I bought the Deuler Alenza's about a month ago, great tire for highway use. Their significantly better on wet roads then the Goodyear SRA's, ride is about the same.
Sure. I am running 275/65/18 Goodyear Silent Armor on the wife's Armada. I think if you look at on of the tire calculators, you may run a little slower than indicated speed (running 64mph while showing 65 on the speedo).jrein8383 said:I looked for the BF Rugged Trail T/A and the only size I see is 275/65R18? I know the standard equipment is 265/70R18. WOuld those fit?
Simple. For the reason you quoted that you seem to be questioning....jrein8383 said:If I don't do any offroading are the Revo's still better then the Alenza's? The Alenza's have a longer warranty of 65K and better UTQG of 700AB vs. 50K and 500AB for the Revo's. Just wondering why everone likes the Revo's over the Alenza's.
Both tires should act and last about the same. There are many possible differences, but overall, they should be very similar.jrein8383 said:Does that mean the michelin tires that have the same specs of 65K warranty and 700AB UTQG would have the same problems of the Alenza's?
Some people like Goodyear (overpriced), Cooper (inexpensive, utilitarian), BFG (off-roading), Jetson (cheap as dirt but also as crappy), etc... for various reasons. All people have their opinions.jrein8383 said:\ I thought michelin's were the best.
The Revo will handle better, corner better, provide better wet/snow traction, and wear out faster. "Better than the Michelin" is a matter of which of the above are important to you and the way you intend to use the vehicle.jrein8383 said:So the Revo would be better then Michelin?
My thoughts exactly. That extra few thousand miles you get out of your tires will seem very expensive if you have to sit in a hospital watching over an injured child because the tires didn't have enough grip when you really needed it.Blackbeauty said:Personally, I will sacrifice tire life for better handling and stability. I don't want a tire that will last 80,000 miles, but when it rains, you can't stop the vehicle! Once again, everyone has an opinion. That just happens to be mine.
