    ....And not the Revo 2's.

    I'm feeling like a slight idiot at this point. I found a set of said tires on craigslist for $300 in 265/75/16 size. I bought my truck with BFG AT's 285's and quickly realized that I wasnt willing to deal with the road noise or the lack of power. So Ive been combing through tons of reviews looking for what would be best for my application. I was set on either the Yokohama at-s or the dueler revo 2's. Found the ad on craiglist for the duelers....title said revo 2's. Met the guy in the dark, didnt take the time to look at the sidewall stamp (or the tread pattern) and took them off his hands happy as could be (they only have 1000 miles on them after all). Got home and realized I bought the first gen Revo. Upon looking, I'm reading way worse reviews about Revos compared to Revo 2's. You guys think I should re-sell them? Surely they can't be that bad, and I'm figuring I can get $400 outta the BFG's given they are only 20% worn.

    Ahhhgghhh.....damn tires make me stress, gonna pop another beer.

    I also have the revos, and they are a great tire in my opinion...way better then the BFG A/T. They work well on snow/ ice, so I'm keeping mine for winter tires, and getting something else for my summer wheels. I also think the original revo has a meaner looking tread pattern then the revo 2. I say good deal.

    Revos are great tires!! Husband had a set on his Grand Cherokee many years ago (original Revos). Can't beat 'em.

    Thanks for the recommendations guys....I mounted them today and put the BFG's up on CL for $500 and had them sold in thirty minutes! Maybe I shoulda asked $600? Anyway....going to take some getting used to the new look..looks pretty street-ish coming from 285 bFG's but oh well, performance over looks in my mind. Road noise is competely gone, and even took the truck out this evening for a test down the dirt, seems to perform equally well as the bfg's..though it was a very short test (engaged locker a few times and only one 4LO section). My mpg will definitely go up...so I'm happy...
