On my 98 K1500 Z71, never was there a more capable tire that the original LTX A/T on it - 265/75R16 on 16x8 aftermarket wheels! Regardless of any subjective arguments here from seat of the pants feel, the construction of an LT tire is one that is stiffer than a P-rated tire by design. You will notice a difference - period. However, you bought a TRUCK and not luxury sedan!

I've tried others but firestone transforce tires are the ones I get the best mileage out of.
X3 good tires!

Best bang for the buck also.

My 2013 2500 came with Firestone Transforce. Tread wear is even across but I currently have 19,000 miles on them and will be lucky to get 25,000. Lincoln's head is almost entirely visible. Will probably go to Coopers as I have heard good reports from them.

I dont know much about brands an such but I am learning fast from others. My dad said treat your tires better than your wife and they will save your life. I am sure hw meant the trailer as well as the truck.

I've had great luck with Transforces in the past. Currently have GY Wranglers AT Kevlars and after about 12000 miles they are looking pretty good!

I run the 10 ply Cooper AT3. About 30k on them and still going. I'm sure I'll get 55-60k on them. Great in mud & snow, but not super sticky on the asphalt. I had to cut my cornering speeds by 25%

I had a set of Michelin LTX M/S 2 18" on my 2012 1500 chevy crew cab. Great tire. I went with the load E range. When I was not towing I would air down to about 38 lbs and the ride was better than the factory Bridgestone Duellers. I usually ran about 65 lbs towing and never set off the tpms. I 1st put a set of the BF Goodrich TKO's, but swapped them out for the Michelin's the next day due to road noise. If you don't want to sacrifice the ride, Michelin is the way to go for the extra $$.

I too had a set of michelin ltx m/s tires. Wore down to 3/32 and 4/32 in less than 30000 miles. Tire pressure checked weekly, tires rotated every 6 months along with alignment check at that time and performed if needed. To say I was po'd would be an understatement. Tire dealer claimed neglect until I plopped maintainance records onto his counter. He changed his tune quickly when he saw he didn't have a leg to stand on.

I am going back with them on the off chance I got a bad set. They are supposed to be 70000 mile tires. I got 29xxx out of them. I live in illinois, so no corners to carve. All roads lead to "T" corners or intersections. I have an old hot rod when I get the urge to turn tires into smoke. I drive and baby my truck like the proverbial old man.

They ride well, excellent traction in the wet/snow. My only bitch is the wear/mileage I got out of them. Will review again in 2 years if they wear like this again or if I remember... lol.
