    Is there a brand that will last longer than 35,000 miles on an overloaded full size van? I've always run BFG Long Trails on my van but they don't last more than 35,000 miles. Seems like somebody mentioned Firestone TransForce. What kind of tires in everybody running and how many miles do you get out of them?

    10 ply Toyo with highway tread.
    Guessing they last about 65k, as they still have good tread when we sell a truck. The stock BFGs are good for 35-40k for us.

    We've debated leaving the tires alone and just replacing the fronts, as the fronts wear far faster than the rears. Probably end up replacing a whole set just before we sell.

    I'm not sure I'd get much more than 25-30K on front with Ford's twin I-beam ..and the way it cups tread

    Looks like they have great reviews.

    Not bad. We have those on the wife's Fourrunner. They ride smooth as glass.

    That's pretty good.

    Les Schwab has an AT tire called the open range coming out in a September or so with a 60k mile warranty. Planning on running it on my dodge truck. I run Toyo AT2S right now. They last about 40k with a few burnouts and alot of heavy towing. Can't see them lasting less on a van.

    That may be the worst suspension set-up ever. Every bump or turn changes the toe-in and grinds the edges off the tires.
