    The Destination looks too "woodsy" for me. Kyle, have you had the Alenzas? Looks like Tire Rack has them for $142 in my size. That would be hard to beat if they are good.

    I put michelins on most of my cars. The ltx/ms would be a great choice. I put the ltx/at2's on wifey's pilot and probably won't go that aggressive next time. I thought we might see some sand or snow in it but haven't really used them. The ltx/ms works great in the rain and snow/ice and is good for 50k (I've run a couple of sets). The at/2 will work better in deeper snow and sand. I don't think I'll get 50k out of them. I had the original at's in load range E still going after 100k on my old passport, the lot that bought it showed pictures of the good tires as a selling point!

    Love Michelins. Can't afford 'em. Our biggest problem here is the UV and heat. Gotta get new tires every 4 years or so just about no matter what. I just saw some General Grabber HTS for $116 on Tire Rack. I've paid more than that for Chineseho in the past. Might pull the trigger today. Tire Rack has testing results that put them above a few others.

    I have not personally owned the Alenza's. I just shopped them when buying new tires and they were the best thing out at that time.

    Since you mentioned the burb ... I'll throw a couple pics up. Here are the Destinations LE's on the vehicle.

    Hmm. They look pretty darn good and not as off road as I thought they would. Thanks!

    Wifey gets michelins and I get hankooks Been happy with them. Good, even wear. Stay balanced, not prone to punctures.
    I sent a friend to Americas tire for the 35" Hankook mud tire on his 'burb and when they didn't have it in stock he got the BFG KM2's for the Hankook price

    Looks like I could get the Destination LE2 for same money and it's a better tire (I think the other Destination I was looking at was AT, not LE or something). Thing is I can't stand white letters or even OWL's. Wonder if I can just turn 'em in.

    Should be a blackwall and whitewall side but I would confirm.

    The ones you see on mine are the LE's

    Just went out and walked around the truck. No more going over the road or towing until this gets done. It's that serious. Maybe call tirerack today and see what they say. Love the survey results on their site on the Desintation LE2. Noise and wet traction are the most important to me and they look real good there plus on everything else.
