Tire Advice 2007 f250

Need some new tires on my personal/estimate truck. Its an 07 f-250 diesel crewcab 4x4. Never tows but occasionally sees snow and a lot of driving. Has BF goodrich on it now but I'm not really particular to any brand as long as theyre safe and hold up well. Ive got 265 70/R-17 on there now, wouldnt mind a little bit of a bigger tire though. whats everybody got on theres? Any suggestions?

I put 305's on my Super duties. Perfect size for them.

Also wanted to mention that a great majority of the miles that are put on this truck are highway so I wouldnt mind keeping the road noise down some ya know.

I like the Nittos. But ive used mainly mud tires. I had a set of bridgestone duelers on my last truck, and they were great! I recommend them.

Toyo open country ATs E load range. I also had good luck with the BFG Rugged trail that came on my Dodge.

Michelin is about the quietest tire the next inline would be a tire from Bridgestone then Toyo. I never had any luck with BF Craprich or Crapyear.

I see Toyo has a good road tire I found Toyo Open Country H/T Tuff Duty Tires
