When it’s time to find new tires for your truck, the number of choices can make it feel a bit overwhelming. Should you just replace them with the same tires you’ve been using, or is there a tire that’s better suited to what you use your truck for in Irving, Texas? Below are some recommended tires for Ford F150 trucks.


The first thing to do when shopping for tires for any vehicle is to narrow down your choices. You need to not only decide what your budget is but what category of tire you should purchase. Luckily, with the mild winters in Irving, Texas, you probably don’t need to worry about severe winter service tires, but that doesn’t mean you should necessarily avoid all tires that are rated for winter weather use. In fact, there are dozens of all-weather/all-season and all-terrain tires that for F150 trucks that might be exactly what you need, whether you plan on a trip to the snow or not.


The two basic categories of recommended tires for Ford F150 trucks are all-season/touring tires and all-terrain tires. While there may be some all-season tires that can handle light off-road use and some all-terrain tires that have good road manners for highway driving, each one will have compromises. So, before even beginning to shop, decide if your priorities are for highway driving or all-terrain use.


After you’ve decided on the best tire category for your F150 truck, be sure to keep an eye on the speed rating for the tires. While the full list of tire-speed ratings is much longer, the ratings below are where most truck and SUV tires will fall:

Also, depending on what sort of work duty you put your F150 truck through in Irving, TX, you’ll also want to make sure you get an appropriate load range. The bulk of truck and SUV tires you’ll find will be passenger tires with Standard (S), Light Load (LL), or Extra Load (XL) ratings—although many passenger truck and SUV tires won’t have load range listed at all. Light truck tires have a different set of load range alphabetic identifiers ranging from B through F and are more in line with ply ratings that aren’t necessarily as relevant as they once were. If you need help deciding whether passenger or light truck tires are best for your F150, don’t hesitate to contact us.


What is the best tire for a truck?

As mentioned above, truck tires are available in a few different categories, so what’s best for you might not be best for another truck owner in Irving who uses their truck for different purposes. 


Many truck owners will simply look up to see what the OE (original equipment) tires were that came on their F150 and then purchase those. While they’d no doubt be a fine choice, they might not be the best. The fact is, many, but not all, OE tires are a compromise and are simply used from the factory because of bulk pricing. That’s not to say they aren’t good tires, because they ofter are, but you can probably get better mileage, more ride comfort, or improved performance. Again, it all depends on how you use your F150 and where you drive it.


Touring/All-Season

The touring and all-season category of tires is what most F150 owners in Irving will likely gravitate to, as they’re simply the best option for general road use. Michelin LTX tires are often used as the OE tire, and they’re a good all-season, general-use tire that offers a good mileage warranty (50-70K miles).


Other great options include the BFGoodrich Advantage, Continental TerrainContact H/T, Goodyear Wrangler Fortitude, and Yokohama Geolander. Of course, for those wanting to save a few dollars, there are also several that are affordable without skimping on the features. These include offerings from Lemans, Sailun, Ironman, and Nexen. And if you’re looking for something that falls in the middle from a price-range standpoint, you can’t go wrong with Cooper, General, Toyo, Uniroyal, or any number of other choices.


All-Terrain

If you do more off-road driving than on-road, or if your weekend adventures are more of a priority than driving from point A to point B, then all-terrain tires are what you want for your F150. Plus, some people just prefer the more aggressive look, and there’s the added bonus that most all-terrain tires will work well if you ever do encounter snow or mud.


Premium all-terrain tires that do just about everything well include Bridgestone Dueler A/T, BFGoodrich All-Terrain, Continental TerrainContact A/T, Goodyear Wrangler, Mickey Thompson, and Yokohama Geolander A/T. BFGoodrich and Goodyear are often the most popular, but you can’t go wrong with any of these top-tier choices.


As with highway-use tires, you can still save money and get good performance with more affordable all-terrain tires. Ironman and Nexen deliver some great economical offerings, and Uniroyal, Falken, Cooper, Hankook, General, and Nitto have some great mid-grade options that don’t skimp on their off-road abilities.


How long do tires last on an F150?

How many miles you can get out of a set of tires on your F150 completely depends on how and where you drive. If you drive a modified F150 or just enjoy hard acceleration and doing burnouts or donuts, your tires obviously won’t last as long. Tire-mileage warranties can range from 45,000 up to about 80,000 depending on the tire and manufacturer, but with normal use, you should be able to expect tens of thousands of miles from most of the options listed above.
