Tire Suggestions

Bought a set of A/R Mainlines black with a polished face. 20"

Thinking about a 275/60/20 Destination A/T. Anyone had any experiance with these tires?? I like the Revo II, had a set on my 07 after I dumped the Perelli's. but the Revo's wore out at 45,ooo miles. The Revo's are about $70.00 a tire more than the Destination.

Want a tire that looks aggresive, but maintains a decent ride.

In that size you could consider the Cooper Zeon LTZ.

I've got them on my Harley & they're awesome...very aggressive look, but much quieter riding than you'd expect.

Excellent wearing tire & the pricing is very competitive.

I'd pass on the Destination. They will be an ok tire but once you put about 2-3 yrs of wear on them the wet/show grip goes away.

I would also pass on the Destinations.

BFG All Terrain KO2 or Nitto Terra Grappler are the way I will be going when the Pirelli's go.

I've heard good things about the KO2. I have KO's on my truck and they've been good, not great. They have worn well with 90,000km on them and I should get to 100,000.

I'm debating KO2's for my new tires or the Goodyear Duratrac. I've heard good things about Duratracs in winter.

Winters I run Nokian Nordman SUV. 2 winters on them and they work great.
Need new summers this since I wore out the General Grabber UHPs. I'll put on a set of Michelen LTX AT2s since I got them for free from my dad.

Kim's Taurus we run the Nokian Nordman 5 in winter and summers are the stock tires it came with, I'll have to look in the garage to be sure what they are.

The KO2's are supposed to have the reliability and off road ability of the KO's and better winter and wet performance, comparable to the Duratracs.

The last time I was in the market for tires I looked at the Duratracs but they were approximately $ 75 more per tire. Not to mention being a heavier (weight) tire.

I'm currently enjoying the smooth quiet ride of the factory Goodyears on my screw, but when they wear out appropriate looking KO2s will be installed.

I have had the BFG AT T/A KO on my RWD Mazda truck. After two winters sliding around or getting stuck, a set of entry level studded winter tires were the way to go. Otherwise, the KO were okay for the other 3 seasons. When gravel gets into the open treads, they get very noisy.
