I have the Dualer a/t's on my TJ and they are great in snow. 34k miles and 50% left thus far. Not sure how they differ from Alenza h/l tho. Ran them on a then new 86 Nissan p/u in the sand and did great also.

Thanks for the fb. The Revo's are very impressive and they do make a 235/70-16 if I changed rims. I'm not ruling anything out. The H/L Alenza is a short step down from those, at least in the Tire Racks opinion poles.

Hey everybody,
Just thought I'd share this with you. The Tires are from a subsidary of BFG. They are MEDALIST 245/70/16's,very soft compund and a very rounded shoulder. The rounded shoulder helps with the fenderwell clearance issues. I have a RR lift on it's way, but RR said all they are waiting for are the rear control arm bushings. They are coming from Daystar and unfortunatley are backordered due to the popularity of this lift kit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh well, this week is what is being estimated.

Thanks for confirming that fit! I had seen that info else where but wasn't sure if the lift helped with the clearance or not. I've edited the guide on post 76. Nice looking rig!

hummmmm. i thought they would look 'bigger'. my 215's look as big. maybe it's the white letters on mine that gives it the illusion of being 'bigger'.

now i'm wondering if it's worth the expense........

i had the firestone affinitys 215/60/17 when the yokohmas arrived i was shocked at how "BIG" they looked. they are a 29" tire the firestones are a
27" tire so to me there was a big difference. for me it was well worth the money.
