I know this has been posted before, but it looks like the search function isn't functioning. Anyways, I'm going to need new tires. Right now I have some Michelin H/T tires on it which are great for a quiet and fuel efficient ride, but they sucked offroad if I'm honest. I was thinking about going to Michelins AT tire but was also considering Falken Wildpeak AT3s. They seem to get good ratings for an AT tire but still decent on the road which is where most of their miles will accrue. I don't need anything really aggressive and I don't like that loud lumberwagon type ride on the road. What brands and models are you all running on your trucks?

From: Matt
25-Mar-24
I have Cooper AT3’s - and like but don’t love them, but my local tire guy really talked up the Falken Wildpeak’s last time I was in there.

From: KHNC
25-Mar-24
That is exactly the tire i will be getting on my F250 in a few weeks. I have Cooper's on it now. They didnt last worth crap. Everyone seems to love the Falken AT3's.

From: Bowbender
25-Mar-24
Cooper Discoverer AT3's. On my third set on my Tacoma. Average over 65K miles. On my sons Nissan and 2004 Jeep Wrangler.

My work truck is a GMC 2500 diesel. I go some pretty sketchy places with it and it has Kenda Klever R/T's on it. They are great off road but are horrible on the highway as far as noise goes, they ride ok. I don't pay for them so I just turn up the radio.

I always run an AT tire on my personal truck but I don't take it into the kind of places I take my work truck. I think the last set I put on were BFG's about 2 years ago. They are holding up well.

From: Brotsky
25-Mar-24
BFG All Terrain TA/KO2.....

From: Glunt@work
25-Mar-24
Brotsky x2. Plenty of decent choices but still my favorite for an all-around tire daily/hunting rig tire. Not cheap. I have some inexpensive Pathfinders on my F150 at the moment. Great so far but I don't expect them to wear as good and they will likely get noisy. They are Discount Tires house brand made by Hankook.

From: LAWDOG
25-Mar-24
I was like you. The truck came with Transforce H2. Good highway tire, and that is where I do most of my driving. Offroad, I'd get stuck on wet grass. When I wore them out, I went with Firestone Destination XTs. They have an aggressive tread design but not so much that they are noisy on the highway and provide enough traction where I really notice the difference in the mud and wet. They ride marginally stiffer than the Transforce, but barely noticeable. Good warranty too, and Firestone actually honors it without question.

25-Mar-24
I just put Firestone Destination AT2's on my Silverado. I don't have a separate hunting rig, so my truck is my daily driver, tows the boat, and hopefully goes to NM for an elk hunt this fall (I'm trying to speak that into existence LOL). I really like these tires - a great balance of off-road and snow capabilities but not crazy noisy for my daily work commute. Much better than the Goodyears I previously had on my truck. Pete

I just put the Falken Wildpeak AT4's on my truck-I already love them. Great in the snow and SOOOOOO much quieter than the Goodyear Duratracs that came with the vehicle.

From: sitO
25-Mar-24
I've been running Falken tires for 10yrs or so, always had BFG's before. I have H/T02's on one truck for trailering, M/T's on another and A/T3's on main hunting truck. The A/T3's aren't as quiet as the H/T02's, but much quieter than the M/T's. I'd compare the road noise to KO's but I get better tread life.

From: APauls
25-Mar-24
Dang. Wish I had read this earlier. I mean I can't complain with the 110,000km's I got on my Duratracs and I do like them in use, but they're not cheap.

I’ve been very happy with my Firestone at2s, got them for a good deal. Love the look of BFGs though.

From: Matt
25-Mar-24
That’s like……35 miles.

I used to be a die-hard BFG AT guy and won’t buy they again. The newer designs from other manufacturers seem to outperform them in most every way, especially in terms of wet weather performance and with how loud the BFG AT’s got once they were 3/4 worn.

From: Old School

BFG KO2’s for me. On my second set - I get 75,000 miles out of them on my Sequoia.

From: nchunter
25-Mar-24
My 2018 tacoma has BF Goodrich all terrain ko2's. I got 73000 on the last set. I have never gotten stuck on any snowy muddy roads or field that I have driven on. Does fantastic on paved snow covered roads. On a flat highway I get 24 mpg. Driving mountain highways drops me down to 21. City driving about 18. Not too noisy either.

From: RonP

mike b, les schwab is regional. most east of colorado have no idea who or what les schwab is. also, they do not carry many toyo tires anymore. they replaced them with their own brand, mazama.

Toyo M-55

From: Jaquomo
25-Mar-24
Another vote for BFG AT TAs. I live in the mountains and hunt/scout a LOT, and need a great mud-snow tread. But we also pull a big camper all over the place, so need a tire that wears well and is relatively quiet on the highway. Of all the tires I've had, this is the best all around compromise.

