New tires

16 posts in this topic

I need new tires for my Chev 2500 HD and I'm thinking of the Yokahama Geolander. Has anyone tried these and what do you think of them and why? HTB

If you Google Tire Rack they will give you comparisions on tires for your vehicle or by size or make. Ratings and feed back. I found it helpfull when I needed tires.

Are you looking at the AT tire?

Previous discussions have brought up three popular choices in an AT tire in no particular order:

BG Goodrich AT

Yokohama Geolander

Bridgestone Dueler Revos

I went with the Revo's on my 4-Runner, too new to give any good feedback other than they made my wallet much lighter blush.gif

In addition to those, take a look at Michelin LTX M/S. Very good all around tire that wears like iron.

I have a 98 F-150 that I've used with a couple tires mentioned in this thread. 2 sets ago I had Yoko Geolander A/T. They were a pretty nice tire. Not too spendy, and good enough for the limited off-road they saw. They also were pleasant on the highways. Only bummer is they wore extremely quick. I only got about 32k out of them and they are rated for 40k.

I am currently running Bridgestone Dueler Revo AT's and they are definately a superior tire to the Geolander. They are better off-road, slightly noisier highway, and have lasted over 55k against a 50k rating. They will need to be replaced within the next 1500-2000 miles and more than likely I am going to get another set.

Hope that helps some.

Are you sticking with 10 ply tires? They are a different beast than those for a half ton and I don't think same brands that are good in the regular tire are necessarily good in the ten ply.

I have Bridgestone Rugged Trail TA on my Dodge 2500 and they have approx 55,000 miles shocked.gif Tires are 1/2 worn. They are not an aggressive thread by any mean but they are great in rain, quiet, and.... they last forever.

BTW I never rotate my tires and I had alignment when I bought the truck (75,000 miles ago this spring).

I also have another CTD 2500 with Toyo Open Road AT and they seem pretty good, definitely not as good as the BFG.

I had Michelin on another truck and they were the noisiest tire I ever had..... and I used to be a Michelin enthusiast.

I don't have any experience with the tires you are asking about, but I am on my 2nd set of the BF Goodrich All Terrain TA KO 10 ply tires. I got about 60000 miles off my first set before they started cupping. I now have about 8,000 on my 2nd set, and I am still happy with them. I know, this is not exactly what you were asking for, but just another opinion to think about.-Later!

If you have a duramax in it you need to run 10 plys because of weight of the motor. They also will last much longer for you on a HD truck they will work great. I have had great luck with BF goodrich AT and have gotten 50,000 out of the ones I have had on my truck. Now I has some Coopers that are awesome for traction but they haven't worn for jack. I think I will look to Toyo Open country on my next set next year. All though the BFs are great their price is getting pretty crazy. I have heard good things of the geolanders though on GM heavy duties.

I don't drive a 3/4 ton but someone is going to seriously have to pay me some money to put something other than BFG All-Terrain T/A KOs on my 1/2 ton. 100,000 miles on my previous set. No flats until the day I put my new ones on.

Another vote for the BF Goodrich AT's. I'm at 60,000 right now and they are looking like they will do another 30,000 for sure. Never a flat.

BF's won't get a 100k on a heavy duty esecially with a diesel grin.gif. At least that is my experience but 50,000k is pretty good.

I have a pop-up camper (1,000 lbs)on the truck most of the summer, and haul around an 18' lund. The BF AT's have done well for me.

might not be comparable, but my father used the BF All terrain T/A on his S-10 and got 120K on first set, and somewhere arround 100K on the second set. He put cheaper tires on now because he thought it wasn't worth it if he didn't know if the truck would last out another set. I think he has around 280K on it and it is only a 98.

I am running a pair of BFG AT's (315/70/17) on my 03' Dodge 2500 Diesel. I have put 22k on them while they have been on this truck, and had put 30k on them on my 03' Dodge 1500 before I traded it in for the diesel annd had them swap the tires to the new truck. I still have a lot of tread left and expect to get at least another 10-20k out of them, probably more!! I will know for sure by next fall!

