Need Tires soon. What to buy?

hello,

I"m picking up my truck this friday and it's going to need tires at some point in the next few months. It currently has the stock tires on it and i'm looking at an all terrain tire or mud terrain tire next.

I have BFG All Terrain Ko's on my F150 now and like them.

Just curious what you guys recommend for the heaver truck whem compared to my F150 and what tires wear better than others.

Thanks

I love my new Hankook Dynapro ATM's! They now cost a bit more than the BFG's, but from what others are saying, they last a lot longer, and have much better snow/ice traction . Just don't waste your time with any of the GY tires, because the sidewalls are notoriously squishy with these heavy trucks. Make sure you get an E rated 10 ply tire, and you should be able to get good wear out of them as long as other things are in working order

I run Firestone Destination a/t, use to have bfg at ko's but they were just about useless in rain,snow or ice or off road for that matter. These are priced lower too and i think they out perform them in everyway. The tread cleans out very easily which i beleive is a huge plus.

Ok, so I think I’m down to BFG KM2 MT, Pro-Comp X-tream AT, Good Year Duratrac, or BFG AT KO
What do you guys recommend?
285/70/17 is the size I’d like to go with

Dynapro is a great year round tire I used on my 2002 F350. I am using Wrangler Duratrac on my 2011 F350- great tire for snow, off-road etc.

I had the Pro-Comp Extreme AT's until Monday. I hated them from day one. Very humpty-bumpty from 45 to 60, only got 31,000 out of them (may have been able to squeeze another 2 thousand out of them?), they were very slick on wet pavement and did not go good in mud or snow. I had them re-balanced 3 or 4 times and they never rode good at all.

I switched to the Goodyear Wrangler Dura Trac's, 285/75/16 Monday and so far I love them. Great ride, hardly no noise (compared the the AT's) and they go good in the snow and mud. They do feel a little more squirley than the others for a 10 ply tire though. I'm going to go up to 75LBS of air in them and see if they get any better, but other than that they seem like a good tire.

2004 F-250 CC Lariat FX4, 285/75/16 Goodyear Wrangler Dura Trac's, Full EGR Delete, ARP headstuds, Swamp's 58V FICM, SCT Livewire with Custom Tunes by Innovative Diesel and Quick Tricks Automotive, 4 inch stainless straight piped exhaust, High Idle Mod, Smoke Switch, more mods to come.