There is no "perfect tire". Just what works best for you, for the kind of driving you do.

From: 12yards
25-Mar-24
I'm amazed you guys like the BFGs. We got sets on our work trucks and I'm not sure if we got 20,000 miles out of them. Kind of soured me on them despite loving the look. Thanks for all the input so far. Sounds like there are a lot of options to consider.

From: Nick Muche
25-Mar-24
10 ply, really doesn’t matter which brand you go with. Lost count of my trips on what most consider the roughest road in NA (well over 100)… never a flat.

From: Old School

12 yards - one of the reasons I like the BFG KO2’s is how many miles I get out of them 75-80k is not uncommon amongst the people I know.

All-around Goodyear Wranglers are hard to beat for wear, noise, traction, price and durability

From: Mpdh
25-Mar-24
Cant even remember the model number Michelin tires I just got on my truck. Maybe LTs? Replacement for the Bridgestone tires I had, which cut my mpg by about 3 from what came on it new. The Bridgestones were noisy and turned brown when I didn’t wash and spray them consistently. I need tires for mostly road driving,some dirt roads. This is on a 2014 Z71, and cost me $1200 plus.

From: Seth
25-Mar-24
Toyo Open Country are my preference. I drive 30k+ annually and use my truck on highway, forest, BLM, and in the pit at a coal mine. This is the best all around tire I’ve found, followed closely by the General Grabber.

Toyo AT III'S

From: PAOH

I really liked the Wildpeaks on my Silverado. They make a nice suv tire ,the AT Trails are also very good. We run the Wildpeaks on some work trucks also with great results. The ones on my Silverado were union made in Buffalo

Michelin Defenders Or Long Trail TA’s

Best all around for Minnesota weather

From: RutnStrut
25-Mar-24
I don't understand how someone isn't getting good to great tread life out of the KO2's. The set I have on my F150 now has 80k on them and easily have another 15k before they need to be replaced. I do rotate every oil change though.

25-Mar-24
Cooper at3. 10 ply. 10 ply is important for off roading in a half ton.

25-Mar-24
I'm another fan of the Wildpeaks, however I would suggest you get the 10ply. Tread depth is a little deeper.

25-Mar-24
BFG KO2’s are great. I also get 75,000 miles out of them, fairly quiet and the tires have great on and off road traction. And they look awesome too.

From: Tilzbow
25-Mar-24
Toyo AT III'S for me on my truck and I’ll be going with the new Toyo Open Country RT Trail in load range D for my 2021 2-door Bronco when the OEM Goodyear MT Territory wear out later this year.

BFG KO would be way down the list for me based on past performance on my vehicles in rocky terrain with sharp rocks.

Goodyear Wranglers for me. Great tires for all purpose driving and does great job in mountains. Hard to beat for an affordable all season tire.

From: wytex

Yokohama Geolander A/T XD is very similar to the Duratracs, spouse just put some on his F250. Likes them so far and much better price. I just put the Falken Wildpeak AT4Ws and like them, was surprised how quiet they are. They also have a 60,000 mile tread warranty and road hazard from Falken.

From: RonP
26-Mar-24
the best all-around tire for a pickup particularly a 3/4 or 1 ton is the toyo CT. it is similar to the M-55, but a bit less aggressive, just as tough, not noisy, and is better in snow.

From: mgmicky
26-Mar-24
I’ve had 2 sets of BFG K20s on my F150 and got about 80K out of each of them. I’m on the 3rd set now and it seems like they slip a lot more on wet roads than my last 2 sets. I have a buddy who geeks out on tires that told me that they changed the rubber compound, but not sure if that’s true. I just put a set of Wildpeak AT3 on my 4 runner so time will tell…

From: 12yards

Grunt n Gobble, they don't offer the Wildpeak in a 10 ply for my tire size.

10 ply Wildpeak AT3s on my Super Duty. Great tire.

From: BOWNBIRDHNTR
26-Mar-24
I'm getting Nitto Ridge Grapplers on my F350 as I type this response. Truck came with Goodyear Wranglers from the factory. Decent tire but I couldn't stand the road noise that began at 25K miles. 30K on them now and I'm getting new tires. I've had the Ridge Grapplers on a few trucks and had great luck. Miles are mostly highway but always get me in and out of job sites or hunting areas, hold up well pulling a skidloader and stay quiet.

From: 12yards
26-Mar-24
The last thing I want are loud tires. I hate feeling like I'm in a lumber wagon. I've got some Hankook AT tires on a Silverado my son drives. I can't stand it. Also will be replacing that old Silverado with a 2013 F150 for my son that has Toyo AT tires on it. That truck doesn't sound much better. Not a fan of aggressive AT tires for the majority of my driving. Looking for that AT tire that is also road friendly.

