BFG All-Terrain T/A KO2

Any thoughts how the Rotiva AT compares to the Bridgestone Dueler Revo AT2?

Seems like the Revo has a very slightly more aggressive tread pattern and duel compound, but it sounds like Nokian has...

Tire rant

You know, I've been wondering if that was the case.

Wet weather performance is one of my major priorities.

Re: 255\70\18 tire choices with ql??

In that size I'd look at the Bridgestone Dueler Revo AT2, Goodgyear Duratrac.

I personally have used the Revos and have been very happy with them in wet and mild snow/slush. Some report the...

265/65R18 Duratracs

I don't know in 265, but a lot of people running 275/65-18 (32.1x11, 649 revs/mi) run a 255/70r18 (32.1x10.2, 649 revs/mi).

What you want is a tire that has the same revs/mi but is only 10" wide...

Re: Anyone running Pirelli Scorpion ATRs?

I haven't run the ATRs, but I did run the ATs on our WJ and I think they use the same rubber but the ATR just has a milder pattern.

I liked the ATs. The rubber compound was soft and grippy.

The Bridgestone Revo AT2 is a bit more aggressive, but still great on-road.

Stock size 18" Bridgestones or 255/60/18 Terra Grapplers???

I'm think I typically have gotten about 40k on the Revo ATs with various vehicles.

I really like them. The only other tires I've considered lately are the Duratechs.

I'm pretty sure it's shadows. When I parked today behind a big hedge they went on right as I pulled in.

Re: Jeep GC recall P14

No, Jeep actually did a recall.

While the parts delay sucks, my read of the recall notice didn't suggest there was any immediate peril.

YMMV.

My '14 Overland w/tech has the "auto" wipers feature. Occasionally it will wipe when cornering from a stop light. Any one see this before? Any ideas what is going on here?

275/65-18 is 32.1x11, so look at a 255/70r18 (32.1x10.2) for the spare.
