      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Longest lasting Tires on for a 01 Silvarado

Recommended Posts

What brand of tire is the best to put on a 01 Silverado. I am looking for something that will last long and a tire that is some what aggressive. I will be going to look at tires latter this week and just wanted to get some ideas.

Thanks

That will be the next set of tires on the Tundra. I was not impressed with the H/T's (hypothetical traction) but I have seen the A/T's (actual traction) wear well on just about everything they have been on.

Over 100k on BFG A/T's that's awesome...IMO - Best all around light truck tire. I only seen 35k on my last set of BFG A/T's and replaced that with Michelin LTX M/S. Driving habits...I'm mostly highway and the Michelin LTX M/S are more quiet and smoother ride.

Sooo what woud the M/T stand for? Minnesota Tread? LOL's

How about Maximum Traction?

That makes my M/S tires Maximum Slide.

I have a TON of miles on Michelin LTX AT on a 94 K-1500 Ext Cab short box.

I think the tires will dry rot off the wheels before the tread wears out. I honestly don't recall how many miles are on these tires; seriously. From memory, I think they were put on somewhere around 120K miles and the truck now has just over 200K and there is still probably 1/4 to 1/3 of the tread left.

How long do you want them to last? If you really want long wear then take a look at the Toyo (M-55), BFGoodrich (Commercial T/A All Season or Commercial T/A Traction), Michelin (XPS Rib or XPS Traction), etc. commercial tires. Just have them retreaded when you wear them down.

Anyone ever use Timberline AT's how are they?

We have them on our suburban. They have about 20K on them and are wearing well. We had some Firestone Destination LE's on it previously, and they only lasted about 30K (they were supposedly 60K tires). I'll need tires for my 04 Silverado sometime this fall and I'm leaning toward putting some Timberline AT's on it.

Pretty happy with the stock Bridgestones that came new on my 2006 Silverado... 24,000 miles on it now and thier about shot!

Those are what I'm getting ready to replace on my 04. 72K miles on them and I'm very surprised. I've heard nothing but complaints about the Bridgestones. I must have gotten a lucky set... grin I rotated them every 10K and they still have 4/32nds on them.

BFG AT

Ask Hanson, I think he got over 100k on his last set!

Sure did! Put 70-80k on another set of BFG ATs before I traded that truck off. Not sure how many miles I have on my current BFGs but I'm expecting to hit 100k again. My Sierra will probably fall apart before the tires do, I'm getting close to the 200,000 mile mark on the truck.

So I've had BFG All-Terrains on my pickups for about the last 10 years. During that time, I've had 2 flat tires. One was a nail puncture that went flat in the driveway. The other was a, errr... driving error on the Upper Red Lake ice that broke the bead loose from the rim and resulted in my first tire ever changed on a lake. smile

Anybody try the new Goodyear Wrangler tires wth the silent armour if so are they more quiet than normal?

My truck had these tires on it when I purchased it. For a truck tire they are pretty quiet, don't expect it to be as quiet as a car tire though. It's not the most aggressive tire, but traction isn't too bad. It's not as good on the snow covered lakes as the BFG A/T but don't dissappoint either. Depending how many miles I get out of them I might get them for my next set.

    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
    • Dude, it's ok shes not on here.  Save that for Facebook! 
    • If you want to be happy for the rest of your life make a Finnish woman your wife. 
    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
