    Default Re: Truck tires that actually wear

    BFG AT KO are what I have. Came on a used vehicle I bought. Very capable tire ( probably well beyond what OP needs performance wise though....). Picked the vehicle up a friend's place, a very long way from home. I haven't pushed these tires hard, but was testing the 4x4 system on a 30 degree grass slope at my friend's place - 2wd did pretty well, 4x4 hardly needed more than just off-idle to go up the slope, with zero wheel spin. Rock Crawler summed up their characteristics well.

    My KOs are getting noisy; age and probable lack of regular rotation before I got them contributing. Many tires, esp AT, will noise-up with time/wear.

    What OP may get with this KO line (if still available) is the desired lifespan. I'll usually spend time on TireRack.com reading reviews for a specific tire before buying...... I look for similar/same vehicle application and load/use profiles. Where some people get into trouble is HD pickup trucks running E LTs at 80psi w/o any payload almost all the time - rear tires centre bald not the surprising result. Sounds like OP has plenty of regular payload, so shouldn't be an issue....

    Neighbour picked a Dodge Sprinter just off-lease for his HVAC business. Got fed up getting on and off job sites (or even just snow covered sloped pavement....) and put 4 AT KO2 on the Sprinter - loves 'em. Enough so, he put 4 on his Armada.

    Don't know the lifespan of KO2 as well as KO - again, before opening my wallet, I'd spend time reading all the consumer reviews I can find, watching for closest match to my application.....

    Well, no BFG by me. Myself, I prefer to stay with a local tire dealer as I end up needing service invariably. The Michelin dealer said they would comp me something for the wear. I didn't have the truck when I stopped so no #s. I stopped to see what else they may have and the tire I have is still what they recommend. The other dealer had Cooper and Toyo.....

    My RAM came with Transforce tires. I will not get 20,000 miles out of them. The pressures are checked and the tires are rotated routinely. These tires are why I am reading this post.

    I have heard that alot. I have gransforce tires on my gooseneck....but a trailer is a bit different.

    I actually like the loose of them....they look like they would make a great snow tire based on what the tread looks like.

    But have read many accounts of people saying they wear out quickly
    ".........there is only one way to find out."
    "Ok, hold my beer and watch this.........."

    I need new tires on my 3500. This truck is used for towing our travel trailer and tractor. Snow is never a problem. The truck is never used for anything except towing. Does anyone have a suggestion? I need an E rated tire.

    That is crazy to me your not getting good mileage out of the Toyo's

    I put a set on my f350 and got almost 80k out of them. But most of my miles were flat open highway.

    But they were so good when those one wore out i got the exact same set. That set i bet i am close to 40k on and i still have over 50% tread.

    I also don't drive like a grandma in a buick either!!

    Toyo on my f150 main farm truck were terrible . Bald at 20'000 and following Michelins seem too soft and keep getting punctures . I get better value with cheap Chinese tyres they last as good at half the cost .

    Toyo M55. Off and on road. A tire to withstand PNW gravel log roads and survive unscathed. Cost more than the others. Wear like iron. Perform like a champ. I don't know what a flat tire is, I think it is some thing other guys get.
