Re: Tires For My Truck


I'm running General grabber HTS on my 250...they came stock and I continue to use them. Don't expect high mileage from a soft, sticky tire,. I'm only getting 20K out of them, but I attribute them to saving my life two years ago when I was involved in a high speed, wet pavement interstate collision with road debris when a car in front of me got obliterated by a tractor trailer and I went airborne but still managed to keep control of my vehicle.

I had two go around with General grabber's HTS on a 250 as well. They don't last long.

I am 8 months or so on Michelin's M/S
Deep treads. So far so good. We'll see.

Re: Tires For My Truck


Iíve been running Michelin Ltx m/s2 tires. Had one set go 110k on a suburban, they just started to hit the wear bars on 1 tire and I figured I got my money out of them. Going on 80k I think on the Excursion tires. Still looking decent but getting down there, but Iím planing on replacing them in the next 10k or so.

My truck came with General Grabbers street tires from the factory, I did not put 28,000 miles on them before replacing

i just replaced front pads on my half ton chevy at 95k....and really wouldn't have had to. rears look great.

think it's a driving habit. i'm used to hauling equipment around on lowboy trailer, and try to let the engine do most of the braking. i'll also NEVER follow anybody closer than the 3 second rule. i want an out.

Lucky to get 95k here on 2 sets of brakes

If you lived in the NY/NJ area if you left 3 sec between cars, yours would be stopped or rammed from behind. Most of the time we can see what radio station the car in front of us is listening to.

Re: Tires For My Truck


Bought my Nitto ridge grapplers last December 28th. Rotated every 5k. Now at 15k, they are at 4/32.
Never buying Nitto again.
Probably going back to Duratracs.

I couldn't wrap my head around the price of Nitto here, made Michelin look cheap.

Nittos are expensive and don't last for squat.

Re: Tires For My Truck


Nobody is mentioning Goodyear...they any good? I got slammed last month replacing the truck tires, this month it's the Titanium fusions turn. I had a set of Goodyear F1 summer tires the car was shipped with and 20K later, they're shot.

Had it in for a check up and oil change the other day at Ford where a good friend is the service manager and he told me they were running a special on F2's...$707.00 later with alignment, new tires and a check up...I didn't think it was too bad. Additionaly using the Ford card, I'm getting $140.00 back in rebates in the form of a gift card that I'll probably toss over to the wifey as a stocking stuffer.

Goodyear rubber is soft. They tend to wear quicker, but ride nice and grip well. Imo.

Re: Tires For My Truck


My Goodyear f1 supercar tires on my Camaro are dead after 10,000 miles.

Good thing I only put on about 2500 a year on the car...haha

Re: Tires For My Truck


Around here there are some tire shops (and private owners too) who will advertise on craigslist. There are people buying new trucks that will be used for plowing and the treads aren't aggressive enough to suit them. So they re-tire almost as soon as they take delivery.

You can sometimes pick up new or next to new name brand 10 ply for great prices. Last set I got was a Michelin LTX AT/2 LT275/70r18 for $450....I was looking at $240 per tire otherwise.

If you live in a snow area and have the leisure of looking in advance of needing, you might save some coin.
