    Got an F-150. Needs tires bad! Any better deals out there besides Sam's?

    Any tires any one would recommend I stay away from?

    This is my work truck. 95% use for lawn care.

    I have 4 Bridgestone V Steel 245/75/16 load range e that just came off a new 2500 HD. They have less than 1000 miles on them. They are yours for 200 bucks. I use them on our duallys and are really great tires.

    It would be helpful, if you'd tell of your driving habits/intentions with your truck.

    You going to stay on hard surface, any going off road?

    You haul equipment in the truck, or use trailer, or both?

    What is the expected load weigh to be carried in truck, all the time or just occasionally?

    Also used at other times, longer road trips, around town only?

    One tire type for all year or do you change tires for winter season?

    Or you just looking for cheap & now?

    I haul approx 1200 pounds on a landscape trailer 90% of the time. Almost always its on asphault. Drive about 14,000 miles a year.

    Thought about an all terrain tire but just don't know all the current pitfall on particulat types and makes of tires.

    Picked up some Dunlop Mud Rovers last week. Think I paid $85.00 a tire from Sam's Club plus $9.00 a tire to mount and balance.

    Thanks for all the suggestions.
