New Tire Suggestion

Currently rolling on Toyo OC 35x12.50-20 on 20x10 Fuel Hostages. Looking to go for a more high performance road tire than AT or MT since I don't offroad this truck much anymore...

Any suggestions?

EDIT: This question is for my 2010 F250.

Of course as soon as I hit "POST" I realized I should have put this in the Wheels and Tire section...

To be clear, I am talking about tires for my F250. I don't tow my trailer anymore with it since I got the 350.

Does your door really say heavy black smoke?

No worries. I should have made that clear in the OP.

Thank you for your recommendation Heavy_GD. Michelin shows the Defender LTX M/S as being made in a 35/12.50R-20 size as well as 295/65R-20. This tire is well known for it's smooth quiet ride on the road, plus it is M/S rated.

Send us a PM if you would like pricing and availability.

Just in case, here is a link to the other tires we stock in 35/12.50R-20. I know you're trying to go away from a dedicated A/T or M/T, but the Hybrid Nitto Ridge Grappler and Nitto Exo Grappler have been very popular for HD applications and deliver a quiet ride.

Hey, can you guys get Toyo tires? I'm currently agonizing over the A/T2 or R/T versus the BFG KO2 on my 4x4 van. 35x12.5 E-rated.

Part if the issue is I'm going from 16 to 17" wheels to fit bigger brakes. I had the E-rated Duratrac on my 16" wheels which is a great off-road tire with decent street manners. But, as it wore I became less than enamored with it. They'e become increasingly noisy, drifty, with more sidewall roll in corners. And it's only available D-rated in 35s on 17.
