Toyos on both trucks. Funny that the Dodge I bought used came with them! Can't afford michelens but I feel that the Toyos are the next best thing.

twj721, I just noticed that we both share the same join month/year! You just need to step up the posting a bit... lol

BFGoodrich A/T KO's, LOVE THEM. Great wear, excellent on and offroad traction, awesome in snow. Not that great in rain, and the tread pattern is a little old, but obviously still superior to most patterns. Steer clear of GoodYear light truck tires, JUNK.

right now between cutting grass and trying to keep up with the paperwork:dizzy: and trying to keep my 82 year young dad out of trouble :confused: sometimes I think I am ther adult and he is the child he is always trying to sneak out with the tractor which is a nono:nono: and let us not forget my full time bus route 5 days a week for 36 weeks or 180 days or 360 trips Am sure looking forward to the winter time and then I will be posting more but right now it seems like it is can to can't and just when it looked like it might slow down it has started raining here yes we need the rain bad so guess I'll just cut a little more grass .The school just gave us the go ahead to disc up about 20 acres and then drag it so they can plant rye grass so looks like I'll be busy another 2 months any how Thank Goodness :clapping:

The BFG A/T KO is "The TIRE" of truck tires.

I have the 285/70-17(s) on a 2005 Ford F-250 [Lariat - FX4]
w/ PowerStroke Turbo Diesel.

They are a little expensive, but very much worth the $$$.

I just got rid of my BFG's they were worn and they sucked for rain and snow but any tire that is worn will be that way, anyway I just switched tires from my 87' plow truck that I'm selling and put the on my 99' truck, ( Desert Dog) I don't know who makes them but the 87' truck could push a lot more snow than any of my other trucks.

BFG A/T's, i love mine but when i replace them im going with 285/75/16 BFG Mud Terrain's on a regular cab Z71. The Mud are a very aggresive tread but a friend has them and they have worn great, (they are at 50,000 miles) and they dont whine too loud.

I love them, good in the snow and rain. I dont get into a serious mud but they hold there own on the logging trails in the woods. There my 2nd set and for a work truck there just fine.

I got some of those, too! 35 bucks apiece at the tire place, balanced and installed. Just got a pair today.Three of them,with 100 miles or less on them, the price was so good, I had the spare replaced.
