Tires of Tow Truck

Any recommendations for tires for my tow vehicle? My 07 Avalanche had Goodyear tires that were in good shape, but before going to Alaska we decided to get new tires. They are B.F. Goodrich and the worst tires I've purchased in over 50 years of buying tires. They are much more worn at 30,000 mi. than the old ones were at 34,000. We are towing a 2012 Z-211RD.

Know of of few Rver's that use the Firestone Transforce LT tire and are very happy with them.

I put a set of Dueler A/T Revo 2 right before the holidays. (Firestone actually had a Black Friday Sale!)

Not yet towed, but will post my experience once I get my trailer on the road.

Good reviews on Tire Rack so we will see.

I use the Hankook AT's. They have worked flawlessly when pulling our rig.

I've had good luck with the Cooper Dicoverer AT3's. Had them on two vehicles. 50,000 mile warranty. Quiet and great wearing tire. I went with Cooper Discoverer ST Maxx this time around and very pleased so far.

Love my Michelins! Much better traction than O.E.M. Bridgestone tires, and warranty on them is better than most other brands.

Firestone Transforce LT tires on my truck. Tires are holding up great and also get good traction in the snow (important for me up here in WI).

Thats good to know. I supposedly "upgraded" to the Revo's that were quite a bit more per tire.

Next time, Transforce.

Can someone post the mileages they're getting out of their E rated tires. I was a bit concerned on the lack of tread warranty. My father-in-law is a a retired tire engineer and he told me the lack of warranty is probably because of the variables in use of these HD tires.

I run Cooper Discoverer H/T Plus on my 07 Avalanche. They have been great towing so far but thats been with my car trailer not my 290BH as I don't get that until Friday.

Even for a 20's I was surprised how well they did. I've had then on since July 2013, very quiet, great in the snow and even on a muddy job site.

I decided to use them as one of my friends has them on his Duramax towing his toy hauler.
