    Went the the 275/70/17 Firestone Destinations A/T.. Wasn't really excited to pick them up but got them for $613 and $301 dollars off of original price so i couldn't complain much.. They are quite a bit bigger than my stock Goodrich tires (which are bald as you can tell) Waiting on the Ballistic Jesters to come in then i can get them installed!

    Well i was excited, but i was leaning for more of the Coopers S/T Maxx, BFGoodrich A/T's first, but really ended up settling with this.. Not a bad tire at all. After i got to looking at it, i really like the thread and can't wait to get them on.. For such a great deal on them i couldn't pass them up for $300 Less..

    You did state that you bought 17" tires yet your pic shows 16" OEM alloys in the background. Hope you didn't do a mistake.

    Heard mixed reviews about Nitto's.. Some people get good mileage on them, some people don't..A friend of mine works for Firestone and get me such a good discount i couldn't pass on it.
