Which tires from Tire Rack would you buy?

I want the stock size tire and don't do any offroading.

I read a lot of people say they like the Bridgestone Revo's. The Michelin are great but kind of high priced. What about the Bridgestone Dueler? Yokohama
Geolandar A/T-S? Anyone ever use these?

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.

I live in the north east and have always been partial to BFG tires. I have run the AT KO's on several trucks. Like other tires you mentioned they are pricey, but the offer a good compromise between on road ride and off road ability. What I do know is they wear like iron. Keep them rotated and properly inflated and they will treat you right. Have you looked at the BFG rugged trails? Nissan offers them as original equipment on some trim levels.

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).

Nice tires and quiet ride. Haven't had snow yet this year, but work good in heavy rain.

After doing alot of research, I bought a set of Revos. They ride so much better than the original Goodyears that came on it.

I'm starting to lean towards the Revo's myself.....I just know i'm ready to get the GY's off there (one already shows overinflation balding although I KNOW they are always 35psi). Those are crap tires at 30K miles

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.

I went with the Revo's based on positive experiences with Bridgestone in the past.

I haven't heard of the Alenza's before. When I was looking to purchase tires, I saw good reviews on the Revo's on tirerack.com, and on this site.

Simple. For the reason you quoted that you seem to be questioning....

The longer a tire lasts, or is warranted, typically means that it is a stiffer, harder compound tire. That also means it does not "grip" as well as a softer compound tire. It will not corner as well, provide the same level of traction in all weather conditions either. Basically, the only plus is that it will last longer....

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? I thought michelin's were the best. So the Revo would be better then Michelin?

Both tires should act and last about the same. There are many possible differences, but overall, they should be very similar.

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.

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.

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. :D

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.

And as an addition, for Christ's sake (or someone else's if that offends you) DON'T BUY THE RAGGED TRAILS BECAUSE THEY SUCK.

A quick search here, or on various other forums will show that these get terrible ratings across the board. Utter garbage.

There seems to be a lot of support for the Revos, I wanted Light OffRoad capability, so I went with Terras, but you can't seem to get those at TireRack.
