    Best tires for my Tundra... for the Front Range.

    Ha!

    But for real... jeffkenn's thread turned into a sh!tshow, but towards the end someone threw Bridgestone Dueller's into the mix, which is what I am leaning towards when I replace tires on my '06 Tundra. What's on there now are some crap-@ss off-brand tyres the dealer tossed on there to sell the truck, looking for something more better than that.

    I had BFG All Terrain T/A's on my Taco, and liked those pretty well. Might be a BIT aggressive for the terrain I normally ride errrr... DRIVE, here in Colorado. I don't four-wheel it up, but I'm often in the mountains either biking or snowboarding so I'd need something that can go off-highway, but still do decently for the MPG's on I-70. Really leaning towards the Bridgestones, but will welcome other suggestions...

    Cuz you know... I like to ride uuhhhh DRIVE cross country, up and downhill (gotta earn your turns, right?), but with the occasional lift-served or shuttle day thrown in here and there, pretty much everything except Freeriding, what with the price of gas these days and all.

    So... whatya guys think? What are ya'll running on your shuttle trucks... I mean errr, vehicles?







    The older I get, the faster I was.

    I've had about 5 or 6 sets so far, you can't compare for the money. They take all the fun out of winter driving though, it's WAY harder to get sideways than a normal tire.
    If you're looking for a summer tire, there are likely companies that are just as good but for winter, once you buy a set, you'll never want anything else.

    http://www.treadwright.com/shopnow/p...inel-at-e.aspx

    These are what I've run the last few sets, I drive about 100+ miles a day above 9k & these get good mileage but perform like a studded tire. (they'll run you about $500 installed for the set) They also have mud tires if you just want to look cool though...

    I dunno if I'd call BFG mall terrains too aggressive for general road use I have heard good reviews for the Dueler A/T's. Personally I run BFG A/T's and get a lot of miles out of them. My only few complaints are the bit of extra noise and the fact that they aren't the best in mud but I avoid that like the plague anyway. One plus about running A/T tires even though you don't offroad often is its nice to know that your sidewalls are going to be OK when you repetitively drag them across the curb because you still can't park after 15 years of driving...

    Weird, I just put a set of Bridgestone Duelers on my Frontier a few weeks ago. CostCo has them for $125 roughly and they have a $70 off coupon right now.

    I just went through this a few months ago and ended up getting the Big O Bigfoot A/T tires for my Xterra. They are cheaper than the big name brands, have a 50k warranty, an included road hazard warranty, and supposedly are made in the USA by Cooper tires. So far they've done very well in snow and can handle light duty wheelin' no problem.

    I put Bridgestone Dueler Revos on my Dakota at 67k and I'm about to replace them at 109k in a couple of weeks. They did pretty good in the snow but I would have expected a few more miles from them. I am leaning towards the General Grabber HTS as they were recommended by Consumer Reports and I don't think I need another A/T tire for my 99% highway driving. TireRack also gives them a pretty high rating from user feedback. I found them at another online retailer for $102 for the 265/70/16 size.

    you'll get the same responses as the other tire threads in these here parts... "tire A rules!" "tire A sucks!"...

    i've been happy w/ the the toyo all terrain, especially in snow. miss the look of the cooper mudders i was running before, but the price/size was right. i also looked hard at the big O XT (and the duellers for that matter). chances are you won't go wrong for the usage you're after, methinks.

    I'm the one from the previous thread with the Duelers.

    When I bought my truck it had Duelers on it that were basically bald. I did a little research into the Duelers and found that all but the Revos were absolute crap. The Revos, on the other hand, received high marks in every test. I've had them a little over a year now, and I'd say they are good. I'd like a little more grip in the snow, but they are still competent enough and give good mileage.

    But I still want to go up to 30/9.5 just so I can be in the thirty inch + crowd.

    I use the TOYO on my Tacoma and they have been great. I have about 40K on them and they still have a good amount of tread...really impressed so far.

