Default Truck Tires

I need new truck tires for my 05 Tundra 4X4. Anyone have experience with Michelin Cross Terrain's? The BFGoodrich Radial Long Trails that came with the truck are pure crap. 30,000 miles and they are at the end of their life. They were never much good in the rain at any point in their life.

Yokohama Geolanders.

I regularly get 70,000 miles out of them.

I have looked at those for my Suburban, but decided to with something else - all the Michelins are pricey. If you haven't already I would check Tire Rack. Even if you buy locally, Tire Rack is a great resource for getting feedback on most brands and models. Here is the link to the survey results page:

Looks like the survey ranks the Cross Terrains 8th:




Here is what Consumers Reports has to say:



Personally I think I am going to go with a mixed set the next time I need tires. Put some Falkens on the front and Asshos on the back and really let other drivers know what I think of them

The cheapest I found was at Costco. $176.99 each installed

I've had the long trails.......they suck.

On my old truck I bought some Firestone Destination AT's and really like them.

My new truck came with the Michelin LTX tires and there also nice.

However, I sold them to get a bigger more aggresive tire and went to the BFG AT's.

So far so good. Not much road noise and seem to wear nicely.

So if I were you I'd look at the BFG's, Michelin's, Firestone or Toyos.

All good tires.

Thanks for the info. I have heard that the Goodyear TripleTred can be pretty loud

Get the BFG AT's or Bridgestore Dueler A/T Revos. Both are awesome tires.

I have them and they are not noisy at all. Original tires were awfull from the factory when wet out. For what it's worth, I would buy these again for my next vehicle.
