Best All-Season Tire for Ram 3500

In the all-season category our two top picks are both from Michelin. The Defender LTX is more expensive but does come with a 50,000 mile warranty. Compared to other all-seasons in its class it holds up to colder and mild winter weather much better and offers better grip when the temperature drops.

As for the Agilis CrossClimate, it’s unique in that it’s actually certified for true winter use, so it takes winter capability to the next level. At the same time, its ultra-wide connected tread ribs are designed to better withstand high torque motors and heavy payloads.

Best All-Terrain Tire for Ram 3500

There really is no shortage of all-terrain options for the Ram 3500 and there’s plenty of variety as well. The Michelin LTX AT2 delivers the best balance between on-road performance and off-road grip. It’s by no means an extreme off-road tire, but it’s certainly capable and its on-road ride quality and driving dynamics are exceptional. Plus it comes wth a 60,000 mile warranty.

The Continental Terrain Contact is actually extremely similar.

For those who are more concerned with maximum off-road grip, you can’t beat the Bridgestone All Terrain TA KO2 DT. Plus, in the DT specific version it takes the tire’s famous durability to new heights with a tread that’s built to withstand the extra abuse of a a larger truck and powerful motor.

We’ve listed the Cooper Discoverer ATP II further down the list here, but it actually might be our favorite. Its off-road grip is better than our top picks, and it suffers slightly on-road as a result, but only minimally. And it costs significantly less. In fact, in some cases you’ll pay 25% less for this tire and it comes with the same, impressive, 60,000 mile warranty.

Switching back to tires that really excel off-road, the Goodyear Wrangler UltraTerrain AT is extremely close to the BFGs in performance.

Finally there’s the Firestone Transforce AT, which is one of the factory options for the Ram 3500. It’s more on-road focused as well with better performance on-road in the wet than most. Off-road capability isn’t great, but the price is.

Cheapest Winter Tire for Ram 3500

There are probably cheaper snow tires out there. In fact, we know there are. But these are the cheapest good winter tires. While we’d like everyone buying Blizzaks, we also appreciate just how expensive they are and insist that any winter tire is better than no winter tire. That said, if you want vastly improved winter grip and safety, the Cooper Discoverer Snow Claw is a solid bet.
