Tires for 2008 F150

Recommended Posts

I'm in the market for new tires for my F150. Currently have BF Rugged Trail T/A and the size is P275/65R18. I'm looking for any opinions on a tire that has performed well on the same/similar vehicle. I'm finding that most tires this size run around $200 per tire. I'd really like to keep the purchase under $800 if possible. I've looked at buying online and it doesn't seem that prices are much better.

Also, I was thinking about buying three new BF Rugged Trail tires and using the spare for a fourth. I'd then take one of the tires I currently run and use that as a spare. Any opinions if this would be a viable option? Would like to save a couple hundred bucks if possible.

And for a set of Michelins no less!!! Great price.

The main cause for the high price of tires on your truck is the 18" wheels. It is somewhat of an odd size that OEMS can't seem to stay away from. A set of tires for 20" rims would be cheaper because they have become more common.

Lots of great deals out there if you've got time to look. That price from airjer is an excellent deal on a great tire.

OEM exact size match is not necessary. Sometimes they use odd sizes. Shop around and you can find different sizes that are nearly the same for less money.

I know when i was shopping tires for my F350 a set of 20's would've made my life a whole lot easier and cheaper.

I just put new tires on my truck on Friday. I have an '09 Silverado 1500 and I put on 275/70/18 Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor Pro Grade's. AWESOME tire, had them on my old truck and loved them. I checked around a couple places locally-$345-355 a tire. Ended up going thru the dealership where I bought the truck. They gave me one free tire, matched the cheapest price I could find online- $273 a tire, AND gave me a $100 GM rebate, plus Goodyear has a $80 rebate on the Silent Armors until the end of the month. So total cost was $639 for the tires. I was extremely pleased with the deal.
