    So, I've never really been a fan of Bridgestone Duelers. I've had them on other vehicles, and factories still put them on new cars. Well, at 33k, I'm looking for a different tire. I live in Western Mass- SNOW!- but I'm not looking to go snow tire/ summer tire changeover 2xs a year. I'm wondering what other tires you guys have gone with. I do a mix of town and highway driving. It's not lifted or modded- no swampers or off-road tires going on, but something better in the rain and snow and yet, no shimmying on the highway would be great. On the 04 reg cab 4x4 I traded, I ran Nokian Vatiivas- AWESOME TIRES but that was a 16" tire- with 17" tires, I've not found them around here. Thanks for the advice!

    Another vote for Revos. I lasted 1,000 miles on my factory dueler h/t tires before buying my Dueler AT Revos in a 265/70/17. HTs were horrible on snow. I went up one size and it looks better plus the speedometer is dead on with gps with the bigger tires. Plus MUCH better traction. Dont forget to throw some sand bags back there.

    Cooper Discovery ATR's are awesome in the snow and are well mannered on dry pavement. The Discovery HTR is a very similar tread pattern and still holds up well to New England winters but, since they're not as aggressive, will be a better street tire.

    Just my 2 cents worth - I hated my Bridgestone Duelers which came stock on my Sport.

    My offroading is primarily on dirt and gravel and with the tight tread pattern of the Bridge's I literally had to pick the stones out of the tread with a flathead screwdriver. Hell, they grommed on to stones even when I wasn't offroading.

    Soooo much happier with my BFG AT KO's! :D

    I don't off-road.... only a couple times a year dragging my "off-road popup" otherwise, only road travelling. Snow, ice, water and road debris are my enemies.

    If price is not a concern, and you don't offroad, Michelin LTX MS2. I have Goodyear Fortera on my Sport and they are about the same price as LTX MS2 and seem to perform great so far and the sidewall looks better than the LTX , but over the long haul they get worse reviews than LTX once they get up in miles. Come to think of it, very hard to find any negative reviews on Michelin LTX MS or MS2's.
