Hi all. Just wondering if I could get some tried and true recommendations on replacement tires for my 2018 F150. Currently has Goodyear factory LT 275/65R18. I have about 55,000 miles on them. Local Firestone dealer checked with gauge and the are at either 9/32 or 10/32. He said I still have life in them. He said once they get down to 4/32 they should be replaced. Here is what I do:
Travel from downstate to U.P. about twice a month
Go out on numerous 2 tracks. These may include stone, mud, snow etc
Tow a smaller 15ft boat. Looking to upgrade to 18-20 ft boat.
Been looking at Mastercraft, Toyo Open Country III, Michelin LT Atx, etc type tires. Need them to be quiet on road, work well on the trail and have a warranty. Any and all recommendations are appreciated! Thanks!

I just put a set of Bridgestone's on my 13 Silverado. Real happy so far, but no snow yet. I have a set of Bridgestone Blizzak snow tires I run in the winter. Blizzaks are great for snow and ice, but ain't worth a damn in the mud. New tires are very quiet.

I've been extremely pleased with the Pirelli Scorpion All Terrian Plus that I put on my '16 F150 Supercrew about 50,000 miles ago. They seem to hook up far better in wet or icy conditions than the stock good years ever did, and are really "sporty" to drive when the weather is good. My only real original fear was tow rating with my boat, but they've done great.

I swapped out a set a little over a year ago on my F-150 and put on a set of B.F. Goodrich All Terrain TA's the old standby and really like them.
I second the B.F.G ALL TERRAIN i have had 2 sets on my f150 swapped them out when new
truck rode much better and have got over 80 thousand miles per set current one is pushing 90 it needs to be replaced.Great tire.

The original factory Pirelli's were some of the harshest tires that I've ever driven on, especially when cold.
I agree All Terrains are firm but ride very nice.
I don't drive much any longer, I bet I haven't put on 5000 miles in a year.

I put Coopers (don't remember which ones) on my '12 F150 this summer and like them so far. I haven't tested them in the snow yet but they gripped pretty well in the mud.

Toyo open country M/T's ....... Just replaced mine after 80K and 5 years and they had another 10K but I do to much mudding. Can go through just about anything with these tires and they ride great/quietly on highway. Definitely one of the more expensive but 100% worth it.

I also recommend the bfg all terrain's I put a set on my 2008 silverado. They ride nice . They handle well . I spend a lot time on 2 tracks they have not let me down. I have taken several trips from the U.P. to Troy Mi to visit my daughter. 80mph on I75 is not a problem.
now that they are worn they are getting a little noisier, but not obnoxious. I've been stuck only once with them It was my fault . I mistakenly took a snowmobile trail off a backwoods lake When I realized my error . I tried backing up to get back out on the lake . I ended up dropping the left side of the truck off of the hard packed trail in to the waist deep fluff. With 5 below zero temps spurring me on It was nothing that 2 hrs and a come along and a shovel couldnt fix.

Go with the Michelin LT Atx. You'll never be disappointed. Very quiet and dependable tires with good winter traction. That's all I ever put on my truck.

Just last week I had Google direct me down the ugly mother of all seasonal roads to get to a location near Hillman. This thing was a chewed up, water filled beast and I don't think that I ever even spun the All Terrains.

I've had those in the past but they vibrated and made noise like heck on the highway.

I can imagine on certain surfaces that they could hum. I can't swear as to exactly when it happened but they have been slightly redesigned from the originals.
If I was still doing the downstate/Petoskey round trip I wouldn't of bought them, but I'm rarely on freeways now.
