Firestone Transforce HT tires?

I am new to the whole *Truck Tire* thing, always used *P* series tire on my trucks because I never really towed anything before.
My local shop gave me a good price on putting a set of these Firestones on my RAM 1500, it was going to need tires by the winter anyway so I figured I would change them out now while I had some extra money.
Getting them installed 7/25 when we get back from our next camping adventure.
Any possitives / negatives I should watch out for with these tires?
I will say I normally use Firestone tires on both my trucks and have always had good luck with them.

Got 6 on my dually and love them. They've worn extremely well, meaning lasting very good. They are highway tread but I never had problems this last winter and am first out during and after storms to move snow at the school I work for.
They'll be leaps better than passenger tires for sure.

I've run a couple of sets on my dually for several years as well. I have had the same experience as Joel.

Think I had the ATc or something like that on my chevy dually . great highway tire and long mileage from them . Will replace my stock pos tires on the ram when they wear out with them.

I am on my third set of transforce hts. First set lasted 50k and the second lasted 45k. We were towing much more with the second set. I really like these tires and think they are excellent tires for the price. When towing I run the front at 70 and the back at 80 psi. Otherwise I run them all at 65.

I have had a set for 2 years and they have worn great. Load range E so stiff riding in my F250SD but tow my 5vr well.

I have a 2012 Ram 3500 CC Limited with only 25000 miles with these Firestones HT's and I will be lucky to get 30000 out of them. They are not a bad highway tire as long as the roads are dry but suck in the snow, I was pulling a two place snowmobile trailer going up a small inclined parking lot in 4 wheel drive because there was about six inches of snow and barely made it up as these tires broke loose. When I replace these tires before winter I'm going with the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor Pro tires. My son-inlaw has these on his Ram 1500 eco-diesel and the are a awesome tire, very quiet on the highway and exceptional traction in the winter and he pulls a 30 TT and never had an issue

I have them on a Suburban, made all the difference in the world going from P rated to these LT tires. Love them.

They came stock on my truck when I bought it about a year and a half ago. I guess they seem alright; not really very aggressive for four wheeling, though I haven't done much yet. Seemed to do okay in the snow going up the dirt road to my house, but when it's time for new ones, I'll be looking at something different.

The HT stands for Highway Tire, not off-road. I've got them on my F350, and really like them for durability.

They have never given me a hint of a problem, though they have never been in the snow (and only rarely in rain) here in SoCal.

My next tires will again be load range E TransForce HT 265-75-R16s.
