Question on truck tires

Recommended Posts

The Yeti

Fellow fisherman. I might be able to get a deal on some Coopers. Anyone have experience with these? I currently have the Baja's from FF on my truck, but they wore down very quickly. Any suggestions? I don't want to spend a fortune either. It's a full size 4x4 Chevy. Thanks for any replies.

Hey Yeti,
I've been running the Cooper Discovery AT on my suburban for about 60k now and they seem to have good wear life. I like the AT cause they're self cleaning and don't get clogged with mud or snow. But they will fling the mud and snow where esle.

My vote yes

I recommend the BFG long trail, but that's me. For the real scoop check out tires.com or the discount tire website, one of those two has honest costomer feedback for just about every tire made.

Na, dont get coopers, if you want the best get BRIDGESTONE DUELER A/T REVOS. I GOT THEM ON MY TRUCK AND THEY BLOW EVERYTHING AWAY.

Those Revo's are good I run them on my Jeep. But they are a little spendy, worth every penny though. As for the Cooper vs. Revo's that's a tough one. The biggest factor I see is the Revo's have more squared shoulders which does make a biggest imprint and more traction. Plus the squared shoulder does look nicer.

Either one should get you to and from most places

I'm with Joe Harty on the BFG's. My opinion on tires is if you buy cheap, you buy twice!

I've been using BFG All-Terrain T/A KO for the last 7 or 8 years now. Yes, they are a little aggressive but what what boat landing, gravel road, mud trail, frozen lake, or snow covered road couldn't use a little extra traction. Bridgestone Duelers would be my second choice but I've always gone for the BFGs.

I use to have Duelers, but the seem to wear faster then the Toyo Open Country that I have on now. The nice thing about the Toyo is quite ride with the aggressive look. Also the tread is cut all the way down, unlike duelers which is about half way. As far is pricing I think I paid right around $500 for the set. I know Costco sells duelers for a good price though. Which I might buy next time to save a little bread.

I have owned several sets of BFG's on several differant trucks. I love 'em. I had a set of KO's last 70,000 miles and still had tread on 'em when I sold the truck. Bridgestone Deulers would be my second choice, because they are less expensive than BFG's. I would stay away from any Goodyears though, they are nothing but problems.

I would agree that the BFG are awesome. I have a set on my 99 chevy 3/4 ton and love them. If you are looking for even more traction go with Wrangler Mt/R's. They are the best mud and snow tire I have ever seen.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck
    • Hoey
      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
    • ozzie
      Sounds good!  I won't be up this weekend but in the future I will look for ya!  I am in a couple different boats but a Lund Tyee is what I would be in most often with a 200 merc on the back.
    • Hoey
      Not to mention that some of these boats had doubles on the biggies, so they could select the heaviest or caught another biggie after tagging one.  Our boat did not get a biggie.  We had over 24 slots for the day, our biggest was 25".

      Women can hike to spectacular views of autumn colors and Lake Superior on the horizon during a three-day fall workshop that teaches a variety of outdoor skills through the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  Getting to that view includes 330 feet of elevation gain on the Superior Hiking Trail – the kind of physical and mental challenge known well to Jo Swanson, trail development director for the Superior Hiking Trail Association and the keynote speaker for the fall workshop. “One of my themes is empowerment – learning to overcome fears of adventuring in the outdoors,” Swanson said. “We live in a culture of fear and people react strongly when women go on outdoors adventures, especially when they go alone. The truth is that with planning and preparation, the outdoors can be a very safe place.” The fall workshop is Friday, Sept. 14, through Sunday, Sept. 16, in a new location this year at Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center near Finland, Minn. Attendees will hear from Swanson and Minnesota state park naturalists. Session topics include Ojibwe heritage, Voyageurs, archery, canoeing, and the animals, plants and geology of the North Woods. Linda Bylander, coordinator of the Becoming an Outdoors Woman program, said that along with the new location, the workshop offers a new selection of classes this year. “Women who attend the fall workshop gain a whole range of experiences in a supportive environment,” Bylander said. “We chose dates when the fall colors should provide a beautiful backdrop. The workshop is designed for women ages 18 and up but girls ages 14 to 17 are welcome to attend with parents or guardians. Visit mndnr.gov/bow for more information and to register.

      Quite a strong bite for the Streiffs tourney. I think there were 20 or so over 28", with the biggest weighing 10 3/4. Last year I think there were five overs. The boats were spread all over the lake. Many were fishing the mud, a few were quite shallow and some on the rocks. Most guys spoke of slot fish like crazy......but roughly 1 out of 6 boats having a 28" plus is crazy!! The stage got a bit crowded when the big fish catchers got up there for a picture.

      They can go on opener like everyone else does instead of pre-emptively scaring the local ducks out of the area.

      Congratulations!.  I am sure it's a bittersweet time for you.  All the best!
