Falken Wildpeak A/T 3W tires on my truck. I have found them to be great on dirt roads and wet pavement. Not enough snow this year to really know, but they are 3W rated ... so, I expect them to be "serviceable."

My truck came with LT275/65R18 with Load range of D from the factory. I later put on P275/65, which had a better ride, better MPG, but no more durability than the stock LTs. I wasn't towing, so no problems with the P -- well, occasionally a 3500 lb pop-up, but nothing big.

Earlier this year, knowing I'd be towing again, I went back to LT tires. I went with LT275/70 tires, which have a 1" taller stance. Load rating of E: 3,640 lbs at 80 psi. I lost nearly 2 MPG in economy going from the P to the heavy LT tires.

Ironically, Ford de-rates the tow capacity of the F150s with optional 18" wheels by 500 lbs against the standard model with 17" wheels ... but my tires are nearly 500 lbs each greater in capacity than the 17" wheel equivalents. Very odd.

Because of how it changes the gearing I guess.

Changed shoes on the Sandpiper in October while in Minnesota at our once a year truck checkup/pm work. Brought rig over and they put on four:

235/85R16 Advanta A3000T 14ply G rated for $598.44 ($149.61 per). There was fed tax, new steel stems, mounting charge, disposal fee and state sales tax added to this.
Happy with em because farmers and horse people buy for their farm and ranch trailers in this area. The shop is in the country so Brian doesn't charge the city rates. Been doing business with him on truck and rig the last five years.

For my trailer...Goodyear Endurance. It's the first thing I did. No way was I going from Arizona to Alaska with China bomb tires.
