Trims: XL, XLT, Lariat, Limited, King Ranch
About: If you’re like a lot of F-150 owners, you might use yours to commute to your job, haul yard trimmings to the dump on the weekends, as well as using the bestselling pickup truck in America for any number of other recreational activities. Maybe you even take your F-150 off-road a few times a year! And we get it—when you’re not using your Ford F-150 for fun, we also know you’re popular when your friends (or acquaintances) are moving.
When it’s time for new F-150 tires, it might be time to ask yourself…
What are the right tires for my Ford F-150?
Use: 60% highway, 20% under load, 10% dirt trails
F-150 tires - our picks
Recommendation #1 - Bridgestone Dueler LTH
We can tell you what works for truck tires. These Bridgestones slot in right around the lower portion of the median price range for F-150 tires, and should be able to check pretty much every one of your boxes.
They’re a big name brand for a big name truck, and you’ll get a lot of miles out of them on your commute with their 70,000-mile warranty. When the chance for a little weekend 4x4 action does present itself, they should be able to handle most trails.
Recommendation #2 - Michelin Defender LTX M/S
One of our favorite sayings is: “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
That’s why we'd pick the same tires that came on your F-150 from the factory.
While they won’t be any kind of upgrade over what you’re used to (except for one of the best feelings in the world – driving on brand new rubber), you’ll also know what to expect.
And because the majority of your driving is for your commute, their comfortable, stable and familiar ride quality is a big part of the reason why Ford picked these as the OE tires for the F-150.
Recommendation #3 - Toyo Open Country A/T II
To contrast these other recommendations, it also seems like you’d rather be camping and off-roading instead of basically only using your F-150 as a commuter. That’s why as a third recommendation we'd pick These Toyo Open Country A/T II's.
They should be tolerable enough for your commute (they have a decent warranty) while expanding your off-roading capabilities quite a bit. Plus, they’ve got an aggressive tread pattern to make it look like you take your truck off road as much as we all know you want to!
