    Hey guys.. So Im about to hit 75k on my stock Bridgestone Duler HTs. They have been okay tires but the tread is all gone and I'm in need of some new rubber.

    I need tires for daily highway commute. 66 miles roundtrip every day! Definitely need some long lasting tires that wont break the bank. Currently renovating my entire home so price is important. I also live in Florida so winter tires aren't required. And I hate winter so I don't expect to be driving to the Yukon anytime soon.

    What you want is a highway rib tire...good for rain, and long lasting. Michelin makes a VERY nice one that should last 100k miles.

    But here is a more reasonable one by General...used to run the old General Grabbers AP on my FJ60 in the 31x10.50-15 size...$60 each from Sams...

    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    IMO BF GOODRICH COMMERCIAL T/A Radials are the best tires I've ever had for pavement driving and I'll be buying them again.

    Michelin MS2's are the bomb. Got them on my truck and love them. I do 99% freeway driving.

    The Michelin M/S 2 tire would be an excellent choice for your highway driving in Florida. The have a manufacturers limited wear warranty for 70,000 miles.

    The M/S actually stands for Multi / Surfaces. These tires are very quiet and ride exceptionally smooth. I have been running this tire in Arizona for a long time and am very happy with them.

    Let us know if we can be of assistance.

    Have you checked out Yokohama Geolander ATS? That is what I went with, seemed to be a great choice for the $. They ride great, quiet and can't really tell a difference from my stock Dunlops. Of course I'm running 16's so I don't know about the pricing for the 17's on these. I've only had mine about 2 1/2 weeks and love them so far. Here's a pic.
