Whatever came on it from Ford.. I think they're Generals... I'm approaching 30K and will soon be replacing them with MICHELIN Defender LTX M/S

Years ago when Cooper was made in Findlay Ohio they were a very dependable tire, with a good price point. Myself and a lot of friends used them on our DRW TV's. Not sure of the current status of the Cooper line of truck tires. Back then Cooper made a much better truck tire than Passenger tire. Put a set on the Mark 8 and traded them off after a couple of months.

My current TV has Mastercraft Courser LTR tires on it. Yep, made by Cooper, after 8,000 miles they are preforming well.

Michelin's new from Ford got about 65-70K on the first set and it looks like the second set will do just as well.

The Bridgestone Duelers that came from the factory, on our F150, lasted just over 30K miles and I replaced them with the Michelin Defender LTx.

My cousin runs them on his truck and gets over 100K miles out of them, with a lot of highway driving.

I have put 12K miles on them, so far and they still look new and have tons of tread depth.

I needed all terrain vs all season and have found these to be a very good tire without affecting noise or fuel mileage compared to Michelins or Bridgestones.

Brother in law uses these tires on his fleet of trucks for his lawn and landscape company. Like him, I a very stingent when it comes to balancing, air pressure and aligments, so i expect many miles off of these tires..current ones have about 15,000 miles on them and they look reallly good. Mostly Highway miles too..

My 2011 F250 4x4 came with Continental tires on it and I wasn't really thrilled with that, but left them on there anyway. I ended up getting right at 50K miles on them, although at the time, I really wasn't towing very heavy. I replace them with a set of Nitto Grappler G2's. They are really quiet for a semi aggressive tread, but not enough miles on them to see how long they might last.

I gone through 2 sets of Michelin LTX A/T2 tires. Nearly 70K from each set. Just scheduled appointment for 4 more. Great off road performance for a quiet highway tire.

My truck came with Firestone TransForce AT tires. It was almost a deal breaker for me due to the terrible experiences I've had with Firestone's in the past. The dealer convinced me that Firestone truck tires had changed. Well....

I'm right at 50k on these tires and they have performed WAY beyond my expectations. I ruined one by hitting an unseen pothole and putting a cut in the side and I now have a roofing nail in the side of one from driving down an alley where everyone was having their roofs replaced...all on me.

I'm seriously thinking about going back with the TransForce. I always replace tires by 50k and these tires probably have 20k left on them. They drive great and are super quiet. I couldn't ask any more of a tire. If I don't get them I will go with Michelins - probably the Defender LTX M/S.

I have had the A/T3 on my truck just shy of 30,000 miles and I have been really happy with them. They are a vast improvement over the Goodyear Wranglers that came on the truck from the factory. At my last tire rotation I still had 11/32" of tread depth all the way around!
