    I like the look of BF Goodwrench A/T's, and I've heard a lot of good about them... But I haven't gotten any for my truck yet cause Discount tire in my area wants $250 each, and I don't have a 1k to put into tires right now. The ones on my truck are in good condition, but just don't have the look!


    Anyone got favorite tires that look good and do well both on and off road?
    Or do you know where to get good deals on new tires more specifically around Lindale / Tyler maybe as far as Dallas, TX?

    Oooh good idea...... That's why I made this post! :rolleyes: So people like the guy above you can let me in on places that I can SAVE Money!!!!

    Or... Did you mean "how about Save UP Money".... So that I could then go blow the money I saved up on tires at an overpriced store when I can probably get the same tires for less somewhere else. < That would not be saving money.

    Go to Goodyear store, get a Goodyear cc, get 40.00 off instantly, get a 160.00 mail-in rebate from them, join treadlightly for 25.00 and get another 100.00 mail-in rebate from them on wranglers, duratracs, silent armors, etc. Goodyear does 6 months same as cash on the purchase. Did this year before last on Duratracs-traded that truck in on the one I have now and late in 2011 did the same thing on Silent Armors. Got 265/70/16s for 900.00 mount/balance/lifetime free rotate drive out after instant rebate, no tire disposal fee since I took old ones with me, no valve stems because I have TPMS & no road hazard warranty because I can use same money to replace a tire if need be. Got the 160 back and net of 75 from treadlightly so 900 - 235 = 675 and sold my old tires for 20.00 + 2 smoked briskets which is worth 40 at least so final cost was a bit over 600 for 4 50k tires. Already paid them off with tax rebate so done and no interest on their cc. WIN!
