I put fallen wildpeaks at on my f250. They seem to be lasting longer than the tires that came from the factory. They are quiet. I tow a trailer about 2 to 3 days a week and they do fine with that also.

Both Toyo and Falken are generally seen as good tires esp for heavy duty trucks.

To avoid the oncoming onslaught of which tire do I choose. Did you do a search on the forum? This subject comes up weekly and you will see people love and hate the same tire, so it would be a generally safe assumption to stick with a large name brand. BFG, Yokohoma, Cooper, mickey Thompson, Toyo, General, hancook, Falken, Michelin, Hercules,Goodyear etc... I run the BFG AT KO2 and I have already seen some recent post about how much they hate bfgs yet this is my third set with zero problems lol.

My dad is running cooper stt maxx on his dodge 2500 diesel, my brother is running hancook ats, im running bfg at2, my wifes Subaru has general grabber at2s all with no issues. The next day on google you can find people who are trying to sue a company for the issues they had with their X brand of tires etc.

I have been putting mastercrafts on my trucks for years. I get about 55k out of a set of the ATX's and pay about 600 for a new set mounted and balanced.

Hard to justify another 300 bucks for the same kind of life span.

Nitto Ridge is going to be my next choice. Toyo RTs are on now, great wearing/riding tire I'm just wanting to try something else.


AT II seem a little tame with regards to traction especially when off road on a farm or back in the hunting area.

Currently run Destination A/T and I get 10k -15k out of them. I do go on some unmaintained roads that are covered by sharp jagged fist sized rocks or sharp chiseled granite. I think the ATs will last forever on highways or county maintained gravel roads, but not extreme use. I bring this up because of your farm work.

Someone recommended military grade tires, but I drew a dead end on tires that would fit my truck that would hold up good.

I've greatly reduced going on these trails and my tire lifespan is greatly increased.

I went with the goodyear AT Adventure and have been pleased thus far. You probably already know this, but confirm the load rating before installing. I had a shop install a set of four and noticed my tire pressure light was on when I got home. Figured i'd get the compressor out and add air, Something told my to look at the tire and sure enough, they put the lower load index tires on. Thankfully they allowed me to bring the truck back and only charged me the difference.

Iíve got 57,000 miles on Toyo Open Country AT 2 tires and they look like they may have another 10k left in them. Decent traction off road and quiet on the highway.
These tires made it through ground-zero after Hurricane Harvey. My other vehicles all had multiple flats from the debris.
The Toyos are great.
