Good Deal on Firestone Transforce ATs.

I have a good deal on Firestone Transforce ATs. What do you think of them for a 2007 3/4 ton GMC Duramax? Those were the tires that were on it when I bought it.

I am not looking for flames, testosterone or $300/ea tires.

If you have another suggestion please feel free to suggest.

Merry Christmas & Season's Greetings,

if they are E rated I say it sounds good. Should have a higher load rating for a 3/4 ton. I have never had them but a few people I know liked them real well.

I assume you are wanting to buy another set like it came with. If that is true and the originals served you well and you were happy with wear and handling then go for it as you will be the one who really knows how well they worked on your truck. There are many options out there and when you get into premium tires from any manufacturer you will pay big bux for any of them.

I have the Transforce on our Sunseeker class C and IMO the are the best tires I have had. My motorhome always seemed to wander around the road on other tires but have not had that problem since I made the switch. I have 2 years and about 13000 miles on them and no signs of wear.

I have transforce a/t's on mine.
Had transforce a/t's on my 05 Silverado as well.
Seem to be a great tire for lots of hi way mileage.

I had them on my F250; best price for a quality tire.

It's what's on my F-350, and two more ride around with me as spares when I'm on the road. (Have never needed then, but "just in case".) Very-good bang for the buck, as long as you're on pavement without snow. They wear very well!

I paid $150 each about three years ago for two, $155 ea for two, two years ago, and they had gone up to $180 each for me this past September. Those are all "out-the-door".

What is your quote for them?

I put Cooper Discover AT/3's on my Ford. Great American made E rated tire for a decent price. They are somewhat agressive to plow my driveway altho very quiet at highway speeds.
