had to post this review...LOL
I live on the I70 corridor, in the rockies, and drive daily in the snow all winter. In the summer it's mostly highway ,and about 20% off road, This tire is a go anywhere and do anything tire. If you are a smart driver ,this tire is excellent. I drive with 300-400 lbs in the back all winter, as my truck is light in the back end . Ive never had a problem ever. I 've taken this truck down the freeway when it was a mirror finnish, dangerous Ice, 14 cars and trucks off the road in three mile's ,and never had a problem. The heavy rain and aqua planing ability of these tires is the best ive had to date. doing 90 miles and hr in front off a thunder cell in Kansas ,as few months ago, I stuck to the road like snot to a blanket . My only problem is the wear , I'm at 25,000miles and I cant get another winter out off them, a summer ,mayby?, but it is to be expected I guess ,as you can't have a good four season tire and not expect them to go early. i will try something different next . If I was rich I would buy these again as they worked well on my truck . But with lots off expenses ,I need a tire that lasts another 30,000.

i've also read reviews of the Hankook DYNAPRO AT/M's. they seem like a good looking AT to me, quite similar in design to the Toyo AT's but rated better in on/off road and in wear

Never had hakook
had toyo at...eh!
had nitto terra but in fairness they were on a big diesel...20k miles

thinking that a sport should have a street tire that can handle some dirt roads... not all out a/t tires...

opinions??????

yeah, if you dont need the agressiveness of a real AT nor care about the look of them on the truck then i'd probably go with the Bridgestone Revo's or the GY Silent Armor's

maybe get a set of those if you were impressed by them...? i think they only have a 40,000 tread warranty on them though.

I'm guessing that's for the Revos?

Sounds almost identical to my experience with them, right down to living and driving on the I-70 corridor in winter. They're great when they're new, but they get progressively bad as they wear. I got 56k on mine, but I should have replaced them 10-15k miles sooner. I just took it really slow last winter. They were also pretty noisy, and the noise only got worse as they wore.

I have the Michelin AT2's right now, and got them for less than the Revo's cost. So far, I like them a lot. Quiet, smooth, good off-road traction, and have done well in what little rain they've seen... still waiting for a good snow to see how they do in the snow though.
