Best All-season tires...

im looking to get some new tires soon and with gas prices id really rather not get all-terrains so im looking to get a decent set of all-season tires or some performance all seasons....

hopefully something under 100 a tire for 235/75/15s or 260/70/15s... anyone have any good experances with some?

thanks...

also snow performance is a gray area with me because it would be nice for the first few years to have good traction, but i got 6 snows that jsut need new rims and id be set for winter....

What's the tire one step below the BFG A/T? They have an all season tire. I would think that they would be just what you're looking for.

BFG has a trailmaster or something like that at walmart and they are a step below BFG A/T's. I would look into those.

Never seen 'em before, but they look good. The rating isn't too bad either 4/5.

The Falken Zeis series are a nice tire. Wowak ran them for a while on his 2wd.

I use Goodyear RSA's and drive on them like I stole the truck. They do rather well in snow and rain, have grip just as good as BFG KDW's on dry pavement. They carry a premium cost.

Something to consider.. The ONLY part of your vehical that has any contact/control with the ground are your tires. If you buy ' cheap ', don't expect any semblence of safty in the rain or snow.

BFGoodrich Radial T/A is probably your best ' bang for the buck '. If all your concerns relate to ' price first ' buy a set of Kumho's and shred them.

considering the rating id hope that they have good wet traction and dry traction, and from what i read on a dodge forum they have gotten some good reviews....

and thier not really cheap because most places sell them for aroun 90 to 100 which i guess is cheap but the only reason i found them for 61 is because id be getting 8 for me and my dads truck....


ill probably have to talk to wowak about them....

Had Geolanders on my EDGE. I'm an old guy with a 50% hearing loss and couldn't stand the noise! Went back to regular all season. Much better.

90-100 is VERY cheap. I DREAM of good tires that have outstanding grip being THAT cheap!

firestome destination le
very good wear, traction, and theyre affordable.
tire rack has them for 88 each. your local firestone place can get them but they cant match tire rack prices. but with buying a firestone tire you get lifetime rotation for free.
