Jack, they look like decent tires & the price definitely seems good. I'd try them out.

I've got a set of Turanza LS-Ts on mine and I them.
They are an all season tire rated #2 behind BFGoodrich Traction T/A T.

If the rest of the bridgestone line is as good,I'd definately buy 'em!!!

I'd stick with the Bridgestones. Just got a set of Traction T/A'* for the T&C and my mom LOVES them. Also have a set of Advantage +'* on my little mazda and love them as well. Quiet on the road yet they wear like steel.

To all you guys interested in better traction:

GET THEM SIPED. It will not void your tire warranty (at least it won't if the shop that installs your tires does it....ask, mine is fine).

Siping gives you thousands more tiny gripping edges for better bite in the wet, snow, or ice. It also allows the tire to cool faster in the summer, increasing tread life.

I recommend siping to all my Jeep buddies who buy a strictly mud tire for their rig, it really does help them last longer.
