    That's a nice tire, you should be happy with them.

    Those are the tires I am planning on getting. How do you like them so far? What size did you get?

    For now these tires are perfect for me. I only have 100 miles on them so far.

    It will be a few years before I get new wheels. I am hoping that these tires work out so I can get the same ones with the new wheels. I plan on going to 265-75-16 tires by then.

    I was also looking at the Revos, but I just could not justify the price of them right now. If these ones do not work out, I may go with the Revos next time.

    Looking at the reviews, more people like the Revos.

    Lots.
    The other tire I would go with is the BF Goodrich T/A KO. A little noise over stock but not much.

    I had those on my girlfriend's XTerra, and they were crap in the snow. That is why I went with the Firestone Destination ATs. I love them in the snow! :D

    why did you only get a 245? that is the width right?

    what was the reason? better ride? cheaper?

    what type of truck do you have?
