Default Any good A/T 235/70r15 tires?

I've been searching and searching for decent all terrain tires that are 235/70/15 and I haven't had much of a luck.

So far I have found the Yokohama geolander which looks nice, but has tread wear as a negative when I was looking at reviews
Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S Tires 01245 - Free Shipping on Orders Over $99 at Summit Racing

and then the Good year tire which looks decent too

Any suggestions on which to go with or any other good options?
Thanks

Www.tirerack.com will give you plenty of information...

You'll find more options in the 235/75 R15 tire size than in the 235/70 R15. The size difference is negligible.

Tread wear sucks on every tire! I hate buying them!! There's no reason tires shouldn't last the life of the vehicle!!!

Personally, on my drivable Blazers, I have a set of Firestone destination LE2's and a set of Firestone destination AT's. Both sets are 235/75 R15. I live in Iowa and have never been stuck with either.

My 2500 and Yukon XL both have the Bridgestone's that came on them from the factory. Both sets are doing well between 46k and 48k.

Longest lasting tires I ever ran were Goodrich long trails that came on my 2003 Yukon XL - 70k plus...

Shortest lasting tires I ever ran were Cooper Discover at3s that I put on my 2008 Yukon XL - 38k ...

Hope that helps!

Another vote for plus sizing to the 235/75R15 tire. There are many more options in this size.

You'll be going from a 28.0" OD tire to a 28.9" OD and can expect to have your speedometer read just over 3% low; speedo will read 58mph when you are actually travelling 60mph. Other than that, no other real disadvantages that will be noticeable resulting from the larger tire.

Yeah the variety for 235/75/15 is MUCH MUCH better. Im curious tho, if the 2wd blazers came with 235/75/15 then why did GM put 235/70/15 on the 4WD models? Just for the heck of it..? lol

EDIT:
I found A/T firestone thanks to that website!

I think I'll just stick with 235/70/15

They look pretty similar but which of the two you guys think is more capable of off road terrains?

These tire sizes are options for both the 2wd and 4wd. It all comes down to how the vehicle was optioned out by whoever bought it originally.

I have these on my 97 4d 4x4 never had a single issue love them. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....omCompare1=yes bought them with 1200 miles on back in 2009 for $100 total. I'll probably never find a deal like that again and they are now due to be replaced. Thinking about the KO2s http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....omCompare1=yes

I actually went with the Firestone Destination 235/70/15 but haven't mounted them on yet.
