Need advice on new tires

I have a 2008 F-350 SRW FX4 6.4l Crew Cab, Tire size is LT275-70-18. I have narrowed it down to this tire.
BFGoodrich
All-Terrain T/A KO2
LT275/70R18

Anyone else used this tire? Pros and/or cons?

I tow a 2012 Sandpiper 265SAQ

I run same brand as a 285/75r16 on my 1999 f250 and they handle/wear great. Got them last year almost 19k on them and they've done great in -10 and 105 towing a 5th wheel so they work well in my opinion.

*Generally speaking as long as you choose a name brand tire more than likely your ok. Toyo, Nitto, BFG, Falken, Kumho, Michelin, Bridgestone, Cooper etc...

Also if you tow don't always assume E rated has more capacity than D rated. Something I learned from just looking at tires. Some D rated had more capacity than E it was really strange.

-99 F250, 4X4, 6.0 trans cooler, 08 mirrors, 05 grill, AIS Intake, lvl kit, JW Vbody, cncfab hpop lines, WW2.

04 Excursion Modified, 04 F350 Modified, 06 F350 Modified

Interested in learning something new?

I have those on a 2002 CRV. No it is nowhere near as heavy as the F350 but I will say, they are great tires. They appear to be wearing well. I rotate them every oil change and it helps. They do very well in wet and snow. The CRV is a relatively light vehicle but I had it loaded down with 2000lbs of tools and cable and it still handle very solid. They have good road manners and are not too noisy at highway speeds. Probably more so on the larger tire. The CRV is 215/75/15 So you will have more contact patch, ie. more noise. But they are very reasonable as far as a AT tire goes.

I love them. However, for my 2011 F350, I will probably be looking at something a little different as there are lots of good "cheaper" tires available. But you cannot go wrong with BFGoodrich TA K02s in my opinion.

I would suggest looking at "simpletire.com" This will be my 3rd set of tires from them. Great prices (cheapest Ive found), FREE shipping (thats key) and good selection.

Happy hunting!

Agree with the exception of Toyo. I had a set delaminate on the sidewalls nearly brand new and Toyo would not do anything for me. Their customer service was run by a few teenagers, it was pathetic. Never bought Toyo again after that experience, some kid told me i was running the tire pressure too low and damaged the sidewalls. Tires were aired up to spec and truck was only ever driven on the street so would be no need to air down.

I would avoid Toyo as well. 3 of 4 tires have had tread separation. They won't admit its a bad batch or anything.
