: Best Replacement Tires for Stock 22"?

My '09 has 53,000mi on it and they're pretty worn. Wondering if I should replace with the stock BGF Duelers that came with it, or if there is another tire that is highly recommended. I live in Michigan, so I need something all-season. I'd love to hear what other owners replaced theirs with and if they'd recommend the tires they bought.

I replaced my tires with Nexen Roadians. It is a softer rubber it really grabs on the turns. It has a better ride and the design really cuts through the water on rainy days. I am running 285/45/22.

The stock Bridgestone is the hardest tire making that the longest lasting tire you can buy in the size range, softer tires will ride better, and handle better too, BUT they will last about 25% shorter in terms of miles driven. If you want a good snow and dry tire look at the Bridgestone Revo, if you want the longest lasting tire stay stock, if you want your truck to handle great add Hotchkis sway bars, nothing better. :)

I use Toyo Proxes ST ll....They ride so much smoother than the Duelers. Handle great on country roads and great in rain or snow. Might not last as long but I prefer the smoother ride. jmho

I really like those tires. Who makes it and what model is it? They are perfect to hook the toys up and head to the river.

The OEM Dueler HL's are excellent tires. They're all seasons, so there is a better tire if you live down south and maybe you need a dedicated winter set if you're way north. If you're a guy in Indianapolis like me wanting an all season tire that handles well yet still can get through some snow on occasion the Dueler cannot be beat.

I just got the Yokohama Parada Spec-X they're really good at a great price. I previously had the Firestone Destination ST, I wanted those again but they were on back order and ended up getting the Yokohamas.

I just had the same parada spec-x put on my escalade, and I too originally wanted the firestone destination ST. The parada were originally on back order as well but somehow my tire guy got a set in last minute and i lucked out.

I have no complains of the parada.

Thanks for the advice everyone? I actually thought I was buying an '09 with "questionable" tires, but ended up getting a '10 with good tires so I should be set for now.

Are the parada spec-x considered an all-season? Discount tire direct reports them as an 'Aggressive design for SUVs and light trucks', while others specifiy all season in this same descprition area. Can anyone comment on their use during winters? My stock tires look like they're getting near replacement time, they are also starting to squeal a bit when making sharper turns.

Thanks

Their all season. I had them on my 04 a few years ago during the winter on OEM 22's and while they are not snow tires they got the job done. Have them now on my 07, really great tire for the price.

I have the Nitto 420s on mine with 22's and they are horrible in the snow! They look great and are awesome in the summer but get a little snow under them and you will be all over the road. I will be replacing them at some point before the fall. They have about 10-12k on them if anyone is interested. Wheels going too but one has a bend in it. I have driven on it since last fall without issue. I am having a horrible time deciding on what tires to get. So I like this thread.

Sorry to hear that. I live in Denver, CO and have the nitto 420's and they did just fine in the snow this past winter... For snow I hear the Blizzak DMV1 tires are by far the best though.
