    I'm looking to buy some new tires for my 06 Taco Double Cab 4x4. I seldom if ever get off road. I'm in the process of wearing out my second set of BF Goodrich Rugged Trail T/A. First set was okay, this set has been horrible. I've kept them rotated as suggested by the tire dealer, kept pressures to correct level. Problem is my tires have about 22,000 miles on them and the look like the have 60,000. I live in a pretty hilly area and while the roads are paved, the pavement is very rough. I have to do a lot of starting, stopping, turning on go up some pretty big inclines. Could the all that add up to such treadware? Treadware is even and I've made no alterations to tires/wheels or suspension. Any suggestion on a different brand or anything else I may try?

    Michelin LTX M/S. Mine have been really good to me. I've only had uneven wear cause I forgot to change the pressure in my rear tires after taking the concrete slabs out of the back.
    Excellent on dry pavement, phenomenal in the rain, not too bad on snow and ice. Long life and tons of siping.

    I had Michelins on my 99 F-150 and loved them. That's what I should have gotten when I rbought new tires last year. I'll probably go back w/ Michelin LTX. I know they are more expensive, but they last forever. I'm out on BF Goodrich and Goodyear both.

    Thanks for the advice
