Hi Roger,

I’m needing new tires on my 2017 F250 diesel pickup. I tow a trailer that is just under 7,000 pounds. Would I get better fuel economy switching from the stock A/T tires to a highway tread? Thanks.

Yes in general "Highway" type tires will deliver a little better fuel economy. If you look at the websites from different tire companies (Goodyear, Firestone, Michelin, Cooper, Bridgestone etc) and search on your size and Load Range (Probably LR-E on your F250) you will see some mention All-Traction as in A/T while others mention Highway Traction as H/T.

A/T tires have heavier & deeper tread and this is where the energy goes. Also the tread is a different type of rubber which also consumes energy when driving.
