    Dually Truck Tires and Heavy Towing.....Tire Choices You Like Best..

    So I'm getting ready to replace the tires on my 2016 F350 Dually 4x4 in then next couple of months and I'm looking for experienced answers for tire selection. I'll start off with saying that I've been looking at the Cooper AT3 tires and a lot of what I read about them are positive. So my question is....what have you guys used that you would buy again...or stay away from based on your experience with them.

    I really like to have responses that relate specifically to my setup.....4x4 Dually and towing heavy. My trailer is a 20K GVWR Momentum, so towing a 10K trailer with an F250 will probably not really answer my question.....Thanks in advance and let me know.

    I've always liked Michelin tires and since my last F-350 DRW came with them, that is what I would have replaced them with - OEM Michelins.

    I looked at the Michelin LTX for the truck and read a lot of reviews....and they are all over the place. It seems if you are towing heavy like I am, they don't get great wear....and even more disturbing is I saw several folks talk about how sketchy they were in the wet and or a little slippery/muddy area. So they are somewhat on the back burner for my application.

    I put Goodyear Duratracs on my truck about a year before I sold it. Those tires handled loaded and unloaded use fairly well. I liked them a lot for when we would go on forest or BLM land. They arent cheap, about $250 each. I'd say my setup was very close to yours. It was a huge difference over the stock BF Goodrichs.

    I had those on my last truck and really loved them. They met all my expectations except they're were a little on the noisy side on dry pavement at higher speeds. Great thread wear and traction.

    Me too, I have always bought Michelins unless they were not available for the vehicle.

    I fully intend to replace the Michelins on my F350 with a new set of Michelins when the time comes.

    One of the reasons i chose my F350 was because it had Michelin tires on it from the factory. I really like the ride of our truck and I attribute 80% of it to the Michelin tires.

    Michelin Defenders. My BIL is a farmer/veterinarian in New Mexico in addition to being an RVers. He won't use anything except the Michelin Defender LTs - he says they're the only thing he can get decent miles out of. That's what I'm running on our truck, too.

    Replaced mine last year. Went with the Michelin LTX A/T-2. Haven't put a lot of miles on them but so far they are doing fine.

    I went with Bridgestone Duravis all terrain. They are commercial tires and have proven themselves to be darn tough, holding up well and perform well in all conditions. Will definitely replace them with another set when the time comes.

    Thanks to all that responded, I appreciate the input. After even more research and reading reviews, I have decided to go with the Cooper Discoverer AT3-LT tires. There were just too many reviews about the Michelin tires that I didn't like and wasn't willing to take a chance on....especially spending that much money. In fact, the Cooper AT3-LTs were just a bit more money than the Michelins would have been.....so I didn't base my decision on $$ alone. Anyway, they will be in the Tire Discount store by the end of the day today, or first thing tomorrow, so the "Beast" will have new shoes by the end of the day Tuesday. Thanks again to all that responded.
