Default What Are Quality Road Tire Makes?

I went to Big-O tires in September of '09 and they sold me
(4) 215/70R/14 96T Tempest Touring SR/TR tires. 24,200 miles later they're shot. Getting ready to take a vacation to Texas and I need new tires. I know we put a lot of miles on this truck between the wife and I but none of it is off-road. Don't know if it makes any difference but we just got a small 16' fishing boat and trailer to haul several times a month. What are some of the better lasting tires you guys have had on your truck? I don't have 4-wheel drive, I do have the 4.0L engine. What else do you need to know?

Thanks!

~David

I'm finding 14" tires difficult to find in any quality makes at all.

Can you find 15 inch rims to fit your truck. Right now there are lots of 15 inch choices and they are much cheaper than 16's. I bought a used set of Ford rims in 15 inch for my winter tires for $60.00 for the set. Dave

Get a $50 set of 15's so tires are cheaper/easier to find.

I got 70,000mi+ out of my last 3 sets of BFG A/T's with only street use
40,000 on a set on 33's with 1/2 its miles offhighway
