Long-Term Ford F-150 Tires - Reader's Letters

Toyo or Goodyear?

Truck Trend Editors
Dec 20, 2013
Dear Truck Trend,
On page 80 of the January/February 2014 issue in the F-150 long-term test, there are two different tires. One view has Goodyears and the other has Toyos. Did the long-term truck require new tires after 30,000 miles? I have also seen the specifications on the Toyota Tundra Crew Max back-seat legroom shown as 34 inches in some articles. I believe this is the legroom for the Double Cab, not the Crew Max. I think the CrewMax has 44 inches. I have a 2008 Crew Max and it has definitely more room in the back seat than the Ford F-150, but the Ford is much closer with the latest redesign.

Dear Reader,
You have a sharp eye! Our long-termer did start out with Goodyears, but because of some snafus that we would consider abnormal driving, there was damage to two tires, so we decided to replace the whole set. We don't fault the Goodyears. Regarding the F-150's rear-seat legroom, comparing 2012 with 2012, the Ford SuperCrew offers 43.5 inches of space, while the Tundra CrewMax has 44.5 inches of space. But keep in mind that you're comparing an oversize crew cab with a standard crew cab. Apples to apples: Compare the Ford's 43.5-inch legroom with the Tundra Double Cab's 34.7.