    Just to throw another one in the mix, take a look at the Nitto Terra-Grappler. I have had them on my truck for about 20K and they have done well in all conditions I have put them in. You can also get them from discounttiredirect.com with free shipping and no tax.

    I've had the Cooper LTZ Zeons on my Tundra for the last two seasons... er years.
    They have been superb. As aggresive as the BFG, but with more manners.



    However, I'm not sure they make any that'll fit your teenage rims.

    As in the other thread, Bridgestone Revo's here. Had two sets of them on the Tacoma. Excellent tires. The last set of tires I put on the TiRD were Bridgestone AT's and learned two things: they cost more and they suck balls.

    BTW, talk to Brian at Rex Tire in the Springs. Drop my name. Brian has hooked me up on the tires for the VW's and the Jeep and I wouldn't go anywhere else now. EXCELLENT customer service and even better pricing. Family business & not a chain too!

    I just put on the Michelin LTX M&S- quietest tire yet- very comfortable ride too. They are really good on the highway and last forever, from what I hear/read. I have used the A/T Revos and they are my best overall choice if I were doing a bit more offroad stuff.

    My budget choice would be the Grabbers. The BFG ATs are good but I do find them a bit too loud and not very good through water at highway speeds. If on a lot of forest service roads or rocky trails, they would jump to the top, along with the A/T Revos.

    I actually have a set of Michelin snow tires for the winter time on a different set of rims. They're awesome, very consistent so it adds confidence because you know what your truck will be doing.

    4wd, traction control and snow tires = screw you blizzard I'm staying on the road.

    Someone already mentioned buying at Costco, and I wanted to +1 that. I saved $300 over any other tire store (on BFG AT's).

    Another vote for the AT Revo. I have them on my two trucks now... Tundra and 95 Toy. Quiet enough on hwy, good in rain, dang decent off road and in snow.

    I would only go BFG All Terrain T/A's if I was doing more off road than on. Not really good for snow, noisy on hwy and not good for rainy wet roads.

    Discount Tire price matched Costco when I was shopping (for the BFG ATs as well). Discount Tire's service is pretty damn stellar IME, so I got the Costco price with their service.

    Another vote for Nitto Terra's. Best all around tire I think. They have excellent grip in all situations, and are quiet on the highways cuz of their softer rubber compound. I hear they do wear out quicker than others though.

    I've bought from Discount Tire before, and they were awesome to deal with. When I caught 4 nails going over Cottonwood Pass one summer, they basically pro-rated the afflicted tire, and let me get into a "road hazard" warranty thingy (after the fact) to cover the whole deal, making my bill less than would be paying for just a new tire. IMO they didn't have to do that, could have said "you caught some nails, sorry, chump" but they worked with me to get me a good deal on a replacement tire. Maybe that's standard practice amongst tire dealers, but it sure seemed cool of them to me at the time.

    That's pretty damned good service.

    With Costco that road hazard "insurance" is built-in. I don't think you can even buy tires without it...

    ~40,000 on my nittos so far. Might have about another 10K left in them. I tow with my pickup quite a bit also. Service from discount is stellar, they have been more than helpful to me. Balance tires on command for free, fix nails punctures free. I have the means to do these things myself but since they do it with a smile and no charge, screw it.

    Apparently its not a coupon, its just a deal going right now. http://tires2.costco.com/Home.aspx

    But I found this http://www.bridgestonepromotions.com/details/SP10US.pdf I'm not sure if they'll honor it if you get $70 off the set to start with but its worth a shot. I just found that and am filling it out right now.

    *Edit My Duelers are the ATs but not the Revos, probably why they were a little cheaper. The website says 147.99 but I paid 125 BEFORE the coupon. I checked a different size and the price was 136.99, strange it must vary a lot based on tire size.

