2X on Michelin LTs. Only issue with them if you donít put a lot of miles on them they tend to dry rot before they ware out. Itís not like they are going to fail when they start to dry rot, but they do tend to ride harder. Iíve got 60k miles on each set Iíve purchased and put on 10k miles a a year. If youíre doing 12k or more per year dry rot will not be an issue for you.

F150 Tires

I've been running Firestone Destination A/T E series on my 2010 F150 5.7L pulling a 25 Ft., Sabre Lite 5er. A little costly up front but piece of mind on the road.

I had replaced the terrible OEM Goodyear Wranglers with Firestone Transforce LT's (E) on my 2011 F150. The Wranglers lasted 30,000km before 2 were toast. I have always been happy with Firestone's, and have found that they last longer and cost less than other brands. The Transforce's rode a little rougher and were a little louder than the Wranglers (LT vs P) but were great for towing, and in the mud (which I encounter out in the oil fields). Crappy on icy highways though.

Had Michelin LT on my 2015 2500 Chevy had only 36000 miles on them and looked still new. Truck was 4 years old when traded and no signs of dry rot. It set out doors in sun and shade. I will putting Michelin on my new Ram next month get rid of crappy Firestone ties that came on it. Later RJD

My F-150 came with Michelin LTX M/S2 in 20 inch. I really like them.
