Which are the Best All-Season Tires for the 2020 RAM 1500?

There are a variety of thoughts as to whether you should take off the standard tire that comes with your vehicle and replace it with a different upgraded tire or if you should leave the standard tires on the vehicle. This choice really comes down to performance, needs, and budget.

If you are looking at all-season tires there are top brands that stand out according to several experts. These all-season tires are for standard driving and highway conditions.

Many prefer the Michelin Defender LTX M/S2 tire as their favorite and if you shop around you can find prices ranging from $130 (on Amazon) to over $200 at most retailers. The Defender is known for its quiet ride and wet traction. It is also rated highly for towing and hauling. This tire is rated as a premium performer for all-season tires and has a mileage warranty of 70,000 miles.

The Cooper Discoverer HTP is also an expert choice and comes with a 65,000-mile warranty. It is a quiet-running tire with good ratings as to wet traction and braking; however, in snow, it is not a good choice.

The General Grabber is the next tire mentioned by many tire experts. The heavy-duty versions of this tire are among the highest-rated tires for towing. These are also a quiet and comfortable riding tire and have a very favorable price when compared to other choices. These tires come with a warranty ranging from 50,000 miles to 65,000 miles depending on the tire model chosen.

The next tire rated highly is the Bridgestone Dueler, which is very highly rated for its high-speed stability and quiet, comfortable ride. It has also been reported to have the best durability in this category and has a warranty of 80,000 miles.

There are also good all-around tires such as the offerings from Goodyear (which are a standard tire on the Ram 1500) and BF Goodrich. There are also specialty tires such as Yokohama and Falken that are highly rated by driving enthusiasts for their excellent responsiveness.

Which are the Best All-Terrain Tires for the 2020 RAM 1500?

All-terrain tires are tires that are designed to handle off-road conditions and cover specialty mud-terrain conditions. The highest-rated of these according to many experts is the Falken Wildpeak series of tires. It offers excellent off-road traction as it has the deepest tread in the category, making it the tire of choice for gravel, rocks, sand, and mud conditions. The Falken is also noted as a very good tire for towing and hauling but does get negative points for its higher noise level than other tires in this class.

The BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A series of tires also receive high marks in this tire category. The Goodrich tire has patented technologies that give it excellent performance in snow, sand, and mud conditions. Goodrich claims that specially formulated rubber in this tire gives it two times longer tread life on gravel and a 15% longer tread life on asphalt. This tire also is rated among the quietest tires for road noise in the category and it comes with a six-year limited warranty on materials and workmanship.

Also mentioned as a top-rated tire in this category is the Mickey Thompson Deegan 38 model. According to the manufacturer, these tires are made with a proprietary silica-reinforced tread compound that gives excellent traction in all conditions, both on-road and off-road. This tire is designed with off-road traction while being chip and cut resistant. It is also among the quietest tires in all driving conditions. The tire has a comprehensive limited warranty.

Among the pricier choices in this tire category is the Nitto Exo Grappler series of tires. The manufacturer claims that its innovative tread designs will get you through any challenging conditions you may encounter. The claim is that the tread design minimizes stone retention and drilling and allows for enhanced water and slush evacuation, which gives you safe driving in stones, sand, and snow. The tire comes with a limited five-year warranty on materials and workmanship.

All of the previously mentioned tires in the all-terrain category give you good traction and handling in mud conditions but the king of the mud-terrain tires according to many raters is the Nitto Mud Grappler. Again, this is among the pricier tires in the category, but this tire is designed to handle the most brutal conditions off-road. The design of this tire will give you supreme confidence that you will not get stuck in the mud while being durable and offering a quiet and comfortable ride. The manufacturer provides a limited warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

There are several good choices for tires that will fit your 2020 Dodge Ram 1500 in the driving conditions which you anticipate facing. The tires come with several different design features and they come in a wide range of prices. There are so many different options that it's impossible to mention them all.
