    I have had Pro Comp Xterrains on my truck for 25k miles. I'm moving away from the look and going for more comfort and sound. I currently have 17X9in wheels. I was running 305/65/17. I'm looking at the Firestone Destination AT and the Duro Trac Goodyear's. The Duro Trac's look to be noisy but I do like the more rugged look. Are there any suggestions you guys have for me. I'm looking at a 285/70/17 I'm open for any tier suggestions I'm feed up with the research. Every time i start feeling good about a tier someone shoots me down

    how do they ride on the highway? I have been told that they ware down faster then any other brand. what are your thoughts. I know with the lighter taco's that might not be an issue. I like the seat covers can you lead me in the right direction to find those same ones. Thanks

    I had Firestone Destination ATs on my 02. They were a well rounded tire and I think bargain priced. I would recommend them.

    No matter what tire you look at, somebody is gonna shoot it down. Everyone has an opinion and no matter what you choose, somebody somewhere is gonna think it sucks. Just remember you are looking at opinions.:)

    I have about 33K on the tires right now, and they have about half the tread left. They ride much nicer than the BFG's on the road. Seat covers came from Wet Okole. :)
