Hi guys I was wondering what you would choose I will be in the market for steer tires for a F-350 4x4 Flatdeck. I was thinking about the Michelin XPS Traction or the M-773 Bridgestone which is a commercial light truck A/T. I want a tire that is gonna last I never used the XPS traction before and for the price of them 210 dollars Canadian I don't want tobe replacing them 6 months down the road. The rear tires will be Bandag Commercial Traction Deep recaps so I'am not worried about the tires matching buying 6 new tires would put a guy in the poor house. My trucks spend most of the time in 2wd the 4 wheeldrive is only gonna be for when ever I need the extra traction I wouldn't be offroading with this truck. The truck spends 80% on paved roads and the other 20% is navigating the tough dirt driveways and construction sites. Has anybody used the M-773 Bridgestones and what they are like ? I thought about using the Michelin M/S but I'am worried about the when I do need 4wheel drive the rear tires are gonna have a considerable bite being traction tires and the front tires will spin too easy because the M/S is a rib style tread. Is it hard on the transfercase or the driveline if the front wheels spin easier than the rear ? Like I said before 3/4s of the time I can get out of areas in with 2wd the 4wheel is for the cases where 2wd is not quite enough traction. So I will run a traction tire on the back and the Bandag CTD work great or I will run Hawkins Tread which is a recap with M-55 Toyo Tread pattern. Sorry for rambling on but what do you think ?
