Default Steer Tires vs Drive Tires for '06 Dually

I just replaced the batteries on my 2006 Ram 3500/Cummins this evening, and it is well past time to replace the tires.

What is a good commercial steer tire for a 2 wheel drive, on and off-road truck such as mine?

What about drive tires?

Appreciate any advice/suggestions.

Have used Bridgestone M773 and R273 on a '91 Ford in the past... loved 'em. Not sure if they're avaialable for the Ram.

Everybody has opinions and [usually] experiences about the "best" tire for this or that. Bridgestone makes a good product. If your local tire shop treats you right on price and service after the sale ,go for it.
Owned 2 CTDs- 12v and 5.9 24v Might consider another. Miss the "rattle and whine" .....

i bought 3 sets of Toyo's 1 set on my Toyota, Jeep, 99 Dodge before switching to Michelins.

Michelins have and will last 2X longer and only around 20-30% higher cost. well worth the price difference.

i forget the model, MS something, something MS? I'll check later if your interested in that.
