Highway tire recommendations?
I need new tires. We do 98% of our driving on highway, with the rest on Forest Service or BLM roads looking for a boondocking spot every night. I've searched the forum for info but now looking for more up to date advice.
Our SMB is a 2005 E250, 2wd with LSD. We've been running Michelin Defender LTX M/S, 225/75/16. It's been a great tire for our needs. Unfortunately, it has been discontinued and my tire shop is pushing the Michelin Agilis LTX LT. I'm not sure I want that since it's fairly new without a long track record.
Not long after we bought our van we had a blowout in rural Oregon and the local Les Schwab put us into their private brand AT tires. I hated the noise and the wandering on the highway so had them swapped to the Defenders when we got home. That's my only experience with AT tires. If there were an AT tire as quiet and with good tracking as the Defender I'd consider it.
Any recommendations for a quiet and well behaved highway tire?
