I got price quotes from eight different places. The quotes ranged from $375 for cheapo tires to $650 for a better brand name tires, the one's I got were the best all around deal I found. It really doesn't matter much as the main goal was to get rid of my old tires that had signs of dry rotting, before an accident happened. So getting Good Year tires with 50,000 mile warranty installed for $444 is an okay deal for me. I don't put many miles on my truck so these tires should last me 5-6 years. That's a pretty long time.
I didn't want mudding tires, as my truck is for street driving only. Like it was stated, different strokes for different folks.
The whole point of my original post was to demonstrate the price difference of buying expensive tires to play in the mud, compared to buying regular tires.
