Tow Vehicle Tires

Hello.
I am looking at an upgrade to my Perrelli Scorpions P rated to Long Trail LT tires Load range E on my F150 King Ranch. I did search for BFG Long Trail in case this has been answered already.

Any experience with the BFG tires? They are made in either Romania or USA.

Thoughts please

Brian

PS. Putting Goodyear Marathons on the Rockwood as we'll, 175 each mounted, nitrogen, balanced

I had them on my last 2 1500 Silverados and were great tires. Usually ran them around 60 towing and aired down to 35 For daily driving. Was a quiet tire on the hwy and good in the snow. I would of got them on my 2012 but was told the LT's were not in my size and the Michelens had a great rebate and discount. Can't go wrong with the LT's. I was told they will ride stiffer, but aired down they were as good a ride as my factory P tires.

I put the Long Trails on my '06 Mountaineer (18" wheels) in fall 2010 shortly after we bought it used (originals tires were shot), based on recommendations on Explorer/Mountaineer chat site as best bang-for-the-buck. We've been very happy with them. As was said above, they are quiet, and seem to grab just fine during Michigan winters.

3 years and about 30,000 miles, and they still have at least half the tread remaining. How that translates to your F150, likely in a different size, is unknown. But we're very pleased, and will get them again when the time comes.

BFG Rugged Trail (I believe - there are 3 different "trail" tires) were OEM equipment on my 05 Dodge 2500 when I had it. They were great. Did not look very aggressive, but handled snow and mild off road duty very well. Got 80K out of the first set.