    I can top it. Brian at Rex Tire in the CoSprings. Bought a set of Nokians for my bus. Drove 'em around a bit, from Grand Junction to Denver, around town. They were just a little too big for how the bus was lowered. He took 'em back no questions asked, 100% refund, wouldn't even take my money. I'd picked the tires and it was all on me since this was a custom job. I finally forced a $100 on him and said he'd credit it to my account. He ordered me the right size tires for my bus with a $0 balance. I've bought two sets of tires from him since, both custom setups where he had to do a lot of research to figure out what'd work. It's awesome working with a family owned biz. Last two sets of tires were for Jill's '58 and a set of hard to find 9.00x16's (36" skinnies) for the Jeep I'm working on:

    Me too. I've had a few FSJ's. For this one, I'm swapping the engine and putting an interior in it and a few 4wd upgrade, but the rest is staying as is. I've had this one for 12 years and it's grown on me.

    Here's my old J10 and my old Wanganeer (still have it):

    Yeah, they're retreads. As a snowmobiler & a diesel driver, I have to do all I can to right my wrongs, retreads are one of my efforts!
    I've got around 300k on these tires over a few generations, and yeah, this newer tread looks suspiciously like the revos. On the other hand, the revos look suspiciously like a set of one of the japanese tires that everyone in Grand county seems to use (nittos or something like that), that tire has been around longer than the bridgestone pattern by a decent ways.

    I get about 40-50k out of a set, I just get new ones each fall. They're worth a try, I have yet to see someone buy them & then buy
    (and they're black, with knobbies, so they fit the criteria!)

    A lot of good tires out there; I can only comment on those tires that I have used. During the Fall/Winter I drive a lot of miles in my suburban driving to Montana, Nebraska, Kansas, and Texas, taking my pointing dogs upland hunting. I drive both off-highway in deep mud and snow as well as on the highway to get to these hunting locations.

    I currently have the stock Duellers on my 2008 Suburban. 29,000 miles and I have been suprised by them. They have actually done pretty well in mud and snow and are quiet on the highway. No hydroplaning in the rain. But they have a very soft sidewall and are not a very grippy tire on dry roads. I am not interested in replacing the same tire; I want something with better overall traction and a tire that instills more confidence.

    By far the best tire that I have ever put on a truck is the Goodyear Wrangler ATS in a LT. That tire was quiet, had awesome traction in mud/snow/rain/dry. And it lasted over 70K miles. I bottomed out a suburban several times in mud and it just kept going with those tires. I also did the same thing in the snow. I couldn't see were the dirt road was in a snow storm and drove the 'burban into a ditch. The truck was sunk in over three feet of snow and I was able to drive out. Awesome tire.

    Highly recommend Michelin LTX M/S. Got 80k+ from a set. Replaced them with the LTX A/T2. Michelin now has the 2nd generation of LTX M/S. You'll pay more for the Michelins, but they last a long time.

    Also highly recommend Discount Tire. They'll match Cosco, etc. prices and their customer service has always been great.

    I bought my rims from Discount Tire and they were great, even gave me $70 off the set with a bit of a nudge

    However, despite matching CostCo TIRE prices they don't match the overall price. CostCo includes the roadside warranty, lifetime balancing and lifetime rotation for free. Even with the price match CostCo comes out cheaper.

    So I brought the rims over to CostCo and they mounted up tires to the new rims. Now I have a winter/summer set I can change myself.

    You have just been mentally Rick Roll'd. Yup you're thinking about it right now aren't you? Don't fight it.

    Discount Tire has lifetime balancing and rotation, so the only difference is the road hazard warranty, and like the other poster, they essentially gave me the road hazard warranty for free, when I took a tire into them that had blown out.

    I am not necessarily saying they are better than Costco, but the service is a little more personal, and the kicker for me is that they are in town, whereas Costco is 10 miles away. Not trying to discourage people from going to Costco, but if Discount Tire is more convenient, as it is for me, it is not worth driving to Costco IMO.

    i've bought 100% of my tires from discount since i scored a license in 1993.

    if you give them repeat business, buy the road hazard protection and haggle with them a bit they always take care of you, both in terms of price and service.

    i always do my research and check everything out, but i always stop into discount one last time before i pull the trigger and they always give me the best deal.
