Re: In an undisclosed location...

Had them installed today. Is it weird to get emotional over tires? Had such a great time with the old ones.

On another note, I got 40k or so miles out $2k worth of tires. 5¢/mile! How can that be?!

Re: In an undisclosed location...

How noisy did they get towards the end of their life? Considering them as replacements for my BFG KO's.

Nothing compared to the engine noise.

Re: In an undisclosed location...

just curious, what size and brand are you installing.

I assume you have a diesel when comparing the tire to engine noise…

thanks as i am looking for new tires myself.

Re: In an undisclosed location...

Zeta was the dude who convinced me to go with Toyo 315 MT's. When I saw his van I was hooked. They kicked the hell out of the 285 Toyo MT's I was running. Don't know why but they tracked better and I found the 315's actually got quieter as they wore. But I had to lift the van a bit more to fit them in.
