2019 Trailhawk Elite 2.0T Olive Green Metallic Pearlcoat
If you like those Falkens, you'd really like the Toyo A/T III's that I've been running on mine...😎
I would recommend for you being in Michigan, and your all around daily driving conditions and preferences, I would recommend something like the Yokohama GO15. It's an excellent "street friendly" A/T that's far superior to the Destination A/T's that you're driving on now. They're a perfect choice for your 3 season set, though they are still very capable in full winter conditions, and are 3PMSF rated for winter driving. I have run several sets of them on different vehicles and would running them now on my Trailhawk, but I wanted something a little more aggressive. They're a great mid level all terrain, with a great balance between on road performance and capabilities...😎Curious how these Flakens or your Toyo A/T III’s (seen you advocate for those Toyo’s in other threads to, so very curious about them) are for daily road driving compared to stock Destinations?
I find the stock Destinations ride nicely on the road for daily driving. Comfort with light utility was my primary reason for switching to our Cherokee TH - so normal driving comfort is my primary concern (bad back and neck).
I wont ever do any driving on rocky surfaces/trails. Might eventually get out on dirt trails, fire trails in state parks, etc in Michigan…but nothing like mountain or out west off-roaring. So having a good and comfortable daily driving tire outside of winter that can still hit basic trails, seasonal roads, fire roads in state parks, etc is what will be most ideal for us.
Next year in the winter I plan to get a set of true winter tires (Michelin X-ICE). However, when my Destinations eventually need replacement (still great at 37k miles), or if I decide to switch to something better earlier, I am curious as to what options to consider for my needs. Thanks to any that reply.
Just for a comparison, here's the Toyo‘s, which as far as street manners, I don't put them far behind the Geolanders, but the capability is next level under all conditions. The "more aggressive" A/T tires have improved dramatically in just the last few years with their balance of excellent offroad capabilities and street manners. If you did want to go a little more aggressive, then the Toyo‘s and the Falkens are both very good choices, and they sure look cooler on your Trailhawk. I couldn't be happier with the Toyo‘s, and after this winter, they have proven themselves to be the best A/T in all conditions and surfaces that I've ever run...😉😎Excellent. REALLY appreciate your knowledge in this forum and this suggestion. Saving that link now!
Which ones are you running???😎I’ve been daily driving these tires everyday now since I’ve posted that and I can say, there is absolutely no road noise from these, they feel smooth and they’re great, commuting on the interstate for work and seeing how well they handled really sold it for me and I can say I’ll most likely be sticking with these in the future
