Default New tires...

Gotta get some new skins soon, anyone have any experience/opinion about these:

Sumitomo

Yokohama

General


I wish I could afford these, maybe if I waited long enough:

BFG

Generals ride great... thats all I have to say... don't know anything about Japanese tires, and I have no experience with lo-pro BFGs.

Maybe a red stripe tire? LOL j/k

i know alot of ricers that talk up Yokohama lo-pros on big rims, say they ride and handle well, but I dunno how they would feel on a truck..

I have heard that the BFG lo pros are the best American lo pro you can get right now. I'm leaning toward Sumitomo on the Japanese side, I like the tread pattern better than the Yoko and General.

How many miles can you get out of tires like those? I've only dealt with All-Terrains and Mud-Terrains my whole life. Just curious.

I've been on a set of Federal Super Street' for over 45,000 now. They still have about 70% tread left, but they are nearing 4 years old, and I have had a few patches due to nails and things like that, and it just seems like a good idea to get the new set before one of these meets its demise while I am driving. I can't replace my wheels, being as they only made a limited set, so I'd rather just be careful and get the new skins.

I say if ya can hold out for the BFG's. Acutally just had a set put on my buddy's silverado 2 months agoand he loves them. They really seem to ride nice and handling seems pretty spot on. Compared to the knock-off brand tires he had before these are a dream.

I'm gonna hold out as long as I can in hopes of grabbing up those BFG's! Jeez, I've never dropped that much on tires though, I'd have to be absolutely sure they are worth it first.
