I am a bfgoodwrench at/ko guy love the tire. But I am looking at the nitto tire and am leaning to the Michelin ltx at2. I know a few older guys who hate noise and love these tires. We all were bf good and nitto tire guys. Buy if you are never going offroad this is a good tire. if you might go off road once this is a good tire. and it looks simi agressive but is very mild. And Michelin have a great warrenty. Also I just put 4 michelin's on my wife's Grand Prix and I got buy 3 get one free from farm and fleet plus Michelin is running a 70 dollar gift card hope this helps.

seems like the continentals xl20 s are getting 50,000 and they claim to be a 70,000 mile tire so we will see lol
seemed like a good deal, 900 out the door and that is including a dodge rim (plain black) that they will put the best wrnagler hp on to use as a spare instead of that flimsy donut that comes with it

I run the Hankook DynaPro ATM's. Better than the GY's in most respects, but the GY's are quiet and give a nice ride. I think they both are 40,000 mile tires if you drive easy. The biggest complaint with the GY's was the hydroplaning after 30,000 miles and poor snow performance. Perhaps if I lived in Arizona, the GY's would be perfect. I might look at the Firestone Wilderness AT or Michelins next time. I'd give the Hankooks 3 stars.

I've got the Cooper Discoverer Plus in the stock size and I couldn't be happier. Granted we have a Cooper Tire plant not too far from here, so Cooper's tend to be just a little less than they might be else where...

I got mine about 2 or 3 months ago for $966 out the door, included mounting, balancing, road hazard, and life time free rotation.

I just installed a set of Firestone Destination le2's on the truck. They got as good a rating as I could find without going to a really expensive tire. So far I've logged about 3k miles on them and have nothing but praise. I don't go off road so I wanted quiet and long lasting. All four, out the door, was $800 in Long Island, NY for 20" wheels.

I guess the only knock would be if you want an "aggressive" looking tyre. Personally I don't really care. I think they look fine, but I just want them to work.

First question what is a good replacement?
second, would you recommend just replacing two tires and maybe waiting till later. I still need change the plugs lol

Great truck but definitely some issues, had a tranny leak that I brought back 12 times

any info is greatly appreciated!!!
I think the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo offers the best combination of smooth street driving and A/T tread to get you through the snow or off-road. Went through 2 sets on my F-150 and will be going with them once my Goodyear HPs are toast.

I went with the continentals... Love them... AND they are awesome in the snow, super smooth and quiet.. Im impressed for a highway tire. I have 10k miles on them now so time will tell.
