I currently have an '06 Grand Cherokee and purchased my Revo 2's in September of 2014. Since then I've put 35,210 miles on them and while there is some tread left, they are dry rotting and I didn't feel safe with them. Not with the torrential rain we get in South Louisiana. I loved the Revo 1's and went through 2 sets on my Jeep Liberty until she dropped a valve seat at around 350,000 miles.

I had my Revo 3's installed yesterday and so far they feel sublime compared to the 2's they replaced. I don't do much off-roading so I got the P245 65/17's as I'm more of a pavement pounder but need a capable and competent tire.

Again, thank you.

Tim

Oh, forgot a picture...



...and I forgot to mention a $70 rebate via a Visa card when you buy 4 tires. This is good until May 6th for those on the fence.

Glad to hear it. I was a big fan of the 1st REVO, but these are my favorite. Enjoy!

Waking up an older thread but curious if any of you previous posters are still enjoying your Revo 3. Currently running the KO2s and with 53k miles are getting toward the end of their life. While the KO2s weren't bad, I'm looking to try something new. I want to stick with an AT but maybe a little less aggressive
tread. I guess what I'm most curious about is tread life. How are they seeming to hold up?

Yes, I would be interested in hearing about the Revo 3 long-term experience as well!

I ran the original Revo for several years on my 4th gen 4R and loved them, but when they went to the Revo 2 I didn't get very good longevity, so I was looking for a different tire. The Revo 3 had just come out when I needed to replace, but not much was known on them at the time. So I switched to the Yoko Geolander GO15 AT and have had them on just over two years. The Geo is a very good and popular tire with great reviews on Tirerack.com. It is a really good street tire (very good in wet & dry) which has done just fine the times I've been offroad. It also carries the snow rating, which I like as I might get by without having to put chains on if encountering snow (many states will let you go without chaining up if the snow symbol is on the tire).

The Revo 3 is getting really good reviews on Tirerack. It is, however, one of the pricier AT tires out there. And it's still probably a little too new to get a feel whether they fixed the mileage issue many complained about with the Revo 2. It also doesn't carry the snowflake symbol - even though many reviewers said it does well in snow. But the price difference amounts to more than $150 between a set of four Revo 3s and a set of Geos. I'm waiting to see if the price of the Revos comes down and if people make it full distance on these tires. Then maybe I'll consider . . . but until then, the Geo is a fine tire that seems to suit all my needs - hopefully I'll get the full 60k miles out of them.

Well, while we're waiting, the Geolandar A/T is another on my list. Am curious how well it tracks. Not a fan of tires that like to wander while going down the highway. I have to say that the KO2s handled that very well. Do you have any cons at all with the Yokos?

You know, I really don't have any cons yet with the Geolandar. I'm considering it as a very good, all-around AT at a really good price-point. This is with 85% of the driving over the last two years being in usually dry Arizona, but I've also pulled a trailer around Colorado in some storms during that time. They've been on pavement most of the time, a little light offroad here & there and very little actual 4x4 duty.

I've put 22k miles on them since new and they have about 7-8 32nds of tread left. I'm not sure this will translate to the 60k they're supposed to get (a little doubtful), but we will see.

Interesting. Seems like they're wearing a little quick. I have approximately 7/32nds on my KO2s at 53k miles. That's starting at 15/32nds. On 99.9% paved roads. The KO2s have been great but now starting to get loud, hard, and rain challenged. Just wanting to get something more "street", p metric, better rain performance, while staying with an A/T. Who knows, I might go back to the KO2s. I still have a few miles left in these before I have to figure it out.

Yes, it seems a little much wear. They started at 13/32, so six 32nds in 22k = 3,666 miles per 32nd. That only works out to less than 35,000 miles until they reach 4/32! I saved about $160 on them verses a set of Revo 3s, so we'll hafta see if that cheaper price makes sense. (then again I only got 45k on my last set of Revo 2s)

7k on my Revo 3, stock size , 19 ORP. They were good up until about 5k miles and the first rotation. Now theyíve gone to crap. Wearing like crazy, vibes come through steering wheel at 60, super soft rubber when temps are 80+. Almost becoming tacky to touch and you get black on your fingers when rubbing them. Correlates with the accelerated wear after 5k. Almost like they have a nice heavier proper rubber compound on the outside when brand new but itís only designed to last 5k miles. Then youíre outside of Bridgestone 90 warranty and they wonít help you. I even paid to have these re- road forced balance d and the shop said they came back good <10 but something is wrong with the rubber. They pleaded with Bridgestone and company would only offer a 50% prorated discount on 2 tires. I even called and spoke with Bridgestone warranty management, utterly rude response uncaring and repeatedly said not there problem, kept blaming the installer shop since they ďlet meĒ drive it past the 90 day warranty period. I will never own another Bridgestone / Firestone exploding failing product, nor do I suggest you do so. Actually going to buy a used set of stock Dunlopís on CL just to be rid of the vibration caused by that gappy uneven tread design on these revo 3. I canít affords to drop another $1k on fancy tires right now.

WOW!! Thanks for the update, but sorry you had that experience! Don't you just hate when someone won't stand behind their product and also treat you badly in the process (almost like they paid you to use their tires . . .)!?

As stated, I am surely keeping an eye on Revos for when these Yoko Geolandars wear out - so far so good, but it's been mainly on-road and fair weather stuff. On road and pulling a travel trailer has been great with the Yokos, so if the Revo 3s are reported as crappy by others, then I'll just probably stick with the Geos (and if they wind-up getting decent wear/mileage).

I may be in a replacement mode also... I have a '98 with 106k that is running Pathfinder (Discount Tire's in house brand) and I just cannot get them to balance out. I have taken them to several different places to balance (2 different Costco's and 1 Les Schwabb)... all claim the tires are balanced, but they still hop and wobble at speed.
The last shop mentioned that at least one of the tires has a "hard spot" which may have something to do with the hopping. 95% of my driving is on road (yes I know it is sinful), back and forth between Las Vegas heat and northern Utah snow. I would really like to have smooth running tires that will work well in my varying conditions.
So I would appreciate any suggestions!!!

Thank you

I ran the Revo 3's on my GX470 and was ok with them. They were extremely quiet onroad and handled very well, however they spooked me a few times when hydroplaning. Never had them in snow. Offroad they were decent, the tread depth and spacing isn't great for offroad and no real sidewall features for extra grip. Also note, they have no rim protection built in.

I sold the GX and had maybe 10-12k miles (?) on the tires, no unusual wear, no balance issues, no additional noise.

Ran the 255/75r17 Load Range C. If someone gave me another set, I'd take them; I wouldn't buy them again though. Had also run the original Hankook Dynapro ATm's and those tires were 1000X better all around (and they were amazing in the little snows we got here in central NC).

+1 on the hydroplaning scare a few times. Much worse than KO2 or any tire Iíve had. This is in the stock 265/70/17 size and the empty space vertical channels are huge. Like you can fit a pinky in. Water just loads up and lifts you. It doesnít actually channel out the side.
