Have an 02 F250 powerstroke. yeah, I got the 7.3 :)
It currently has 265/75/16 Pirelli Scorpion STR on it. rear tires are nearly bald. fronts are in great shape, as they look like they were replaced shortly before I bought the truck last spring.
This is my first decent size truck, and the only thing I do with it is tow my 24' enclosed trailer to and from the track. No need for all-terrains or anything, as the only off-road use it sees is 100ft of my gravel driveway.
Thus, I want something nice and quiet for the highway and will last me a while.
Should I stick with the Pirellis, or what else do you guys recommend?
I pretty much gave the same truck.,,, Except it's a 2001. IMHO, the best tire you can put on it is the Goodyear Silent Armour Pro-grade. Make sure you get the Pro-grade version as it's weight rating is very good.
You don't want under rated tires like I used to have and then tow an enclosed trailer like i did and blow a tire out because it was under rated.
Also, if you want larger tires, the 285/16 fits on the OEM wheel and looks really good on the truck.
