I was thinking of putting the Yokohama Geolander AT+II tires on my Durango. Has anyone had (or heard anything about) any of these tires?

I had them on my Dak 31X10.5, they were great tires. BUT they were loud after they wore in a bit.

Look at Bridgestone Dueler Revo's they're one of the best tires out there and the noise level is low.

Have you looked at the Yokohama AVS S/T?
Since I live in an area that is prone to snow/ice on occasion, I don't particularly like this tire. It looks realy cool, though, and got good reviews.

That tire does look awesome, but at roughly $160 a tire, it's outside my pricerange. :( I'm trying not to spend much more than $500.

I drive a lot, so tires tend not to last too long. I'd say that 85% of my driving is highway, and 15% off-road. Of that 15%, I'd say that 8% is in muddy clay, which we all know is real slippery. Then, there's the occasional pulling a boat trailer up the wet ramp. Just thought I'd mention that in case if anyone had any better suggestions for tires for me.

Thanks.
Josh

I know what you mean. I have an extra set of wheels fitted with winter tires.

I do 90% highway driving and the noise of those Yoko's got to me after awhile.
I did a search on tirerack.com of the best 31" tires out there from reviews. Take a look at the links to see what you like.

Here's a comment on your "top of the line" tire.

"At first, the tires were quiet. At about 20,000 miles the tires became very loud."

For snow I would go with the BFG. Unless you do some serious off-road I don't like any of them. The Bridgestone ("top of the line") would be the best compromise between off-road, snow and summer use.

There's always negitive reviews on every product!! I would take the Revo's over BFG A/T any day, because that's what I like.

Example: Here's a comment to your BFG A/T that you recommend for snow.

"In Manitoba we get 5 to 6 months of winter and the BFG A/Ts just dont cut it. I would often get stuck in 3 inches of hard snow when in 4 WHEEL DRIVE! You could get out and push the truck but it would NOT pull itself! Also on ice they were horrible, in cold weather they would turn into hockey pucks and just slide."

Josh needs to look at the tires that meet his needs and price.

Well, after having the Yokohama Geolander AT+II tires for a little while, I can say that I would give the tires an 8 out of 10. Definitely have a lot of grip, but I get a bit of tire hum on the highway.
