I need some tire input. Looking for tire reviews.

Hey guys,

I'm looking for new tires for my 2wd F-250. I'm wanting an aggressive street tire or an all terrain tire that has good tread life and functions well. Must be load range E. Stock size.

Here is the list so far:

Firestone Transforce AT (recommended by the local tire shop)

BFG Rugged Terrain

Uniroyal HDT

Hankook AT

These are suggestions dad got from the tire shop. I'd appreciate any input on these or other suggestions. Cooper, Toyo, etc?

I have the Hankook A/T's on my Explorer. They're awesome. I've seen a lot of people on here say that they like them on their pickup trucks as well

I loved my terra grapplers on my tahoe, and a buddy of mine had a set on his f250 and lasted like 70k miles. Another friend of mine has a set on his dirty max and likes them.

We have two hankook mts on the back of it since I always used to get stuck and they have been a good tire. It doesn't go offroad anymore, though.

I have terra grapplers on my Titan, and they rock! But they don't make them in a 235/85/16 unfortunately

We had the Hankooks on our H3 and they were pretty damn good tires, especially for the price!! Nitto tires look oh so good but their milage sucks ***, I am running Interco tires now and have had great luck thus far.

+1 For Hankook Dynapro ATM's not AT's. I had a set on my last rig and you couldn't tell they had 50K+miles on them. Just put a set of 295/70-17's on my Excursion. Hoping to get well over 60k out of them (five tire rotation). I also have a set of Dynapro MT's on my truck, but it doesn't see enough miles in a year to really matter. I like them a lot as well, but if you are going to be on pavement most of the time I would recommend the ATM over the MT by far.

Cheers,

Brew
