Not true - DRW looks MUCH better!

Only thing I learned from this thread is that some prefer wide rears. [emoticon]

My OEM Firstone AT did not make 30K. The Michelin Defender LRX M/S have 33-34K and are showing lots of tread left. They should make at least 50-60K. I will measure tread depth later this morning. BTW I have the 18's.

The Defenders have 13.5/32's OEM. I am at 9-10/32's. Chris

As I age my hips are getting so narrow I might have to get suspenders!
