    I need some advice on new tires. I would like to hear which ones worked well for you and which ones to stay away from. I know from alot of you that Dunlops are garbage. But I also know alot of it is personal preferance. I'll give you a rundown on what I have and you let me know.

    Current tires are Yokahama Geolander AT II 31-10.50-15 on TRD alloys.
    I live in Colorado so ice and snow traction is a must. I do very little off roading. I've had Goodyear Wranglers AT's, didn't do well at all quiet but zero traction. The Yok's are a love hate relationship, great in snow and off road, very noisy on highway and needed constant balancing, but did get the promised 50k out of them. One more thing I'm lookn' for some black steelies or maybe painting my current rims. (TURDTACO's paint job on his rims came out great in my opion)

    Bridgestone Dueler Revo's have been good for us....My husband had a set on the Grand Cherokee. I had a set of Dueler A/T's on my 96 tacoma years ago before the Revo's came out. They also did very nicely in all sorts of weather/snow/etc.

    BFG's are good also - although I've never had a set of A/T's myself. They'd be one of my choices.

    Suggestions...

    Firestone Destination A/Ts - I had these on my Suburban (2WD) driving I-70 from Glenwood Springs (Colorado Mountain College) to Nederland (Parent's house) for two semesters. Excellent in the snow and ice. They are quiet on the open road as well (Nederland to Greeley).

    Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armors - Many of my friends have these, and swear by them. They are a great tire - just a bit pricey.

    Bridgestone Dueler A/Ts - Excellent tire. My father prefered these over the Destination A/Ts on the Suburban. I took them off since they had 50,000 miles on them.

    NEW KID ON THE BLOCK - Nitto Terra Grapplers - Good price, good ratings, etc... I might try these on my wife's RAV4.

    Good luck! :D
