My 2000 250 4x4 Superduty Supercab came with the Goodyears and I had the
Ford Dealer switch in my own new Michelin LTX M/S Tires. I ask the shop
folks their opinion of the tire swap and the Quote was "The Michelins are
twice as good a tire as the Goodyears that come on the new 2000." I just ran
4 of the Michelin LTX for 50+ K miles on my 90 F250 most of those miles with
a 9 1/2 foot camper on board.
Also I concur with running the tires at max rated air pressure when
loaded. Also higher pressures than the typical minimums when not loaded will
increase mileage. I had very good success on my 90 F250 running the tires 80
pounds loaded and 55 pounds unloaded.

No I am not a Michelin salesman. I am Game Warden with 22 years of
backcountry road expierence.
By the way I run Goodyears on the 96 Explorer.

I have a set of the Michelin LTX's on an 89 Bronco II. Must be close to
60K if not 70K on them. While it's a much ligher vehicle, I'd agree
they are a very good tire. Excellent road tire, but marginal off road.

I also rotate regularly and monitor the air pressure.

I am looking at going to BFG all terrains on the SD and the BroncoII
for the next round though.

Well Everyone My Truck goes in on Tuesday For the ford fix. The body shop
manager says there was a recall on this, and it doesn't matter if its under
warranty or not. So its cool. I hope they do a good job and right now the
managers getting the info on how to fix it, straight from the ford
engineers. So I'll keep you guys posted onto what kind of solution they come
up with..
