Post Best tires for EcoBoost

My stock tires are coming to an end and I have started looking for new ones. Im thinking about THESE but not sure if you guys have any other suggestions? I do a lot of highway driving but I want an aggressive looking tire that can still perform off-road and in the snow.

I'd go with Duratracs. They look better and are better in the snow than AT2's.

Not sure if those will fit the EcoBoost or not.

Pretty sure ecoboosts prefer oil and fuel.

I've had the DuraTracs before and had a problem where the sidewall on one of them sliced open for no reason, Goodyear wouldn't do anything about it either, they were only a week old! I've heard that the Toyo's last 2x longer which is a big + as well....

I will only speak from my personal experience with my tire choice. I ran Open Country A/T ll on my last truck and now run them on my 13 Platinum. Living in Utah I see every kind of weather there is. In the snow they work very well. Off road never had a problem with them. Rain they are fantastic. Have not driven them in sand. The way they wear is what impresses me. I like them so much I have two sets for my truck now. Winter wheel and summer wheels both have Open Country A/T ll tires. (I hate having to take tires off one set of wheels to install on the other set of wheels)

I have duratracs on my winter wheels and at2 s on my stock rims for summer. The toyos are way quieter and handle much better towing. I'll never buy new duratracs again they're ok in snow but suck on ice. IMO

Sweet. I think this has verified my Toyo tire purchase. Thanks everyone for the feedback.
