Looking to replace tires on a 2011 GMC 2500. Has the Firestone Transforce HT tires it left the factory with, size 245/75/R17. Plan is to stick with this size of tire. Looking for suggestions and opinions on a good all-terrain tire. Something that will last, quiet on the road yet does well in the dirt, snow and mud.

I always put BF Goodrich radial ta's on mine. Expensive but worth it and made in America.

Copper AT3's.

Bought cheap($800) from Orschlens unmounted. 265/75-17 for Ford F150.

Been on for about a year or roughly 15,000 miles. Rotated once. Quiet on the road, but plenty of tread pattern for dirt/mud/snow.

Zero complaints. Will buy them again when they wear out.

Had BFG A/Ts on my old Toyota. Could NOT wear them out. Little pricey though.

I've always had good luck with the Firestone Trans Force tires. I feel that they are lot better than some of the other tires that are out there.

I put the Firestone transforce AT on my f250, I'm happy with them, my brother put cooper tires on his f250, he's also happy with those.

All we run is the transforce firestones on all our company trucks. They are a great high millage all around tire. We are in the mud and we plow a lot of snow.Jim

I agree on the Cooper AT 3,s or even the AT,s which are a little less cost. Quiet ,great ride , excellent grip and wear and made here in USA (so far)

I just put some General Grabber AT2 s on my pickup, only been on a couple thousand miles of below zero driving so not much of a test, but deep tread, quiet on the highway. Happy so far.

I've had Grabber AT2's on my F250 for a couple years. I too am happy with them, and for the same reasons.

Had General Grabber AT2s on the last truck, I liked the tires but wasn"t sure how they would be for a daily driver. I"ll give them another look.

I agree with you, bf Goodrich all terrain TA, or Mickey Thompson mtz, but the Mickey Thompson tires are very spendy.

I'll second the Michelin motion. Tried lots of brands, nothing in particular. Put a set of Michelins on, just a 1/2 ton Silverado, but made that wore out truck drive better than when it was new! One other benefit, they've been on 18 months now, only had to add air one time!

Bought them from Tire Rack, no tax, no disposal fee.
