I had been through 2 sets of Goodyears on my Nitro by 80,000 miles. They were expensive and should have been replaced at 30,000 miles, but I pushed them to their limit. They were decent for about 18,000 miles, then they became real susceptible to hydroplaning and had a real hard time in any type of wet weather. These are the tires I am comparing the Geolanders to.
So far, with these Geolanders, I cannot say enough good things about them. They literally seem to stick to the ground when its wet. I am able to take corners and accelerate without spinning the tires in any weather. We also use my Nitro to launch our boat, and at low tide, the boat ramp is a slimey, algae covered mess and these tires do not slip at all. Costing me much less then the Goodyears and making my daily commute much safer is pretty impressive. I've also read that they last longer and since I rotate them alot, I am planning to get the most out of them. I will surely buy another set, one day.
