Need help on a budget tire.

I've toyed with the idea of buying used but after you factor in rotation and balance I save about $300 and that's not worth it considering the cost of the truck. So I'm looking at new rubber and I'm sticking with a street tire for now. My budget is about $600 and the Cooper HTP caught my eyes. I see that many members have AT Coopers but does anyone have any experience with the HTPs?

I've only trusted Americas Tire around me to take care of the rotations and balancing so I'm thinking to go with them. $130 a tire and free lifetime balancing. 65k miles warranty. I'd love to go with LTXs but its just not in the budget. No need for ATs although I would love a set.

I spent just over $700 on my set of A/T tires. General Grabbers are pretty good tires and they're fairly cheap (considering the price of tires that is)

If you're looking for a street tire and you are looking for price in the long run look at the Michelin LTX M/S2.. Bit more up front cost, but will last for many many miles

Or, WWW.treadwright.com
I'd order from then myself if shipping to apo wasn't more than the cost of the tires themselves..

Cooper At3, General grabber, Michelin MS2...going to ask around and get quotes. I don't do a lot of off roading these days with work and school but I haven't had a problem with the stockers even in snow (4WD). I just don't see the need for them right now but I hear you MGM, its a truck and it deserves at least an AT.
