    I'm looking to see everyones mileage(tread life) on all types of tires from M/T to A/T. I have to decide this way since money doesn't grow on trees. :rolleyes:

    I understand that totally, but what I meant is how many miles to a set of tires do you actually get. Sorry for the confusion.

    my old 265/70/17 Cooper STs lasted about 40K. My new 255/75/17 BFG mud terrain's have about 12000 on them and they're down to about 75%. Seems like good wear for a M/T. I'd like to add that I drive with a very 'spirited' style on all the curvy roads we have out here in the PNW and I'm getting that kind of mileage.

    Stick on hood scoop from Autozone.
    I'm not getting very good mileage on my BFG A/T's for some reason. They have about 15,000 miles and are at about 50%. I'm thinking the offroading has something to do with it.

    Its probably alignment issues. I dont think they'd be wearing like that even with lots of offroad. I do plenty of offroading on mine and they're fine.:cool:

    I was getting excellent mileage (distance) from the BFG M/T's but they were killing my mpg. It is hard to say with the NG's but I am getting 22 mpg!!! Of course, the CAI helps. I got around 60,000 with the Dueler's that were on it. They had 4-5/32 when I got rid of them.

    My bridgestone duelers were fine for the 1st 25k,then they went to he!#....at 32 k they were pulled and replaced with Geo-Trac xlt's.....these now have 12k and still look brand new,tire wear is almost nill....

    Price wise the Bridges were way outta site and TownFair stands behind the Geo's 100%.....

    Now I do NOT get out and "Play" as hard as some BUT when it snows ,I need to trust my "Taco" to get me there no matter what and with last years record amounts in NH ,I never missed a "Plow" gig;):cool:

    No loud road noise,will carry any "safe" load put in the bed and carry me through anything "nature" puts out PLUS great mpg's....

    Just my 2 cents..

    Snoope back quiet

    I have had a set on order for over a month now. They were out of stock and said 2 weeks till they came back in. So much for that. I am sick of waiting, gonna cancel em and find something local in stock.

    Wheels are Helo HE842 16x8.
    Tires are BF Goodrich KM2 285x75x16.
    I just couldnt wait any longer on the Kumho's. I really wanted to try em out but after a month of backorder they still have no idea when they will come in stock.
