    I bought my truck with junk tires, it was Sunday and the only place open was Loves with choice of Aeolus for $300 or Michelin for $600. I went with Aeolus and it looks like I will be replacing them before winter. Total usage I would say will be about 220k. No issues with tires except short life

    That's horrible life out of a drive tire. A good set of drive tires will go 400k easy.

    You can get 200,000 out of a set of recaps. I'd rather have recaps than chinese. They're cheaper and probably run truer.

    My old man ran those on his truck. Lasted just as long as anything else for a lot less. Of course he was in the bush all the time and even expensive tires don't last long in mud.

    I got over 400kout of some cheap Hankook drives. DL07's to be exact.

    I'm on General HD660 right now. About 50k into them. Wearing even so far. Too early to really give an honest over all opinion.

    Hankooks last surprisingly long. But that rolling resistance is rather high on the models i have looked up.

    So a Chinese tire can last as long as a Michelin can nowadays huh? How many dollars are you saving over the life of the tire? Does putting some American or Canadian to work somewhere mean zero..? I do not believe the quality is there for Chinese tires.

    Flame suit on..
