Upgraded tires and shocks

Was planning on upgrading from the stock passenger tires that came on my F150 to LT tires when they wore out, but a non-repairable flat gave me an excuse to do it now. I bought Michelin Defender LT 275/65 R18s, and why I was at it ordered and installed Bilstein 4600 shock absorbers. Members on this forum seem to like both of these options. Will be hooking up my trailer in a couple of weeks to try it out.-- Frank

Looks like some good upgrades for your pickup. I have bilsteins on two different vehicles and would recommend them to most anyone. They seem to take a few hundred miles to settle in but are great thereafter. One set has close to 100k miles, the other set has about 60k miles and both are still performing well.

Bilsteins came standard on my 03 tundra...did a great job..smoothed out “washboard” back roads like no other vehicle I’ve driven.
Planning to install them on my 2016 Silverado LTZ 4x4 TV.
