    So I broke down and bought these tires mainly because I was tired of being indecisive. Since I don't have the need to offroad or the assocaited breakage of parts I went very mild with my tire choice at least I think so. I looked at many different tires: BFG, Nitto, General, Bridgestone, you name it I considered as long as it was AT. Based off reviews, price, and no lift I had it narrowed to Bridgestone Revo 2s and FD ATs. I chose the cheaper ones. I have about 1500 miles or so on them and they ride very smoothly, no noticeable noise, grip is decent in rain. I am running 265/75/R16 with no lift, I bought this size bc I plan on lifting just not in a rush to do so. I am satisfied with them for the purpose I bought them for mainly highway riding. Next time I will prob go with something more asthetically pleasing to the eye. These are not very aggressive looking with stock suspension and wheels.

    I've had mine for about 3k miles and I like them alot. I use them on the highway about 85% but I use them in the mountains on dirt/gravel roads and they do great for those conditions. I also had them out in 4-5" of snow on those same gravel/dirt mountain roads at very steep grades with sharp switch backs and they did excellent never once lost traction.

    I didn't buy mine to rock climb or mud swamp but to do exactly what I am doing which is mainly drive on the highway and when I need to drive off-road on gravel, dirt, muddy/snowy off roads trails they are made for that and handle terrific.

    Hope you enjoy yours and we shall see how they do in the long run!

    +1 on this being a good tire for the money. I run 265/75 R16 P. Have about 11K on the set and would buy again.
