Getting Time for Tires

Baby needs a new pair of shoes!

I currently have the Firestone Transforce A/Ts and I like them fairly well. I just wanted to get your input on what has worked for you. I am driving mostly highway, but need some bite for the field every now and then.

Thoughts?

I know some guys have reservations about interco but they have a new tire called the Vortrac....its an all terrain not a mud, but it has a nice aggressive look, thick sidewalls, E rated, its very quiet and smooth on the road, and it wear extrememly well.....I highly recommend....I am running them on the Bronco and I am extrememly happy with them both on and offroad

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned

Check out Yokohama Geolander AT-s tires. I have some friends with the on their trucks and love them. I was trying to get a set but they were back ordered for 2 months when i needed them so I went with Toyo MT's. The geolandars have Good wear and AT tread, plus you can get them in E rated. Follow the link below and read the reviews and see the pics.

If you like what you have and you think they are priced fairly why would you experiment? If it ain't broke don't fix it.
