Bridgestone Revos

My new wheels came in today, American Racing Chrome Victors, and I went to the tire shop to check them out and choose which tire to get. I was checking out his instock tires-Yokohamas, Good Years, Firestones and was going to go with the Firestone Wilderness ATs, but they are discontinued and he only had two of the size I needed. Then he mentioned the Revos and it hit me like a ton of bricks. I have heard nothing but good things about these not only here but the reviews on The Tire Rack as well. So I went with the Revos in a 265/75/16. I'll post some pics tomorrow after I pick them up. After Saturday with the lift and new wheels and tires, it will be like having a new ZJ. What are some of your thoughts on the Revos?

revos are great.. I never have problem with them. They are really good on dry/wet pavement, ice and snow. It works great in the mud too (for AT tires standard).
20K miles so far and it just starting to show some little wear ( I think it can last me 30K more miles without any problem).

Ehh, I had GSA's too and replaced them with the Revo's. I can't even tell you how much better the ride and traction are with them. Not to mention they look bad ***! With the 12+ inches of snow that fell this weekend, I didn't have one problem with traction, and under breaking, the ABS didn't go off once. When driving in the snow with the GSA's, i would have to pull the ABS fuse out, otherwise, I wouldn't be stopping in time. Next chance you get, buy them, you won't be sorry!

I think on dry pavement and in mud/moderate off road situations the GSA's are awesome. I can think of numerous instances where if I were running stock tires like the guys around me I'd be stuck. My only complaint with the GSA's is the traction in the snow. They seem to get packed with snow and lose traction. They are still brand new and full of tread too. Oh well, I just want some new rubbers for the hell of it, I like trying new stuff.

Goodnight y'all!

Revos rock! And that's coming from someone who has been using BFG ATs exclusively for years and now AT/KOs too. Can't go wrong with any of them if you need an all terrain.

I'm jealous. I should have gone larger. I ended up going 245 70R16. Maybe 265s next time.

Kind regards,

What would 30x9.5x15 convert to in metric units?

Just curious, as I am seeing if I could squeak out a bittt more rubber then the 30x9.5's via metrics that wouldn't rub.

1 inch = 25.4 millimeters so multiply all those dimensions by 25.4

it's a 241 mm tire just shy of a 245

I was debating between BFG AT's and the Revo's.... I went with the BFG's... I really love them! But I'm sure if I had the revo's I would love them too...

Agreed...I just put some Revos on my '04 GC and they have been excellent...on-road (dry, snow, rain) and off-road. I couldn't be happier.

Nice job Buddha
I have always wanted those tires, but they were out of my price range. Yet still cheaper than the Michelin X-terrains.
