warranties on tires are junk usually..

pretty much tires that come with "warrenties" most wont fit your price range..

you have like Mud kings(on back order for 33's tho), Dunlop mud rovers, Sport kings, Mastercrafts, Maxxis buck shots. there is more dont know them all

I have never had tires with warranties that I know of. If you get a nail/screw, pull it out and plug it.

OR.....do what I have done in the past.

Specifically bought tires that the local HUGE tire store chain carries....that way you still have the warranty that they offer when the tire was brand new. Example: Les Schwab carries Toyo A/Ts, so i got toyo at's just in case i had a nail or screw in one, they'd fix it.
