Your favorite tires?

Ha well today I managed to get my f150 stuck in mud while trying to pull my dads friends car out of the mud behind our shop...Sooo I'd say its time for new tires. I knew I needed them in the near future but getting stuck in mud isn't fun...I have to get my dad to pull my ford out with his jeep :(

SO first time buying tires for my truck, any recommendations?

Looking at these P275/65R18

Pepboys website is down, I called and he said he has tires for me but I couldn't understand what he was calling them or look them up on their website! NTB doesn't have tires I'm interested in so I'm probably going to go to firestone. Firestone does do pricematching so if I can find those tires cheaper somewhere else they will pricematch.

But, what tires do you guys like/recommend? I can bring in tires myself and they will mount and balance them for like $85 bucks, so that's not bad and it opens my options up some.

I do tow a trailer, I am in rain a lot, it does get muddy here a lot, not much snow and I drive on the hwy some.

I like tire rack for research even if you don't buy from them. I used to like Uniroyal as a decent wearing tire at a reasonable cost. That ended when the belts busted in a set of four and they refused to warranty them. Uniroyal is part of Michelin as is BF Goodrich so those brands are out for me. They don't realize that I wont be buying any more Michelin tractor tires again. I don't think you can go wrong with Bridgestone/Firestone.

The tire you mentioned is not a mud tire-it's a street designed tire, not really good for mud.

I don't specifically need a mud tire, I don't really go off roading, any tires you'd suggest though?

My DH (who is very good about tires) suggests an all terrain tire, Toyo is an excellent brand. We do a lot of towing & off-roading, & heavy hauling.

It's good all-around, not just for mud. Tires can be such a pain, but if you get good ones, you'll have them for a few years.

I hate all terrain tires, but in your case that's what you'll want. My favorite all terrain tire is the mickey thompson atz. The toyo all terrains, like mentioned above are also great tires. Those are the only two all terrains I would consider putting on my truck. I kinda like the firestone mud tires, but not a fan of their all terrains. That's just my preference tho, a lot of people have great luck with them
