Tires for Pickup Truck
Pickups have a lot of purposes. Some pickup owners are interested in their towing and load-hauling abilities. Some are more interested in using their trucks for fun. Instead of breaking our tire recommendations into price categories, we’re going to provide recommendations on tires for three of the most common ways people use their trucks.
We’ll look at tires for work, for commuting, and for play:
- For Work: Hankook DynaPro HT – The DynaPro HT is a highly rated tire with an E load range, meaning that they have 10 plies of radial cords inside, and can be inflated up to 80 psi for heavy loads. They’re also less expensive than some of the comparable brands.
- For Commuting: Sumitomo Encounter HT – The Encounter HT is a highway-oriented truck tire that should provide years of service. In every category, this tire shines against the competition.
- For Play: BF Goodrich Mud Terrain KM3 – For bashing around off-road, there aren’t many tires that are better than the KM3. With a blocky tread design, outstanding sidewall strength, and surprisingly low noise on the road, these are the tires that will get you there and back.
