OK. I know this should probably be in the wheel and tire section, but I want more people to see it.
It is time for tires. I am looking at the Bridgestone Dueler Alenza. The guy at the tire shop tried to talk me into a set of Yokohama Paradas. I do not want a directional tire, and the Yoko looks like a directional. The last set of directionals I had only got around 30,000 miles. Doing a little research, most people get about 30,000 on the Yokos. The reviews for the Bridgestones are all over the place, anywhere from 30,000 to 80,000 miles. I want a economical high mileage good performance tire.
What are your experiences with tires.
Thanks

Worked for Firestone for 4 years alenzas are the best smooth riding truck highway tire you can get they are a little pricey but well worth it stay away from directionals they chop most of the time and you can't rotate them to get rid
Of it it's likely that there's a sales man perk if he Seles those I only run bridgestones on my truck very nice tires

I fell out of favor with the Cooper Discover ATR I put on two years ago, sidewall on one of them had serious cracking so I dumped em. Ended up with General Grabber HTS, so far so good, very smooth on highway.

Bridgestone Revo2s here. The truck had Alenzas when I bought it. They lasted probably 50K (the truck had 86K when I bought it, the Revos went on at 101K). Nice and quiet, good grip. They'll probably dry-rot before they wear out.

I'm leaning more towards the Bridgestone Alenzas. I can get them for a decent price.

i also have the duelers on my truck. very smooth ridin, and also great in the rain. My dad has directional grooved tires on his ram and he was tellin me how surprised he was the other day when i was cruisin through a downpour in the interstate at about 70, he said he only goes about 50 b/c his hydro's way too bad. only drawback is havin to pay so much, but if you can get a good deal then i would def recommend goin 4 it.

Well I went with the Bridgestones. They are great so far. Very smooth ride. Work good in the rain also. I hope I have them for many, many miles.
