Tires


Recommended Posts

Have a 2017 Silverado crew cab regular bed. Currently running 285/65/18 dura Trac that I hate and are done for. Was thinking about 265/65/18 or 265/70/18 either nitto terra grapplers, fallen wildpeaks, or maybe Cooper discoverers (I ran those on my Colorado and loved them)

Does feedback on any of the above tires if they run them on full-size trucks? Specifically looking for wet traction and snow traction

Thanks!

I love the ones you hate..... duratracs have treated me the best and I'm scared to switch. They get noisey when they are low, but that usually takes a long time. I've got 45k out of a set and they still passed inspection. Currently running 35's on a 2500 w/16k and they are halfway chewed. I'd be curious to see what treat you better than them. Good luck on you decision!

I've tried them all.  Doesn't matter what I buy, they are toast in one season. Towing everyday during the spring, summer and fall wears them out fast, and I rotate every 6000 miles.  Last year I tried the cheapest mud and snow tires from Walmart.  Lasted just as long as the expensive $1200+ for 4. Just put new tires on last week. $810 with mounting.

Another :up: for the Falken Wildpeak AT3W . Best truck tire I've had in a very long time . Like Rob-C , mine are going into their 3rd winter .  Put them on in Nov of 2021 . Truck was inspected in Sept and still had 85 percent of the tread left after over 25K miles .

The last set of Mastercraft tires ( made by Cooper ) I had on wore down to  under 50 percent at 20K  miles .

Pass on the Nitto Terras. I see a lot of people where they came stock on some off road focused Toyota Pro models. People widely pan them. Ridge Grapplers seem to be more popular but again, they’re not in that same ballpark as some of the other options.

Wildpeak AT3 are three peak rated. I believe they had a slight redesign a short while back. Mostly in their weight construction, and some reviewers noted a lesser experience with the newer versions vs the older heavier models. I don’t think it’s super common but it’s there. I think most people are happy with them. Cost wise they seem smart too.

I went with Toyo Open County AT3 which are also three peak rated and have had good luck with them too. More money but I also got C load. I’m three years in and around 26K miles and expect to get a while longer out of them.

It's a trade-off IMO.  You can either get a tire that is amazing in snow or you can get a tire that lasts. 

True . The best is a set of summer tires on rims and a set of winter tires on rims . I started our kids that way when they were teens now as adults on their own they refuse to drive on “ on seasons “ 3pmsf included in the winter , but they’re driving cars not 4x4 . It’s also good to go narrower on winter tires if you drive a lot in heavy snow .

Some say that’s to much money , lol you only drive on,one set at a time,the tire shops swap them for free if you bought them there, and how much is your insurance deductible if you slide into something ?  That aside the increased safety factor , is really what we go for .

Duratrac tire's were great when it came to snow and mud but good lord did they get loud after 25k miles. I'll never buy them again. Before the Duratrac's I had the Wildpeaks but those I somehow wore out in less than 30k while everyone else reports getting 50k miles out of them. Now that I have the F250 and it's primary focus is towing I think I am just going to stick to an all season highway tire and hopefully get 60k miles out of a set.
