Cool which tires for my obs

Hey everyone, needing some new rubber for my 97 ext. cab long box 4x4. Looking at firestone destination mt's or Bridgestone dueler mt's. Leaning towards the firestones, mostly found great reviews but alot of mixed too. Some say they are just loud as can be and others say there pretty quiet for a mt..not much louder than a at. Would love to hear from some guys who have or have had these tires. Noise isnt that big of a deal but I like to hear the ol 7.3 strokin...

Thanks,

John

Thats pretty cheap, im pricing 285 75r 16's so im not real familiar with prices for smaller sizes. I think the firestones look bbetter than the bf's just me tho. I think the old school looking mt's fit the obs perfect

I usually stick with BFG or Yokohama, but I recently got a set of Cooper Discoverer ATs on mine. Very well on the wet, and quieter than BFG ATs. And great price at $180 for E rated.

I also just bought the cooper ATP's. Same good deal at Discount tire. I got the 265x75's. So far so good but only got abut 4,000 miles on them so far.

Here's a couple more. I believe they are 265s (mine's a 250).





They are feathering a little on the outer front edge due to the crappy front suspension, but I just keep rotating them.

They track and hold a load very well. Very happy with them.
