    I'm driving a 2500 chevy diesal and pull a double axle trailer with a ztr mower most of the time. There are times where I have 2 mowers or a 65 gallon water tank in the bed. I've used 285 BFG's for the past couple of tire changes. Seems the aggressive tread pattern helps them last longer. I rotate at every oil change(about 5-6k).

    Any suggestions of good long lasting 285 tires that you've used? This truck is my personal and work truck.

    Cooper ATR...best tire I've ever used on any of my trucks. Long lasting, good handling, good traction, minimal road noise...I haven't found a fault with them at all.

    Miichelin's usually last pretty long. Pricey but ride really smooth.

    Procomp A/T's. They last forever and have great traction in mud and snow.
