    I need new tires for my F450 2wd. It's a plow truck and sees little milage.
    They are the 19.5 wheels

    I just bought some tires for my F450. I went with Hercules, kinda an off brand, but much cheaper than Goodyear, General etc. Id shop around to try and find the best price. These tires were somewhere around 293 a piece mounted.

    Are you running steers up front or a more aggressive tire like the rear? Have steers on my 3500hd thought about swaping them out in the winter, but not sure it would be wourth the aggrevation/money. For a high miles per year on the trucks stay with the high end brand names, you will see much better tire wear vs lowend.

    I will run the same tire on the front. It will see little milage outside of plowing

    Got a few prices today, Michelin XD52 $320 per tire. These were load range G. The others I got prices on, Continentals load range F $242 and the Bridgestone $290 load range F
    The tire shop has a recaps and those were 120 a piece. Depending on my tires though if they were good, sidewalls and casing