I ordered a set of tires last year over the internet from California, here in 4 days. If you can find someone to balance and mount them you can save some $$$$. It was free shipping over a certain amount. They might or might not have what you are looking for. Might get edited but it was at onlinetires.com

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.

      Thanks guys for the informative replies. Can you also comment on the walleye limits?

      Hey Barefoot on the main lake or current areas?

      a tournament-record 10-pound, 2-ounce beauty was big fish and A record 110 boats fished this year’s tourney, held out of the marina at Fortune Bay Resort Casino. 492 walleye, another tournament record, were weighed and released at this catch-and-release event.

      My daughter is shooting my 12 gauge 870 Wingmaster really good. Im looking for a nice looking, nice shooting and dependable pump shotgun for her at a decent price. I'm not liking the newer 870 Wingmasters as much as I did when I bought mine 30 years ago. I recently saw some Weatherby PA08s. Very nice looking gun which rival the looks of old Wingmasters with walnut stock, deep checkering, fairly light for $350 new. Reviews I see from 2011-2014 have me concerned a bit about hard trigger pull and shells sometimes not ejecting. Anyone have any experience or knowledge about these Weatherby pumps? If there were issues, you would think Weatherby would have fixed them by now.

      I did this a while back.  If you have basic carpentry skills you can do it for under $200. Here's what I did.   Get 2x8 treated board.  Cut to length of back bench.  Attach a swivel seat to board then attach board to back bench using screws and glue.   Buy two sheets of 4x8 3/4" sheeting that's rated for exterior and a gallon of deck stain.  Stain said sheets.  Cut out one for floor and one for casting deck up front (i used the front bench with a little bracing in between).  Use left over 2x8 for bracing casting deck.  You will also need one 2x4 treated board for bracing of the floor.  Install casting seat up front.  Looks good and is cheap and easy.  I used cedar stain and bought cedar colored treated lumber.  If I remember correctly I cut out the middle bench.   Only problem was it added a lot of weight so had to upgrade to 15 horse.  Sold it  a couple of years later for a $100 profit.  Just an idea.  
    • Walleye #1
        Walleyes on Leech Lake found themselves spread out but actively feeding on shiners.  A Jig and shiner or a plastic and lindy rigs with shiners and leeches were the go to presentations during the course of the week.  Somedays walleyes were wanting it dragged along which is where lindy rigs worked well and other days snapping or twitching a jig and minnow was the ticket.  So being diverse in your presentations, changing up colors and cadences, and getting away from the crowds is the ticket.     West End - Fish were found on West Goose Flats, Star Point, Grand Vu Flats, Duck Point, Pine Point, Stoney, and on some of the breaklines in Traders Bay.  Depending on the day depths changed, but it seemed the best bite was in 8-14 feet of water.  Find the shiners and you found walleyes closeby!     East End/Main Lake - Main Lake Rocks are still producing a large quantity of fish in the 20-26” protected slot, with some keepers mixed in.  Annex, Submarine, Five Mile, Pelican Island, and Rogers Point all had decent bites. Fish were typically found in that 8-12ft range on this part of the lake and finding areas with sand and boulders was the key.  Portage Bay also reported a good bite up near Federal Dam.  Look for emergent cabbage in Portage, especially on those bright and sunny days where those walleyes will look to find cover.  Pitching a jig and minnow or jig and plastic for these Leech Lake Walleyes in the cabbage is fun way to catch them.     Jumbo Perch are also showing up with the walleyes, but often times will be shallower.  Found some of our best perch bites in 6-10ft of water, with some really nice jumbos mixed in.     Jason Freed Leisure Outdoor Adventures Fishing Guide Service

       Any boat restorers here in the twin cities area?  Looking to get some information and possibly a quote on a 12 foot aluminum boat. Would like benches re-done with carpeting, and possible floor work. Thanks in advance, I appreciate it!
    • HugeHogChaser
      Good evening,   i recently inherited a 12 foot aluminum boat, and I would like to re-do the interior. (Add carpet to the benches, possibly add marine grade plywood to the floor and carpet the floor as well.)   does anybody have any experience doing this, or recommend anybody that is good with this type of thing?    Trying to figure out if it's worth it to pay someone to do it, or try and figure out how to do it myself with no experience.    Anyways, thanks in advance!
