Thinking of going with these on the 94 9C1 Workhorse. What do you guys think?

If you don't need the v speed rating, look into the Michelin defenders.

V speed rating wears out faster than s t or h. The Michelin defender Carries a 90k mile tread wear warranty. Starting the first of November, there is a $70 mail in rebate when u purchase any 4 Michelin tires.

Don't go with the defender, I've had SO many complaints about them. A lot of people say that on a dry road, the defenders sound like your driving on a wet road. Our shop(and the other 60-something Sullivan's) are having Defenders with high road force and lateral run-out. NOT typical Of Michelin. Disappointing, because the defender looks nice and carries a high manufacturers warranty... I think Michelin has some quality control issues now, we are seeing more and more of them with lateral run-out issues and "out of Round" characteristics.. As for the Serenity's, I've never personally installed a set so I can't say much about them, but Bridgestone overall makes a good product. I'm becoming more of a Good Year fan now..

That's odd... we've sold probably a hundred sets of denfenders without a single complaint.. I'm the opposite.. I hate Goodyear lol.. I have Michelin Energy LX4's on the caddy.

Don't get me wrong, Michelin makes an awesome tire, but the "cheaper" ones like the Defender, Harmony, and the "club" tires aren't nearly the same quality as the more expensive ones(even though the "cheaper" michelins are still pricey)

Yeah I know. But between two B's in the house, any discount helps. Laughing

Where are the tires in question made? I know the Riken Raptors are technically a tire "made" by Michelin, but it's actually some subsidiary in SE Asia, IIRC. BFGs are made my Michelin technically too, but of course BFG makes great (All Terrains) and shitty (KDWs, Rugged Trails) ones! I think it depends on the model of tire mostly as opposed to the brand, just like with cars...allowing for some discrimination depending on whatever your personal past experience with a brand may have been, of course.

Michelins are made all over the world.

Bfg aren't made by Michelin, just owned by them. They also own Uniroyal and a few other off brands, most major brands own no-name companies also, but does NOT mean its all the same quality! Those Riken Raptors are junk. I've had VERY good luck with Jetzon Innovation tires. Timmy fattened a set of whitewall Jetzon's on his Fleet. They're inexpensive, but ride nice and are pretty quiet. Thin sidewall, but never had any issues and I've ran several sets of them. I believe they are owned by Cooper(which suck) but again, that does not mean equal quality.
