need long lasting bridgestone tires for truck and trailer

ok so i can get good pricing on bridgestone/firestone tires. so i might want to stick to this brand

have a tandom enclosed and a 3/4ton chevrolet. so it wants to eat tires some.

what tires do you think i should consider for my truck and trailer.

i need just summer tires, longest lasting. dont drive in the mud or snow. truck gets parked in winter.

Firestone - Transforce is a great heavy duty tire. I have 3 one tons and 2 3/4tons and all of them have the transforce tires. Never had any problem with any of them.

Factory tires aren't usually the best regardless of what manufacturer is used.

The Goodyears that came on my Silverado wore out faster than I could ever have thought possible. (Can't recall the model)


As for the OP, I was going to mention the Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo, but that's an "all-terrain" tire. I was very happy with them. Very quiet for an aggressive tread, good on snow/ice, decent mileage...

I don't have any suggestions for "highway" treads though.

Yes might be good trailer tires. I normaly put carliale raidial trails I think they are on the trailer. But I get such a good price on the bridgestones.

I've been very happy with my michelin ltx m/s tires but they are over $200 a pop. Seemed to have lasting tread.
