    See poll above ^^^^^^^^^

    I chose the nittos. I currently have them on my truck, they have never failed me yet. I actually need to get a new set soon, I'm currently wearing out the wear bars on the tread. Can't say much for the revo's but michelins seem to dry crack way too soon for me. I know the tread lasts forever on the michelins but they seem to dry crack long before the tread wears out.

    All of these threads just turn into people telling you that the tires they own are the best.

    On that note, Hankook Dynapro ATM's are very aggressive looking, relatively inexpensive, and have a 50,000 mile warranty. :D

    How quiet are the Nittos on the highway?

    I ask one person and I am told very quiet.

    I ask the next person and I am told loud as hell.

    I've had a set of Hankook ATM's on my F250 for 50k miles and they still have decent tread left.If money were no object I'd go with Michelin.

    Unfortunately I can't really say on the mileage. I bought the truck in Mar 2010 with 85k on it and these tires were already installed. I've got about 95k on it now and the tires needed to be replaced when I bought it ( I got em to drop the price based on that). But if I got 10k miles out of worn out tires, I can imagine they would last for a while.

    As for the noise, my exhaust is too loud to hear the tires, but with my tires being close to bald:eek: it's possible that they might be louder with more tread.

    Your truck is a sport, so im assuming that it had the bridgestones? if thats true then the tires were probably replaced at somewheres around 40,000 (based on the fact that mine have 36,000 and are pretty worn out) so i'd say that they have somewheres around 50,000-60,000. Thats not too bad at all!!

    I couldn't have said it better myself. I'm pretty sure the previous owner never used it off-road. So I'd say that 90% of the miles were street driven, that is until I got it:D.
