I had Goodyears on my '91 and now my '96 Explorer and would not use anything
else. Got about 65K on my last set (good considering my driving habits) Do
a little off-road driving (occasional fishing trip or Xmas tree hunt) and
find these tires a good match for both.

Stephen,

I can offer my experience from managing a construction company with a
fleet of 22 trucks: 1. Firestone tires will *never* be found on one of
them! 2. Goodyear Wranglers are only "ok", but are too expensive for the
product - I've been disappointed with the tread life. 3. Best value I
believe are Michelin, although we have never had a set of BFG's except
as OE. For a quiet ride and good traction ON the street, the M&S are
best. For best traction on muddy construction sites, we go for the
A/T's, although they sing a little on the pavement. To date no
premature (before tread wear-out) failures with the Michelins.

I need to replace the tires on my 1996 Explorer Sport. I think I have
narrowed the choices down to the Goodyear Wrangler Radial AT/S and the
BF
Goodrich Radial All Terrain T/A. Both have reviews stating that they
provide good on and off road capabilities. Has anyone had experience
with
either of these?

Subject: FTE Small - Gas tank pin-hole leaks

The JC Whitney catalog shows two different liquid products intended to
seal up old gas tanks. The idea is that you drop the tank, dump the
stuff in, and rotate the tank a lot, sloshing it all around until it
dries, sealing everything.

On the other hand, at least 25% of the stuff I've bought from JC Whitney
has never worked, and their prices seem higher than where I live (the
most expensive part of the US).
