Tire Recommendation

Need to replace the tires on my 2018 F150 Crew Cab. Got it narrowed down to 2 different ones, canít decide which.

I rarely go off road; but I live in Michigan so I will be driving in snow in the winters. My trailer is ~8500-9000lbs.

BFGoodrich All Terrain T/A K02ís or Michelin LTX Defender M/S2ís

Kinda leaning toward the Michelins because I donít need the off road performance.

Love the Michelin LTX Defenders on my F150.

We have the Michelins on our F350 SRW. Approximately 22,000 miles on them. Rotate around 5-6K and they are holding up well.

They are on the pricey end, but it's hard to go wrong with Michelins.

Like others have said in previous "tire posts", manufacturers tend to equip light duty trucks with P Metric tires, not LT tires. Several brands of tires use "fancy" acronyms in their tires like ATX, A/T OR TA. With a little research you find out they're just plain old P metric radials and not LT tires. For towing, I run only LT tires.

We are now on our 2nd set of Michelins, LTX M/S2's. I won't have anything else on our 2011 Chevy Silverado LTZ. Very pleased with the quality.

I rotate them every 5K miles at the same time I change the oil and filter.

I ended up going with the KO2’s.

Towed with them for the first time over the weekend. Noticable improvement over my previous 116T rated tires, and I was only running them at 55psi. Going to try 50-65psi next time.
