Dick Cepek Radial F-C II
Follow-Up Review: 15,500 miles on tires
November 10, 2011
With one year of testing this tire is the best all around tire I have ever run on a diesel truck. I have towed very heavy, driven long distances at high speeds and subjected this tire to enough torque that would melt lesser tires. After 15k plus miles, tires now have 15/32nds remaining. Tires have stayed in balance and required minimum weights to balance. Wear has been even with the exception of some slight feathering due to worn tie rods. These tires will talk to you between 30 and 45 mph, but quiet down above 50. Snow traction is excellent, especially if they are aired down.
Initial Review: 5,000 miles on tires
April 14, 2011

I drive a 2002 Silverado with a Duramax Diesel that is pushing 500 rwhp. My truck is heavy, weighing about 9000 lbs empty and I tow heavy quite often. I purchased these tires after reading about others who got very good tread wear. I have run BFG A/T's on this truck and only got 22k, Mickey Thompson MTZ which went about 25k on first set, second set of MTZ's were wearing very fast and I sold them. These tires are wearing like iron! 5000 miles and I just rotated them and rears have only worn 2/32nds and fronts only 1/32nd. These tires are a bit noisy at around 30 mph but quiet out over 50. Ice traction is very good on my heavy truck, snow traction is also excellent. Mud traction is good. I have been running every tire made for the last 30 years and of late, these are my favorites at the moment.
