Looking for LT truck tire Recommendations'

37 posts in this topic

Thank you for taking the time to read this! Supply and demand is driving me crazy… I have 29,000 miles on my Nitto Ridge Grapplers (275/70/18’s)  on a stock 19’ f-150 xlt 6.5’ bed. 1 tire is totally shot, 2nd doesn’t have much time left, 3&4 look brand new. I have rotated every 4k miles, truck drives straight and smooth with no evidence of anything out of alignment etc… 

 

The Ridge Grapplers look awesome, but have sucked on the icey / wet roads of the last two winters with a light truck (even with the bed weighted). I am unable to find 2 replacement Ridges’, or even 2 or 4 Terra grapplers. That would have been my 2nd choice as I was told I could start with 2 and then swap out the other 2 a little down the line. 

 

I’ve had Cooper atv3 on my last truck – I would go back to them, BF K02’s on my bronco –they were half way decent. 

 

Sticking with an aggressive looking LT what else should I be looking at?
General Grabber at/x

Falken Wildpeak A/t3w

Toyo Open Country AT’s

 

I appreciate comments on what you have been happy with. Thank you!

Falken without a doubt. Smoothest tires for LT/SUV I've ever had, good in rain and snow, Japanese company from Kobe makes tires in Tonawanda NY. I have Generals on my Jeep TJ and they can be tough to get balanced right for some reason

This. 25k on mine so far. Will get them again

I put over 75k on the last set of five ATIIs rotating in the spare with plenty of tread life left for another handful of rotations. Only replaced early because of supply issues last year.  I've had them on the past two vehicles and do not have plans to switch. Great mileage and road handling.

I need a mathematician to help me with a formula and a result.

 

I have tires with a 50,000 mile tread life

I rotate my tires every 5,000 miles

I include the spare tire in the rotation

 

What is the minimum total miles expected until they need to be replaced?

Depends on what part of New Jersey.

Rolls for 20k sits out for 5k rolls another 20k sits out 5k rolls another 10k to get to 50k tread life 

So 60k miles until all 5 hit 50 thousand ?? 

Just spit balling ?
