I ran them on my '94 explorer a few years back. I believe I had over 70k on them before I changed tires. They wore really well until my alignment went out and they didn't hold up past 500 miles after that. Only issue I had with them was even though they were an A/T tire, they weren't the greatest in any mud. I'm not talking deep mud just in and out of our deer hunting property they would spin alot.

I sold the explorer last year and now have an f250. I'm currently running 33" Dunlop Fierce Attitude tires. Man are they nice! Really aggressive tires with deep lugs and very little road noise. Picked a set of 4 up from a local tire shop for right at $800 and that included road haz. lifetime rotation & balance, and the tires carry a 60k mile warranty.

Check out tirerack.com. Read the reviews & match they're prices to your local dealers. Sometimes they'll match it. A bunch of us are running Firestone destination AT's with good results. Great tire.

Talking Tires

With tires, I learned to buy familiar brands preferably made in USA. Firestone, Goodyear, Dunlop are all great tires. Kinda get what you pay for with tires. Just my opinion.

Very happy with mine so far. Much better traction than the Firestones that came on my truck. Got mine at Tire Discounters, came with a 40,000 mile treadwear warranty. I have never have a load range E tire with that before.

We just put a new set of them on a trailblazer....they ride well down the road and look real aggressive! Looks like it will do the purpose unless you're wanting to use them for strictly mudding! lol. I think you'll be fine with them!

Thanks. Looks like I need to order them because my local shops don't carry them. I have a f350 dually that I use to tow a fifth wheel.
