This'll get heated if the same folks show up in this post as one from a while back.  :chuckle:

I've had every aggressive A/T you can buy pretty much, and BY FAR the best performer has been the Goodyear Duratrac. The only downside is they're the noisest "A/T" I've had, but they're not M/T loud.

Yep, I love them, just not the price.

I think going to try these.

I've had great experiences with 2 sets of Toyo Open Country A/T III. Great traction. Pretty quiet, but not silent. The reviews are excellent.

Tires are waaaaay over priced right now, IF you can find what you want in stock!  I have had great luck w Falken at3w. But, I have a small cut in my sidewall, a replacement tire, after mount and balance would be $550, for ONE tire!! But, they are out of stock completely, they donít expect them for at least 90 days!

Walmart has goodyear wranglers for like $150 per tire. Most of those trucks with big $500ea knobby tires are pavement queens at a fashion show.

Best truck tire I have owned are Michelin LTX M/S2.  Ride great, good grip on wet and snow.  I do swap them out for Blizzaks which is the best option for me.  After the initial investment it's about the same cost long term and you get better tires during both seasons.

I buy the most expensive highway 10 ply that discount tire has (still not enough to break the bank).  I drove on logging roads more than most, and getting stuck is not my issue, tire punctures are.  The only time I've been stuck with these is in 1' of snow, and then I just throw on my ice cleats and keep on trucking.

My personal opinion is that unless you're going muddin', which most of us really aren't, a highway tire with more plies will last longer, drive smoother and make you overall happier.  Note, they don't look "cool".

I am running the Nitto Ridge Grapplers on my F-350.  I have liked them so far.  They seem to be a good match with the truck.

How many miles are you guys getting out of the Maxx on 3/4 and 1 tons?
For whatever reason people seem to inflate the answers of mileage on tires they buy.  I got 25,400 out of Toyos at, which was horrible.  I am now on the Les Schwab equivalent.  Iím at 28,000 and have about 40% left but donít like the tire itself that much.  Wanting to try coopers next but not really interested in going through another set of tires in 25k miles.

Sounds like you already ordered, but for anyone else looking: Nitto ridge grapplers. I just put a second set on my f150. First set I put 60,000 miles on. Got a set going on the wifeís 4Runner this week. From Discount Tire :tup: Performed really for me. Including a couple trips to Montana in November. We all know what those trips are like!

So I took a gamble and bought a cheap set of off brand 35ís for my 3/4 ton cummins. It was $900 out the door, dirt cheap. They were kanati trail hogs. Iím very pleased with them. I had 35k on them and sold the truck they probably had 20% ish left. They are the off brand equivalent to the Goodyear wrangler duratrac

I have been getting just over 35,000 miles on my S/T max tires 295/70r18
1 ton gas Ford. I like them for the farm and spend a lot of time on gravel. I always struggle to get any tire to last close to 30,000-35,000 miles. Once they get down to 25% they get pretty soft and are prone to rocks pushing through tread and I have also had ply separation(big blisters on tread) when I get below 20%. I am almost through my third set on this pickup.

I have The Cooper discoverer at3 on my Gmc 3500 4x4. 27k miles can hardly notice any wear. Did great in 2ft of snow on my moose hunt in 2019 rated for 60k mile and loadE

I'm at 27k and counting on my gmc 3500 truck weighs 8400. They hardly have any wear

Ive got just under 91k on my Michelin AT. Not exaggerating! They are almost to the wear bars on the very outside, probably another 10-15k worth of tread in the center. Tough tires, but not off-road tread. That said, they do better than youíd think, to look at them. Currently around 250,ea at costco.

Thatís on a Ram 2500 diesel 4x4.

I bought les schwabs open range all terrain on my super duty.  Put them on end of the year and have 18k miles on them. Ford garage says there's still 90% tread left.  Warranty is 60k miles.  I like them so much I put them on my wife's Tahoe.  Her warranty is 65k miles.  A bit pricey for sure but my stock tires lasted me only 25k miles. Should be well worth it

So your best bet will be the durra tracks or a Toyo. If you have a god relationship with your local Les swab I would get a set of Toyos. Right now I'm running the MasterCraft razors but you said you don't need a mud tire. And I don't think they are 10 ply. But all and all most of these tires are going to preform almost identical.

Firestone Transforce A/T is a great tire. Ran a set of transforce A/Ts on my F350 for a LONG time. Highly recommend them. Ended up buying a set of Falken Wildpeak A/Ts last spring from Tires West in Warden. So far, very good with the Falkens. They are quiet, and ride smooth. Give both of these tires a look!

Bought some in June for my silverado. Good grip and just as important to me, they are quiet.

 My Cooper A/T 3 on my colorado, though the tread is lasting very well are square and loud. Not terrible loud, but slightly irritating loud.

Iím running the Cooper at3 xlt on my 2020 ram 2500. Very good grip and wear so far. About 13k on them and plenty of tread left. I was worried about tread chipping off like my toyos did. Nothing like that so far. Good grip in snow and wet pavement. Lots of logging road miles and performing great.

Turns out that the st maxx are not the correct load speed rating because I have a king ranch they have to be at least a 126q so time well wasted with them ordering the tires for me. So they said they will match price on a few different tires. One being the duratrac. Anyone have any input on these being they donít have a mileage warranty.. truck is mainly for hunting camping and that sort have a company vehicle for work so mileage warranty is not necessarily needed. Thanks to all!

I am running Cooper STT Proís on my F350 now. I have 37000 on them and they are still at approximately 40%. They have been a good tire. On my F150 I ran the Cooper AT3ís and they are the best tire Iíve ever had for traction in wet and snow. I used to be a die hard BFG Mud Terrain guy. They lasted a long time but noisy and didnít perform as well.

I had a lot of history with Michelin A/T and A/T2s, which are excellent.
I decided to try Cooper and was not impressed with their wet and snow performance.
I went to Falken ATW3s and they have been excellent on my F150.
Smooth, quiet, and lots of use on basalt cobble and no chunking.
I'm at, I think, 41k now and they easily have another year left, I'll look at them next fall and decide if I need a new set for the winter.
