F250 Tires

Happy New Year to all!. I tried searching this topic first but no luck. Got some great advice when purchasing the truck for my Crusader 295RST. I have a Ford F250 2012 gasser four door XL
Pulls the trailer like a dream very happy, BUT I hate the tires. I am considering replacing them with something more heavy duty all weather etc. Any thoughts? They are the 17".
Thanks!
Mike

I replaced the factory Continental tires with these.

I have a 2013 F250 with 18" Continentals. LT275/65R18 They seem to be fine and I have no complaints. What is it that you don't like about your tires?

We have firestones on our work truck, and they ride well and seem to wear like iron. I have michelins on my personal truck and like them.

Thanks all. Lloydg...The tires are terrible in snow as well as muddy areas. Even with added weight in the bed.

This is the same problem I had.
The Continentals were a highway tread off road in the snow or on ice they are a joke.

The Coopers are 100% better and well worth the monies IMO.

Hankook DynaPro AT/M are super tires. They are rated in the same class as Nitto Terra Grapplers and Toyo Open Country. I had the LT 285/70 17's on my 08 Dodge 2500 4x4 megcab and loved them. I can hardly wait to get rid of the Michelin junk 18's I currently have and get another set of Hankook's.

My tire friend/expert said "Michelin and BF Goodrich are the only light truck tires to buy. I have varied 3 times and regretted each one. I bought a set for my TV a few months ago and debated long and hard trying to save money. Bit the bullet and got the Goodrich tires. They weren't higher anyway. I just tried to go cheaper. No avail.

Well, that explains why I don't have any complaints yet. Have yet to take it in snow or mud. We have lots of snow but I don't want to expose the truck to salt which is abundant here in Michigan.

Not sure what you friend recommended but, I have Michelin LTX AT/2's and they are useless on anything except nice paved roads but they do wear well ( I drive 20 miles or more a day on dirt roads that can also be 4 inches of mud ) BFG Rugged Trails are a great highway tire and last forever but again are useless in mud or much snow. And BFG All Terrain T/A KO's are great off road in mud, sand and snow but chunk real bad on gravel roads.
