    Im in need of new tires, but they are pretty expensive for good looking tires that i know of. Are there any suggestions for a good looking tire that is not too expensive that will fit the stock wheel? I am looking for white walls.

    ^^ Haha

    I've hear some positive feedback about this company if you are looking for cheap tires. Also check your local craigslist for lightly used ones

    Well, not looking for while walls, but just white letters. Not sure what you would call that. I would not be buying used tires, and I would not get bottom of barrel, but I thought that there was users here that knew a good deal about tires and new a good brand. I like the look of BF Goodrich AT, but they are expensive.

    sometimes you gotta bite the bullet and pony up some bucks...you get what you pay for and tires are something you dont want to skimp on

    I'm sure somebody will chime in with brand new tires that are a good bang for the buck. I just haven't researched all the tires because I've already decided what my next tire will be. Sorry for misunderstanding your desires.

    I have Nexen Roadian HT tires on mine. They were on the truck when I bought it. I would rather have BFG's, but these were brand new. I have 8K miles on them now, I am guessing they are good to 30 or 40K before I replace. The only complaint I have is they tend to shake a little when cold. Warmed up they are fine. Not sure what they would cost since I did not put them on.

    i have the bfg at's look at discount tire direct, bide your time but not to long dont run on unsafe tires. that being said my at's are looking to be lasting a very long time 30,000 on them and they look brand new. i rotate about every 10,000. and i have a life time alignment so she is always in spec. those guys at the alignment shop hate me.

    Yeah, I guess tires are just more expensive for trucks than I thought.

    My tires were $504 installed OTD at Firestone. That's not a bad price at all, I don't think.

    People are going through tough times the last couple years, we all know that, but some things you really shouldn't go TOO cheap on. Think about it, your family or at the very least you will be riding in that vehicle. You want decent tires on it.
