    Neither, since according to Tire Rack, those are off road tires. Should be able to find cheaper tires that perform just as well.

    They're both on and off road light truck tires (for small pickups, and small SUVs)...mostly for road though....can handle some light off roading.

    Both 50,000 mile tires...although the Revo is stated to be made of better rubber compound...longer treadwear life. For just a couple of bucks more.

    The Revo is more expensive, the 695 will save me money. I've read some reviews on Tirerack though that say the Revo wears down quickly and once it gets to a certain level, like 20,000 miles on it, it no longer has any snow traction. Any truth to this?

    The 695 would save me about $100, but would the Revo really be better for the terrain I'll be in?

    Ugh, decisions decisions

    Ah, I see, cool. They're both pretty well rated. I'm not a fan of white letters on the sidewall, they're a pain to keep clean. I'd save the money and go with the 695. It's a Rav4, you're not going to do any real offroading anyway.

    I was reading that the Revo had a longer tread wear rating. Based on experience I think all Bridgestones wear rather quickly.

    The tread on the 695 looks good, I think Im too biased as a passenger car tripletred owner to be objective, seeing the forsta(sp) tripletred makes me want to jump at and scream that.

    Yeah, I probably will, it will save me $100 compared to the Revo's.

    Why spend the extra money for off-road tires when your vehicle probably won't make it off the pavement?

    I saw your other thread and know you're looking for control in cold eastern weather but seems there are other tires that'll offer that without spending money for extra rubber you won't need.

    Same decision I've faced every time I buy tires but I travel some really poor gravel roads and mean to get off-road every weekend (but rarely do).

    What would you suggest then?
