Initial Review, 70,000 Miles on Tires
February 16, 2013

I am amazed at the mileage I got out of the last set of Revo 2s. 70,000 miles on a 3/4 ton 4wd diesel pickup. To all the people that have wear/handling or road noise issues with this tire, I say; correct tire pressure is critical, I check it once a month (at least). I run 60psi all the way around on my unloaded pickup, more when loaded or towing. I just got my new set of Revos and the tire store filled them to 60psi in the front and 80psi in the back, WAY to much for a unloaded 3/4 ton pickup, it was a harsh ride and didn't handle right. I dropped the rear down to 60psi and it's perfect. Keep them rotated (6000 miles, everytime I change oil) and balanced, looking to get another 70,000 out of this new set!

Use these tires on our shop plow truck. Truck gets light summer use around town and used to move travel amd boat trailers around the property. These tires have outperformed any tires we have ever used before. Truck is used to plow several properties. One of these has a 800ft 30+deg incline. No spin!!! tread cleans well. Would definitly buy again.

 

Great Chevrolet Silverado Tires

Friday, April 26, 2013 by Steve Huffman

"Like a Rock." Chevy's full-size pickup keeps on trucking. The truck has evolved through the years, but one thing remains the same: dependability. Loyal owners hold on to their truck for many years, even through multiple sets of tires. Is it time to look for new tires for your Silverado?

If you're in the market for a new set, It's hard to go wrong with Michelin. That's why the Michelin LTX M/S2 is my favorite Highway All-Season tire for the Silverado. Besides its excellent ride qualities, including low noise and a comfortable ride, the LTX M/S2 has great all-season traction. The tire is also offered with a dependable 70,000-mile treadlife warranty.

Are you looking for a more aggressive tire? Take a look at the On-/Off-Road All-Terrain Firestone Destination A/T. This tire has been the top-rated option in the category for many years. The Destination A/T looks good while providing great off-road traction. It is tied or at the top of several performance ratings in the category, including:

  • Hydroplaning resistance
  • Wet traction
  • Cornering stability
  • Dry traction
  • Steering response
  • Ride comfort
  • Noise comfort

One of the best value options for your Silverado is the Yokohama Geolandar H/T-S G051. It provides a combination of comfort, handling and year-round traction, even in light snow. With over 28 million miles reported, the tire continues to stay in the the top ten of our Tire Survey Results.

Great tires so far. Best off road traction tire I have used and my last 2 mud tires were BF goodrich M/t and Maxxis mudders. The difference is very pronounced and the tires are also very affordable. I can go up a pretty steep, rocky, rutted wet hill in 2wd (rear locker) that it took 4x4 with the Maxxis. Only about 5,000 miles but I rated them a 10 on wear cause they still look new. Maybe there are better off road tires made. I haven't found any, but for 99% of folks out there the combination of performance and price can't be beat. I'm 100% satisfied with the tires and Tire Rack.

Bought the BF Goodrich Radial T/A tire for my GMC Sierra 1500 2WD standard cab stepside pickup as a replacement for Goodyear Eagle GT tires that I religiously ran on for many years (only to learn that Goodyear stopped making that tire in a 15" when it came time to replace them.) I wanted the White Letter tire and as many of you are finding out, 15" RWL this is becoming a dying breed.

This was the first set of BF Goodrich's I have ever owned and I was pleasantly surprised how much better and smoother they ride vs the Goodyears. Dry pavement driving is great, and wet pavement is good and acceptable. I typically tone it down in wet weather just because you can't expect a light truck to handle like a car due to the light rear end.

The raised white lettering is not quite as big as what Goodyear does and the BF Goodrich positioning of the letters are closer to the rim, vs Goodyear, which positions the lettering closer towards the treads. Not really a big deal to some, but if you have attention to detail like I do, its worth noting the appearance difference. Also as a notation, the tire shop filled my BF Goodrich tires with Nitrogen instead of air.

After having owned these tires for over 6 months, I wished I had switched to them earlier based on their ride and appearance. Unless something unforeseen happens, I would be likely to repurchase and recommend to a friend

Bought these to replace my all seasons for winter--we had 2 huge storms and these were awesome--my focus was a whole new vehicle--I found myself going where 4WD pickups with the wrong tires were getting stuck. And the best part--utterly comfortable on dry roads--though a could tell a negative difference once temps were above 45 .
For a winter tire overall excellent!

We live in Denver and spend most weekends in the mountains. I've had snow tires on all my vehicles. Very happy with this tire. Yes, they are a little softer than stock all season which you notice driving "quickly", but the average person will not sense a difference in cornering, etc. In the snow, fantastic. Just yesterday, we drove over Loveland pass (sheet of ice covered in snow) and the car was rock solid. (Escalade, Dodge Pickup) were spinning their tires while the Sienna just cruised. Going downhill is where you really notice a difference...impressive stopping grip. All in all, can't imagine not having Blizzaks.

