What Tires is Ford Using on 6.2 w FX4 Package

I ordered with the FX 4 package and did not upgrade the rims. So it'll come with 17 inchers. Reason Im asking is I have BF Goodrich TA KO's and am thinking about having them swap them to the new truck, since I only have about 15000 miles on them. I hade one super duty with Continental Contra Trac TRs and absolutely hated them, they weren't worth a dang in snow what so ever. Switched to BF Goodrichs and have loved them ever since.

Just seeing what everyone is receiving for tires on their new rides and whether they are happy with them

Thanks

I got the Michilans on mine, but I did get the 18's with the wheel upgrade. From what I have been seeing on here the most with the 17's are getting the Conti's. You might be better of having the dealer change for you if they are willing.

Mine came with 17" Bf Rugged trails. They are very quiet and ride well but are not the best in the snow.

Mines a Lariat FX4 with every bell Ford has to offer. Has the Lariat style 18" wheels and Conti's, which are the worst tires in snow I've ever been on. You could kill yourself driving in the snow. I think Ive had Hoosier slicks with more traction.

$55k truck with FX4 offroad package and junk tires.....

Thanks Ford!!!

I think all the 4wd trucks have been coming with Michelins since April. I havent seen any new ones on the lot of late with Contis myself.

My FX4 came with 18" Michelin LTX A/T2's. Good tires. Had 'em on my F150 too.

So these Michelins are all LTX AT2's. Does anyone know if they are worth a dang in the snow?? Still no truck yet to worry about anyhow...Dealer said mine was the only one without positive news, and they were hoping by the end of the week it would have a build date. Might be the last 2011 Superduty at the rate it's going!

Thanks,

Mine did fine last winter, no complaints here. Combine that with the traction control, etc, and it makes the truck very stable on snow/ice.
