DH just bought 4 new Goodyear tires from Walmart. The last three sets he bought from a major tire chain and they only lasted ~40K miles. Hopefully the new ones will be better and last longer. The Goodyear warranty has 60K - so we will have to wait and see.

If you need a set of all-seasons I HIGHLY recommend the Firestone Destination LE2. It's pretty much the highest rated in its class and for good reason. These tires felt glued to the road in the rain, unlike the factory Continentals. The Firestones are rated for 60K miles and have warranty for that long.

I also highly reccomend the Firestone Destination LE2......it's an all season light truck/suv street tire.

I recently put a set on my Ford Ranger 4x4.....I have the 4x4 to pull my skiff out of the water on "less than ideal" surfaces- I don't go "off roading" or "mudding" so these tires work great....

If you do go "off roading" you may want an all terrain tire instead.....

The LE2's are quiet, soft riding, and have fantastic wet traction compared to the absolute junk tires that came on my truck....the Goodyear Wrangler RT/S- which were flat out dangerous in the rain..and only lasted 37k miles.

I had my heart set on Michellin LTX's.....but the Firestone Destination LE2's were much cheaper (have a friend at Tires Plus) and have the same warranty (60k) and ride as soft as you could want in a truck/suv tire. The tread depth is substantially deep...which I'm sure helps in the torrential Florida downpours.

I have a 4x4 pickup (Sport Trac) but I've only used the 4wd for snow so I'm guessing I won't need all terrain. The tires I have now are not a set, bought 2 one time and 2 another so next time around I want to do it right.
