Which Tires Are Best For My Truck?

Which Tires Are Best For My Truck?

Postby GM-Man [OP] » Oct 21 2013, 2:41am

I Have a 2000 GMC Sierra Ext Cab. 2WD Pick-up Truck. Looking for a quiet, Long lasting, smooth riding tire that is a good fit for a 2wd Truck. They no longer make my michelin LTX M/S Tires anymore :( Any Suggestions??

BF Goodrich Long-Trail T/A have always been very good for me. They ride nice and have always been a log lasting tire. I have had them on two different trucks and loved them on both.

I have also had good luck with the Firestone Destination LE . Another smooth riding long lasting tire.

M/S 2 is an even better version of what you are referring too. Only difference is that they are even better in bad weather (hard to beleive, but true). But, the sidewall is not as nice looking.

Still the best all-around tire made, IMO.

Those BFG long-trail have very hard rubber compound which to me gave a bad ride but might be the life line of the tire but all around I've been a fan of any BFG tire. I do agree with you on the Firestones tho.

If you look at the M/S2 at Michelin's website you will see that it is a "P" (passenger) tire. The sidewall rating is 2183 lbs (from memory so I might be off a few lbs) which has to be de-rated by10% when used on a light truck. (federal DOT guidelines say divide rated weight by 1.1) I think the lower rating is what is shown on Michelin's website.

If that tire met the load requirements of my truck, I would not hesitate to use it.
