Tires (See thread for sizes) NE Pennsylvania

I just bought 17x8 Dale Earnhardt Jr Octane Rims off VortectRansam on here, I LOVE the wheels and they fit, but the tire size isn't sitting well with me. They are brand new 255/60/17 Pirelli Scorpion ATs.

I am looking to upgrade to 265/70/17s. All-terrains, Mud Terrains....tell me what you have. Trying to stay below $500 shipped.

I'd also consider 31" or 32" All-Terrains or Mud-Terrains for 15x8 steel wheels that I currently have, again trying to stay under $500.

Worst comes to worse, my dad throws the Dale Jr rims/tires on his Explorer and I get my money back.....but I really want to keep these....thanks guys.


Steve.

I was on tirerack.com looking for ya. Here are the General Grabber At2's in a 265/70/17 and they are only $121/each265/70/17 General Grabber AT2's. Comes out too $484 before shipping. The local tire shop I go too was only $20 more and that included mounting and balancing. What I would do is print out the tirerack.com page and go to a few tire shops and see what they will do for you.
