Michelin & BFGoodrich


I called the office on wrightson road, the girl heard they have a sale but hadn't seen the updated price list yet.

For 265/70/16 the Michelins XTT (AT) are $1534(VI) and the Syncron (HT) are $1659(VI). The BF Goodrich All Terrains (didnt get the model) were $1233.95 (VI)

Image

The Scorpion ATR is Pirelli's On-/Off-Road All-Terrain light truck tire developed for pickup, crossover and sport utility vehicle drivers that want to combine on-road civility with off-road capability. The Scorpion ATR is designed to master long highway journeys, wet roads and the challenges of winter driving by combining paved road comfort and handling with rough terrain grip and maneuverability.

The Scorpion ATR features a silica-enhanced tread compound molded into a quiet-running, symmetric all-terrain type tread pattern. A virtual continuous center rib and large, stable shoulder tread blocks provide directional stability and steering response while interlocked independent tread blocks in the center tread area further promote acoustic comfort, even on-road wear and off-road traction. Sweeping central circumferential grooves and lateral shoulder grooves channel water to resist hydroplaning and enhance wet traction. The independent tread blocks are siped to provide extra biting edges that enhance off-road traction on loose surfaces and in snow. The tire's internal structure includes twin steel belts reinforced with spirally wrapped nylon cord to support the tread area providing predictable handling and high-speed control, while polyester cords stabilize the sidewalls and enhance ride quality.

4x4 SUV tyres difficult to get. Pickup trucks seem to be much easier.

I originally wanted the Continental ContiCrossContact UHP or the ContiCrossContact LX. Checked with LDG - none.

I eventually settled for the Toyo Proxes ST 235/65R17 from MM.

BTW, Lifestyle Motors has a special direct import arrangement with TireRack. Call and ask for Nigel de Parts Manager 6741000.

Rush....sit down with the yellow pages and call around....ask for your size, A/T vs H/T and price....

....then decide on what you like and go see them for yourself.....that's what i did, and i like what i have vs all the tyres i saw.

useless though as teh Ranger was a 4x2 hi-rider

Ok guys the day was a long one..

Here are the findings..

Tire Survey Results

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/surveyres ... ?type=ORAT

From Tire Rack , On-/Off-Road All-Terrain

Top 3 tires..

1. Firestone Destination A/T
2. Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor
3. Michelin LTX A/T 2

I found them all … and prices were as follows..


Firestone Destination A/T - $900.00 (Tyre Shop)
Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor - $1487.21 (Master Serv)
Michelin LTX A/T 2 - $1722.70 (Quick Service)

I also checked the Michelin Cross Terrain
At a Tyre Shop.. - $1400.00


Seeing that the Firestone Destination is rated 1st and the cheapest, I am seriously considering buying….

I would have never thought a Firestone would be in the high ratings tho...
