Have you checked at www. tirerack.com? So far, they have usually had the cheapest tire prices on about any tire I have looked to buy plus lots of good info, good customer service...
My stepson looked for tires for his 97 Eclipse for like 3 months,finally ordered some Kumho street performance tires. He loves them. He's owned that car for almost 7 years, and he says they are the best tires he's had.
Kumho is a Korean tire company( I believe) and is apparantly starting to climb in to the American Market. I'mgoing to need tires by winter which could be next month here in Colorado. I'm looking at the Kumho KL78 all terrain. Tire rack has a suvery chart of a whole bunch or tires, like 20 or more.Kumho is in the top ten. Might appear to be somewhat of an traditional tread pattern by the pic, but I guess they are doing something right. They are higher up the list than BFG ko78 I believe. Also, I have Medalist Traction King on my 77 PowerWagon and love them. Medalist is the economy company of BFG. BFG is the midrange tire company and Michelin is the top end tire company of the three.
