Tires..........one of my favourite non electrical topics.
"you get what you pay for" applies here.
Tires are a critical component of any vehicle.
Generally speaking, the newer model tires are the costliest as they feature the latest technology in tires.
for excellent reviews on many tires from people who actually own them. If you are looking for truck based highway tires, start here.. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/surveyresults/surveydisplay.jsp?type=HAS
We've run everything from no name tires, to Hankook DynaPros, to BF Goodrich Long Trail T/As to Michelins on our trucks.
I have to say, although they cost more, the Michelin LTX M/S are the best tires we have ever run thus far. Excellent traction in all conditions, and longest lasting.
If you need winter truck tires, check out the Pirelli Scorpion Ice and Snow. We bought a set based on the tirerack consumer reviews and can agree that they are the best snow tires we've ever owned.
