I have heard the same thing about the SA's but I find it hard to believe that they could really be much heavier than BFG's. But I don't know anyone that has had experience with both yet.

I installed tires at Sam's for a while. We had Goodyear Wranglers brought back to us more than any other tire due to seperating tread, bulge in sidewall, or just unhappy with ride quality. Only one Michelin was brought back while I worked there, and it was obvious that the driver had hit a curb with it. Only Michelin or BFG's for my truck.

Looks like I'll probably be going with the Wranglers. I was going to get them this week, but after my wife's monte SS needed rear struts, rear tires, and a cam sensor at the tune of $850 or so, I'll have to wait a couple more weeks. Thanks for all of the replies.

Chevy08Bud:

I put the Fortera Silent Armor's on our 4wd Yukon XL about 25,000 miles ago - my observations......

1 - treadlife has been very good, little to no off road driving little to no 4wd except occasionally on a boat ramp
2 - very quiet, especially compared to OEM (can't remember what they were, I think Michelins)
3 - excellent traction on dry roads and in rain - only driven on ice a few times, no sliding but no speed nor rapid acceleration either
4 - no significant change in gas mileage, if any
5 - I will buy these again, no question

I purchased mine at Discount Tire. A tip no matter which tires you choose - when I bought mine, Discount Tire had different prices by zip code on their internet site. My were on sale (about $30 or $40 less per tire) across the state (though 300 miles in Texas) so I printed the other location's price and took it to my local store - after a short discussion, they honored the price which was better than anywhere else.

I've had two sets of Bridgestone Dueler AT's on my Chevy Z71. They ride really well, are very quiet, have white lettering, very cool looking tread pattern. I don't do alot of mud either, but this winter I took a "shortcut" home one day down an old gravel road after a snow. Nowhere to turn around so I kept the hammer down through about 20" of snow in places, and it crawled right on through. I'd say I was only 50% tread at the time, also.
