Hey guys I am about to start a job on an oil rig and as some of you know you have to travel a good deal of highway miles to get there and when you get there there is gravel rock dirt and mud leading up to the rig. I was hoping someone could help me out to which tire would be the absolute bestto fit my needs. The terra grappler I'm not sure I want cause I was reading earlier on here on how they suck at lasting. I was wondering if anyone has those Michelin ltx a/t 2??? I kinda like them. Thanks guys!
michelins wear like steel. to me the wet traction is lacking. i would personally like something a little grippier. but for your application i think they would be perfect. bought my 06 used with 33000miles. the rears were worn (probably due to p.o. doing some showing off). the fronts are original and i now have just over 80000miles and have never rotated since ive had them. still drive great.
Nittos wear real fast.
Michelin's are good, but their slick u can get stuck in stupid **** like grass.
i run Dueler at Revo 2 in a 285/75/16 and i cand complane.There are great on road, very quiet and smooth. There awesome off road 2.
good luck with the new job!
Sorry it took so long guys! And thank you for the good lick! I'm gonna need it! and wow them michelins sound great! As long as they will do ok on mud and gravel an what not and in pavement this is really helping! Thanks a bunch!
Goodyear Wrangle Silent Armor's are rated pretty good. I'm on my 3rd set of them, and I am very impressed with them. I do mostly hiway, but gravel roads and prairie trails are also traveled frequently.
Michelin LTX A/T 2 and Michelin LTX M/S 2, also the the Toyo HT Tuff duty look like nice tires and when I looked were priced at good $50.00 per tire less then the Michelin A/T 2 and IIRC $72.00 less then the M/S 2.
