Those "name brand" prices sound GREAT until you add in shipping and handling, and get them mounted and balanced. You can often get them locally for LESS.

The Dean's are made by Cooper (in most cases) and both of those look like the Cooper tread/sidewall types. Also try Mastercraft for mud tires (another Cooper second tier name).

In many cases, these are great tires.

But, you may find Mastercraft (and there are other domestic tires made with other brand names and priced cheaper) dealers somewhere near you and find it's easier and as cheap to buy locally.

$436 for tires plus $96.40 for shipping. That's $532.40 then about $50 to get them mounted and about 35 to get them balanced...over $600... great. I can get a wheel and tire combo for that much.
