I used to drive the Dalton hyway in Alaska in the 80's and bought a used Suburban from BP. It had Bridgestones that had a close resemblence to these Geolanders. I wanted to get some wet grass miles, some wet and dry snow miles, icey, wet roads, heavy rain, mud and some hyway miles on them before I rated them. I see some of these guys write reviews on tires before the stickers are worn off the treads. These are much quiter than the Goodyear Wranglers that were on this truck when I inherited it after my mother passed away. My dad has been buying 4x4's since 1967 and this was his last before passing away 7 years ago so this 2000 Silverado 4x4 had less than 45k on it when I got it but there were two of the twelve year old Wranglers with broken belts.
