I love Michelin, but they're pretty expensive. My tire guy hooked me up with Hercules brand recently. They have a great wararnty. As he told me, if one is damaged/unrepairable, it's replaced at full value. That is, I get a new tire even if the damaged one is less than half tread left, and I pay nothing. I've had Goodyears that I ended up paying a depreciated amount. Never had to replace a Michelin due to damage, so I can't speak for them. So far, at aprox 2000 miles, I'm liking the Hercules.

I am usually a Michelin man for my street vehicles "that matter" because they are the best for sure. But BFG Commercial T/A seemed like a good alternative to Michelin to try, and I did on my dually a few years ago and was happy with them. BFG was part of, or owned by, Michelin at that time, so I said what the heck...

Michelin is my favorite but I agree the price is hard to swallow. If that were my truck, I'd look at the Firestone Transforce or Hankook Dynapro.

Has anyone tried the General Grabber HTS 60 in load E ?? It’s a Highway / All Season tire that is very moderately priced and placed #5 out of 39 comparable tires on Tire Rack tests.

Reading the Tire Rack reviews from truck owners it looks like a 50 – 60k mile tire.

I did purchase one of these General Grabber HTS 60 as a replacement of the 9 yr old original spare tire on my truck because of the low price.

I have Michelin Defender LTX M/S load E with 62k on them now with over half of that towing and look like they’ll go to 100k on a 4wd 1500.

No matter the mileage, at 7 yrs of age I’m looking at replacing and not running less than 4/32 of thread.

I bought Cooper Discoverers for my Dodge last Spring. The Michelin's dry-rotted before they wore out. Truck is an '02, and still had the original LTX M/S2's on it (36k miles). I just couldn't justify the cost to put them back on.
