Re: Tires: Ponderings & Ruminations
Do you have a Costco membership? There are two Costco's up in AK IIRC. If so, check out the BFG KO2's... they make a C range tire in 255/75/17 and 265/70/17. 47# a piece and will ride great, also rated for winter driving. We put them on my wife's 4Runner (E rated 275/70/17 though...) and it rides like a dream. Grippy, great in the snow, didn't hurt the MPG much (minus .5 avg over). I paid $950 out the door for 5, I bet the C range ones would be significantly less. Just bought a set for my 2000 hilux surf here in Japan, 265/75/16 E range, for $850 out the door, they are a little harsh on the tiny truck, but the suspension is also 20 years old OEM.
Also, Costco has the famous return policy if you don't like it, a great warranty, and lifetime backing/rotation/repair etc.
I had 3 sets of Duratrac Wranglers, loved them as well. But I havn't been able to get them as reasonably priced as the KO2's. In my experience, the Duratracs were better offroad, the KO2's have the advantage on road, but both are great.
