Tow Vehicle Tires

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

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.

A rainy day camping is better than a sunny day at work.
