    im in desperate need of new tires i have been looking into which tire to go with for the past 2 weeks and here are some choices

    discoverer AT3
    General grabber AT2
    Yokohama geolander ATS

    i may just suck it up and go with the duratracs, mavis is offering a rebate for them so it comes out to 174 a tire.

    also i travel about 100 miles highway round trip to and from work, so i dont want a tire that will wear to fast, hopefully ill be getting a commuter car soon

    thanks
    Eric

    my driving is pretty tame, considering its only a 4cly and driving as much as i do i try to get the best gas mileage possible. my thought was i dont want to spend that much on a tire and drive it into the ground, but if it holds up ill consider them
