    Question ? on Truck Tires

    I have a 2005 Silverado 4x4 Ext. Cab and would like to put BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A tires on it. The problem is that my truck has P265/70R 17 tires on it now but the All-Terrain T/A tires do not come in that size. However, the All-Terrain T/A tires are made in LT265/70R 17. Would the LT tires fit on my truck without a problem?

    Thanks,

    DIDS

    Yes they will fit no problemo

    The LT's I believe are a 10 ply tire, it will ride a little firmer then the P series, but should last much longer.
    The AT KO's have a severe weather rating which means they are great in the snow.
    I just ordered Dunlop Radial Rover RVXT's LT 245/75/16, half the price of AT's becasue they are on sale right now, and they also have the severe snow rating

    I've had the Long Trail T/A's for about 3 years or so on my wife's F150 4x4, and they've been great tires. They have about 45k on them and are still in great shape. Very good in snow too, and we get a lot in western NY!

    Yeah- you guys and Oswego County get dumped on more then we do- I think you usually avg about 200", right? That and the strip from Pulaski to Adams- I think it snows there about 9 months out of the year!!

    The BFG A/T KO's....IMO the best small truck tire out there...they wear like iron. They do make them in that size, the LT rating is what they use on the metric sizing...they are designated with an LT at many stores.

    Thats what I'm taking off my truck, the Long trails suck in the snow, get stuck on flat ground with an inch of slushy snow, won't go up an incline in the snow.
    Now if I had 4x4, i'd run them for another year, but to dangerouse with 30k on them, they are starting to loose their grip on dry roads, squeeling around curves and such

    The LT is actually Light truck, it is a 8, 10 or 12 ply for trucks that haul or carry heavier loads, the p series is for average loading with 4 - 6 ply, not as long wearing and not suitable for heavy loading. The KO's are available in either format, P metric or LT metric, it is not a store designation but the loading capability of the specific tire
    P = light duty
    LT = heavy duty

    But I agree with you the AT KO's are one of the best light truck tires out there, pricey though

    Mine are the best tires I've had in the snow. Had Goodyears (oem) and Michelin. Hated the Michelins- worse than OEM Goodyears, and that's pretty bad.

    According to the BFGoodrich site the KO's are only avaiable in LT metric. I use to have the KO's on my Ford Ranger when I had that. They were the best tires I ever had on a truck in the snow. Not to mention the occasional off-roading.

    Huh..I don't recall ever seeing the KO's in the lighter type....always been LT...but then I always focused on the larger sizes, perhaps the lighter P rating never made it up there. //shrug

    When considering the price....factor in that the BFG's tend to outlive just about all others. I drive my vehicles fast and hard..very hard. I'd probably go through 3x sets of regular tires within the same mileage as one set of the BFGs.

    If your looking to do some mudding and such, go with the BFG, but for all around use, your best bet is Firestone Transforce HT, or AT. You'll get good wear, a good ride, and they won't get dry rot cracks in the sidewalls like goodyears do. Very reasonable price as well.
