65/20 Goodyear AT/S tires are pretty worn and becoming a hazard on wet roads.

I work at a surface coal mine and I average about 200 miles a month off road on gravel/muddy haul roads so I need something that has excellent on and off road characteristics that can take the abuse of seeing gravel roads regularly. I ran across the new Dunlop Max Traction M/T tires in the stock size and they seem perfect for my use when reading the description. They are around $250 a tire which seems right on spot with my price range I was looking to spend. Has anyone tried these tires? How do they wear? Is there any other tire out there that would be a good tire choice? I have searched this site for information but about 95% of the threads out there are about huge 37-38" tall tires that cost $500+ a tire and I simply just do not want to spend that kind of money on a tire for a work truck.

The Toyo M/T is hands down the best tire especially if your offroad in the snow a lot. Check the internet you should be able to get a good price on some 285s. Your stock truck will clear them, and maybe ever 295s.

I can't find those for under $370 a tire. A little too much for my budget. Want to stay down in the $250 range if I can help it.


What about the General Grabber AT 2 tire?

Replaced my stockers with Toyo MTs (same size: 275/65/20) a few months ago. Work great. They are definitely a heavy tire and are a fair bit taller (but also a hair narrower) than the stockers (601 versus 609 revs per mile). Got mine siped for better wet weather traction. Probably dropped 2 MPG - though I haven't bothered to adjust my speedometer for the 8 fewer revs per mile.

In your price range and for what you want the Dunlops may be one of the best choices for you. I haven't run them myself but considered them this time around. I bought Nitto Trail Grapplers in a 295/65/20 instead.

I like the 295/65/20 tire size myself. If I got an aftermarket size, I believe that's what I would go with because it would fit about perfect. However, anything that size is going to be close to $400 a tire and to be able to afford that I would need to save up a couple more months! haha
