Tire Concerns: The best truck tire for gravel roads

Tire Concerns: The best truck tire for gravel roads

We do most of our driving on a gravel haul road, 180km. at a time. The road really wears on our tires. What would the best tire be for this size- LT265/70 R17.

Editorial Comment:

We are reluctant to make any specific recommendations based on a very simple, un-detailed question because, so often, the best answer depends on the details.

The best I can advise is to discuss your needs with a local dealer who you have confidence in and who is familiar with both your vehicle, the road and weather conditions, etc.

You'll likely be looking at a rugged off-the-road tire which would be somewhat noisy if driven on paved roads, but would give you good service.

Other readers have spoken highly of the Hercules brand for use in similar kinds of roads, you may wish to see if these are available in your locality and see how they compare with others which are offered.
