TireCrazy



It seems that it is time for new tires again.  Our sandpaper highway 118 has taken its' toll on my last set.  I got 2 1/2 years and 35,000 miles out of my Yokohama Geolanders.  Giving Hankook DynaPro ATM a try for the next round.  Found a good deal with free shipping plus a $50 rebate online...mounting and balancing will cost me another $130 down south.  Saving over $150 from what the Yokos cost me last time.  Let's hope cheaper is "just as good".  81,96,73,0,B

About 5 years ago I noticed Enterprise Rent-a had Hankook Tires on their cars. So I figured, good enough for them, good enough for me.

always got 50K or better out of Michelins (though pricey) on Tundra and E-250 but sounds like 118 eats tires...so as they say "your mileage may vary"!

I was told that good tires (with correct air pressure, etc. and good driver) are more important than four wheel drive (with bad tires).

Oops. I get my tires and air (balance, etc.) checked regularly.

Nothing beats 10 ply Michelins for driving on Terlingua Ranch roads. Tested on a Ford Super Duty F-250 diesel 4x4 and a Ford F-150 Eco Boost 4x4. Not the most economical tire - but more flat proof than any other tires - I have run on Terlingua Ranch roads.

I have to agree with Ronald. We've been running Michelins for 20 yrs now. On the way to Big Bend, on TR roads and home. We put about 30,000 miles on our truck each year. With the Michelins we get 70,000-90,000 miles between changing.
