Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Goodyear Wrangler AT/S

I put these tires on my 2007 Silverado LTZ 4wd at 42,000 miles when the factory tires were feathering and wearing terrible. I have rotated every 10,000 miles and try to keep them inflated to 45psi.

I replaced OEM Firestone (40K miles) with the new Grabber HTS. The Chevrolet dealer was reluctant to even quote these tires and pushed Bridgestone. But based on reviews here and on CR, I insisted on the tire. I am happy to report that the Grabbers are outstanding! Very soft feel, quiet and great handling. General makes a great product and backs their tires...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

I replaced the original Goodyears (23,000 mi) with these, even though they were my second choice. The new Pilot Sports do not come in my size.