Deep snow In 4WD mode: Good traction for take off, cornering and braking are not as good as take off. To be fair braking and cornering are far better than the other traffic on the road in deep snow, it's easy to accelerate past other traffic and to stop and turn. It's just the traction afforded during take off doesn't match the cornering and stopping (probably the 4WD engaged vs 2WD mode). I found my self sliding off the road in deep snow when traveling much faster than traffic. If I slowed to slightly faster than the average traffic I didn't slide in corners and had no braking lockups at all.
Wet conditions 2WD: No hydroplaning through the life of the tread, good braking and cornering in the wet, take off will spin the tires pretty easily but it's a pickup truck so that's expected.
Dry conditions: Good traction for take off, good braking and cornering. In the dry it's a very good tire. Under emergency braking to the point of activating the antilock system the tires tracked straight with no extra input needed maintain directional control. To be fair stability control in the Tundra may have played a part but, in the particular instance a lady pulled out of a gas station in front of me and the guy in the lane next to me. We were both a 40 mph and slammed on the brakes as we fully expected to hit her. She froze when she realized a truck and car were coming at her and that she was about to be hit. We both stopped about 3 to 8 inches from hitting her. The Tundra and Bridgestones didn't slide or slew and no one was hurt. I heard the tires from my truck and the car next to me skidding as the antilocks pulsed on both vehicles.
Ride comfort is very good, steering response very good, tire noise is good but sometimes on concrete the noise is a little louder than asphalt. Tire wear has be good 50,000 miles and there is still some left before the wear bars. Now that they are near the wear bars there is some hint of hydroplaning but they are all but worn out. Light Offroad good

This tire is just being used on the rear of a 2 wheel drive Colorado. The original tires that were on this truck when I purchased it from the dealership were Hancooks. They must have been the cheapest tires that they could find, because I could not even get a regular start from a redlight without breaking traction in the rain. On the other hand, these Firestone Winterforce UV tires give the best traction that I have ever had with this truck. I have owned many 4X4 trucks and these tires make my 2 wheel, drive just like it was a 4X4. I thought that I was pushing my luck here in Saint Louis trying to get by another winter without snow tires and I'm glad that I did buy them this year. The first storm we had, was a combination of snow, sleet and freezing rain. Most other cars were getting stuck on the Interstate on the steep hills, but not me and my 2 wheel drive pick-up. Stop thinking about getting them and just buy them ASAP!

Excellent street-able mud tire, good wear if you keep them rotated and monitor pressure. They cut through deep snow like they are heated. Good self-cleaning characteristics in deep mud, like most other tires, they cake up in deep/wet heavy clay.

Note regarding other reviews: Ignore idiots that can't spell, type in all CAPS and put "C" load range tires on 3/4 & 1 ton pickups. Consider the source.

I've had multiple sets of BFG M/T on vehicles and they've never let me down. If you get stuck with these you either don't know how to drive, or were doing something stupid. If you're experiencing poor wear (and are marginally smart enough to run appropriate pressure and rotate frequently), your junk vehicle probably needs suspension work. If you like Chevy's and Goodyear M/Ts... well, I can't help you, cause you can't fix stupid.

Not a bad tire, especially for the price. More noise than I expected on the highway, but good traction in wet weather & at high speeds. I realize these are not snow tires but was quite disappointed in the lack of snow traction and felt in danger many times while on ice. I would have been screwed if not for 4WD. Would probably perform well on a SUV and during summer months, but would not buy for year-round driving.

This is a great winter tire in all conditions. A week after installing I was caught in a serious lake effect storm that left 4wd pickups in ditches. We just kept moving. These tires provide a strong sense of security and control. Have found only one downside - these tires have so much traction that you can become overconfident - they can be made to slide. They work exceptionally well on ice, but cannot overcome the laws of physics completely. Was originally a little concerned about squirm mentioned by some and thought about the Michelins, but have experienced nothing but secure handling in our Odyssey, including on dry interstates. We had Blizzaks before but these are the best yet.

These tires are great i have 55,000 miles on them and still have some tread left. I will be buying these tires again. I have gone from mud to 4 feet of snow in these and they have performed perfectly. If you own a 1/2 ton pickup like I do remember that these are commercial grade tires and ride like that. When you hit a hole you know it. I keep mine inflated to 60 psi because when they were at 80 psi the ride was pretty rough. If you want tires that will last and take you through almost anything buy these tires.

I've had two sets of these tires on my 2WD Tundra and I am not pleased with their wet traction nor their snow/ice traction. Back tires spin from dead stops when raining and I have fish tailed on multiple occasions with light snow on the ground. Thankfully the front tires kept their grip in these situations. I guess this can be expected from a pickup truck with light back end, but I have to assume some of it is due to the tires based on the poor wet traction. Why did I buy a second set of these tires you may ask? Well, the first set lasted a long time and they were priced well. I have decided to go with the Yokohama Geolander A/T this time around so we'll see how they compare. I will try to remember and update this review once I have had a chance to see how the new tires perform. I would not recommend these tires, at least not for a 2WD pickup truck.

I bought my 88 Toyota 4x4 P/U in 2004. (95,000 original miles) Nick named "MINI MONSTER" by fellow 4x4 Club members, Previous owner gave it a 4" frame (suspension) lift and 5" Body lift, sporting BFG 33" tires. Being a redneck Female, I thought bigger tires were needed. After doing some off-road 4 wheeling with friends & much researching & gathering male opinions, I decided to replace the 33's with 35" & change the Brand. Using Tire Racks web site I searched brands. First sight of the Dunlop Mud Rovers and my search was over. The Meaty look of the tires would add a finishing touch to My Toy. In 2006 I purchased the 4 tires for appx. $150 each from the Rack. Off Roading in the Nevada Desert, salt flats & sand became a lot more thrilling for me. The tires dug right in with every condition. The first big snow when I pulled a STUCK full sized Ford P/U to Safety, I knew, once again I made the best choice in tires. Throughout the past years I have received many compliments on these tires,& have been the reason some have decided to replace their brand & style to these. 7 years & 10,000 miles later (not my commuter vehicle) when they're clean, these tires look as good as when new. Amazement over no dry rotting. Now 7 years later, after having a tire slashed, you could see where it took 3 attempts to get the knife blade to finally go through the sidewall, I was delighted to discover from Tire Rack that the price for replacement had only increased by $50. Thank You Dunlop for the Mud Rover Tire.
