the fuzion, if that is the bridgestone, is a good tire. i actaully put those on my cobra after having goodyear eagle f1's and bf gforce ta's, and i was happier with the overall street durablility of the fuzion. the others were softer and stickier, but didnt last half as long. overall it is a good street tire for a daily driver.

Goodyear Eagle F1's are one of the most expensive tire out there, kinda overrated if you ask me, 4 tires for $280 sounds good to me, check out the BFG G-Force Sports, they are good performance tires and decent priced, I work at Americas Tire Co. and we sell alot of the G-Force's and haven't had any complaints yet.... also pretty much any Michelin is a gonna be a good tire

if he just needs a low profile tire, the fuzion is perfect. it isnt a super high performance tire, which i highly doubt he needs one, but it has the appearance of one. for a daily driver, the fuzion is a better tire. the bf wont last half as long

www.tirerack.com probably has the best prices on tires...

My dad runs the fuzions on his 3.2CLtype-S and gets them for $275 from a local shop so $280 is just as good.

if i recall the fuzion is a high end bridgestone made with a different material.....

I will vouche for the wear on the BFG's, they don't tend to last long... but then again its a performance tire, most of them aren't gonna be able to get great mileage out of them, I have 32" BFG All-terrains on my truck so low pros aren't my specialty haha, I had a guy come in to my work that had 108,000 on his AT's, love truck tires :)

i have had lots of sets of low pros, but i also have 35" bf muds on my truck, and my dads truck has the 33" muds (he had the 33" at's before though.

Yeah the muds look aggresive, but for mostly street driving they ****, depending on the vehicle they kill your ride, IMO the All-Terrains are the best bang for the buck all around, they do great in the snow too

they look a lot better than the AT's to me. i think i am maybe going with the interco iroks next though. i was going to put AT's back on my dads truck, but you couldnt find them anywhere in 33x12.50x16.5. they were on backorder for a long time, plus 16.5 is getting outdated quickly. goodyears ****, interco is too much for him (he hates the noise and ride), pro comps ****, and the BF mud is a good tire, wears ok, and doesnt make too much noise. we were having problems with the ATs wearing weird and getting out of round.

running 275/45r20 zr1s right now. since i'm lowering the truck soon (2/3 drop) i need to get shorter tires to avoid rubbing the fenders in front. going down to 275/35s, not cheap.

$280 is great for any set of 4 tires, i'm looking at $600 for just 2:crap:

what kind of tires are you looking at? my dad is going to have to put tires on his car pretty soon, it will be around 1000 bucks, and those generally last only 15-20k since the fronts are rears are different sizes and you can only rotate them side to side, and it tends to make you stick your foot in it.

We have like 8 of the 33x12.50x16.5 AT's in stock haha, I just put 4 new ones on my girlfriend's dad's truck like a month ago.... depends on where you go I guess.... not much difference in the 16's and 16.5's, different degree of taper on the drop center and that half an inch is the only difference, don't know why they had to make them and confuse everyone

looking for 275/35 r20s (27.58" tall). would like to run them all around, but the 275/45r20s (29.74" tall) have lotsa tread left, only ~7000 miles on them.

getting the ride lowered soon, need to have at most 28" tires in front and 30" in back to avoid rubbing. cheapest 275/35r20s i've located locally go for ~$300 each with all the road hazard goodies

just go with the same size all the way around. it will be cheaper in the long run because you can rotate them properly, not just side to side.

Or you could get a tire with a higher tread wear ;)

or get four matching tires with a higher tread wear, then really get the most out of your money.

if he lowers his truck and it sits level, putting a larger tire in the rear will give it a little rake. i didnt diss your style, i said it was personal preference.

I still never said it would be a rake
and just about every single stock truck out there sits lower in front.

listen up *******. no matter what the **** he drives, if it is leveled out or not, if you put a larger tire in the rear, it will have rake.

rake- when the front end sits lower than the rear end.

Im quite aware of what a rake is
If you actually read before you posted you would see that i said the majoroty of stock trucks come with a rake. When you load the bed it levels out.

Does kuhmo make truck tires?

They're fairly aggressive for the money, not real noisy, either.

I don't doubt goodyear and firestone and all those companies are great tires, but they're so **** expensive.

the only complaint i have about goodyears is their MTR mud terrains. terrible tires.

And back to the original post, are the 17's the factory wheels?

I don't know about anymore, but a few years ago, atleast, 18" tires were gaining popularity to the point where they were less expensive than 17" tires (ID of course), i remember thinking about 17" wheels, but the tires were almost as expensive as 19" tires.

if you didnt understand or meant something different, then whatever, admit it, dont be a little girl about it, but you cant say that he wont have more rake, its just a fact.

17"s are getting more popular at the moment. they are forcing 16.5"s out of production in 4x4 stuff.

As far as I know they don't make any AT type of tire, we put Kumho 795's on like small 2wd Toyota trucks but they are no where near aggresive, just remember you get what you pay for, and after being involved in the tire business I will pay for the better tire, I don't trust some of those other tires on my vehicle goin 80+ MPH

16.5" wheels are goin out of style, I actually think 15" wheels are becoming outdated, as far as 4x4 I see more 20's on lifted superduty's then I thought I ever would.... personally I don't like the style

i am not saying that you said anything about rake. if he does what you were talking about though, running a tire with a longer tread life and running the different sized fronts and rears, then he will have rake.

i said something along the lines of running four of the same size so you can rotate them properly and get a longer life out of them.

you responded with how about just running a tire with a longer tread life. that supports the idea of running larger rear than fronts.

i said it wasnt my style and some other stuff.

you said dont rag on my style.

i said rake was personal preference

you *****ed some more




thats about how it went down.

good choice. it might be worth it to have your car aligned too and to rotate them every 3-5k. once low pros get worn weird they dont like to even out.
