TV Tires

Everyone likes new tires when you get them, and so do I. However, after a while and a few miles, sometimes not so much. My Ram 2500 is starting to get to the point that new tires will be needed. So, what have your experiences been? What brand and tire name/size and how many miles/months have you had them? The Firestones on it have lasted only 33K miles and maybe have 5K left in them... so I'm not impressed so far.

Thanks in advance for your opinions...

I have a brand new Silverado 3500 and took off OEM immediately for Michelin Defender LTX M/S. I have run Michelin on last three tow vehicles with zero problems. Ride smooth and quiet and wear well. Ok snow traction.

Hated Firestones and Goodyears they just don't get good mileage. I have 60,000 miles on Michelin LTX A/T 2 on my 4Runner and easily another 15,000 left. I also have the LT version on my F250 good off road traction, wet traction quiet. I only have 5300 miles on them but so far I love them.

If you have the Firestone Transformer tires they are two versions of this tire one of them is truely awful. My buddy just replaced his rear tires at 13K on his Ram. Warranty was crap prorating killed him. Even though the tires were not abused.

I'd look at Hancooks. Great tires at reasonable prices

Pricing all of the tires available it looks like the LTX A/T2s are going to be my choice... I've never had a bad tire from Michelin, and they aren't that much more... Thanks all!
