ive always thought people who dont buy certain tires because of tred design/pattern to be interesting. because do many people here or in general ever look at someones tred design and say "**** that a clean look design?" i don't...im just asking to see if other really do consider this....just my .02.

Don't like the squiggly tread design, I had it on for a about 2-3 weeks before going back to the the Coopers.

Might be vain, but I do look at the thread design for aesthetics to make the vehicle look good, in addition to performance. Walking past other suv's, I do admire what other tires look like. It's like 2 identical beautiful twins, 1 wearing a nice outfit and Christian Louboutin shoes and the other in a nice dress but in Keds.

I had had the LTZ's and decided to go with the Parada's. I felt handling was slightly better, but the speeds I drive every day, the LTZ were just as great, able to take the exit ramps at good speed, gripped and handled well in nearly all conditions I drive. There was no drastic improvement in the Parada's in my mind .. . but the aesthetics was lost with the Parada. Did not hesitate to may the extra cost to get it back for a tire that handles great on most surfaces, if I do venture off road soon, in snow which I head up to CO often, or dry roads which TX has, and nt to mention a great tread life ...

BTW - I even check out the tread design for the tires I buy for my cars too, but performance and handling is a bigger weighted factor - but definitely tread design is a factor.

May be we need another poll - who purchases tires based on thread design ....

For the OP, just go with the Paradas - should be good for your purposes.

Go with the LTZs... drove my RR up to Tahoe 15+ times last season (when there was actually snow) and it handled as good as could be expected. And I like the tread design too :)

I actually look at tread design as well... One thing that I've learned over my many years of driving along with 22 years of plowing snow, is that you can't always trust or go off of what the ratings/reviews say. And as mentioned, depending on your primary vehicle use, looks are an important factor as well.
