    i had a previous thread on here about "what tires i should get", and from that i was going to go with the General Grabber AT2. But i was just at the tire store by my house and the guy gave me a quote for the HTS's instead of the AT2. I looked on tire rack and they get really good ratings...but dont have the aggressive look as the AT2's.

    Does anyone have the HTS's and are they worth it? Or should i go with the AT2's?

    i want the AT2's but they are so expensive. better prices online but shipping is killer. my local shop is charging 142 for them. What local shop (ie pep boys, tires plus, etc...) would you go with for best tire prices?

    I saw those AT2s in my local tire warehouse when I was getting my snows put on, in person those tires look definitely worth the $$.

    Just put a set of AT2 on my Tacoma about a month ago and they are great. Tire Rack.com had them for $122.00 plus shipping which all together they were about 142.00. The best I could find local was around 165.00.

    AT2s -- if you balk at the price, look up Cooper STTs - 225/tire on the shore... :(
