Having a new set of pathfinders put on today.
From what I can tell, it's a tire that is made exclusively for Discount Tire. Not the greatest tire, but not the worst tire I guess.

Anyone else give this brand a try?

I had a set on a pickup for years and stood up well..no flats.. Great mileage. I'd buy again.

I was looking at some from Discount, but haven't fully decided yet. What are putting them on? I'm wondering how the 10ply's are.

I didn't ask about the ply. But I did ask if they were load range E and they said yes.
Going on a 3500 SRW Ram diesel.

The alterain is the only tread they have in the size tire I'm getting. So that will also be a first for me. I've always had highway tread. That tread has always done well for me even in the pastures and other very little time I spend off pavement.

Let me know if you like them. I'm looking for a 2500 ram. I'm not at a must have point yet, so I'll look forward to your review after some miles.

I got them on yesterday. Made my first drive this morning to work (@45miles and open road, so 75 - 80 mph all the way).
Had a little vibration that seemed new to me. But I need to investigate.
The all terrain tread is way more aggressive looking than I would think of a all terrain looking. But not noisy one bit from what I could tell.

I have a set on my Explorer and F150 and like them so far but I've only run a few thousand miles on them so far.

Same here. I know they are made by Kumho or Hankook depending on model you buy. My AT tires from them still looked brand new after 18 months and 20,000 miles. I thought they were great tires especially for the price.

I ended up taking them back and paying more money and getting the Goodyear Wrangler with the Kevlar.
The pathfinders were super slick on a wet road for me. Discounts rating of the tire is bogus, at least in the wet road area.
Pathfinders also took a lot more weight to balance compared to the Goodyear.

Spent more than I wanted to. But been very please with the Goodyears.

Good to know. I ended up taking a chance on a different tire all together. Suretrek Wild Peak RT's. We will see how they hold up, but I do like the looks of them.

Haven't heard of Suretek. Let us know how they do on the wet ramp.
