I need a new set of tires for 2017 F150 4 door 4x4. I bought this 1/2 ton 2 years ago because I don't frequently need a 3/4 ton like I used to and it was a bargain I didn't want to pass up. AND, my tire guy for the last 35 years retired and closed his shop.

Most of my driving is highway, but I do drive some country roads, occasionally haul or tow a load, or get muddy.

I prefer to buy quality and a single tire cost as much as I used to pay for a set. I've had excellent luck with Michelin car tires, but have no experience with them on a truck.

The tires are 265/70R17. Current tires are 10 ply muds and I am planning to replace with 10 ply all terrain.

Best choices I have so far are
Michelin @ $40ish higher than the others
BF Goodrich AT (not the ko2)
Cooper
Hankook

What experience good or bad have you had with these?

I've run Toyo and Nittos as well as some Michelins on several f350, f250 and Excursion. All three were good to me, all 10ply E AT tires.

I like Hercules or Nitto.

I’ve also got a lot of miles out of General Grabber AT2’s. Got a set on my old truck at like 45,000 miles and traded that truck off at 91,000. Still see that truck every once in awhile around town and it has the same set of tires on it.

BFG AT”s wear like iron….if had the KO2’s also and they are very nice but wear much faster. Ive had good luck with the Hankook on SUV’s but on a full size truck I’d go BFG AT’s

I’ve had great luck out of Nittos, but I’m currently running Toyos on my F250, F350, and Silverado 1500. The Toyos were cheaper this time. In my opinion, they “sing” a little more going down the road, but they’re wearing at least as well as the Nittos did.
I wouldn’t hesitate to buy either Nittos or Toyos again. :anyone:

My Ram 2500 MegaCab has Cooper St Maxx tires on them. They are considerded an AT but are one of the most aggressive ATs on the market. I LOVE them. Put them on it at about 26K miles and truck now has 70K miles on them and have probably another 5-8K miles left on them before the tread hits the wear bars on them. Supper happy and for the size, type, longevity and quality of tire they are very reasonably priced. Mine are 295/70/18 which is about 34.25" tall with a load rating of over 4K lbs. and max at 80psi. You can't go wrong with them.
