I have the BF Goodrich Rugged Trail T/A's (LT265/70R17 E) on my F-250. This is the second set and I'm averaging about 40-45K miles on them.

What ever brand you buy make sure it is a minimum of E rated. This rating works and wears good on my chevy 3500 towing frequently. Trailers are another story. Buy tires to give you at least 125% of the GVW of the trailer. This will eliminate those wunderful roadside stops to change a blowout.

I have a set of Kumho tires. They ride and wear very well.

Had Kumho and they were OK. I have had the best service and life from Michelin and Bridgestone.
