After putting new ones on might want to check frt end compents. Mine was eating frt tires up pretty fast. Replaced frt stuts, Ball joints. sway bar links and sway bar bushings also Aarm bushings, and stearing stabilizer. Had it 4 wheel laser aligned, now tires are lasting a lot longer. Surprising how fast frt end parts go bad on newer trucks. Did everything myself except alignment. Got all my parts off internet suppliers for under $200.

You'll be hard pressed to find a better tire for the same money as the Hankook Dynapro ATM.

I like the Hankook Dynapro ATM and MT. I've used them on a couple different trucks. For the money the 10 plies are hard to beat and hold up well on gravel and in the fields.

The 2014 F250 I bought this spring has the BFG KO2s and they seem to be wearing well. I haven't put that many miles on them yet, but time will tell. I too drive gravel every day.

Another vote for the Hankook DynaPro ATM's. I've had them on my last two trucks and have been very happy with them.

Since this is in the love it hate it section

Loved my Michelin LTX AT. Not a traction king but got 70k out of them

Hated the Firestone Transforce AT's that came standard on my Ram 3500

I've been running Hankooks since the turn of the century. Eek! And they will be my next tires I purchase also.

That's what I'm running on my truck and so far really like them. I do rotate my tires about every 10,000 miles due to be 4 x 4.

I have a set of Hankook Dynamics MT's on right now, since they are no longer made the Dynapro's will be on next. Good stuff!

I'm looking to replace my Bridgestone shelters at on my truck after 4 years and almost 70000 miles, will be putting the exact thing back on again! Happy with the performance and wear, just wish they made a 10 ply.

I'm not sure where you plan to purchase the tires from, but I've had really good luck with Tirerack. They will ship direct to the garage or dealer that you want to put on the tires. They run some pretty good deals during the year too.

Goodyear Duratrac. Just wore out my first set but I'll hit 80,000 on them before replacement and I'll be putting the same tire back on. They are pricey but they eat up anything I've thrown at them. Fantastic in snow which is my top priority with them.

For serious real deal off road tires and great traction my son swears by the Goodyear MTRs. I loved the Toyos M55. The stopped making the M85s or maybe it was M75s several years ago. They were tall and narrow and were great tires. I did buy a set of Toyo Open Country on my last pickup and they were doing well until my accident.

I have a set of the Goodyear MTRs on my hunting/logging pickup. Mine are 10 plys and really dig in deep snow and mud. The sidewalls have also been very strong under some pretty heavy loads of logs and cut wood.

If you can ignore the nerdy barbwire on the sidewall, and can get a good deal on them i would recommend these too.

I have ridden with my son in his work truck and the MTRs are hard to beat. He runs 10 ply and has them studded for traction on ice. When he has to chain up it's getting ugly. But he only gets 20000 out of a set. But the Wyoming rocks, sage brush and mud can destroy normal tires.
