    I need new tires, definitely by the end of the year. I have already decided on size, (265/75/16), now I just need to decide on tire.

    While browsing through Tirerack.com I noticed how cheap the Destination M/Ts are in comparison with BFG A/T and M/T. Then I realized they where the #1 rated max tration on tire rack in my size. For only $160 a tire, sounds like a deal. Anybody got any experiance with them?

    I have run the Destination LE's & AT's on a couple of vehicles and they have been great. Sometimes you can find a really good deal at a local Firestone Dealer too...nothing against tire rack at all. No experience with the MT's though

    I ran these tires on my dodge ram 3500 dually. Wore great, took my truck through the badlands, but sucked on road in snowy conditions.
