Question What tires??

I am in need of some new tires on my Taco, so after Christmas I plan on purchasing a set. But I'm not really to familiar with tire types. All I know is I want some white lettered tires with a slight bit of a deeper thread to them(not for off roading, just looks). Right now I have the stock rims on my taco and I'm not wanting to do anything with those yet, just new tires. I am also not wanting them to be super expensive. I mean it is right after Christmas and I have a GF and her bday is on new years eve(so i will b brooke ).

Any help would be much appreciated. Links and pics would be amazing!!!!

Buy her a set of tires then!

I think you just need to buy her a set of tires. Then, when they don't fit anything she has.....

I have the Michelin LTX AT2 tires. Look good, ride nice so far, but they fail one of your objectives. They are anything but cheap.

I just bought Nitto NT420's about a month ago

I am very happy with them. Outstanding performance, excellent wet & dry traction. And best of all, not very expensive. I was running BFG G-Force tires, but they were a $100 more per tire than the Nitto's. Also the ride comfort is better on the Nitto's than the BFG.

http://www.nittotire.com/#index.feature.street

I found Goodyear offers the best deal on tires. With FREE lifetime balance/rotate & road hazard.

I looked at tirerack.com, but after shipping and installation they were $40 more per tire. And road hazard was extra with tirerack.

And the way I pickup metal debris, I have to have road hazard. I'm doing my part picking up crap on the roadway, so you don't have too.

Nitto NT420

one thing about tires there's nothing cheap about them.. I like the nitto terra grappler. you can get all 4 tires delivered to your door for about $509.00 from discount tire direct on ebay. Free shipping. That not cheap but that the best prices i found and its way better than the 888.00 price i got from the offroad shop, or the $1100.00 for the BFG's.

$236 mounted and balanced for 265/75/16 ten ply (load range E). The guy allowed me $75 apiece for my stock BFG Rugged Trail four ply tires less than 1000 miles.
I've never regretted buying an expensive quality tire like a Michelin, but I've many times regretted going the cheap way.
