battery brands?

Ok so if Johnson controls makes Wal mart, advance auto and auto zone what should I get?? The battery won't hold a Charge very well anymore so I need to buy tomorrow. Sounds like its a toss up between autozone and advance... Very close in price, but Wally world is a lot cheaper..... Thoughts???....

My wal-mart battery has been holding up fine for a few years now. Just get the cheaper one. It should be fine.

OPTIMA, ran my 3.0 long enough to get me 10 miles to camp when my alt. died while hunting. Put the new alt in and it fired right up with no jup. You cant beat those batteries.

i had a Neverstart (walmart) for a month on my old truck. swelled up and started to leak, never again. I got a motorcraft battery from ford at cost and it worked well. my current truck still has the stock battery from the factory and it works great.

Odyssey are by far the best, but you will pay for it. As far as regular led/acid Costco is the best value by a mile, and comes with a 100 month warranty.
