Best tires for Ford F150

There is no use denying that the Ford F-150 is among the most popular and prevalent pickup trucks these days. It is dependable, but you must take care of it in a proper way, so you need to get the best tires for Ford F150.

After all, we all know just how much pressure truck tires are under, especially when there is a heavy load. You do, however, need to understand that the F150 has many variations, so there are numerous choices. That is why we did the hard part for you and prepared this list.

A Buying Guide For F150 Tires

Touring And Highway Tire

Most of the time, the clear answer to this question is either touring or highway tires. They offer, after all, everything all pickup drivers want.

For instance, they are incredibly comfortable and quiet. Many people overlook this advantage, but it makes a world of difference, especially on longer highway rides.

They also offer extremely shorter braking distances for both wet and dry conditions. Both touring and highway tires resist excellently against hydroplaning due to their circumferential grooves.

Finally, they are much more cost-effective, usually lasting for 5 or 6 years at the shortest.

All-Terrain Tire

Sometimes, you will need to go off-road, and the touring and highway tires are never equipped for this kind of fight. The requirements are, at the end of the day, completely different. Your tire must be reliable to handle, make as little noise as possible, and has excellent traction in rugged terrain.

Our recommendation is the all-terrain tire, as this tire type offers all these and then some. For example, they have some of the longest mileage warranties, meaning you can expect longer service life.

Mud-Terrain

All-terrain tires can suffice in most off-roading conditions, but they are usually jacks of all trades, masters of none. For instance, most types of all-terrain struggle when facing heavy mud situations.

You need specialized tires to deal with this kind of thing, something like a mud-terrain. Mud terrains usually have huge shoulder grooves to prevent mud from sticking into the tire. As a result, traction can improve significantly.

They also have variable full-depth siping, ensuring no grip loss on wet surfaces.

Size

There are many types of trim in this generation of F150, so the number of variants is greater than you think. For example:

F150 XL and XLT use 17-inch wheels for their trims, so you need something like a 265/70R17 115T Goodyear Wrangler. As for the Lariat and King Ranch, their trims need 18-inch wheels, so the number of original equipment tires is higher at 3, all at the size 275/65R18 116T.

Tread Pattern

Different driving conditions require different tread patterns. Snowy roads do not provide a lot of grips, so you would want to increase traction with the grooves and cuts of winter tires. Things are easier in the summer, so the summer tires have more contact surfaces and shallower grooves.

All-season tires have all of the above characteristics to adapt to every season. As mentioned above, all-terrain and mud-terrain tires are for off-road driving because of their blocky designs.

Rubber Compound

Having similar purposes, the rubber compound varies in different types of tires. Summer tires are harder to run on dry, hot asphalt but will become brittle under 45 degrees Fahrenheit. The opposite applies to winter tires.

Speed Rating

You can know the speed limit of a tire by looking up the speed rating marking on it. The marking is a single letter that indicates the maximum speed your tires can safely perform.

Some of the usual ratings for F150 tires are:

  • Q: 99mph
  • R: 106 mph
  • S: 112 mph
  • T: 118 mph
  • H: 130 mph
  • V: 149 mph

Age

It goes without saying that most products are better when they are new. All things being equal, the tires for Ford F150 are the most recently manufactured ones. Old ones tend to be weaker and more brittle due to the leached-out petroleum ingredients.

Just like the original line of T/A KO, this tire focuses a lot on integrated durability and long wear times. Due to the manufacturer utilizing computer optimization while molding the compound, it has quite an interesting tread block pattern. This pattern is specifically good at all-terrain traction.

That’s not all. The compound that BFG utilizes is also 2x thicker than the T/A KO, making it a whole lot tougher. Added to this the twin steel belts and nylon reinforcement, and you get a very durable and strong tire. 

This strength is enhanced even further with the Tri-Grad construction of polyester cord sidewall ply. It also doesn’t just improve strength but also ensures a softer corner experience.

The most obvious weakness of this tire is that it is specifically built for F150 XL and XLT, so its usage is quite limited. You will need to check carefully before getting it.

Pros
  • Tread is tough and durable
  • Excellent traction on
  • Dry/wet/snow-covered roads
  • Off-road performance
Cons
  • Specifically built for F150 XL and XLT

The Michelin Defender LTX M/S has quite an interesting choice of incorporating both the LTX M/S2’s tread depth and design while retaining all the best traits of the Defender lineup. 

As a result, it’s capable of resisting most tough road conditions under heavier payloads, making it the perfect choice for highways.

Another incredible plus of this tire lies in the contact point between the road and the rubber. Thanks to Michelin’s Evertread tech, this tire can go through many road surfaces, be it wet, snow, or dry. That is also why Michelin offers a respectable mileage warranty of 70000 miles.

Despite the thick compound, even if you lean a lot in corners, this tire won’t squeal too much. You can, in turn, enjoy a more pleasant ride.

The only thing that we can complain about this tire is its rather expensive price point. Overall, though, you get exactly what you pay for, so we consider it worth every single penny.

Pros
  • All-season traction, including snow
  • Tough tread compound
  • Long tread life
  • Quite comfortable
Cons
  • Expensive
  • Not that good as winter tires

What’s the most important aspect of touring tires? Most people will either answer traction or responsiveness. Both of these things are what the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus excels at, making it the most suitable option for people looking for touring tires.

This tire also has a middling rev per mile number, ranging between 637 and 722, dependent on the size. This revolving number means that the speed performance is still top-notch without gaining too much resistance to coasting on lighter terrain.

We do want to note that it does not have the best performance on the ice braking front. You should refrain from using it if you live in colder climates.

