Do any of you have recommendations for good tires?
The best tires in the world for your truck is Michelin XPS. Expensive, but you're worth it. The XPS will outlast any other tire in size LT245/75R16E, and the commercial haulers then recap the tire and drive another 40,000 or 50,000 miles.
The XPS is available in highway rib and aggressive traction treads. I ran both treads over the 12 years I owned by F-250 diesel. The ribs give better MPG and last longer, so I ran those the last couple of times I bought new tires. Here's the XPS Ribs:
And here's the traction:
Note that the XPS Traction is no longer available in size LT245/75R16E. So if you want the traction tread, then use the size I used: LT235/85R16E.
