Only complaint I have is the drop in gas mileage but it's not that extreme...It's what you get with a high rolling resistance tire not to mention since they weigh like 80 lbs apiece.

+1. got the nittos and love them. Please my last 2 sets of BFG AT only lasted 30-35k miles. And the last 5k miles were scary in the rain.
i just bought a set of nitto terra grapplers they have a nice aggressive tread, was going to get bfg all terrains but the nittos were $300 cheaper.

I wanna see if anyone has had any luck with the Cooper Zeon LTZs... they look like an awesome tire to me...
I'm running them now and LOVE them...
So far I really like this tire. Don't know about longevity yet.. but I'll let you know.

^^Those are good tires, the best set I had were Bridgestone Dueller A/T REVO's...awesome in the snow and ice!
I put these on last fall. So far so good. A bit of tire noise at highway speed but that is to be expected.

I put a set of Destination A/Ts on my 3/4 ton Suburban last fall. Had 2 sets of Firestone Steeltex A/Ts on there before that and would have put another set on but they discontinued them. I was hoping these worked as good and I must say I am very pleased. I put over 7,000 miles on them this winter towing heavy trailers on the highway and in the mountains. The snow and ice traction was great, mud traction was good. They were very quiet on the highway and show no abnormal wear. I suspect they will last at least 35K miles and I would get another set if they do. Don't like the Duelers and the Wranglers and haven' t tried BFG.
There is a reason the Steeltex were discontinued... because they were all recalled ...
I know only a small percentage of any susceptible tire actually does separate.... but you were lucky to avoid these problems on the two sets that you wore out ... IMO, Destination A/Ts are destined to the same fate as the Steeltex, Wilderness ATs, Dual Steel Radials, 500s, and countless other recall notices.... just my opinion
My vote is for TOYO Open Country A/T for all terrain tires...
Toyo Open Country G02plus .. were very impressive ice radials last winter on my Impala.

anything with Goodyear on the side is pretty much crap.
Not any of mine,Goodyear's all I've run for 15 years,I've had Wrangler TD's,RT/S's,and AT/S's,and I've had great luck and excellent wear with all of them
I also have Goodyear Assurance ComforTred's on my Saturn...They are a nice,smooth,excellent wearing tire for passenger cars,and they do great in the rain!!
I wouldn't run anything but Goodyear's
+1 I've always have good experiences with Goodyear. Especially in the winters here. My dad has used Michellins on a few of his cars and seems to like them. Although I have no clue what they are like on trucks..if they even make a truck tire.
I know Tony Stewart and Dale Jr. don't like goodyear though.

My new 09 Silverado is equipped with the Dueler AT's which are a huge improvement over the Dueler AT's used on the previous generation pickup as these tire grip very well on payment.
