New tires

In the market for tires in no more than a month. Have been looking at firestone destination mt's. Really like how they look but a few people at local tire shops tell me mt's just dont last, and arnt the best in snow. They tell me about 30k lifespan. So im up in the air, would like to get the mt's but courser ct's seem to be a go to tire. Opinions are welcome, owners of the tires would be great but anyone chime in!


Thanks,

John

I have a set of Toyo open country 2s, in 285/75 16. i love them. they are a fairly aggressive AT that should last 50K and they came in an E rating. $828 shipped to my door.

ive also looked at the toyo and nitto's, wanting something a bit more aggressive than an at. Any cons to a mastercraft ct? I know lots of people who say there great but never had a set myself.

I'm looking at purchasing the Toyo OC MT or the Federal couragia MT. Both E rated and 10 ply.
I have nitto Terra grapplers now and I got approx 35k miles on them and they are pretty wore out

I am a fan of goodyears. They are expensive but I dont think you can beat their traction. I have one of their sister companies tires Kelly TSRs. Same compound, load range E but about $50 per tire cheaper

Looking for Blue 40-20-40 seats. PM me !!!!!!!
