I had 19.5 wheels in my F450 that I drove a lot.
Hankook's lasted over 100,000 miles and I had to replace them due to age.
Than I bought Chinese Sailung (?) and got honest 60k miles from them

Ended up 245/70r19.5 tires and wheels today.

Chose Continental Hybrid HD3 steers and Continental Terra HD3 drives.

If anyone is interested in the combination, I can post feedback/reviews later.

The steers are a fairly conventional 19.5" drive tire like most people who go 19.5s end up with -- I believe they may be the OE AT option on F-450s?

The drives are definitely more aggressive - but potentially too aggressive for the front, and no siping.

Wow. That is quiet the rear tread. Thought the first pic was the drive until I scrolled down. Interested to here your experience on the noise from them.

Yeah, I was going to run them all around but was worried about them on the steer axle - talked to a tire shop that deals with these, and this was his recommendation based on experience. Makes sense to me. As I think I mentioned elsewhere in this thread, I used Michelin XDS2 tires on my last truck, and these Hybrid HD3 tires look to be very similar.

275-65-20 is a great combination of larger diameter, not so wide and good load rating.
Bonus is, they are not as popular of a size, so the prices are comparatively cheaper than similar load rating wider tires.


Unpopular sizes are the first ones to get discontinued too. So next time you need new tires, you get the wonderful news that your size of choice is no longer made.


Putting 10-ply tires on half ton trucks since aught-four.

But with some good luck, you still might get them after a week wait.

I ended up cancelling the order because the original lead time was 2-3 weeks and they just doubled that to 4-6 weeks -- off to find another vendor, or back to the drawing board.

What was backordered the wheels or tires? If tires, take a look at the Toyo M655 or M920.

Wheels, specifically the steel inners I believe. I was more interested in hearing the timeline than the parts.

Ended up reordering these today since the parts are in, except swapped the fronts out for Cooper RM253 due to stock issues there. Also ordered an Ironman I604 on steel spare.

Need the capacity now, because I'm placing a custom flatbed order.
