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.

I have seen Michelin and BFG's get great milage. Rotate them tires.

I'm going on 100K on goodyear wranglers. I think rotation & maintain tire pressure is the key to long lasting tires.

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! Must have been some sort of cost reduction there or something! mad

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.

    • Well I had a little project that we found after buying our camper used. It had a leak in the back corner which 3 other same type campers in our camp ground had in the same spot. I sealed the roof a few years ago but have not had time to tackle the soft floor in that corner. Spent one weekend ripping out to find out what I had and a 3 day weekend repairing it. Had to build boxes as new supports to tie into the good wood past the rotted area. Really glad there were two metal frame supports under that end as I could span them with the new wood. Re-insulated and put new plywood down and it's looks great. Now my wife doesn't have to worry about getting into her side of the bed without going through the floor!        
    • Well I guess I could close the loop on my water heater since I finally had time to look at it.     I haven’t pulled the element yet but have filled the water and run through everything with my meter.  I’m 99% sure it’s the element.  I have 120V to it and it Ohms out at 2.  I figure that’s the water giving me that reading since the elements should Ohm out at 10 or more.  Basic rule I learned in shop: Power to the load; load don’t work; load is broken.  Looks like a $15 part.   What I did enjoy learning is getting the propane part of the heater operational.  Never had that before since the wire harness was apparently always disconnected from the ignition module.  I plugged that in and she fired right up.   Now to get my sealants put on tomorrow and clean and lube the bumpout gaskets.  I bought some LED light bulbs to try also.  And time to get a bigger TV installed in the main living area.  That 13 inches just doesn’t cut it with my eyes anymore!
    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
