Bridgestone Dueler Revo 2

After a lot of internet research I settled on the Revo 2 tires for my 1999 Ranger 4x4 size 265/75/16. I was really looking forward to the combination of traction and mileage everyone was talking about. Well, to make a long story short, I spent most of the day at America's tire trying to get them to balance. They did it three times including a sophisticated final road simulation balance process. The slight vibration never went away. The truck was glass smooth before it went in there with fairly worn tires so I don't think it was anything to do with the truck. I finally gave up. They are taking off the Revos and putting on Cooper Discoverer ATPs in the next few days. It was probably just a bad one or two tires, but I just didn't want to wait for new ones to be shipped in only to find out they didn't work either. I will say the guys at America's tire couldn't have been nicer or more willing to work with me. I even offered maybe there was something wrong with the truck and they said no, they didn't think so, it was the tires. I have never had this problem with this truck before, never even had to have tires rebalanced after initial installation until a lot of miles later. Anyone else have a problem getting the Revos to balance?

Honestly I hate my Revo 2's, granted they are only the third set of tires. I'm very disappointed in the tread life. My Toyo Open Country A/T's were only replaced due to age. I will be getting another set of Toyo's once these Revo 2's are done.

I had a set on my truck and no issues with them. I was mad I couldn't find any to replace them. No balance issues and I got well over 80k with them. Rotate every 5k and kept them inflated to the door sticker. Great traction.

They are pretty crappy, never had them but I've put lots of them on for people and they dont really seem to hold up to well.

The tires could have been a bad batch. I personally stay away from Bridge stone/Firestone. Kudos to America's Tire because I've heard stories about them and none are even in my area.
