Our 2004 Dodge dually came with LT235/80R17E Goodyear Wranglers on it. They had the standard five rib tread design. We were full timers and at least 40% of the miles were while towing our 38’ fiver. After 40,000 miles I noticed the tires would lose traction when starting on inclines and always on wet roads. So, even though the tread wear didn’t warrant tire replacement I replaced them.
The replacements were General AmeriTrac all season radials with a very similar - to the Wranglers - tread pattern. After about 40,000 miles under very similar use the Generals also started to break-out just as the Wranglers did. So I replaced them.
I decided to go with a more aggressive tread pattern and switched back to Goodyear and their Wrangler silent armor pro grade series with Kevlar. (I don’t think they make anymore of them in my size). I thought the tread pattern would be noisy but it’s not. I have well over 45,000 miles on them and have not yet experienced any break-out situations. We are not full timing anymore so the percentage of tow miles has been much less than the other two sets. But, I’m sure these will age out before they wear out.
p.s. I air my tires as recommended in the truck's owner's manual.
