My Suburban had Bridgestone Dueler A/T REVO P265/75R-16 when I bought it. I have been very happy with them. They did great in the snowstorm we had here last winter and have been great while towing my boat. I can't speak to how they handle off road or their longevity since I have only put on 5,000 miles, but they handle well and and are nice and quiet on the pavement.
I have had very good luck with Cooper tires, Bridgestone also, BFG tires seem to wear fast but maybe that's just me..
oh, and diesel burbans ROCK! :great:
I have a 2002 Tahoe 4WD and am just now replacing BFG AT that I put on ~77K ago. I replaced the BFG with Yokohma Geolander ATS - about $170 less than I paid for the BFG AT. Ride is great, hope they last as long as the BFGs.
Original factory tires on My '04 Suburban were Firestone Wilderness P265x70x16 W/O, and they only lasted to about 30,000 miles, and were replaced with Bridgestone Dueler H/T W/O, and I had those changed at 55,000 miles on May 2, 2012.
The replacement tires were BF Goodrich Long Trail T/A's, and I didn't much care for those treads.
I believe they are better suited for construction/commercial use, since they are rugged, though somewhat noisy on the interstate and highway.
Those were changed in May 2013 with only 8,000 miles on them.
They are currently sitting in My garage, and I'd take $200.00 or best offer (local pick up only!) for all four tires...one has had a patch-plug installed professionally, by the tire dealer, for a small finish nail puncture, though tire did not go flat, nor did it lose any air pressure.
I checked the tread depth on all 4 tires, and every tire shows 9/32nd's remaining tread depth (center tread), and the UTAQ code is 440 treadwear, traction B, temperature B, load rating 111T.
The replacement tires this time around are Bridgestone Dueler HL Alenza tires, and they require more sophisticated "road force" balancing due to the long wearing (UTAQ 700+ rating) rubber compound.
I prefer Firestone/Bridgestone tires for the Suburban, as they seem to ride quieter, and run smoother, IMO.
Tried in earnest to locate a set of Goodyear Triple Tread tires, also a 700+ UTAG rating, but none available locally....perhaps, next time around.
I just put a set of Rugged Terrain BF Goodrich ( 285/75/16 ) on my '97 2500. Haven't been in any snow or rain, so I guess I'm no help. I can say they are bad for picking up gravels.
Stay away from mastercraft. Put some AXT's on my wife's Tahoe and you could spit in front of it and get stuck. BFG, Goodyear, or most other name brand tires are ok. General is another I stay away from.
I for one prefer my falkens. Not American made, but damn good tires
I'm running Toyo ATIIs 285/75R16. Excellent tires! Guaranteed to last 60,000 miles.
I have had Goodyear, Goodrich, Firestone, Bridgestone and many others I am forgetting now and I think they are all pretty good tires. I am on my first set of Michelin Latitudes now and I have to say that for highway and towing I will never go back. I got mine at my local Chevy Dealer and they beat everybodys price out the door and then they gave me a 50.00 rebate when i left. i Never have done any off roading but when i was a kid I remember my Dad always had big mud tires but normally they were 4 different kinds. LOL! So, I say Michelins all the way. :great:
