Steering tire sugesstions

Needing some input here. I've got a 2000 F-350 CC Dually 4x4, have 235-85/16's BFG All Terr. TA/KO's all around. I'm not getting the life I would expect to see on the fronts,and no I'm not rotating them which maybe some of the problem.
Got the feeling that they may be a bit soft for the front, what are you guys running and are you getting good life out of them? Thanks for any help you can give me.

I don't have a dually (See sig), but I'm running BFG TA KOs. I rotate them every 5000 miles. About the time they get to the rotation interval, the front ones get noisy.

I would recommend rotating them. By rotating them to a non-steering position at the correct intervals, gives them a break, if you will, from the wear/tear they get up front.

Rotation for a dually is front to front and rear to rear. Just swapping sides. No front crossed to back and back to front. Just the way it is on life of the wheels.

Are these load rate D or E tires? D tires are softer than E rated tires.

They are E's. Didn't think going front side to side would make any difference but I sure will try it.

I didn't know this. When I owned a dually they would swap my fronts to the back.

Maybe if you have all 6 wheels that are steel. Mine would look kinda funny with the steel wheels up front and a set of billet wheels turned inside out on the rear. Also, if you look in the owners manual that's what it says. Sucks for wear, but is what it is.
