My truck came with Michelin LTX AT2s which were only ok traction wise and had chunks of rubber coming off when driving on gravel roads. Michelin's current marketing says the AT2s resist chunking, but that was not my experience.

I tow a 5th wheel and when it came time to replace the Michelins at 25,000 miles, I found some brand new takeoff 18" wheels with the Wrangler Adventures for less than the price of tires for my 20" wheels. They were 1" smaller in diameter as well which got the 5th wheel as close to level while towing as I'm going to get it. Their wet and dry traction was better than the Michelins and they didn't chunk on gravel roads. When it came to replace them at 60,000 miles on the truck, I went with a Toyo highway tread tire thinking I'd get better fuel economy and treadlife. I don't really need an all terrain tire and I paid $160 apiece for them. I hate them. It's like driving on marshmallows. Truck was rock solid towing my 5th wheel until the Toyos. I thought they might get better, but they didn't. I have 95,000 miles on the truck and could get another 10,000 miles out of the Toyos, but I'm done. My fuel economy didn't improve one bit either.

All of that ^^^ to answer your simple question. Of the three set of tires I've had on my truck so far, the Goodyear Wrangler Adveturers have been the best tire in every respect except tread life. After the Toyo fiasco, I don't want to risk trying a 4th tire. At $175 each, they were significantly less than any other comparable tires.

I've never driven my truck in though.

"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
