Thinking about putting some Firestone MT2 295/70r18 on. Anyone have this size and/or combination? Wondering if it will track as bad as stockers. Post up pics if you got it.

First, I too have decided on that size tire if I keep the factory rims....think the extra 3/4 inch width will help your truck track better and look better. As for the Tires....thats what I had on my 2014 FX4 F150...I loved them and they were awsome. Not that noisy at all...only a tiny bit more than BFG ATs....and they were really good tires for a very good price!

I currently have 33x12.50r20 mt2’s on my work truck and they are awesome. Just don’t wanna spend the cake if the truck won’t track any better.

Go to tiresize.com....there you can determine the actual width of every single tire you might consider....and you can look at every available tire size and brand its a fantastic site. I think you need an extra inch width to see an improvement in tracking. but that is a guess

The other little trick is to add castor to your alignment........make your castor +3-3.5 degrees by adding shims....this also cures death wobble.

I ran that size on my 2016 F350 with Yokohama Geolanders so I can't speak for a MT tire in that size. The tires handled great after they were broken in and that size had the highest load rating available for a SRW. Also I ran them with a +1 offset fuel wheel, they didn't rub with the stock suspension, nor did they stick out beyond the fenders.

I was looking at this size due to the max load rating (4080 pounds per tire) and overall weight (67 pounds). This tire is 12" wide and 34.6" tall. I found the Yokohama Geolander X-AT LT295/70R18 on Walmart.com for $247 a tire right now. Tirerack has these listed for $330 so it appears to be a heck of a deal!
