New Tires

I'll be needing new tires soon. What does everyone think about Bridgestone Dualer A/T REVO's. They have a $100 Rewrd card discount with a purchase of (4). I'd be getting the stock size 245/75R/16.

265 = more weight. more weight = worse gas mileage. Also, bigger tire = more money per tire.

Revo is a great tire with the uni-t tech.
I personally like the AT (693) in which the revo is replacing.
It has the uni-t tech as well. They only have a $50 rebate.
Try finding them on-line and having them shipped - I can usually find a lot better deal but I put them on myself though. I believe you will be happy with either A/T

Having them shipped immediatly cancels out that $100 he is looking to get Tires usually cost 100-150 just to ship them.

I can usually find them online cheaper per tire then buying at a local tire shop including shipping.
Don't forget no tax...
www.tires-easy.com usually have good prices but it's better to spend a little time searching for the best price. Sometimes it ends up cheaper buying locally but rarely.

Just put P255/70r15 Bridgestone Dueler A/T (693) on my 97 2wd ranger with Jeep wheels. Tires and wheels fit with a little rubbing on front sway bar at full lock. Had to enlarge the outer center hole on the wheel a little to fit my hub. Once I get the truck cleaned up I will take some pics and post them. The A/T's are quiet and ride great. Tires only took at most 2 ounces of weight and one of them only 1 ounce. Totally recommend

I just had them put on this past saturday. NIGHT AND DAY compared to the stock POS Goodyears. Ride is so much smoother and quieter. And now I dont fishtail when the ground is damp from the morning dew. Thats how bad the GY's were and they still have decent tread left on them w/50k miles. They were just garbage.

Good luck, I think they are great so far!
