FWIW, I installed sailuns on my 2016 f350 drw about 18 months ago & they still look like new after 15k miles. The truck rode much smoother, no winter issues & we go snowmobiling up north. a week after the tires I installed billstien shocks, didn't realize how bad the stock shocks were & they only had 35k on them. Next tire change I will change the shocks at the same time, it made a huge difference. I think one of the biggest improvements with the sailuns is how smooth & quiet they are at speed, we travel from Li to the catskills alot & at 80 mph on the thruway the tires really seem to shine.

There are Firestone Transforce A/Ts and Firestone Transforce A/T2s.

The A/T2s have better tread depth, better traction and longer life.

The OEMs use the A/Ts. The A/T2s would be an upgrade from the OEM tire. I have found them to be the best on-road and off-road tire.

General HTS60's are going on my truck this morning.


If you are looking for LT275/70-18 tires right now there seems to be a shortage of many versions. I had our Escape in for service at Ford and about the only tires available were A/Ts - Firestone and a couple off brands. Same thing with Tire Rack though they did have the 4 Generals

Finally got to put a few miles on these new General tires today. Very smooth ride.That ride is not anywhere near as harsh as the Michelins they replace. Now, just hope they wear as well and as good in wet weather.

I guess that explains why most complain about the OE Transforce being a terrible wearing tire , myself included , I got 28K out of them.

I put on Cooper tires and coming home the front right lost all its tread at 60 mph. The truck, sensing a collision , shut down the fuel , and shut off the ignition. Steering and braking were greatly reduced but I did finally stop safely. The tire was still inflated. I replaced all tires in Blyth, Ca, and brought the defective tire home. There were 24k miles on the tires. I put in a claim for $ 7000.00 CDN to Cooper tire. After 4 mos. of stalling and excuses I got my cheque. Thanks to God that it ended safely. We were in the Mexican mountains just a few hours before.

I have heard of problems with the Cooper Discoverer AT, what kind did you have?
