If you drive a light or heavy-duty pickup truck, then you’ll need some durable tires that will perform competently in any weather or terrain. As much as we want to, we can’t test every single tire, so we refer to Tire Rack and Consumer Reports in order to provide fair and accurate ratings to each tire based on test results and customer feedback. Many of these truck tires can work just as well with SUV’s and vans. Here are the best truck tires for sale on Tire Rack and Discount Tire.

For a deeper dive on these tires, along with the many more that were tested, go to consumerreports.org (membership required), or tirerack.com or discounttire.com.

$205.21 at Tire Rack

Key Features

All-Weather vs All-Season Tires

The names are very similar, but there are some key differences to take note of. All-season tires offer great performance, shorter stopping distances and solid ride quality in any month of the year. On the other hand, all-weather tires are exceptional at taking on harsh weather conditions but leave a lot to be desired in dryer conditions. All-weather tires tend to not last as long and make more road noise than their all-season counterpart. 

All-Terrain vs Off-Road Tires

Off-road tires are built for vehicles that spend the majority of time on rougher terrains and away from normal road conditions. All-terrain tires are meant for driving on regular roads but are no slouch on roads covered in gravel, dirt or light mud.

What is the 3PMSF?

The Three Peak Mountian Snowflake Rating is awarded to tires that have been tested has reached a threshold of maintaining traction to accelerate safely in light snow.
