The Brdigestone REVO/2 have always been my tire of choice, but pretty spendy now. I have been doing a decent amount of research lately and have narrowed my options down a bit.
Falken Rocky Mountain ATS/WildPeack A/T (basically the same tire), Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac, Yokohama Geolander ATS.
On the more $$$ side, You can't go
wrong with Wrangler MT/R Kevlar.
The only problem with the GYW MT/R is that it only comes in my size of 245/75R16 in load range E now would that be a problem? This is going on a Grand Cherokee 00 Laredo. How rough would this ride?
Don't overlook the Hankook ATM or Kelly Safari TSR!
How well does the Hankook ATM preform on terms of off road use (light to mild off road including light mudding) to on road use how quiet it is and how good it preforms in snow, ice and slush and most of the time moderate to heavy rain at times. (For the north east of USA).
The Kelly Safari TSR I really like but I also run into the same problem as with the GYW MT/R's that the only size that I would like/need is 245/75R16 is that it comes only in load range E. So my concern in the earlier post is still alive and kicking. Does anyone have the Kelly Safari TSR's? I'm wondering how well it preforms on and off road and snow so if anyone has any input to the Kelly Safari TSR's that would be welcome and helpful.
There are lots of very good tires out there. But you said for the money, which qualifies things. With that considered, I think you would be hard-pressed to outdo the Firestone Destination AT. $120 a tire in that size on Tire Rack. I think it prices our cheaper at the Firestone stores once you consider shipping.
The Yokohama are affordable too, as are the General Grabber AT2. Those three seem to be very well regarded for the money.
The basic Hankook and Kumho look good too, though I have seen less longer/higher mileage reviews on those.
How well does the Firestone Destination AT performs on and off road I have a friend that told me getting them for off road use is a mistake and I cant say I don't believe him because it seems more like a street tire more than anything. How well does it preform in snow, ice and rain? Shipping is not a problem here in Connecticut because there is actually a warehouse here for tirerack.com
The Yokohama is still subjected to the same performance areas also Ice, Snow, Rain, Slush as goes with the "basic" Hankook and "basic" Kumho please elaborate on which tires you speak of.
I've looked that the General Grabber AT 2's and I like them very much as they come in all 3 of my stock sizes which are
Is that just a good site? Seems like brand name tires just with different names how good is the quality of their tires?
Love my Duratracs.
I almost went with the Hankook ATM, it's supposed to be an excellent tire, and has a good price, but I decided I wanted something more agressive looking, so I went with the Duras.
I'm 100% happy with my choice, I'd buy them again.
Im leaning toward the Duratrac's because they are a hybrid tire from what i've been reading and thats what im after. How far have you taken your Duratracs? Like what are the limits of them like what can and cant they do? I'd get them in my stock size if it were not load range E which I'm starting to believe is not bad to run on a stock GC I may be the guinea pig to try to use load range E on a stock GC to see how it runs.
In my opening post of the thread I don't I mentioned what I wanted my tires to have and one of which was to have it bear the snowflake mountain symbol.
