TV LT Tires-Recomendations?

Getting ready to cross 70K on my Ram that was factory equipt with LT tires. It came with Goodyear wranglers and they have been good all around tires. I travel in the truck a ton for work and spend a lot of time on the highway and the noise with A/T tires and such can become bothersome. Here is what I am looking for....I typcially in the past have bought tires from Costco and they only carry a few brands. BFG (A/T's), Michiclen (Various models, all highway friendly tread), and Bridgestones that i am not very fimilar with. As much as i would like to go with the Goodyears again....Costco tire centers i really like for mutiple reasons. Any recomendatons?

Can't go wrong with Michelin. I run Michelin on my truck and DWs SUV. We're at 60k+ on the SUV and can squeeze another 10k out of them.

When it comes to tires I am all too happy to add my 2 cents worth. As an independent tire dealer for 39 years, I suggest find an independent tire store and learn all that you are able to digest. You will find the prices to be competitive and service is usually better. If you have a future tire issue it would be more easily handled as they become your representative. And don't forget, the $$ stay in your neighborhood.

If your are lucky, you are Lucky Enough !

michelins here as well. wear like iron and a 70000 mile tire to boot. since you are close ryand, look into roberts ford in alton. none of the big chains could touch their prices.

I'm not a fan of Michelin. I've had several sets (original equipment). To get the mileage out of their tires, they go with harder rubber compounds. I find them inadequate, in general, in rain, ice, snow. Also, they tend to have few voids in the tread pattern making them more subject to hydroplaning.

I've had great luck with Wranglers; also Nokian (awesome tire), BFG, and Bridgestone Duelers.

Nokian would be my favorite tire.

You may want to consider one of the Bridgestone Duravis line of tire from Costco - Tire Catalog | Bridgestone Tires
Something like the M700 HD IMHO
