Tire Review thread

Discussion in 'Wheels & Tires' started by Redneck_ranger, Feb 29, 2012.

  1. Starting up a tire review thread where you can express your feelings about tires you had on your vehicles. Couldn't find one when I searched, so why not?

    On my truck currently: 31" Definity Dakota M/Ts
    On-road: Smooth ride, quiet for a mud terrain.
    Off-road: Good traction on dry ground, suck in mud :furious: (ironic)
    Snow: GREAT! Had it on dirt roads and in 2" of snow with 2wd. Great tire for snow! :thumbup:
    Appearance on vehicle: I like em. They made the truck seem more badass
    Overall rating: I'd personally give them 4/5 stars. They haven't really affected my gas mileage all that much like most people live and die by saying. Cheap cost, about $145 a tire. Backed by Pep Boys roadside hazard warranty too! Good tire.

    Great tires.. semi noisy on road(look aty the tread and you wouldn't believe they were as quiet as they are)
    Great in snow, rain, on road, off road, haven't tried mudding yet cause its been halfway winter since I got them, and I've got a bad cv axle(doing it tomorrow or Saturday)

    Nitto Terra Grapplers

    On Road: Very quiet, smooth, ZERO hydroplaning
    Off Road: Surprised me in the mud! Did very well for an AT
    Everything else: Not the best in the snow but better than a radial im sure. Look great and one of the cheapest ATs out there!

    GoodYear Wrangler SR-A

    -Summer at 35 PSI
    -Winter at 32 PSI with 350 lbs of sand/salt bags in the bed for weight
    8,000 miles done so far. 2 winters, 1 summer

    Excellent/Exceed Expectations/Good/Acceptable/Poor/Not Recommended/ N/A
    Acceleration Traction/Braking traction/Cornering traction

    Dry Pavement:Good/Good/Above Average
    Wet Pavement:Acceptable/Acceptable/Poor
    Gravel Road:Acceptable/Poor/Poor
    Sand:Not Recommended
    Snow: Acceptable/Acceptable/Acceptable
    Ice:Not Recommended
    Mud:Not Recommended
    Rock Crawling:Not Recommend
    Noise Level: Good

    Are these Recommended? Hell no, There are far better tires then these OEM wannabes. It's better to pay for a little extra a buy a tire thats more specific for your needs. Either an A/T for the weekend off roader, Another All Season for DD or an All weather/Winter tire for the Cold. I wouldn't Recommended these Tires for anything other then strick Dry Highway Daily Driving use. But upon further research, numerous owners complain of inconsistent and quick wear (although I have yet to experience this). I hope this helps

    ****For those who are unaware this is a very common tire to find on brand new vehicles (OEM) I believe this is a cost efficency tire for manufacturers. This is the Tire that came with my truck from the dealership Brand New.

    Yokohama Geolanders

    size: 31x10.50r15

    On road: quiet great traction, never slip or hydroplane.
    Snow: Have no snow here couldn't tell you
    Sand: No problems even when inflated
    Dirt/Gravel: Great
    Mud: Avergae
    Overall: For my style offroading (desert /trail running) 4.5 stars

    Goodyear Wrangler Radial

    Size: 235/75 r15

    On Road: Quiet, no issues what so ever
    Snow: No snow
    Dirt/Gravel: No real major issues tend to pack dirt and slip
    Mud: Awful
    Overall: Much better tire than what it has been said to be. Definitely not a mud tire and serious off-roaders should stay away. Worth the cheap price though 3.75 stars
