I need some feed back on what tires you think are best for a ford F 250 HD XLT with a plow We get lots of snow up in New England so I need all terrian but what i wont to know is what brand etc.. Works best for this truck in your opinion all reply's will be helpful so I can make a better informed decision about what tires work best for this truck. thank you for your help.
BFG A/T's if you want to spend the money. That's what I have on my truck and I love 'em. A cheaper alt. are the Cooper A/T's - they are a softer tire so you won't get the miles out of them but you also spend less $$ than the BFG's!!
I live on the side of an old ski mountain in NH and we get a good deal of snow and ice,and I currently have the BFG's on my F-250 CC LB. I am not impressed with them and when I replace the tires this summer I will be going with Toyo's or Coopers. I had Coopers on my F-150 and hardly ever needed to put it in 4x4. With the BFG's I found myself needing 4 Hi quite often.
IMO they don't clean out very well and you end up with loaded treads.
They are OK, and I think there are better tires out there for comparable or even cheaper money.
Bridestone A/T Dueller Revo AQ-II's. Rated better than BFG in water and snow handling, in treadwear longevity, and are less expensive (though still not cheap). I know many former BFG die-hards who won't go back after running the Revo's. They got tired of replacing the BFG's every 30K, did the research on an alternative, and found a superior tire in the Revo. It's rated #1 this year, BTW. That's where I'll be going to after my Michelin's finally wear out. (58K and still a decent amount of tread left, but @ $180/tire, sorry!)
Just my $.02, do your own research, you'll see...
Bridgstone AT REVO's are great tires. I have a set of them on a Toyota Landcruiser. Excellent ride, handling and decent off road. But - and it's a bigg but - LOL - nobody knows how long they are going to last. Ratings are just ratings until somebody get's 60,000 miles out of a set and they hold up for five years of road duty.
BFG's balanced and rotated properly can give you 50,000 miles easy. I have a set with 47,000 miles on them and they can probably go another 7,000 easy. I've consistently gotten at least 45,000 out of every set I've ever run.
Another promising tire is the Nitto Terra Grappler. It is fast becoming very popular and I plan to run a set in the near future. I'm just tired of the BFG AT's. I want a change. I'm also going to run a 295 75 R16 and that basically leaves you with three choices: BFG AT, Nitto TG or Toyo AT.
If you are going to run 265's or 285's there's a world of choices.
