    My past experience with other Firestone tires is that they suck. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif They'd have to give them to me and mount them for free to even get me into one of their stores. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    The tire looks to be decent, but I don't think they have been out long enough (if they are out yet) for anyone to have them or give them an opinion on them. I personally won't own anything with the name Firestone or Bridgestone on them anymore. I had to Bridgestone tires violently seperate on me in my dads F350. Will never own them again. Soon there after we went to BFG (like all our other trucks) and never looked back.

    I'd just go with the good old BFGs unless you're lookin for something more aggressive?

    Bridgestone/Firestone has repeatedly worked to limit access for ORV users. Just something to think about, you give them your money, they give it to the anti-access crowd, you helped fund yourself out of wheeling oppertunity.

    I would really like to read some more about this. Do you have a link to where more information on this situation exists?

    Thanks,
