As far as stock size tires go I'm partial to Toyos. They hold up well
off road, have adequate load ratings, and the best part is they wear
like iron. My old man's been running them on his 3/4 ton Silverado for
15-20 years and he's abused the hell out of them and never had a
My '99 Yuk had a set of Toyo Open Country's on it when I bought it. Those
tires were the worst hydroplaning POS I've ever had the bad luck of driving
on. Good tire in the dry but hit the slightest puddle and you felt like you
where in a Escort with baldies on it.
BFG A/T on it now, a little harder ride but wet / snow grip is leagues

There isn't a question or an option.. take a look at Michelin product line.
Nobody builds a better tire. I've got LTX A/T's on mine but if you're never
off road you'll probably prefer something like the Cross Terrain or the LTX
M/S... I had a set of those on my 2000 Tahoe before my A/T's... Nothing will
come close to traction, ride or wear as Michelins...
"Get Stuck Anywhere"...at least that's what the Jeep guys call 'em.
Used to be stock tires on the Wrangler's.

I've pretty well settled on the BFG ATs (235/85R16) on my truck. They
perform well in well, all terrain, pavement, snow, dirt, mud, etc., have
reasonable service life and aren't too expensive (7 at a pop is still
BFG AT KO's on my '99 Yukon. 50k miles, 6/32nd's of tread left on them.
New measurement was 16/32.
No complaints, still have good snow grip at less than 1/2 worn. Never had
any issues with any BFG tire I've owned.
I'll second the GSA's comment, had them on a S blazer. They suck, hydroplane
on slush easy too......
i also run BFG ATS on my 1999 tahoe and 1989 ford bronco and 2000 jeep xj
absolutly the best tire for the price in my applications OF ROCK, MUD AND

I have a 2004 Yukon and am still running the original tires, Firestone
Wilderness LE, and have over 62,000 miles on them. Will be putting new ones
on soon and am reading all your recommendations. I plan to go back to the
Firestones unless I read something that changes my mind.
I pulled a 10 x 12 trailer from Texas to Ohio several times and it was
loaded to the hilt with our furniture. Also drove thru the snow storm in
Cincinnati around Christmas a year or two ago and have no complaints. We
did as good as any 4 wheel drive. I can't say enough about the Yukon or the
Have you checked out the Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor? Similar to the
regular Wrangler, but add a Kevlar belt and has a different tread design.
Goodyear rates it quieter with better traction under all condition than the
regular Wrangler tires. I put a set on my '06 Duramax dually last month.
