    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

    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.
