    Guess I never wrote up a review of these
    Been running them daily 90 miles to work and back 5 days a week, plus weekend trips for a couple of months
    Aggressive looking tread, dig good quiet on the road, balanced well with very little weight
    Now I ran the Duratracs before and loved them, but I think overall like these even better

    Had looked at others like the Hankook DynaPros, Cooper Discoverer AT3s etc and they just did nothing for me
    After reading tons of reviews glad I went the way I did

    By the way running 265-70-16s on 8 inch wide Moabs , tread width is over 8 inches wide so look and fit a wider wheel great

    I run them in the same size and love them. Mine are on the stock wheels though. I have no complaints.

    We put them on my daughters JK and are going to get them for the wife's Murano here shortly also.

    They seem to be a solid tire. I ordered a set at Walmart but they messed the order up and I ended up with the Hankooks. I have the new Cooper Discoverer AT3Ws on the XJ and like those a lot too.

    Keep us posted on these! I couldn't figure out what people got out of these life wise/how the aged when I did my research last year, still soon to tell then.

    I've had this tire on my buy list for a long time and will get them once my Duratracs are finally done. I drove a friend's Tundra that has them and I liked them a lot.

    I had decided some time ago that these would be the tires I put on my Moabs after the OME lift goes on. At about $120-$125 a tire, a great value as well.

    Hey Tom, any update on these? Still running smooth and quiet? Thinking about getting a set.

    They are about like the Duratracs as far as noise, you don't rotate , they make more noise, not bad but noticeable
    I'm looking again, they have maybe another 10-12,000 miles left but looking at what is new or coming out to test when these are gone
    Like them a lot but you know me always changing LOL
    I drive about 95-100 miles a day so doesn't take long to wear them down.
    Plus side trips to NC every now and again, thats a nice 700 miles on a weekend .

    I’ll jump in here because I am looking at tires too. I had a shop suggest Nitto Ridge Grapplers because they are awesome traction and stay quiet as they wear, but I would need wheel spacers to clear them. I’m thinking no on that. My Duratracs have a bunch of tread left but have become pretty crappy in the rain and are loud as heck (even though I rotate them every 3-5K). But they have 95,000 miles on them, so I am not too disappointed. Seems like they had siped tread blocks where the sipes aren’t very deep, so once you wear them to a certain point they lose performance. Check out a pic of a new duratrac and compare it to a used one on Craigslist and you’ll see what I mean.
    Now reading reviews on BFG KO2’s. They seem to be a huge improvement over the original KO’s in terms of wet traction, tread life, and quietness. A local tire shop has them for $187 each with $70 off and free installation, so I’m thinking I will give those a try. If I do I’ll report back.

    That's pretty much what the KJ sees now...mostly highway driving.
    I have Yoko Geolander G015s on the KL and they're silent. Only a few K on them though.

    That should be like, understatement of the decade right there. :D
    I've only gotten 5 years / 30k miles on my Goodyear Wrangler SilentArmor set, and they're going to be replaced soon.

    I'm looking for new shoes in the Spring. I'd read a review on the Wildpeaks and how Turota has them on a version of the Rav4.

    Somehow I'd totally missed this thread though. After reading the thread I'm a little disappointed in the noise aspect. I don't do much more than a bad dirt road anymore but would like something quiet.

    I've had Yokahoma Geolanders on for a few years. Fantastic tire for me, but they have gotten really loud as they wore.

    Hey Tom - who did you get them from?

    HJ: I have Yoko Geolander AT-s. Been doing 5 tire rotation but it has been about 45k - 50k miles on them at the 2-3/32 mark already.

    I think those I got from tires-easy.com
    I bought those and the Kumho Road Venture AT51s for the 05 about the same time and bought different places
    Of course the 05 is a short distance , elderly hauling machine, hasn't been over 120 miles from home since I bought it LOL

    Mine aren't. Maybe 30-40K, I'd need to look to be sure, probably 25-30% tread left. Been noisy for a while. Quiet for a while after I rotate, but gets noisy pretty quick after I rotate now.

    Which Geolander do you have?
    And that's my same experience with the Hankook Dynapro ATMs.
