Re: Poll: Best Tire for F250/350

I noticed that you are located in Washington.

I am a big fan of Les Schwab Open Country A/T's. A very good tire. The Bridgestone tires, most if not all, run a tread pattern that picks up a lot of small rocks.

The Michelin LTX is a great tire also. I've nver ran it on a 4 wheel drive, but used them on my 2 wheel drive pickup. They also have a tendency to load up with small rocks. Costco carries the Michelin LTX.

Re: Poll: Best Tire for F250/350

For a stock sized tire Michelin XPS Traction gets my vote. Awesome mileage from this tire. Little better tread depth than the LTX. Unfortunately they only come in a couple of sizes with the 235/85 being the largest.

Re: Poll: Best Tire for F250/350

Thanks for the voting. I have Revos on my truck right now and am very pleased. I posted this poll for my friend who has a F350 also and wants to upgrade his tires and needs advice.

As far as rocks, yes the REVOs will pick some up on gravel roads but they mostly come off when back on pavement. I think that is a small trade off for the excellent traction they give me in the winter. Also I was on a farm recently that was all muddy and snowy. The REVOs kicked butt there too. I don't notice any additional road noise from them.

I ran my stock Firestones to 60K miles and they were horrible for traction on just about everything. I wanted a solid tire that will go for 50-60K again with the ability to handle all road conditions.

I bought them from Costco, which unfortunately is no longer a Bridgestone dealer. They were the best price in town. Sorry I left off the Toyos and Open Country, I guess "other" will be the pseudo for that.

Re: Poll: Best Tire for F250/350

I agree with Kanman - XPS rib or traction, but 235x85R16 is the biggest you can get. But that's a great size for a dually. This is a "real" truck tire, I'm pretty sure there's steel in the sidewalls, and they can be recapped. But they are expensive! $280 each from a tire place, about $190 - $210 from Walmart or Sam's/BJs/Costco, same from Tirerack but add shipping...

Re: Poll: Best Tire for F250/350

The Pirelli Scorpion is the single best tire Ive ever owned. Incredible wet traction with quiet tread.

Anyone try the Hankook Dynapro MT RT03? The 315/75/R16 comes as a 10 ply.

Re: Poll: Best Tire for F250/350

I'd suggest the Wild Country XTXs from Les Schwab. Good tire, got 60k out of the set I had on mine before I put the lift on and went bigger. I would say there was probably at least another 5k remaining.
