a local guy just posted about these the other day. he said they've been getting good customer reviews and they are reasonably priced, but I'm not sure what exactly the price is.

Word ^ the Federals are quickly becoming popular for the guys wanting an aggressive MT for a 20, I'll hopefully be following that route. One guy said he had a blowout in one, but that is no reason to condem a company of course. I myself plan on getting a set for the eventual 20's on the sierra (provided all works as planned)


I also have (2) Firestone Destination A/T's in a 265/70/17 that were on the rear of my sierra for about 4 months that I loved, I've thought about getting 2 more and sell them as a set or just sell the 2 I have

I put Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2s on my wife's 4Runner and so far I love them. I haven't put a ton of miles on them yet, but all the customer reviews I read or heard before I bought them were really good.

Well it really depends on what your price range is and what size exactly are you looking @. Also have to take into consideration how much snow fall you get.

I know my parents just got the walmart goodyears that they had and my mom likes them currently.

I run procomp's on my '94(31x10.5r15) and will be putting procomps on my wifes '95(30x9.5r15) next year.

Let me rephrase that about the wifes. that will really depend on price or I may go TOYO with black wall since they are made in the US and the White letters are made in china. Procomps last I heard are still made in the US by cooper.

If you noticed I'm putting a set of nokian vitavia AT's on my wife blazer in the near future and actually sold a set to a friend of mine and his tread depth takes almost a whole penny.(lt245-75-16{10ply})

Looks like you should quite rubbing up with curbs there. LOL. Grabbers are very similar to procomps. I like them and they look better then the std bfg everyone runs.

Have you checked out the Hankook Dynapro ATM RF10? It was either them or the Nitto Terra Grapplers (yea, yea bro tire, but they perform well from what I hear) when I was looking earlier and went with the Dynapro b/c I could get a much better deal on the size I wanted. The Dynapros have a slightly narrower actual tread width than the nittos from what I can tell. I don't have much experience with them in adverse conditions yet since it's been dry as hell this year and no rain out here. Dry grip is great, wet and gravel road traction is fine so far for the little bit I got to try out while in Colorado in July.

RF10's are badass. Before My Dad got out of the game (Marketing Manager for A hankook tire distributor), he got a set from Hankook to put on his Tahoe, also we ordered some for my buddy on his OBS silverado. They're great tires, but I've always been partial to Hankook, obviously. LOL

Those hankook dynapros are very popular in my region, they seen to wear good and go through everything you would expect from an all terrain.
