My tow vehicle is an 08' F150 Supercrew 4x4; tire size is 275/65 - 18. Looking for a great set of tires that will last many miles and be very quiet on the highway. The last two sets I've run were the BFG Rugged Trails. I'm considering sticking with them or moving to the Michelin LTX M/S 2. Would love some input from the forum.

Does a highway tread tire satisfy your needs, or do you require all Season/All Terrain?

but to add some worth to this thread, i will be getting BFG all terrains for my 150. best tires IMO also ill never recommend a michelin tire to anyone. its apparently a 60k tire, and theyre already dry rotted out.

You should give the General Grabber AT2 a whirl. Same wet, mud and snow performance, better ice performance and cheaper. I went through 6 sets of BFG AT's on my previous F150 (sold it at 451,000 miles) so I know the BFG tires well.

You won't be disappointed in either. I am a big fan of the General Grabber AT2 and in P-metric form, there is a 60,000 mile tread life warranty. You would be plenty happy with this tire as well.

Very good results with the Michelin LTX on multiple vehicles here. They are hard to wear out, very smooth and quiet. You do pay for it.
I have also had good results with the BFG AT. Long lasting but not as quiet as the LTX.

I recently put some Dunlop Rovers on my F150 about 6k ago so far so good

Zero complaints here about the LTX M/S tires. Excursions, F-*50s, Yukon, Expeditions.

i have LTX M/S on my 150 now. theyre super dry rotted and provide zero traction with half tread.

If you have to do any off-roading do yourself a favor and stay far away from the Michelins. A friend of mine has a company 3/4 ton with the Michelin LTX tires and using it at our deer lease he went through 6 tires in 2 years.

FWIW, I've got the General Grabbers on my Silverado. Got about 6K miles on them, with no visible wear. Previous tires were Firestone Destinations, and I could literally watch the tread wear down. I haven't noticed any significant tread noise on the freeway, but I've usually got the windows up and the stereo on.

My Ford F150 came with General Grabbers got 100k before they needed replacing so I got another set and got 60k on them before replacing, now Dunlop Rovers I like the Dunlops better so far

you can up bump up your size to a 285 and fill the fender well and will not rub

I am running Kuhmo's 285's