From: wytex

Wildpeak AT4W is quiet. The AT3 is going to be discontinued according to Falken. 12yds make sure you look for the LT version, they offer the LT and regular version of the AT4W.

wytex, my Canyon takes a 265/65r17. They don't make it in an LT version or a 10 ply.

I've run BFG KO's on several different trucks for at least 20 years and have been very happy with them. I currently have them on 2 of my 3 trucks. I also get at least 60k miles on them but I rotate them regularly.

I currently have a '21 Silverado 3500 that came with Michelin LTX A/T2 and they have 38k miles on them. I also had them on a previous truck that I bought new. They're surprisingly good for how non aggressive they are but I'm looking for something more aggressive and will replace them before elk season. I also need 10 ply and BFG has always been my first choice but I'll look at some of the other options mentioned in this thread. I'm kind of shopping now so this thread is timely.

Man I hate buying tires! I had an 08 Ram 2500 for about 15 years. When I needed new ones, I’d go to craigslist or marketplace. There’s always a hand full of folks that buy a new truck and immediately change the factory wheels and tires. I probably bought 4 sets for that truck, and all of them included the nice rims. Never paid more than $500 cash for them. As long as I’m not in sand or bad mud, they handle mountain roads just fine.

26-Mar-24
70lb I've been watching Marketplace and Craigslist too and haven't found anything in my size or 10 ply that cheap. Most of the new "take offs" with wheels I've seen have been in the $1200-2500 range.

From: 137buck
26-Mar-24
So I have a Ram 2500 with the diesel, and it's hard on tires, I've had the duracraps, hated those tires. Super soft and I do quite a bit of gravel road driving here and those tires had five different rock punctures, and when I took them off, two of them had cut side walls on them. I was able to squeak 30k miles out of them, and that's with a 5k mile rotation, and when they were worn half way, they sounded like a TSL bogger, the high light of them were the snow and ice traction, I did like that. Next set were the Nitto Ridge grapplers, good tire, no flats, but was only able to get 35k miles out of them. Now I have the Toyo RT trails on it, So far, I'm really liking this tire, good traction in mud, snow and ice, no flats yet, and I so far only have about 4k miles on them, so we'll see how long they last.

Whatever brand you choose make sure it’s at least an E rated sidewall. Sticks can puncture lessor rated sidewalls. I’ve had it happen.

From: 12yards

DL, load rating on the Falken Wildpeaks says XL. What does that mean?

From: 12yards
27-Mar-24
I see it means "Extra Load". It's a heavier duty sidewall, but still a 4 ply.

From: SBH
27-Mar-24
That's a fact DL. You have to clarify you want the 10ply. I had some Cooper AT3 put on my truck, 10 ply and they were great tires so I put them on my wife's suburban. Didn't request the 10 ply, just assumed they would put the same ones on. 3 flats within a year and I went back and was like these tires are trash what is going on? Found out I bought 6ply tires. Won't make that mistake again.

From: RonP
27-Mar-24
12yards, the yokohama geolander AT/G015 that i recommended above come in a standard load and E load in your size, 265/65R17.

From: Nyati
27-Mar-24
So, first I’m not a tire expert. For u guys that are . I’ve been reading that load is being used in place as actual ply.

For example E load is 10 ply even though there isn’t actually 10 plys ?

Can someone clarify the difference between load and ply ? Are they even making actual 10 ply tires ? I read that ply was a term developed when they actually used cotton as the ply and 10 ply meant 10 layers of cotton. But with new technology and compounds E rating is equal to 10 ply even though it may only be 4-6 layers ?

From: 12yards
27-Mar-24
So my next question is do any of you guys consider tire weight and mpg when you choose your tires? These 10 ply or E rated tires weigh up to 10 pounds more per tire than SL tires. Does this kill your mpg? Or doesn't it make that much difference. My current Michelins weigh about 37 pounds each and I'm averaging over 22 mpg all around driving with these things. The E rated tires and 10 plys are upper 40 to near 50 #s. I've read tire weight is a big factor in mpg.

27-Mar-24
"So my next question is do any of you guys consider tire weight and mpg when you choose your tires? These 10 ply or E rated tires weigh up to 10 pounds more per tire than SL tires. Does this kill your mpg?"

Yes, I do. Unless I am driving a 3/4 or 1 ton, I do not feel E rated tires are necessary. For a truck like a Tacoma, Ranger, or Colorado, a good quality P-series/standard load are fine imo unless you are doing some serous off-roading. No question a heavier tire will affect MPG's on a smaller truck. It doesn't kill it, but it does lower it.

