    Hey all.
    I have had my Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2's for less than 2 years and less than 30000 miles, they are at 3/32nds tread left, meaning time to buy some new tires... preferably All Terrain tires.

    I bought these tires off Tire Rack, and they had "good" reviews, but id like a tire that lasts 50000+ miles.

    I would like to know what you would recommend, id like to spend less than $180 per tire (im not worried about the cost of mounting and balancing)

    If i get the sport rims like i plan ill be looking for 265/70(or75)/r17

    if i dont and i keep the stock off road rims, ill be looking for 265/70(or 75)/r16

    Both sizes in P-rate unless the LT-rated are reallllly good.

    I would like to know how the tires YOU recommend perform in the snow, ice, wet and slight offroad traction (nothing more than a pretty bumpy dirt road for a while)

    Thanks much!

    Justin

    Lately Ive been whoring out the Nitto TRAIL grapplers since i love mine so much :D However, i have no experience with them in the snow/ice yet and while offroad so far, Ive had my jetski towing behind me - so I havent busted on them yet offroad yet either.

    Ive had them 4 months so im not sure how fast or slow they will wear yet. But what I love most about these tires for sure is that they look dead sexy and they only cost me $215ea from www.onlinetires.com vs $275-300!!!!

    My truck is about 85-90% street driven and no complaints there so far.

    I just bought some Nitto Terra Grapplers for my truck. My previous set lasted about 50k. They ride very good (35psi) and perform well off road. I got em from onlinetires.com and saved about $200 compared to discount tires price. But I was able to mount and balance them myself so that saved me even more $$.

    Check into the General Grabber A/t 2's. I dont know if they come in that size, but iv'e really liked mine. Good grip, no experience on ice tho
