    I'll be buying new tires soon and would like to hear some reviews and recommendations.

    I'd especially like to hear what you guys think of Goodyear or coopers. I mainly do highway driving (480+ miles a week/25k+ per year), but I live a half mile out on a dirt road that doesn't always get plowed in the winter. We get a lot of rain where I live and the roads don't always drain that well. I've got coopers on now (265/75r18) and I have readylift spacers. New bds uca's and bilstein 5100 shocks are on the way.
    Thanks

    There are numerous threads addressing this question on this Forum so you may want to pick the low hanging fruit and read those.

    I'm with J - really like the Michelins. Great wet traction even in 2WD.

    X2 on the Michelin LTX MS2 Defenders ...... that tire came on my 95 F150 from the factory and they still make it! I run them on my work cutaway van also.... the factory Hankooks that came on the van started to break cords and lump because of carrying weight, changed to LTX and they’ve always been great traction and durable.Michelin did come out with a new tire called Agilis cross climate designed more for commercial vehicles that replaces the LTX in my vans tire size. I just put a set of them on the van..... they are supposed to have twice the nylon in the carcass for carrying weight. I hope they are as good as the LTX’s were because they were trouble free even with the weight.I’ll be replacing my factory Hankooks on my Expy with the LTX’s when it’s time.
