32000 mi on these tires, lucky if I get 2000 mi more. 2010 f250 superduty supercab 6.4, with 2 riders weighs +- 8500 lbs. Hiway mileage, 6000 miles towing 9500 lb trailer. I thought I'd get at least 50000. comments about this and tire reccomedations appreciated.

Curious what pressure you're running front and back in your M/S2 tires. My new 2012 I just picked up has the same configuration and tires, same size.

Most of the reviews I've read have been glowing -- if you only get 34K miles on them, you may be entitled to approximately 1/2 pro-rated credit under the 70K mileage warranty.

when towing 30 ft trailor, 80 rear, 75 front. 75/70 everyday use. drivers door tag suggests 65 psi for my truck. 2010 250 6.4 diesel weighs in at 8500 lbs. add for trailor, passenger, etc , 1500lbs. of 32000 mi towed approx. 5000 mi. no off road. regular rotation at Costco and ford dealer. Costco uses nitrogen for tire inflation. had the tread depth checked at Costco last week, they say 5mm fr/ 7mm rear, wear marks are at 2mm, they claim i'm good for +_ 2 yrs. ford dealer has them at 3mm/5mm. I won't tow with tires wore down like that. They say it's their best tire. lt ms2 is at the top of the ratings.

Have Toyo AT II Xtreams in a +1.5 size. They are quieter than expected but I think my overall milage has dropped. However, we've already switched to winter fuel so that could be an issue.

About to go on a 2000 mile trip this weekend. Should be towing a 6000-7000 pound horse trailer back through the rockies. I'll let you know how it goes.
