Tire Recommendations

It snowed today, and I realized just how bad I need new tires. I am looking into these two options:

http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/fin...10100&sw=false

I've read good things about these tires, but all the bad ones are that they don't last, even though they are rated 600 on treadwear.

http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/fin...10100&sw=false

I've read nothing but good things about these. Just not sure if they are worth the difference in price over the Kumho's.

I'm definitely open to any other suggestions that are in this price range. I have not been able to find pricing on Firestone Destinations (LE or AT). Not sure how much they run, but would definitely be interested if they are in the same range.

Other than these tires, all I can find in the price range are the Bridgestone Dueler H/T 684's, which get horrible reviews. There are also BF Goodrich Long Trail T/A Tour and the General Grabber HTS for a little more than the Yoko's. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. I am going to try to set something up tomorrow, so that I can get them replaced early next week.

I have looked there. The reviews there and on discounttire.com are where I have gotten most of my information, and why I am leaning towards the two tires I posted.

I have the Grabber HTS. I like tham alot. On for almost 25K now with no issues at all. 2nd winter with them and the truck still goes like a champ in the snow.

A friend has the Geolanders and said he liked them at first, but now they are very noisy. Great in snow, just noisy on dry pavement in his opinion. He has had his for about 20K now as well.

Hope that helps. Tire opions will drive you crazy, I know they did me when I was looking

Chris

oh, okay....thought you where still looking for other options. I don't know if you noticed by it also shows if they are running and manufacture rebates and such on any tires; helped me shop around when I called local shops. That's pretty much solidified me getting Dueler Revo's the other year...called my local small town shop and they got me setup and got my rebate a few weeks later.

This is my 3rd winter on them and will be the last as they are toward the end of their life. Still going pretty strong and getting me around in the white stuff. Noticable increase in road noise the longer I've had them.

I'm running the Firestone A/T's 245/65 17 on my 02. I got them from a local dealer for $138.00 each fitted, balanced aligned with tax. This is my second winter with them and I love them.

I am partial to Yokohama and they have never done me wrong. I put them on my father's ascender about a month ago and he loves them. I have heard the same about the Kuhmo's but i don't like them anyways. my

I found this morning that firestone has buy 3 get one free on the destinations. I'm sitting at firestone now getting the destination le's installed. They came out a little more than the kumho's but cheaper than the yoko's.

Really? I just ordered a set of Bridgestone Revo's for mine, chose them over the Destinations, but had no idea there was a buy 3 get 1 free promo. Is it publicized anywhere?

*edit* Nevermind, I found the ad. They cant get the Revo's for me since its discontinued (local shop could still order though) and the Destination AT price was only $30 cheaper than the local shop (firestone shop is 1 hour drive away, fuel cost would have eaten up the difference).
