    New Tire Questions

    Ok my Avalanche is going to need shoes before next towing season(The Wilderness A/Ts are getting a little threadbare). What I am looking for is a good highway tire(quiet), good wet traction, that still looks and works like its on 4wd when you need it.

    I looked around a bit and found these.

    I've had LTX M/Ss in that past and they have always worked well for me. Good wearability, good wet traction.

    I want to get the opinion of some of the other guys here on the forum.

    Go with the Michelins. Goodyears are terrible. Nittos aren't bad but not better then Michelins. Nitto focuses more on their High performace street tires. My buddy is a manager of a discount tire so he gives me the inside word on which tires he sees come in with the most problems. He said Michelins are by far the best tire you can put on your car is every aspect. Relibility, Treadwear, noise, traction and so on.

    I agree michs are the best tire....

    But their AT tires look like street tires. I think Darth said he wanted something that looked aggressive, but does not hum.

    Nitto has two different sectors... street racing... and off-road racing... they are great tires for both kinds.

    The Michelin A/Ts look aggressive enough fo me, after all I was thinking LTX M/Ss before and those look totally highway. If I could save a little with the Nittos I might lean toward them but with the Michelins I get 3 steel belts vs 2 on the Nittos. I can't say the Nitto recomendation was bad, its a very intriuging tire with pretty good reviews and is what I was looking for in a tire.

    They were a great tire when I had them. I will def. buy them again. Right now I only have 3k miles on my truck.

    I am trying to talk my dad into a set right now, but he is an old school good year guy.

    PM Pale Rider. He is also a big fan of them.

    I just got rid of a set of BF Goodrich Rugged Trail tires on my suburban. Ive always had Mich's, but the last set I had i got the BF's. They rode just as smooth, made as little of noise(probly less), and had very good wet traction. They also had a very aggressive looking tread to them.
