anyone ever used the Firestone Destination M/T? Do we even get them down here? Usually see the off road guys and parking lot specials with Maxxis, BFGs, Kumhos, etc, but never noticed the Firestone M/T.
The online reviews sound really good though.

dunlop grantrek at3 gave me about 45k. No rotation because i'm lazy. Coming to end of life the back end gets tail happy in the wet.

75% highway, 20% badroad, 5% mud.

Won't mind trying something else though. from online reviews Bravo 771 looks like it's a bit better in the wet.
Size I want hard to get.

agreed :!:
just checked both on tirerack; didn't realize the firestones were so close in price to the KM2.
You use yours as your everyday tyres, or just for off road fun?
On another note I see plenty people with Comforsers (sp?), anyone on here have experience with those?

You have a comparison with actual shipping cost and locally bought?

Would like to see if it's worth it than just buying it here

You save about 1500 overall. By bringing dem in. The comforsers are about 1000 per tyre and are great in the mud and on the road. But they don't last as long as the bfg

Got 4 michelin ltx at2 265/65r17 tyres for sale. All tyres have alot of thread still, even wear and rotated regularly. Personally these are the best tyres I ever ran, esp in the rain. In deep mud they are not so good like most AT tyres.
Reason for sale: bought bigger tyres.
Price $1800 negotiable.

easy enough to find, got some at a good price

Maxxis Bravo AT 771

Did some calling around before and other retailers have these for 1500-1800, so not bad at all.
