It was 45,000 miles and 4 years ago that I posted on this subject. After a lot of research, I settled on the Firestone Destination LE P265/70R18. These tires will easily cruise into the 50K mark without issue. So for tire life, years of service and their performance they were a great tire for the money on my 2005 Titan Crew SE.
It is that time again to look for new tires. At my first look at the usual online suspects I see not much has changed except the price! Man have tire prices gone north.
The only mods to my Titan are the JVA cat back exhaust from Burtman and truxedo cover. Using that 5 gallons of unleaded foot that I purchased 7 years ago... I have averaged 16.5 mpg on the highway and basically crap around town because you just have to drive this truck off the line at stop signs and stop lights...
Before I go with the same tire that I have been very happy with I just wanted to see what the other rank and file Titan owners that have kept their trucks close to stock are running on..
I agree with the Falken tires. They run smooth and quiet with a grip both on wet and dry roads. Amazon had them on sale for $116.00 each with FREE SHIPPING. Local tire shop replaced and balanced for $20.00 each.
Have been happy with my Michilin Cross-Terrains. 60K and still 5/32nds of tread left. They were good but not great in deeper snow this past winter. Gave me some problems on slush this past winter too. Prior years were fine.
04 SE, White, CC, 4x4, B.T., Pop w/capt's, Util. Bed package,Splash Guards,Floor Mats. No mods.(none planned except for inchannel vent visors and an 07 exhaust). Gas whore.
About 25K on my Firestone Destination ATs and they still look near new. Remember if you want good gas mileage, get a P tire, not an LT. LTs are heavier, and ride harder because they require more air. They use more gas and more brakes. Plus LT tires are not speed rated over 80 mph (Q rating, I think).
I have your size tire. Kumo Road Venture AT. They were brand new when I bought the truck 1 year ago. I put 22k miles on them and still have good tread and performance out of them. They are smooth running and seem to be comp. priced.
