    Anyone who has Geolanders, are going to tell you they are the best..

    Anyone with BFG's are going to tell you they are the best.

    At least 4 people are going to tell you to buy Duratracs.

    I suggest referring to tire rack or discount tire's website to get their reviews....

    Good luck with your choice.

    I've had both, and they are both great choices. Personally, I felt they wore out too fast. If you can get a high miles warranty with road hazard warranty too, either one will do well. A good price won't hurt, either.

    I have BFG's I think the look better but that's entirely personal opinion, they did require plenty of weight to balance but are smooth as glass.

    Both have great road manners, both load up in the mud fast.

    BFG's may last longer but thats not an absolute on every vehicle.

    I would say bang for your buck the geolander is a great tire so if you want to keep more money in your pocket go yoko

    I am at 46,000 right now with my Rugged Trails that came on my 2008 truck from July 2008 when I bought the truck. I just want to ge the best tire. I have the off road truck, but i am going from a 265/70/16 tire to a 265/75/16 tire. It looks like the BFGs are more aggressive looking, but i have heard good things about the YOKOs

    I had the Geolanders and was not happy with them. On wet pavement, they were terrible and on snow they were just dangerous. I will never own another set based on that experience.

    I did a lot of research on this site and others regarding which tires to buy. I ended up getting the Bridgestone Revo II's from Tire Rack. They had a deal where I received a $70 gift card from Bridgestone, which paid most of the shipping.

    The difference in tires are amazing. I realize new tires are going to be better no matter the brand, but I did not expect it to be so much better. We get a lot of snow and ice up here and these tires really exceed my expectations. I have 240 lbs in the bed and have not needed 4WD since I got them. With the Geo's I was in and out of 4WD all the time.


    Definitely stay away from the Geo's.....
