    alright, its that time again, when i am in need of a new set of tires. i want something with an agressive tread that i can run through a snowy vt winter, but also something that has good tread life.

    my max i can spend per tire is something like $170

    these tire will be mainly for show, thats why i want them agresive, but will also have to be able to handle the occational offroad journey

    i like the bfg all terrains, but they are to damn expensive:mad:

    so i am requesting all you guyes im put--thanks

    I was watching TireRack.com for awhile and jumped on a set of BFG M/T KM2s one day when the specific size I wanted (305/70R16) dropped in price from $234 per tire to $173 per tire. No idea why, and the price was back up the next day.

    Best advice is to pick what you like, be patient, and keep your eyes open for a deal.

    I just got a set of Cooper Discovery ST's today, and they were $130 a tire,spent $524 total with 4 tires and mountaing/balancing. They are badass tires. Plus, they are studdable.

    A/T Dueler Revos are on clearance most places as the new version is coming out soon or is out already.

    You can probably score a set for well less than your budget.

    im looking for somthin a little more agressive then the duelers of the hankook tires, but i do like the st's. I had a set of the st's come into the shop for a four mount and balance, and we had a real hard time balancing them, idk why--did anyone else who had this tire have a tough time??

    im thinking, just thinking, only thinking, of going with a set of super swamper interco tires, all 4 would be around $530. And the extra money i have left i would buy 2 cheap studded snow tires for the winter. i like the agressive look of the mud tire, but i know that i won't get to much life out of them, any of you guys know how much??

    Nope. They are as smooth as butter on the highway, and throw mud hundreds of feet into the air. :eek:
