Tire Recommendations

Hi, I recently purchased the 2018 FR XLR Thunderbolt 340amp and I'm towing with an F250 6.7 Diesel Crew cab (with air bags). Can you recommend best tires/load rate to purchase as I'm looking to replace my tires some time this year.

Can't your Ford dealership assist as the local one sells tires around here?

Not enough info to start. What do you use your truck for? Do you need aggressive tread pattern or highway? Sounds like a trip to your local, trusted tire store would be most beneficial. Lots of good LT tires out there.
Currently Cooper is our favorite. Just have to decide which version is best for your driving/towing needs.
