    I replaced the stock Pirelli's with the Michelin LTX's at 49K miles. Much improved ride, noise, and wet grip improvement, even compared to when the Pirelli's were new.

    Bought my truck with 56,000 miles or so and brand new BFG KO2’s. Truck now has 126,000 on it and these tires will make it through the year before needing replaced. I’m expecting 85,000 miles or so out of them. [​IMG]

    I got less than 35K out of the Pirelli Scorpions that were put on by the dealer when I bought my truck (rated for 65K I believe). I've got about 25K on the Michelin LTXs that replaced them and they're nowhere near end of life.

    Noticed your signature photo. How did your Expedition do at Silver Lake? Also curious how you attached your flag. I visit friends in Grand Rapids periodically, and would enjoy taking my Expedition to Silver Lake. Last time I was there with my Toyota Tacoma and had lots of fun.

    It did good, I aired down to about 10psi and I could go about anywhere without beating on it. It is the gear/kid hauler up there, we have quads as well so it does sit for part of the day. I will say this, when it gets stuck, she is stuck! I just need to give it more skinny pedal!

    67K is impressive for Hancooks! My 2016 came with Hancook Dynapro HT's and at 43k miles the rears depth are 3/32" and fronts are 4/32", rotated at every 5k oil change. I've found the rears to slip easily from start when I'm making a turn and the fronts got progressively noisy when making slow turns. I generally drive conservatively.

    I'm considering replacing them with Michelin Defender LTX M/S

    Got 4 new WRANGLER FORTITUDE HT - SIZE: 275/65R18 from TireRack. Went with the blackwalls. They have a good price at $183.99 per tire plus a Goodyear mail in rebate (when you buy 4) for $60! I picked them up from their DE location to save another $64 bucks! So for a set of 4, $620 (before installation). Pretty psyched.

    That's great. For others, there are many Wrangler tires, the Fortitude HT are the ones that are lasting for a long time. Even though the fine print says 65,000 is not for LT sizes, the reviews and my experience with them is they do last for many miles.

    I'll be on the look out for a deal because I might have to change them out before winter. I'll be well over 65,000 miles by then. I'm still pleased & surprised that Ford put on OEM tires that last this long.

    I've had goodyear tires in the the past but none have lasted this long.
