Best Tire for Ford F350

Goodyear Wrangler All Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

Equipped on many F350s from the factory, it’s nearly impossible to think of a reason not to buy this tire. An impressive off-road tire it grips fantastically and it’s as durable as they come. To withstand brutal conditions under the heavy load of a big truck, it’s built with a Kevlar reinforced carcass, plus a more robust sidewall to resists cuts and slashes.

LT fitments come with the three-peak mountain snowflake logo on the sidewall, indicating they can operate in extreme winter conditions. Plus LT fitments also feature 30% more steel in their construction. This makes them more durable over the long-run off-road, and also means they can better withstand the hard work of towing and hauling.

In fact, Goodyear is so confident, they back the tire wth a 60,000 mile tread life warranty!

All this and they cost less than $200 per tire, significantly less than all rivals.

Michelin LTX AT2

Costing roughly 25% more than the Goodyears above, you’d have to find a pretty good deal to pick the Michelin LTX AT2 instead. Still, users rate these tire extremely highly. It offers the same 60,000 mile tread life warranty and similar off-road grip. The durability features aren’t as impressive, but it’s on-road manners are superior.

   

 

Best All-Season Tire for Ford F350

Michelin Agilis Cross Climate

The real highlight of this tire is its true all-season capability. Rather than being a three-season tire, it boasts the three-peak mountain snowflake logo on its sidewall indicating it’s certified for extreme winter use.

Some of the all-terrain tires on this list are also winter certified, however, this is an all-season tire and offers much lower noise levels from the tire, a more comfortable ride and better on-road driving dynamics.

The tread design is also built to hold up to a lot of starting and stopping under heavy loads and from a high-torque engine.

It’s an ideal tire for commercial vehicles where you need grip you can rely on, no matter what the weather is.

   

 

Best All-Terrain Tire for Ford F350

BFGoodrich All Terrain TA KO2

The best grip you’ll find, the BFGoodrich All Terrain TA KO2 with its unique curved tread blocks is impressive off-road on dirt, rocks or gravel. It also approaches mud-terrain levels of capability in particularly loose earth (or mud).

Durability is also a critical feature of this tire, with sidewalls that are 20 percent thicker to better protect against cuts and slashes.

Impressively it’s also certified for true winter use and boats the three-peak mountain snowflake logo as proof. Plus, it comes with a 50,000 mile tread life warranty.

Dry grip on the street is quite good thanks to that tread pattern that gives your truck a very stable contact point. If there’s any drawback, on-road performance in the wet is a bit underwhelming.

   

 

Cheapest Tire for Ford F350

General Grabber HTS 60

We should clarify up front that you will be able to find cheaper tires than the General Grabber HTS 60 out there. But most aren’t worth a second glance – or even a first glance for that matter.

This tire is capable and reliable with solid on-road performance and a little off-road grip too. The shoulder blocks are reinforced to help with traction and handling, while also preventing premature wear. We also like these for towing.

And they’ll last around 50,000 miles for a set, which is the average for a tire like this.

   

 

Cheapest Fire for Ford F350 (Alternative)

Corsa All Terrain

Undercutting the Pathfinder AT by a slim margin, the Corsa All Terrain is an incredibly similar tire, though just slightly less capable. Large inner tread blocks give decent on-road stability and capable off-road durability. Plenty of voice space and notches in the tread blocks give traction, while siping helps this tire on wet roads.

Regardless, wet road traction could be improved and a warranty of 40,000 miles means you’re probably better off spending a bit more on a better tire.

 

Best Winter Tire for Ford F350

General Grabber Arctic LT Studdable

Many of the tires on this list are winter capable, but in case you’re not running any of those and do need an alternate set of winter tires, we recommend the General Grabber Arctic LT Studdable.

One of the more affordable winter tires for the F350 it still delivers excellent winter grip, with extra deep sipes that grip the snow.

A center tread section makes this tire nice and stable and delivers impressive braking performance on ice or icy roads.

Plus, if you need maximum winter grip, this tire is studdable.
