2005 F150 Tires
So our pickup at work is due for new tires. The truck is a 2004 or 2005 F150 extended cab 2wd rig. The tires that were on the rig were BFG Radial Long Trail A/T's. I am not sure we even got 20k out of them. I don't want them again. My main concern is longevity of the tires. I don't care even the slightest in ride. We do load a couple thousand pounds from time to time in the back but usually only drive a couple miles like that. Every once in a while we will throw about the same and make a trip from as far as Norcal to Seattle but that might be once a year if that. The rig does some light towing. As of right now the only thing we would tow is a 16' arima fishing boat that probably weighs about 2k for boat, motor, trailer and gear.

What tires are other's running on their pickups? Any suggestions?

I've got 33" Nitto Terra Grapplers on my 2005 F150. I love them so far but I only have about 3K miles on them too. Many of my friends recommended them to me based on their positive experience though.

I just went with the new Conti Cross Contact LX20 for our 1500 Chevy. More a H/T tire than a A/T. Rated for 70,000 miles, but I'll be happy with 50,000

I have about 40k on my Toyo Open Country M/T (33's) on my Tahoe. Tread is about halfway through. Hoping to get another 20k+ out of them. The key for me is to be anal about rotating and balancing them!

I ran Nitto Grapplers (Load Range D) on my 2001 4x4 F-150 and got 60,000 plus out of them-then sold the truck-they could still be on there. I will be adding them to my new 2011 F-150 as soon as the Goodyears wear out which looks to be not much mroe then 40k if I am lucky.

I have the BFG All Terrains which are one of the most common and popular tires. They are great on wear and are still a snow rated tire.

Upgrade to the 20"s. I got 64k out of the stock Pirelli's on my '07. Then switched to Hankook's which also got the job done. Only had 12k on them when I sold it.

Hate, will do.

Nitto terra grapplers are great on 1/2 ton trucks, 3/4 & 1 tons they will wear fast. I run 37" toyo m/t's on my dodge and they are the best riding mt I've ran so far.

Mickey Thompson's Baja Atz Radial Plus i haven't put that many miles on them but they look like they will last a long time- there really expensive though
Also heard the BF all Terrian K/O's are pretty good they have about 16-17 depth too- i think you can buy these at costco
Tread Depth are 16.5-17 on the mickeys compared to 12 on the long trail
