I concur with thoughts above on the Geolanders, I had them mounted(A/S street version) 2 months ago to handle the snow and winter driving condition that we face here in Alberta (Canada). They are highly rated for both the summer and winter while having the appearance of a sport tire......maybe worth looking into as the prices are very competitive.....just MHO.

I run 305-50-20 terra grapplers on my Dodge, and am thinking of using those on my 04 Z-71 Hoe when my Goodyears wear out. I havnt seen any narrower ones on a tahoe, but I LOVE them on the Ram. Great tires, used Michelins and BFG's on my silverado's. I love the BFG's but they tend to run narrow, so go atleast one size bigger with those IMO.

Is there a reason why you are only looking at Mud Terrains? I currently have Toyo Open Country M/Ts on my Tahoe. It is my daily driver and these tires are getting annoying (not to mention they wear fast on road). The M/Ts pack snow and almost turn into a slick, they are also noisy at any speed over 45 mph. I do take the Tahoe offroad occasionally, but not enough to warrant a permanent M/T tire... so I just bought some BFG All Terrain KO tires. They received great reviews for on and off road and have a good tread life.

Just my .02$

I agree M/T's look cool, but not very functional for highway use. Terra Grapplers are cool and I have had real good luck with on a 2500 4wd dodge Hemi. BFG A/T KO's are very hard to beat for grip and wear and handling on and off road. I bought a new set of take off Firestone somethings from a new ford for one of my silverado's and they friggen lasted 84,000 miles. I bought a set of dunlops after that and they seem to be ok too. I have the factory wranglers on my Z-71, 2nd set and not happy with them for money. Going grapplers next on it. I saw a pic in the pic section on here with them, and they look bi*chen. Get something that will were well and not tear up your stuff. Front end parts get expensive. Worst tires in the world for road is Thornbirds. They look cool, but will tear up every joint you have in your steering. Been there done that.

Goodyear gets Fierce with new LT tire


Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. has added a new tire to its high performance Fierce line, the Fierce Attitude M/T.

The Fierce Attitude M/T will be available this spring in 11 popular light truck and off-road sizes, "with two of the sizes offering a unique raised white letter sidewall," according to Goodyear officials. Sizes range from 16 inches to 18 inches.

The tire contains large lugs, stepped shoulder blocks for extra traction and a high-void trade design for enhanced water and mud evacuation.

Its sidewall features a "barbed wire" design "for a radical appearance."
