    I have had good luck with Hankook Dynapros on two trucks. My wife's suburban got 65k out of them.

    Hey Thanks for all the help everyone! I am finally narrowing it down.
    It sounds like there alot of great tires to choose from.
    I really appreciate all of Your input.

    Put Michein LTX A/T 2 on y F250 last year. Couldn't be happoer. Nice quiet ride, haven't had any trouble in mud or snow. Was reall impressed with how they handle ice.

    Go to tire rack and do a comparison.

    My Sequoia eats tires. I've had
    Bridgestone H/T (original) ~40k, nothing special.
    Bridgestone A/T Revo ~40k, very quiet at first, good traction, got noisy
    Continental LX something ~40k, nothing special (but were highly rated at the time)
    Michelin LTX MS2, best so far with ~12k (also have them on a Highlander)

    Keith.
    Did You ever find out why the Bridgestone A/T got noisy later?
    Was it the tire or Your vehicle?

    I think it was my vehicle. The treads got "cupped" well before they were worn out. A friend had better luck on a Chevy pickup.

    I've since replaced the shocks and struts, but I read online (?) that Sequoias eat tires.

    On 3rd set of Michelin LTX M/S. First set - 95,000 on 2002 Yukon XL 3/4 ton(110,000 total miles on truck).2nd set pushed just over 105,000 on 2005 Yukon XL 3/4 ton. 3rd set have about 65,000 miles on them - same 2005 Yukon XL (171,000+ on truck). Think I'll get another 30 - 35,000 miles on tires before winter 2013/2014 comes and change again. I use load range "E" and have 8.1liter with 4.10 gears. Lots of highway driving at 70+miles per hour. The tires are spendy but I'm very happy with ride, noise, off road traction and of course milage on tires. I push them to the limit mileage wise and change before the snow flies here in Wisconsin.

    Good luck with your decision
