anything but firestone cause I heard they are prone to go flat.
I like BF G's or cooper's i can't stand goodyear i think they are to overpriced for the amount of use you get outta them plus i think they wear to fast
I wish this one was multi-choice.
I picked "other" because there's two brands I like, and one isn't listed. General and Kumho.
I had a set of generals on my buick and liked them good tire for the price and the BFG allterrains can't beat them for wear and capability in my opinion
Same here about GoodYear. Not all that great of a tire, and expensive. Especially in the truck tires.
all depends on what they are going onto. drag, kinda favor BFG. mudding, kinda like the meats on the nittos but also have found some procomps that look promising. bought coopers for the wifeys ride and seem to be wearing very well.
I had Good Year on the Yota Rolla I drove them to smooth bald at 36,000 and they could have stood to be replaced at 25,000. Fund tight, I squeezed the 36,000. I ended up finding 70,000 mile Uniroyals for it, for $50 each that were normally $80 each but they were clearanced at Wally World of all places. Tires Plus and Discout Tires couldn't get close to the deal, and I normally would not buy Uniroyals either, but I had to get what I could affored at the time. I must say, I am really impressed so far. I have 15,000 on them now, Have rotated them twice, nice riding, even better than the Good Years, and they do not even seem to have wore at all. I am thinking I may really get 70,000 out of them. I did not like the Tspec Uniroyals on my early 90's Chevy trucks.
I have 1 set of goodyear wranglers that have 55000 on them and they are still full of tread but weathercracked all to pieces.(not driven on the road anymore). I bought a set of 10 ply radial buckshot mudders for my 1 ton 4x4 and I don't think you can wear those out(maxxis brand)
The ex and I had a set of Good Year Eagles on Pontiac GT. They were great in treadwear, but as you say semo, they sidewalls were very badly cracked. I am talking 1/16 to 1/8 in wide cracks the entire length of the sidewall from the tread to the bead. These were also Tspec tires from the car being new, and only 2 years old with 22,000 miles on them. Good Year offered us a 30% off if we would buy another set of GY Eagles. I argued with them till I finally told them to put the tires up their #$& sideways !!! Went to Pep Boys, bought their off name brand, I am wanting to say Futura, in a full set of 4, and those did wonderfully, suprisingly well. Especially for the money. They were half the price of the GY Eagles.
