New Tires how long are yours lasting?

I am so happy to get rid of my Hancooks (35x12,50 MT).

Toyo Open Country's now(35x12,50 MT). Much quieter and hope to get More than 20,000 out of them, without them self destructing, and causing wobble noise and uncomfortable driving. Yes, I have rotated, balanced, And lifetime alignment at Firestoned them. I will do the same to these and see which lasts longer. I will keep you all posted.

I am interested in hearing about what you's (Italian thing) are getting for tire life? Please let me know and the brand. I may go with 37's next time, and as this is such an investment, I would like to know which brands offer the best success.

Thank you

I got 35k out of my first set of 35" MTR's. They got hard, not worn. 5k out of the current set and they are jacked. Maybe I should align it? It has only been 4 1/2 years and 3 suspension systems?

Glad to hear that you are happy. Has the DW decreased? If you hit up Off Road Expo stop by our booth, I'd like to say hello.

I got 25000 out of my first set of my 37" Irok Radials, could have gotten more if I rotated them properly. The rears still had a around 50% tread left. I have abot 5K on the new set and they still look new.

I was planning on stopping by but I have to work a show in Las Vegas that weekend. Not as pimpin as Pomona of course but................ Another day another dollar.

Frank thank you again for all you and Edlebrock have done for me. The tire swap and keeping the front end bolted up nice and tight have solved the issue for now. The welds and gussets I made for the control arm brackets are holding up nice.

5000 Mi and toast already............ Holy Crap

Hi Ak

Coopers I thought someone might have said they are the same as the pro comps?

Paul, I've got BFG A/T 35s on mine (well, 34.5....315.70R17) with about 18K miles on them. You saw them in Temecula a couple weeks ago, getting decent tread wear. I commute a lot more than I go off road right now, so.....

Dirty's Minions don't officially exist. They are a myth, a bedtime story, a whispered rumor. They are ghosts.

21,000 miles on my Parnelli Jones and I would reckon at least another 10-15,000 left on them.

Damn good tire - plan on buying them again.
