    Pros: Great tire; even pulling a 23 foot starcraft. Got over 50K out of the tire.

    Summary:    Wanted to purchase Bridgestone tires but the salesman strongly recommended these tires .. I was reluctant due to the past horror of the Firestone ATX tires from years ago. The salesman swore that the company had done a 180 degree turnaround ... read more
