This is my first truck with 19.5 wheels and the R250F Bridgestones I bought for the truck last year for my steer tires are almost done. Not impressed with the Kilometerage I have 18,000kms (11,185 miles) on them and they are need replacing. They wore out faster than the 16 inch tires I'am used to. They sure don't hold a candle to the original Generals that were on the truck when I bought the truck. With this hot weather the pavement is hot and its really pealing the rubber off the Bridgestones. I also have a truetrac in the rear diff with bandag gripper tread they grip the road good so it really pushes the truck in the corners. The Bridgestones have been bad from the start they were almost square tires and the tread squirm was horrible. Now both current tires have worn the inside rib down to the wear bar. The truck has brandnew ball joints and the alinement is good. Now I'am looking for a tire that will last longer than what I have. I can try squeek some more life out of the Bridgstones if I pay the tire shop to take the tires off the rim turn the tires and remount and balance it would cost me 100 dollars. Anyhow has anybody had any luck with Michelin XZE or the Yokohama Y023 or the Toyos in 225 19.5 . The Bridgestones I have currently have 4/32 tread depth difference on the wear bars from the inside rib and outside rib. The 225 70R19.5 Bridgestone cost me 300 dollars each the Michelins will probably cost 340 each. Oh ya Bridgestone Touts the R-250F a "long wearing tire"
