I have the RF10s on my truck and so far am very happy with them. 38,000 miles and still plenty of tread left. I had Toyo all terrains on before and at 30,000 they were pretty much shot.

I put 6 new BF Goidrich TA K2's on my Dually. Look great and are monsters in snow and ice. They are wearing great and have no road noise like my old TAs. Highly recommend them.

I had the Hankook's on my truck when I traded it in. They seemed too squishy when towing. I would not buy them again.

I've run General Grabbers LT for the last two sets. They've been good tires. Mileage around 45K. Next set this fall will be Michelin LTX M/S2. Unbeatable mileage and performance. A little more expensive but you get what you pay for.

I have liked the 2 sets of F-stones I've had.

I would second the BFG's. I just bought the third set last week at a Discount Tire. 89K miles and still not down to the wear indicators. Never a single problem in 3 sets.

Whatever tire you buy:

Check the date of manufacture stamped in code on every tire made to make sure it is less than 7 years old (or as new as you can get, usually less than 1 year).

If it is an "off brand" tire, find out which plant / who made it.

It may not be exactly the same as the name brand tire made in the facility, but at least the maker is not about to make a product with a critical defect.

Like the imported tires that were recalled...
