18" tire option

Is continental the only company that make a tire size for the new 18" rim. I have the Lt275/70r/18's on my truck and they get no traction in wet weather, Let alone in snow.

The BFG ATs/ are $315 a tire with the 18'' rims and would cost me $1260.Thats not even with tax or install.I would be better off buying 15" rims and those tires for $161 each.

BUT you can't put anything less than a 17" rim on your truck because of your brake calipers... There are probably more tire brands that make good tires...

Toyo / Open Country AT
Good Year / Silent Armour
Cooper / Discoverer ATR
Continental / Contitrac
BFG / All Terrain

I just went thru hell to find a set for my truck, there is no winter tires for them only 4 seasons.

These five make the 275/70/18's that go under the new Ford.
There is also some other weird name brand from Japan or Korea, but I didn't even bother looking.

I finally bought the Cooper since it was the only tire available short notice and the white stuff was starting to fly. I was not going to drive with 4 bald tires to wait for a Toyo or the Good Year since I thought they had the most aggressive thread for winter driving. But I can say the Cooper's have surprised me and I am very satisfied.

BTW the truck is a 2006, F350, 6.0, Crew Cab, long box, single wheel.

Hope this helps.
Dan

I found some mud terrain tires on 4wheelparts so you just have to look around and just because the numbers aren't exactly the same as your stock ones doesn't mean anything. 285/65 and 275/70 are almost identical sizes.
