What Tire is Best for a Ford F250?
Best Tire for Ford F250
Michelin Agilis CrossClimate
We don’t often recommend tires without a milage guarantee, but we’ll make an exception here. The Michelin Agilis CrossClimate is a fantastic performing tire in all weather conditions, is durable and reasonably long lasting too. Extremely well-rated by owners, the structure of the tire itself is built to handle heavy loads, while the tread pattern is designed to handle the high torque loads of an HD truck.
The two center ribs provide solid highway feel and stability, while the long shoulder tread blocks give this tire grip and stability in the corners.
There’s plenty of siping on each tread block, allowing this tire to be certified for true winter use, meaning it wears the three peak mountain snowflake logo and you won’t have to worry about swapping tires in the winter months. Due to the high void ratio in the treads, this tire can also handle some light off-road work too.
As for tire life, while there is no guarantee, with proper maintenance and rotation you should be able to see 50,000 miles out of a set.
Best Highway Terrain Tire for Ford F250
Continental Terrain Contact HT
If you are looking for a milage guarantee on your tires and you plan to do plenty of highway driving, the Continental Terrain Contact HT might be the perfect tire.
With excellent braking performance in the dry and decent wet performance it’s an impressive handling tire and is both quiet and smooth on the highway. You can pack on the miles too with a 60,000 mile tread life warranty.
Pricing for these tires is pretty decent too, coming in under many of the others on this list.
As a highway terrain tire it’s designed for some light off-roading, but it really is more for on-road use.
Best All-Terrain Tire for Ford F250
BFGoodrich All Terrain TA KO2
Our favorite all-terrain tire is hands-down the best choice for the F250 for a number of reasons. For starters, if you need off-road grip, nothing works like the KO2. In addition, it’s extremely durable and holds up well to the extra demands of a heavy duty truck.
On-road performance is decent, though there are some compromises in terms of overall comfort and responsiveness. Still, we like that the tire now comes with a 50,000 mile tread life warranty.
Often these BFGs can be quite expensive, and while they’re never cheap, the price gap between them and the other all-terrain tires you could buy for the F250 isn’t significant here, making them an even smarter buy.
Best Budget Tire for Ford F250
While most of the all-terrain tires for the F250 cost around the same price, this tire is one exception. The Pathfinder AT costs roughly 25% less than rival tires and still makes a compelling case. It doest grip like the BFGs, but compared to the other available all-terrain tires the performance gap isn’t significant.
It has a great all-terrain look and comes with a 50,000 mile tread life warranty.
Cheapest Tire for Ford F250
Corsa All Terrain
If you need a set of new tires and just don’t want to spend any more than you have to, then the Corsa All Terrain is the best bet. These tires are certified for off-road use although they are significantly less capable than many rivals. The large tread blocks and lower amount of void space make them less able to grip off-road. On the flip side, this does help their overall on-road stability. The compromises on and off-road are rather significant here though and wet weather braking, in particular, is a weak point.
The tire does come with a 40,000 mile tread life warranty.
