Michelin's all-season is about one of the best out there. I think it's the LTX? maybe some variation of letters but they're a very nice tire.

Cooper Discovery HT is a nice tire also. Great all-season style tire and hold their own in the winter also. You won't break any trails with them but it doesn't sound like you'll be doing that anyways.

My neighbor had those a few years ago. When I bought my truck, it needed tires and so did his. We both went to Firestone and put those on our trucks (mine 06 TRD Sport, his 04 TRD) I have ~27k on them and they are bald, he has ~22k on them and his are bald too. Not my first pair of Yokohamas that have failed to meet mileage, but defineatly my last. If you can swing it, Michelin is the way to go. Otherwise look at Hankook, Dunlop, or Firestone. IMHO

Anything but Bridgestone/Firestone. I have had TERRIBLE luck with them, and I will never waste my hard earned money on those brands again.


Being from NJ, you might want something that is capable in the snow too.

The BFG All Terrains get my vote. Link.

I just purchased a set of Michelin Latitude's. They are supposed to be the most quiet, smoothest rolling, highest mileage tire they offer. It's actually a passanger car tire but works great on my truck. I've had them for about two months and really like them. They are definetly quiter that the original Dunflops and ride better to boot.

I would stay away from the HT's, the LTX is a nice tire as mentioned above. I didn't have any luck with HT's

BF Goodrich T/A K/O All terrain have been the best tire I have ever used. I'm on my 2nd set and the first set I got over 55 thousand miles. They were not bald but close to it when I changed them. But I use 265/75/16.

Guys, OP was asking for an "All Season" tire not an "All Terrain" tire. It's a truck that stays on pavement and sees snow sometimes.

+1
always people praising their current tires lol

given the size and needs you're looking for i'd seriously choose from one of these in no particular order

1). Continental Crosscontact LX (low rolling resistance, wear rating of 680) $110 each on tirerack

2). Michelin LTX MS2 (wear rating of 720) $145 each tirerack (much better traction than their Latitude line)

3). Yokohama Geolander HTS (wear rating of 500) $96 each tirerack

just keep in mind while they may be rated really high by people, traction is not a huge quality of all seasons/ht, but so are AT tires, it's all relative, they won't hug/grip the road like a summer performance tire but will last a lot longer than one ;p

Many "all season" tire's are HORRIBLE in the snow, dangerous, even.

Just keep that in mind.

You won't beat the Michelin LTX MS2 for a highway tire. We just bought my wife a 2007 Tahoe LTZ with a brand new set of 20" Michelin MS2s on it and they are as smooth as glass on the highway and are super quiet. They soak up little ripples and bumps in the road like they aren't even there and they are great in the rain. The only downside to me is that they don't look agressive enough for the Tacoma. I'm running LTX AT2 on my Taco and they ride really well, but make a little noise between 40-60 mph.

my wife went to costco "for me" and had a set of michelin all seasons installed. i think they are the LTX. they look like a tire made for some soccer mom's denali. very unaggressive. i was bummed, but my wife was pretty cool taking the intiative to go out and buy me some new tires. i was leaning towards more of an all terrain..the hankooks actually.

anyways, i get almost 23mpg on the highway. and i have done some amazingly crazy BS with my truck in the wilderness. no mud puddles, but some serious rocks climbs during hunting trips. zero issues. in the rain they kick ass..no snow yet, but soon. this weekend, i have to go to a hog farm to help butcher 7 animals. it is down a nasty muddy road. road is a loose term. i will bring a tow strap and follow my rancher lady friend that is rocking a 4x4 diesel rig.

hate to say it, but my michelin soccer mom tires dont suck.

Just because the BFG A/T tire isn't classified as an "all season" tire doesn't mean it wouldn't perform well on pavement and snow. I've had them on multiple trucks over the years. The trucks were used mainly on pavement and many ski trips on ice and snow covered roads. Some of the sets have lasted 70,000 miles...
