Yet another tire question
 
I am looking at REVO 2's (18") to run year round. Anyone else doing this. I am sure that by now tires must be good enough to run all year and not be an "all season", as they just don't do it for me. Thanks. Yes I searched and researched just asking.

I think there's a couple folks using the Dueler A/T Revo 2s and they like them well enough.

I'm not sure what you mean by "be good enough to run all year and not be an 'all season'" because if a tire is designed to be run year round, it is by definition an all season tire. All season tires have improved greatly over the years, but they are still a compromise by comparison to dedicated summer and winter tires. Plenty good for the vast majority of buyers, but still a compromise.

I too am upstate and see Revo's often. I just traded my Latitude Tours for LTX M/S's for year round use. I'm sure you will be fine.

Tirerack AT survey ratings below, with the Kumho's as the new leader of the category.

IMO, these AT tires are great all-year and perhaps are better representatives of what the customer thinks SUV "all-season" should be.

I had kumhos on my murano. They were 80 bucks for 18 inch. I thought they were great

The Revo's are a great tire from the reviews I've read on tirerack, shouldn't have a problem running those year around.

P.S. I'm running Wrangler SilentArmor's year around. It's an A/T tire that is also snow rated. Very happy with them.