Here's a link for the Falken A/T3 ratings, there's one of these for each of their types of tires.

From: 12yards

Thanks RonP. I would think it would take a little more oomph to get those tires rolling. My Canyon might feel more doggy with them on.

From: DL
27-Mar-24
Tire will have the rating on the sidewall and usually the max air pressure is 80psi. You are correct about how many plus on sidewall ratings. So if you get a tire with less than an E rating you might have only a 2 ply sidewall. Costs more but where we hunters go you better have tough tires.

From: Old School

My mileage with my BFG KO2’s did go down compared to the cheap road tires that it came with used. I figure it is a very small cost when I’m on backroads elk hunting. I want a heavy 10 ply tire.

From: 12yards
29-Apr-24
Thought I'd bring this back up and post what I ended up buying. I ended up buying some Yokohama Geolander AT G015 SL tires. So far I am very happy with the purchase. They drive very smooth on the highway, are quiet, look good, and my MPG has not changed. I have not driven them offroad yet so can't comment. And obviously I can't comment on how they will wear. I don't go into rough places so believe they will do just fine. In MN I primarily deal with slippery wet, greasy two track trails in the woods. Not deep mud, but roads that are rutted and greasy when wet. My old tires slid around a lot, allowed me to be pulled into some deeper ruts. Hoping these will do better. If you don't think you'll need an LT tire but want a less aggressive AT tire that performs well on the highway, I highly recommend the Yokohamas.

Thanks for posting that link Mike. My current BFG KO2’s have about 78,000 miles on them so I’m due for some new tires in probably 10,000 miles. I’ve yet to see a tire outperform the KO2’s as far as on how long they last.

I’ve had good luck with the BFG KO 2’s as well. Currently running Toyo Open Country II, which is also a damn good tire. The Wrangler Dura Tracs that came on my Silverado were the worst tire I’ve had. They wore out quickly and were so loud the truck was undriveable at 50 000km!

After a lot of research for tires and reading just about everything I can get a hold of, I went with the Michelin LTX AT2 for my 2019 Ram 2500. I didn't want anything too aggressive, but I wanted something that would perform well on and off road. I really don't take my truck in too many rough places as I save that for my utv. I found out discount tire will price match with costco tire center, but you have to specifically tell them to compare prices with costco.

Considering the fact I spend almost all of my time driving on paved or gravel roads I usually ran a tire more fit for pavement. This time I am considering going with something a little more aggressive since there is no way I am paying what it costs to put Michelin tires on my 6 year old truck. I am looking at the Falken Widpeaks but would consider anything. Anyone have an opinion on a tire that still rides great, doesn't have a ton of road noise and is not outrageously priced like the Michelins?

I've always run Michelins, great tire. Tire guy is telling me the Toyo's are just as good.

I had a set of open country A/Ts and really wasn't super impressed with them in the snow here in WI. I bought a set of falken wildpeak AT3s last year and so far really like them

It depends on where you live and how much off roading you do.

I've tried 10 different truck tires, IMO;

The best all-around tire when you do a lot of off-roading is the Toyo Open Country. They have so much tread compared to other tires it's a joke. One set I had got 77,000.

A good tire for minor off road and a lot of highway is the Falken wild peaks. They will get flats. I had sharp rock on a gravel road in Wyoming give me a flat with these.

I've got right at 45,000 miles on a set of Falken Wildpeaks AT3's on my Silverado. I've never had a flat tire and they ride good for a little more aggressive tire but they are developing more road noise the more miles on them. Hope to get thru the summer with them and put on some new skins before winter. We have some slimy roads when they are wet out in Colorado around our place so have to be careful in that scenario. Unfortunately the worst parts are on uphill sections so have to be observant of road conditions. Never had traction issues with snow but slimy mud is their downfall. I'm sure the Wildpeak MT's would be better though.

I just bought a 2013 F150 for my son that had Toyo Open Country AT2s on. It sounded like a lumber wagon on the road. These were probably fairly old and somewhat cupped. A stiff 10 ply tire. I put a Uniroyal highway tire on it (actually made by Michelin) and it made an unbelievable difference in quietness on the road. But my son will primarily be driving on the road as he will be going off to school.

Bowfreak, I was in the same boat as you when I started this thread. I wanted a quiet tire with some offroad capability on my Canyon. I bought the Yokohama Geolander AT G015 and they are great for highway driving and low noise. My mpg hasn't changed from the Michelins I had on previously. Haven't really had them in an offroad situation. They performed fine on gravel roads. Of course I have no idea how long they will last. But so far I am impressed with them and they look pretty good too.
