I went out shopping this morning. stopped at Dunn first, and talked to the guy (who also owned a 94 ranger) and he suggested the tires he has, but, they looked more like go cart tires to me. so i asked if they had anything comparable to the bfg at ko's and he said he knows of a tire, that he can order but none in the store, so he says these phantom tires at General Grabber AW2 and quoted me a price of $121 for 245/75/16 he also went on to say, that the 265's would fit, now see im not sure, alot of your fols say they will fit, however talking to numerous people the past few days, some say they will fit, others say not a chance. so, i figured id go in the middle, for the 255 size.
anyways, i stopped at good year, and the old dued behind the counter gave me the impression that any "off road" tire is no good. I looked at the wrangler silent armor tires, they looked better online in my opinion. and their out of my price ranger, and yes redneckstone, im out of work, doctors orders till further notice, moeny is a WEE bit tight. so, then i went to sears, they have the bfgs for $150, in the 245 range, so i wrote that down, and looked at a couple other tires in their limited selection, personally i thought they were a bit pricey myself.
I looked at my tires in the store, (the old dude at good year recommended them) they look better in the store than they do on my truck... figure that one out... anyways he tried to push those pretty hard, saying how great they are, a simple "i have em they suck" ended that. heh...
So, i came home with all my notes, and stuff and hit up google and tire rack, tire rack so far as been a real asset for comparing tires, they offer good pics of the tires and stuff, anyways, i found the tires the dude at dunlop suggested (the ranger guy, who agreed that the rts tires suck, in fact there was ANOTHER ranger guy there getting new tires (bfgs) with an 00 and also concurred that the rts tires suck heh, kinda like a mini ranger meet, ya im rambling)
ok, so heres the tire, and it looks very similar to the at ko's and about $100 cheaper per tire:
I havent seen them in person yet, but they have good reviews and their right in my price range (yes zach im a cheap sob) so, ya, input is welcomed.
