New tires

Question

hitthebricks

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

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air. 
    • toddrun
      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.
    • kfk
      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy! 
    • delcecchi
      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
