Thanks for the information. I'd probably purchase through Discount Tire. Any better suggestions?

Not from me.
I bought my Coopers at a local Discount Tire store.
Free rotation, air check and more.
Great on the spot service.


I bought these.

Cooper tires for your 2010 FORD F-250 in the Boise Area - Discount Tire

I replaced my factory Bridgestone with Michelin LTX M/S. I usually air up to 60-65 lbs towing. Non towing about 90% of the time I have 40 lbs. I was surprised how well they rode aired down. Not as stiff riding as I thought.

After debating between the Michelin LTX AS and the LTX M/S2, I'm going with the M/S2. I'm sticking with the P tire over the LT tire.

I am changing sizes from 265/60/18 to 275/65/18. Didn't think I would do that, but I feel there are advantages - hope I'm not wrong lol.

Comparing the two, the tread "should" last quite a bit longer and the load should increase slightly from 2271 #s per tire.

Thanks for the advice folks!

It is your money and call, but I think the softer sidewalls of the P metric tire will disappoint you.

Good luck.

Maybe, but I've got p tires on there now and all seems fine. I'm not hauling a heavy trailer (Roo 23ss) and don't plan on pulling anything heavier with this truck.

You will get better handling and much longer tire mileage with an LT tire. You can lower the pressure as I do down to 35 in front and 30 in the rear when not towing, but it's your money, so spend it as you like.

I have basically the same setup and when it was time for new tires I got the Michelin LTX M/S2 LT275/65/18 and I have zero regrets. The ride is a little stiffer but it handles much better when towing.
