Re: Tires?

I have the ome hd lift as well. Stick with the 265's. I have 275's and I had to trim the front of the fender well in the front. As for tires, decision came down to the BFG's because I love the solid white lettering ans the goodyear silent amour's. IF you do a lot of road driving go goodyear. They are as described, silent. plus they look good.

just my 2 cents, but from what I understand the BFG's are close. I got mine from a tire shop that sold both and they said its nnto that big of a difference.

Re: Tires?

I love the goodyears. they are quiet and do great in snow. I had a set that I used on my suburban and I never had one complaint, sold them to "jayloop" and he loves them as well. I bought a set for the WK and even my wife loves them. Plus they weight less than the BFG's. They are quiet at interstate speed and wear very great. If anyone is interested, I will sale my current set as well. I will get them posted in the for sale forum.

Re: Tires?

I dont think the duratracs have been around long enough to find out if they last that long, but i highly doubt it.

BFG ATs can last very long if well taken care of or not long at all. it all depends on the vehicle they are on, the condition of that vehicle and the driving style. So many factors come in to play but they can last a long time.
