    About time to replace tires on my f150, what do you suggest? The truck came with Goodyear Wranglers and I'm not impressed, terrible squirrelly in snow and rain.

    Is it 4x4, limited slip, or just a car?

    Depends on what you want to do with the truck....

    A good set of all terrains are nice if you are in mild offroad conditions and do well on the highway, while all seasons are fine if you are strictly on the pavement....

    If it ever sees anything rougher than a hard pack dirt road get some decent all-terrains.

    Hankook Dynastars, Milestar Patagonias, etc...

    My brother talked me into putting Uniroyal Tiger Paws on my Z71 some years ago (Dodge Diesel 4x4 these days). The tiger paws worked quite well for me. I do more highway than off road so usually go for an aggressive street tread. Actually considered a second set of rims so I could save the off road tires but my all.purpose vehicle seemed better served by all purpose tires

    Had Goodyear Dura tracs on a Squarebody, good highway manners and weren’t loud. Those things ripped in the snow and mud.

    I have Cooper AT3s on my 2500HD. I had their ST all seasons before. Both work OK in snow. Any wet dirt and the all seasons were useless. But they lasted 70,000 miles. The AT3s are better in the rain. I buy Coopers because I spend a lot of time towing In UT and ID where the speed limit is 80. Only Cooper and BF Goodrich are rated that fast. With Toyos and Nittos I had at least 1 failure every trip. Never 1 with Coopers. Had the same problem with trailer tires. I have BFG All Terrain TAs on it. 5 years and no problems. And we make 1 trip to LA every winter. The trailer tires increased the braking on the trailer in the snow. And it stays straight. I put about 6500 miles a year on that trailer. The tires still look new. I will replace them in a year or so just on age.

    With limited info I would say quality all season. Trying to get a bit aggressive . All my pickups have all season. Extra load.
    I really haven’t been thrilled with most all terrain tires on the highway. Singing.

    My Coopers don't make any real noise. I have had BFG All Terrain ATs that were loud. I don't hear them on the trailer though.

    Michelin Defender LTX. Yes, average a tad more $$ but with rotations once in a while last a long time.

    I have P265/70R17 Michelin Defenders on my '16 4Runner Trail Premium and they are great in the dirt, gravel farm roads and muddy fields. I bass fish small lakes with no ramps and don't have any trouble pulling a 16' boat up over the bank and up wet hills to the gravel road.

    They are also great on the Outer Banks' beaches as well at 18 psi. I've never used the snatch strap or the maxtrax and that suits me just fine.

    I don't even use the 4Lo, locking rear diff, or any of the electronic traction gizmos. 4Hi with the traction control turned off is all it takes.

    AT with a 50-60K treadlife warranty. If you dont really haul or tow/pull anything or off road go with the lesser ply of the AT's they come in a couple different styles/plys you dont need the heavy duty ones.

    I run these on all the cars/vehicles I can get them for. Great tires

    I can also recommend the BFG AT's they are great tires BUT those actually ARE on that heavier I think 6 ply list and not really needed

    Also had awesome luck with Pro Comps these were also relatively quiet(on a Nissan Frontier) and were great highway,snow,off road

    the only other ones I have direct experience with and recommend are the Cooper A/T tires had those on a Honda Passport(aka Isuzu Rodeo) and they were great also.

    other good ones I considered but have never got because of the $$$$ was the Firestone Destination A/T's they simply were just never on sale and i could never get a good deal on them when I was looking..all the rest were on sale from buy 3 get 1 free to up to and in a couple cases over $100 off.

    I have used Wild Country AT from Les Schwab for my last two sets of tires. I like the tire and like the company. They both will treat you right.
