dually tires

I'm looking to get a set of new tires very soon, I have a '04 f350 dually with stock 16: rims. Two months ago I had two tires detread. ( these were firestone size 245/75/16. The rest of the tires are a 10 ply Bridgstone tires. they were on the truck when I bought it two years ago. I've replaced the bad tires with BFG commerical e range tire same size. They are currently the inside tires on the rear, one on each side. My question is can I put on a more aggresive set of tires, Goodyear Wrangler 245/75/16. the tire dealer is saying it would be fine cause they are the same tire and with the mud flaps that are on the truck you can't tell. Will these affect the truck in any way or should I change out all six tires? The BFG have 2000 miles on them.

I run the same BFG commericals on the inside rears on my dually right now. Got caught in a bind an had an unrepairable flat, which put me in the need for two tires that day. I run a more aggressive BFG Rugged Trail on the outsides and up front right now. As long as they are the same size, you are ok.

Keep the like tires in the same location (i.e. both commericals inside, A/Ts outside) and you shouldn't have any issues. Should there be a little difference with the tread heights, it may cause the A/Ts to wear a little prematurely from carrying extra weight, but its not something to be concerned with that I have seen.

I'm running cooper discoverer at3 tires on my dually and I love them! Much better tread and ability off road than the rugged trails...best AT tire I've ever run.

You shouldn't mix new tires with old (example new inside, with the used on the outside of the dual) on a dually unless the "used" tire is practically new. The older tire will wear out considerably faster than it should.
