Are they any good?

I will not cede more power to the state. I will not willingly cede more power to anyone, not to the state, not to General Motors, not to the CIO. I will hoard my power like a miser, resisting every effort to drain it away from me. I will then use my power, as I see fit. I mean to live my life an obedient man, but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors; never to the authority of political truths arrived at yesterday at the voting booth. That is a program of sorts, is it not? It is certainly program enough to keep conservatives busy, and liberals at bay. And the nation free. William F. Buckley Jr.

They're round.

Only have air when mounted.

I have never heard of them, but I only buy made in usa tires. Somethings just arent worth saving $50 on...

That's what I mean. Are they made in the USA? Who knows anything about them?

I have learned my lesson about buying off brand tires.

I put goodyears on the wife's SUV.
I put firestones on my truck.

No experience with your brand Danny, but I would stay away from off brands. Saving a couple of bucks costs you in the long run, IMO.

Looks like they are made in the US but owned by Yokohama. Guess I'll keep looking. Maybe Goodyear or Goodrich.

No more Firestones for me. Me and the Firestone company have parted ways. Looking at Goodyear or Goodrich now. Used to love Michelin, but I'm not sending the French any of my money either.

Prodigy H/T tires are value-priced for the budget conscious driver who refuses to sacrifice traction, performance or long tread life.

Prodigy H/T tires combine a smooth ride with appealing looks at a price that's sure to please.



What are you putting them on?

F150 Sport pickup. Looking for US tires though. This truck only drives about 2000 miles a year, so tires usually get changed from age rather than wear, but I still want my money supporting US jobs.

Go with Cooper Tires! Have had them on my truck for a couple of years and they've held up great and they're made in the USA.

Won't send a dime to the French if I can keep from it. No Target, Total gas, or Michelin tires.

I used to love Michelin tires.

I go with Perellis on my car. I had Starfires, which were replaced by Mastercraft by Cooper, and I thought they were nothing bit garbage. I have Khumos on my truck.

My son in law bought some Yokohama at's tires for his truck. They lasted two years. I bought BF at's four years before he bought his. Mine are still good, noisy on the road now , but they still can get me thru the mud and snow.

Not true.

They always have air in them, it's just not pressurized.....

Sorry about that, I just had to.

There's a Yokohoma Plant in Salem Va about 8 miles from where I live.

I have General Tires on my wife's Grand Cherokee, they're owned by continental which is an American owned company. Very pleased with my general Grabber AT2s, great price through Wally World


have always had great experience with BFGs too, great tires, but pricey

I would NOT recomend Mastercraft tires.

We used to put them on our farm trucks. Tread separates from the tire at about 50% wear.
