Who truely makes the best 10 or 12 ply tire

I am so tired of every tire outfit having the "Best" tires. I have ran Hercules, Firestone, Goodyear, Cooper and all do not handle heavy loads well. It sure would be nice to get 25,000 out of a tire. I need a stiff, mildly aggressive 17 inch tire that really hold up. Cost is important but I am willing to pay a lot more for a lot better tire. Let me know as well as maybe some links to another tire outlet.

Thanks

Bridgestone. I run bridgestone dueller revo's on my dually and get 50k out of them. Also ran bridgestone v-steels on my 2wd dually and dual tandem trailer when I was a hot shot. Could get 60k out of them and they handled a load great.

Toyo fan.

Another vote for Toyo. I had a near catastrophic blowout with my Bridgestone AT's(D rated w/3305# load rating per tire. At the time of the blowout they had 2200# per tire on them. Complete tread separation.) Bfg's followed with vibration problems that BFG nor Discount would address. Switched to Toyo's on the '99 and running them now on the '07. Minimal weight needed and a huge payload rating. Zero vibes in either truck w/Toyo products. Sold to the American.

As I cant say much, i heard alot of good of michelins. i run stock generals on my dually and that is a pure hot shot truck with avg loads of 21k pounds on gn. I never run with no trailer with this truck. I got 35k on her now with 1 tire rotation at 20k. Plan on doing another rotation at 40k. I have at around another 50 percent left of tires. So im pleased so far. As for trailer tires, I have lone star karriers on them with load range e. I had brand new tires on trailer when I bought truck. I have had 2 giant pimples that made me replace when tread still looks awesome, and other tires are wearing improperely and have uneven spots which give now a bouncy ride. I HATE THEse TIRes. Once these tires get to the point of new tires, i will not go back. I thinbik these tires suck because of load rating though.

Best to get out of the consumer tire segment and into the commercial tire segment. Look at Toyo M-55's (I think that is the number) Hard wearing and long lasting and aggressive enough. The drawbacks to them are mostly noise related and ride related. (stiff, hard rubber)

M-55 are known as a tough-long lasting tire. Sizes in 17" wheels are limited though. That's where the Open Country AT/MT come in with a wide range of sizes as well as higher load capacities.
