My Silverado came with Goodyear Wrangler SR-A LT265/70R18/E. They are pretty quiet.

All my trucks for the past 20+ years I've always ran BF Goodrich All Terrains. I run, highway, dirt roads, off road trails, mud, snow and they have never let me down. There are many different tires out there that many people will say are the best. There are definitely differences in the performance between them. Some better for certain conditions so depending on where you are and the types of driving you do you need to find what will work the best for that.

When I bought my 2 year old truck in 2007 it had MTZs on it and after 2 years the cords were showing through the threads grooves.
The spare BFG has been used since then and after 9 years it still is the best tire on the truck.
My next tires are going to be BFG for sure.

I used to run BFG All terrains on my truck or Michelins. That's was before I had a family. Now I will run pretty much any 10 Ply Load range E tire. I Just put on a set of definitey Dakota AT on my truck LRE 10 ply. They are made in the usa.

Michelin LTX M/S 2. Great tire, super quiet, awesome in severe weather, 70,000 mile warranty. No problems with them whatsoever...and they've taken a beating with the potholes this winter. Only drawback....235.00 a tire.

I bought four Michelin LTX M/S 2, LT245/75R16 LRE at Costco at the beginning of the year for $791.00, including balance and installation, lifetime rotation, balance, and nitrogen purge/inflation.

x2. Always ran either All Terrains or Mud Terrains on my F250. Standard size is 265 but I have currently got 285's fitted. They are never going to get you out of a mud hole but general grip and mileage-wise they are superb. I get a min of 50k miles on a set as long as I rotate regularly. Never had a puncture either. Suggest you go with stock size AT's for best overall performance and gas mileage. MT's will give you that extra bit of grip if you regularly drive on wet grass or in muddy conditions.

I pull a 5th wheel with the Michelin LTX M/S 2 -E rated tire and have had no issues what so ever. You need to keep them aired up correctly and rotate them every 5,000 to 6,000 miles and I expect to get 70,000 miles in tire life out of them.

I have a 2008, 2500 Ram Mega Cab with the 6.7L Cummins, and I pull a 318SAB Cougar total GCW is 18,400LBS.
