One more vote for Michelins. I put them on my '97 Silverado, and it made a world of difference in ride quality and noise reduction. That's the only truck tire I'd go with.

I am about to pull the trigger on a set of LTX M/S 2's. When I worked in the pipeline world, the only tires that would hold up were Michelin's and I've been using them ever since. I am finding the best prices for them at my local Ford dealer and that includes all the extras like hazard, flats, rotation, etc. Plus any Ford dealer can warranty them. I did the same thing on my wife's Lincoln LT, the Ford dealer beat the rest of the tire dealers by quite a bit.

Well, I'll be the first one to ask...Is it a 2 or 4 Wheel Drive.? If it's a 4x2 the Michelins are a good choice in 265/70/17. If it's a 4x4 a set of Toyo Open Country A/T's in size 285/75/17.

I'm on my second set of Michelin LTXs. They work great! You can get them for a reasonable price at Costco.

We have used Michelin’s for many years on our pickups, truck based SUV’s and trailers. We have been very happy with the traction even when tread is getting low, ride, and how they last and last. But in the past few years they don’t last as long. I think they made the rubber a little softer for a more comfortable ride to compete with other tire companies. The good thing about this is that they have been liberal is giving us rebates for lower mileage and we have bought new ones very cheaply as a result. Still very good tires, but they don’t last as long.

In the long run they are cheaper because they last longer than other brands and you don’t have to pay twice for mounting, etc., and don’t have worn tires two times.

If you only drive on interstates and nice roads, Michelin’s are a safe bet. My combined weight for my rig is just under 20k. We fulltime. We drive 40k+ per year, I averaged less than 34k on three different sets of Michelin’s. Last set got me into what some call a death wobble due to a broken radial belt. We drive on gravel a fair amount and the Michelin’s throw rocks like crazy. I went with Cooper AT3 XLT. Set of 4 Coopers with road side from Discount Tire was well below set of 4 Michelin’s. The AT3 XLT’s are quieter, smoother riding, better handling then the Michelin’s.....and they don’t throw rocks. PSI on all my tires are at 78.

Tire treadlife is a tradeoff. A soft tread will provide better traction but will wear out faster. Anyone can make a tire to last 100,000 miles but the tire with the least treadlife may be the safest.
