    Tires

    Anyone ever run the General HTS on their tow rigs?

    I don't need a real aggressive tread, as I only tow in warmer weather. Just looking for a decent tire with decent tread life. Currently running Cooper AT's, but didn't expect to tow with this vehicle, and killed the lighter compound in 20,000 miles or so.

        I had a set of Toyo M55s, they lasted forever and were extremely flat resistant.

          I hated my Toyo AT 2's, but I love my Toyo C/T's

            Nothing but the LTXs on our work trucks. F250s with goosenecks. Worth the coin.

              No.

              I really like my current Toyo AT2's.

              I had the Toyo HT's prior and they were great towing tires. I imagine the General's would be comparable. The HT's had deep tread but tightly spaced blocks so they never felt squirmy.

                Thanks guys! I'll check out those Toyos and the Michelins. I'd like to order up a set of wheels for this, and run towing tires in the summer, and then beat stock wheels in the winter.

                  I ran the Grabber HTS when I was hotshotting in a 3500 SRW. Decent enough ride and traction, and they wore better than the LTX/MS Michelins they replaced. I sold the truck and went to the oilfield when the tires only had about 45,000 miles on them, but they still had most of the tread left.
                  Mrs CSR said I was good, or something.

                    My m55s are about worn out at 35,000km. Very flat resistant though.

                    Thinking of trying the toyo RTs next.

                      I didn't even make it to 30k with my ltx's

                        No shit, the LTX on my DRW 2018 are looking thin for less than 20k miles on them.

                          About 35,000 miles on LTX M/Ts. Drag loaded 14k goosenecks pretty regular. This is typical for both trucks. F-250 CCLB 4x4 6.7PS.

                            I run these, cheap, good wear, good traction. On about 49K, look like they will go another 20k.

                              I’m stupid and got 35x12.5r17 toyo MT for my tow rig. They’re almost worn out and I’ve only put on about 12,000 miles. Yikes...

                              looking forward to switching changing my falken ATs on when I get the new wheels.
