OK, I need 265/70/R15 for my '04 Frontiier XE 4WD. I've narrowed it down to:

1. P265/70R15 110T Goodyear® Fortera® SilentArmor® @$148.00ea

2. P265/70R15 110T BFGoodrich® Long Trail T/A® Tour @$130.00ea

Currently I have the BFG LT T/A and they have gotten 72K miles on them since new. I just bought the Frontier a week ago and need to put a new set on. Any thoughts out there which way to go? The Goodyears seem to be a little tougher. Either would probably do well. The size limits me. These are at Sam's where I get all my tires.

Thanks in advance.

I have had both and got my moneys worth out of the goodyear, the BF lasted for only 20,000 miles, I stay with the goodyears myself.

Thanks Guys/Gals.

So, should I flip a coin? :eek:) The BFGs have 70K on them and still have decent tread. Makes it hard to think about another tire. I wish Michelin LTXs were available in this size. I had 2 sets on a Pathfinder and both got 70K plus.

depends on what u want. goodyear tends to use harder compounds in theyre rubbers which add life but sacrifice traction. bfg uses softer compounds than gy which add traction but sacrifice tire life. id go with bfg myself.

I doubt I'll put 4,000 miles on it a year. Traction is what is important to me.

ive had my yokos for about a year and i like em. the tread design actually does what it says with the stair step grooves kicking out the mud. works really good if you go offroading every now and then
