That was my next choice other than the BFG's.I'm looking at Bridgestone Dueler Revo A/T E Load Range in 265/75R16 size. Pepperidge reccomends them, has them on his truck, and really likes them.
I like those a lot Dave. I know of no one that has ran Kumho's but from the ratings look pretty damn good outside of ice traction. For a M/T tire, I really like the tread. I too am looking at going up to a 17" rim and looking at something other then a BFG A/T KO set that I like, but still leaning towards them. Have been looking more at the Cooper STT's too.I have the Bridgestone Revos on my truck right now. They are doing well on wear, I think I have around 17k on them and they do not really show much wear. I will not be buying them next time because I want a more aggressive tire next. I will say for the most part they do pretty well but they are louder then they should be at highway speeds. I had BFG's KO on my last truck and they where more quite then the Bridgestones but I was not impressed with the traction when in the mud, they did fine for normal street driving but I did not think they had very good tread life once you started using them off road in rural environments.
I am actually wanting to change my wheels out and the XD's I want do not come in 16" so I am going to have to change my tires as well. I am having a hard time finding a tire that I think I will be happy with since I want a mud terrain or close to it. I want a tire with an aggressive look as well and came across these:
They are a Kumho and priced very well for the type of tire. Anyone have an experience with these?
Have you looked into the Mickey Thompson ATZs? I always push these tire because I love my MTZs and 2 of my buddies have these and love them.I'm looking at Bridgestone Dueler Revo A/T E Load Range in 265/75R16 size. Pepperidge reccomends them, has them on his truck, and really likes them.
I had Kelly Safari MSR on my first truck. They did decent but now sure how long they would last. They looked pretty good and I think they did pretty good in the snow.I've looked at them, but my dad wants relatively cheap tires, as now my car needs a tranny, and the Kelly's are the cheapest we have found....
I would assume they are bad to to pick up the rocks in the treads and beat the truck? I had thought about getting 4 extra wheels and mount the snow tires on them and then run my original tires and wheels in the summer. I guy had an ad in the paper (4 (2007) 8 Lug Chevy wheels for 200 bucks) and I called him but he said he sold the 2500HD factory wheels the first day. 200 bucks seemed like a decent price to me.Little noise and they are great in snow. BUT... if you drive alot of gravel they aren't the ones you want.
I've heard great reviews about these tires too but if you want white letter you're out of luck.The BFG T/A KO are some great tires to consider. I put 40,000 on my set that were highway quiet, good in mud, good in gravel and great on wet road, no hydroplaning. But 260.00 each out the door. OUCH! So I looked for weeks and asked other members here and other sites for thier take on tires. I found the one tire that had all the above attributes and 60.00 per tire cheaper out the door. Hankook RF10 or as Paul put it Hancukoo's. So I researched some more on that tire and found they were reviewed very highly by all people that had them on different trucks and suv's. Then I went price digging and found that the cheapest was at discounttire dot youknowwhat for 166.each with free shipping. To make a long story short I got them at Sears at their Price Match of 166.00 each. WOW WE!
I cannot say enough about this tires, SMOOTH and in wet rain, wet snow(Colorado) Great Traction in all conditions SSSSMMMMOOOOTTTHHH!
All terrian you would never know it. Until needed! QUIET! If you want the best for your money get this tire.
