What you running and how are they working for you.

I am currently running TreadWright Guard Dogs 285/75/16

A little loud but they ride good and are great offroad!

GY Wrangler SilentArmor LT265/70/17 Load Range E.

Working great so far, got them in June of 10 and I barely see any wear. Feel stiffer than the passenger Michelins I had before, but great in dirt, mud, snow, highway.

Treadwright Guard Dog's on BFG tri-ply side walls. 285/70R17

I am loving these tires. They have gotten me into and out of a lot of interesting terrain. Their customer service is amazing and they will bend over backwards to keep the customer happy. I had a issue early on whit a couple of the tires showing some cracking in the mold, they sent me 5 new tires and told me to keep the old set and do whatever I wanted to with them!

Cooper Discoverer ATR: I've only put about 10,000 miles on them, but so far they are holding up well and I haven't gotten stuck in the mud yet!

Currently running Firestone Destination A/T in the stock 245/70R16 size. Currently have 30k on them, but there is plenty of tread life left.

I'm interested to see how well everyone's TreadWrights hold up both in traction and lifespan, because those prices are hard to pass up. For the cost of another set of Destinations I almost get a set of bigger tires from TreadWright and Mark's lift.

Firestone Destination A/T 245/65-17 They're good all round but taking off a bit quick in the rain they spin a lot.

I know for a fact 35s take a lot to fit and 36s rubbed on dry pavement. I don't see any chance of 37s fitting. Esp if you plan to ever leave pavement.

You will cut. A lot. Things will start breaking if you push it hard.

Ask me how I know.

02 TB 3" MarkMc lift: Kumho Road Venture SAT KL61 265/70R16 (stock rims, no spacers). Excellent dry, good wet, and great snow performance.

08 SS:
summer: factory POS Goodyear RS-As 255/50R20 on stock 20s. Not worth buying for your worst enemy, crap wet and horrible snow traction, dry is mediocre.
winter: Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2s 255/65R17 on 17" LTZ rims. Great dry, great wet, and good snow performance.

285-75-16 Goodyear Duratrac. A little bit of noise, not bad for this type of tread. Need to be rotated every 5k to keep cupping to a minimum but have excellent traction in all conditions, icy roads included.

265/50/20 Toyo Proxes ST II - Great so far, but I only have about 1000 miles on them. They do ride much better than the stock Michelin’s

Firestone Destination LE's (came with the ride)
Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRTs, after much searching I decided on this winter tire, and it's awesome so far! Some weight in the back with these tires and I haven't needed 4x4 yet.

265/75/16 treadwright gaurd dogs here, definitely need a lift and wheel spacers to fit and had to trim a bit of the front bumper in the wheel well area. I haven't had any trouble in the sand and through the couple of flooding events we've had they've been good and resistant to hydroplaning, looking forward to the summer and the spring!

I am running a set of BFGoodrich Mud Terrain KM2s 305/65r17 They are awesome and have gotten me through alot. I survived the blizzard last winter and never once got stuck in anything, even though they are supposed to not be very good in snow. Truck rides very smooth with these on dry pavement.

Big-O Bigfoot M+S 265/70-16. The new tires had maybe 1/4" of clearance, so I ground down the outer corner of the upper ball joints slightly. No spacers or lift, but I do have Mark's 3/4" shims up front (not quite level, but much better than stock).

I've not seen any signs of rubbing through this Summer, and the tires give me good grip on snow. Also very quiet out on the highway!

Firestone Destination LE on the stock 245/65-17 wheels. I've had them about 2 years, maybe 30k miles. They are excellent, especially in the rain. My only complaint about them is that because they are essentially a glorified P-rated tire, they are not the best for towing. I add 3-4 extra pounds in them for towing my travel trailer.

Treadwright Guard Dogs in LT35x12.5x17. BFG KM2 carcasses, old-style MTR tread pattern. Traction is not a problem and the TB has enough grunt to spin them and clean them out. They've never loaded up on me and will hold onto 8" wheels at 10psi.




I tried putting one of the 37x14x15 IROKs from my Yota on the TB today. It would fit in back if I pulled the rear bumper. Not a chance up front. :biggrin:

Michelin Latitude Tour FTW!

I love these tires. I got the truck with aged Firestone Destination LE's and replaced them with the Michelin's. MAN!!!!...What a difference.

Seriously, I've never had all-season tires that grip in the snow/ice of Minnesota and cruise quietly and smoothly on long summer trips better than these babies! :cool:

Unless I do the conversion to full "SS" territory or decide to become a Roadie follower, I will buy these tires again and again and again. (However, by the third time I hit "again",
the mileage should be well over 200k!!!):wootwoot:

Started out with the Michelin Cross Terrains - the OEM's lasted 85,000 miles and still had lots of tread. I replaced them b/c they were getting dry rot cracked.

Bought another set of Cross Terrains. No luck the 2nd time around. After about 30,000 miles, they were looking pretty bad.

I bought a set of Firestone Destination A/T's and love them. You will not find an A/T tire as quiet as the Firestones. They look good on the Envoy, and are awesome in the snow/ice. However, in the rain they suck - I find myself spinning the wheels inadvertently sometimes when the light turns green! :lipsrsealed:

Hmm... I ran ~65k on my first set of Cross Terrains, and I too am repurchasing the same set. I sure hope I have more luck than you! Good to hear about the noise level for the firestone though - I'll keep that in mind.

I've noticed this more recently too. They didn't spin quite as much when new, but with 30k miles on them they do in the rain from a stop a bit easier. We'll see how they do this winter in the snow with 30k+ vs last winter when they were brand new. They still look good tread-wise.
