Ok guys heres the deal. Its tire time once again, I've always put the same stock tires on. Its a 2007 tundra double cab limited TRD everything is stock, no lift or leveling. I do a lot of Interstate driving and it seems to wear the tires faster, they are BFG 275/65r18 all terrain t/a i think( its been awhile since i bought tires). Im looking to get away from the offload style tire and go with more of just a plain street tire. My question is what would be a good tire to put on it? I've been looking at the michelin defender ltx m/s and a few others that are similar to that. Im wanting a longer lasting tire and a smoother ride then what I'm getting out of the BFG's i have now. any help would be great!

Can’t go wrong with the Michelin ltx. I just put those exact tires on my wife’s Sequoia. They are the new version of the ltx ms2. Same tread but a different compound that is supposed to last even longer. Dealer was running buy 3 get one for $1 sale through the end of October. I’d check on that if it’s convenient for you.

The Michelin LTX as stated earlier or the Continental LX20 which is what I will be putting on my Tundra very soon

I'll pile on. Michelins are hard to beat. Be sure to get normal load range, not the LTs.

Maybe look at 265/70r18 since they tend to be cheaper.

As mentioned the Michelin LTX MS2 is a solid choice if you are looking for a great quality tire that is quiet and smooth riding. Another good choice is the Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015.

Here is a link to all the tires we have in 275/65R-18:

Please send us a PM if we can be of assistance.

I'm alsi going to jump on the michelin ltx m/s train.. I would also look at the continental crosscontact. These seem to be the best all around suv/light truck highway tires.

265/70/18 are worth looking into. I currently have this size on my truck. There seems to be more available options with lower price than 275/65 or the 255/70/18 that come stock. The also look good, being just a bit taller than stock.

I'm just curious... how many miles did you get on your BFGs? This summer, I replaced the factory BFG KOs 285/70-R17 on a '12 Rock Warrior CM and got 60,000 miles on them. I actually could have easily gone another few thousand miles (maybe more), but we did a 7 state camping trip and I wanted new tires before that trip. I put the BFG KO2s in the same size right back on that truck because of the longevity.

Totally understand the need/want to change styles for your highway driving. I keep seeing the Buy 3, Get 1 promoted from Toyota but also check out Discount Tire... as they've been my go-to for decades.
