    holding up in what way
    50.000 mil tire great in the wet driving
    great on dry roads over time may make some noise
    but not much if you take of them rotate 5.000 mile
    have the alignment done once a yr and have the right
    air in the tires you should see close to the 50.000 miles :D

    go with the BFG A\Ts if you want a tire that'll last

    Here's my experience with the BFG AT on a 2002 Dodge Ram 4x4: 75,000 miles when I sold the truck, I figured they would still go anther 10-15k. I'm a slacker when it comes to tire rotation, those tires were probably only rotated four times or so.

    However, they are a heavy tire and might decrease fuel economy. Didn't notice a difference on the Dodge from the stock GoodYears, but then again that truck didn't pass many gas stations anyway!

    Thanks guys! I prolly won't be putting them on for another month or so but if you have any other suggestions i'd appreciate it. How are the Good Year Dyna Tracs? Anyone heard any good stuff on em? The tread looks aggresive and so does the sidewall...

    The most dependable and longest lasting tires are BFGs, and yes. I have used them all.

    Give the new goodyear wrangler authority tires a try. I got them and I like them 10x better than any other a/t tire i've had before.

    ???? I drove a set 80,000 miles and if not for the grapefruit sized bubble in the middle of one of them, I might still be driving on them!:goingcrazy:

    My first set of Revos, I drove on them for 60,000 and then sold them for $150.

    Both good tires IMO.
