My wife is gonna kill me!
After five years and 45k, it's time for new tires on the Suburban. I have spent endless hours researching, pricing etc tires online and talking with local dealers. I thought I was set on the General Grabber HTS, but after talking to a trustworthy tire dealer, he swayed me against them because the tread life is incredibly short. I refuse to pay for Michelin, I put under 10k/ year on the truck, I tow a 28' travel trailer 2-5 times a year, off road is limited to gravel roads and grass, we do get our fair share of snow here in northern MD but wet roads are more of a concern to me and I'd like to keep the price under $160/tire. Tires I am considering...265 70 17
Kumho Venture AT
General Grabber HTS
Toyo Open Country AT
Toyo open Country HT
Cooper Discoverer CTS or AT3
Nitto Dura Grappler (recommended by tire dealer)
Your thoughts and suggestions please as not only am I bugging the hell out of my wife, but it's also starting to get my head spinning!
