Using the SEARCH function, I found quite a few post regarding tires.

These posts are for all tires not just trucks, so you will have to sort thru them.

I had the Firestone Steeltex AT on my truck and I just replaced them after 61,000 miles. I bought the same tires, they wore good and gave good traction. Hard to ask for more than what they did. That's good miles for a truck I thought. Plus they were only $120 each mounted and balanced. Also, only had to buy three because of full size spare I had. They put the best used one for the spare.

I liked the Steeltex for mileage. But when the road is wet and you got big power like I do, and you get down on the throttle the Steeltexes have a tendancy to break loose even on just water, no ice. That is my only complaint.
Plus the fact that you guys can buy cheaper than I can for the same thing.

I had the Steeltex tires on my Ford F-250 that came stock on it. I replaced them with the same. If it aint broke dont fix it.

All pickups lack traction when there is no load or weight behind them. Adjust your driving to the conditions.

Is that the problem? I thought I should be able to run hammer down all the time.
