I vote neither, but I have heard nothing but good from both people I know that have had them. But according to tire rack and some of the bigger members on here that I know use the firestone at's on their trucks and f150's then Id choose that. Even though they have had problems in the past, according to tirerack ratings, they are ranked very high.

Firestone, hands down, we put them on most of our work trucks here at my jobsite. They have good traction in all the mud, sand, grime and grit we have here. Not to mention some great road manners, and they are quieter then I expected.

Voted khumos. I'm not too sure about the difference in thread wear, so i couldn't say which one will be better in the long run.

If you plan to stay on asphalt i'd pick the cheapest ones since it won't make a huge difference. I Prefer the khumos, even if the firestones are quieter, because the central band hinders the ability to evacuate greater quantities of water and increases chances to aquaplane (sp?).

I like the looks of the Kuhmos better. I think they would preform the same.