Pros
  • Steering is responsive
  • Ride comfort
  • Strong and durable tire
  • 80K mile warranty
Cons
  • Weak at ice braking
  • Struggling with gravel roads
  • Weird aspect ratio

If it’s durability and strength, we doubt there is any option capable of competing with the Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure tire. After all, it has a new tread compound featuring a DuPont Kevlar layer. This layer improves its cut, tear, and chunk resistance significantly.

This durability is improved even more with the exclusive Durawall tech that only Goodyear has. If the Kevlar layer improves the contact surface, this tech increases the strength and integrity of the sidewalls.

Nevertheless, the more symmetrical and aggressive tread pattern, while especially good at gripping on snow and rain conditions, is very weak against mud.

Pros
  • Good dry and wet on-road traction
  • Off-road traction in light terrain
  • Comfortable ride for an AT tire
  • Long Tread life
  • Cheap tires
Cons
  • Weak mud performance

There is no denying that nothing is as impressive performing in wet condition as the Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S. The secret for this performance lies in the tread compound with a sophisticated silica base. This tire does not slip easily, giving the drivers lots of confidence.

The grooves also provide an additional layer of lateral protection. As a result, it can reduce the tire surface’s stone retention significantly. This self-cleaning capability can lessen your maintenance budget by a huge margin.

The only weakness that we can find regarding this tire lies in its expensive nature. You will need to fork out quite an investment for 1 set of 4 tires.

Pros
  • Excellent grip on both dry and wet surfaces as well as in the snow
  • Traction is very good on off-road terrain
  • Tires are surprisingly quiet on the highway
  • Self-cleaning mechanism keeping gravel out of tread channels
Cons
  • On the expensive side
  • A little bit noisy

The surfaces that tires need to deal with while off-roading is significantly different from the usual situation. To combat this issue, the Yokohama GEOLANDAR AT G015 utilizes an especially tough all-season tire Enduro tread compound featuring orange oil and some specialized polymers.

It also does not have the same on-road weakness that most off-road tires have. This is due to the EdgeTec grooves, which can respectably survive mud, sand, and dirt. Of course, it is, by no means, a serious mud tire, but it can do its job respectably well.

The only thing that you need to keep in mind is the fact that this model makes quite some noise. You should not expect a relaxing ride with it.

Pros
  • Good off-road
  • Well-mannered on the highway
  • Longer lasting tread life
  • Respectable wet and dry asphalt performance
Cons
  • Noisy
  • Struggling with snow traction

The BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport LT has a unique silica-enhanced tread compound. This compound, together with the 3D Active siping technology and symmetric tread pattern, gives it lots of traction and grip in snowy situations.

You will also notice that this tire is much more stable while cornering than other options. The reason for this strength is its ETEC system working together with the symmetrical design. They optimize the footprints of the tire to a certain degree, ensuring no wasteful movement.

However, this system also creates the biggest weakness of this tire, noise. Do not expect to experience a quiet time riding these tires.

Pros
  • Good wet and dry grip, traction, braking, and handling
  • 3-peak snowflake emblem for cold weather
  • Reliable cornering in dry and wet conditions
  • Hydroplaning resistance
Cons
  • Loud noises
  • Confusing tire sizes
  • Not that good for highway driving

The General Grabber HTS60 has an improved center rib, notched shoulders, and intermediate tread blocks. As a result, steering response and dry handling/traction are improved tremendously. All of these advantages work together to give out quite a comfortable ride.

This comfort is further enhanced thanks to an additional layer of rubber in the tread. That’s not all, as the sound barrier ribs also lower the outside noise tremendously, improving the pleasant feeling even more.

We are, however, not that satisfied with the heavy-duty size options, as they lack sufficient grip. As such, they struggle while carrying heavier loads if there is rain.

Pros
  • Affordable
  • Reliable traction throughout the year
  • Capable of braking on wet or snow-covered road surfaces
Cons
  • The heavy-duty sizes are weak with rain
  • Lacking in ways to deal with heavy snows

The BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain TA KM3 is, first and foremost, built for muddy terrains. It has the newest Mud-phobic tech, which places shoulder-bars with special shapes. These bars do a great job at discharging any compacted mud so that the traction won’t suffer in muddy conditions.

The tread blocks are also special, as they are much bigger than the usual size. This build helps to render a much more remarkable grip, no matter which direction it’s approaching from. Moreover, this tire has the famous CoreGard Max tech that made the Baja T/A KR3 so strong.

It sadly doesn’t have the latter’s effectiveness in sandy conditions. We strongly advise against using it on this type of surface.

Pros
  • Extremely efficient against mud
  • Splendid pinch shock resistance
  • Gravel chip-and-tear resistance
  • Minimum on-road noise
Cons
  • Not as effective on sand
  • It may not fit larger wheels

There is one aspect in which the Cooper Discoverer SRX is leaps and bounds better than its competitors, steering response.

First of all, it has the StabilEdge tech, which stabilizes its tread surface for uneven pavements and cornering. There is also a specifically designed tread pattern focusing on enhancing its responsiveness.

The combination of 3D micro-gauge sipes and high-silica tread compound also improves its grip significantly. As such, it performs rather well on dry as well as wet pavement. Another benefit of the high-silica tread compound is good braking in wet conditions.

However, you should keep in mind that silica struggles with snow and ice. The tire will, in turn, have weak traction and braking performance.

Pros
  • Excellent dry and wet traction/braking performance
  • Responsive handling
  • Comfortable ride quality
  • Long Tread Life
Cons
  • Weak traction/braking on deep snow and ice in dry weather
