The kind that hold air. See all other trucks built, XLT, FX4, XTR, Lariat, Platinum, Raptor, and Harley Davidson trucks have tires that just can't manage that feat.

Ecoboost is an engine platform NOT a trim level. It's also nothing special where tires are concerned, I want my 15 secs of wasted time replying to this useless question.

I kinda sorta agree. Best tire for a specific engine? Mixed replies should be expected...

Toyo Open Country A/T II.

I have a set and like another poster stated. Great in snow, and rain, and they do last a long time.

Look good too.

I've had the Toyo Open Country A/TII. They kicked ***. My favourite tire. I'll be getting a set this summer to replace these damn Michelins that won't stay balanced.

EcoBoostLariat........ignore the idiots that are more interested in checking you grammar than actually giving advice. Most of us know what you are asking. Common sense is getting hard to find these days.

I've run a lot of tires and keep coming back to Michelin. I'm quite happy with my LTX M/S2's. My dad runs the AT2 and loves it as well. I realize it's extra coin, but the ride quality, treadwear, and handling characteristics make them worth it to me. Cooper also makes a nice AT tire for less money. In my area the dealers have them with a $80 rebate on a set of 4.
