I need tire advice.

I am about to purchase new tires for my 04 f250 4x4. I trailer some for work. I drive alot of gravel roads and need something that works in snow and ice. The last tires I had were 285/75/16 E rated BF All terrians. I like the looks and traction of these tires. The tires were well suited to everything I wanted to do with them. The only problem ids they wear way to quick. I have 22000 miles on them and they are worn rifght out. I need a tire that is comparable to these and lasts longer. Does anyone have any suggestions for what has worked for them?

Re: I need tire advice.

I bought some kumho's off of tirerack a while back and really like them. Great ride on the road and not too bad off road... most of my driving is on road... have 4x4 for when weather gets interesting.

Re: I need tire advice.

I have to disagree on the duelers. My uncle has a set and hates them, he can't go through wet grass in 2wd and the tire wear is horrible. He has about 25k-30k and they are slick. He does use the truck as a farm truck and it see lots of gravel roads though. Oh and the biggest downfall is that he drives a 2500 Chebby.

Re: I need tire advice.

I love my Nitto Terra Grapplers. Pretty quiet on the highway. I don't know about the snow/ice performance, but they seem to be wearing pretty well. I don't know how old they were when I bought the truck, they had to be pretty new. I've put about 23k on them so far and they still have lots of tread left.
