I need new tires, I can save about 85 bucks per tire by switching to Yokohama tires. Any experience with Yokohama? Should I stick with the Bridgestone Dueler?

how many miles did you get out of the Bridgestone?

The Bridgestone ride rough because they have a high tread wear rating (600) but hold up well for a 22" tire, you will get a smoother ride with say a (400) tread wear rating, but the tires will not last as long because they are softer.

I have the 305/40-22 Parada Spec X on the truck and they're great. Quiet and wearing well. I didn't have complaints about the Bridgestone's but the Yoko's were cheaper and in stock at Discount Tire.

I have had Yokohama's on another one of my vehicle's and they were a great tire. The rode nice, wore great, and did well in rain and snow. They were a little noisier than the OE Michelin's though. I bought them for the same reason you are thinking of, good price. My advice would be to pull the trigger and buy them. I believe you will not be disappointed.

Hope this helps.

I have had nothing but "TOYO's" on my Denali's and Escalade, and STS-V. Toyo Proxes ST II are the current offering they make for theSUV's and I love em in 22's. Great ride, grip, no noise, and a lot less than oter brands.

The Bridgestones have 33000 on them now and I am hoping to get to 35000 out of them. Thanks for the recomendations.

yokohama's are a good tire. I have them on my S550 and they ride better and quieter than the stock ones in my opinion.

I am running Falken tires for about 10k miles now. They're GREAT! Good for the $$$ too. I recommend them without a doubt.

That is what I have on mine, I and they do well and thread design it nice.
