I run Nitto Terra Grappler 285/75R16 on my Ford. I have 30,000 miles on them so far with 1/4 tread left. I am very pleased with them and planning on putting on another set next month.

I had goodyears which are only good for a year lol but they got great rain traction and smooth ride.

Now I have some Pirelli Scorpions ATR's 275x55R20 so far they are ok nothing special. Louder than the Goodyears and wet traction is less too. We'll see how they last.

BFG AT's are good tires last a while. So are the Nitto Terra Grapplers. I know a bunch of ppl with them and they have been happy so far. Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armors are a good tire too especially if you get the pro grade compound.

Personally i like the stock tires that came on the truck. Their the big duravis load range e tires that came on my SLT. I'm pretty sure their 285's. They do cost around 520 a tire though. I have 23k and still plenty of tread left on them.

I love BFG A/T's I've had them on 3 trucks and as soon as the stock ones on my F-350 are ready to be replaced I'll be buying BFG's for it.

BFG's AT's or BFG grab alls! They grab everything and through it!n Hence the truck is never clean. I have them on my dump right now. Great tires!

The only tire i'll ever buy for my truck again is the Bridgestone Duler AT REVO's. On my second set and getting ready to purchase my 3rd. A little pricey but the best tire ive ever owned.

BFGoodrich T/A Commercials. Tried the non commercial ones, only lasted about 10 months. Upgraded to the commercial ones under warranty, 1 1/2 years later they almost look new. I'm happy!
