finally doing it.... buying new tires! click to find out hich tires...

the RTS Slicks I got just aint cutting it for me..... i have 0 traction in 'lisht' slush, and quite frankly their becoming more and more dangerous the more i drive on them. So, I am ordering a set of General Grabber AT2's 265/70/16's their the same hieght as the 245's that are on there now, tho their a smidge higher, but alil less than an inch wider. I been researching tires for a year now.. and have read ALL the reveiws on the Grabber AT2's and they all have excellent reviews. and their $400 cheaper than the BFG's so since im poor, thats what im getting. order tonight, should be here in 4 days....

now to find a place to mount and balance them cheap.....

Your saying they want $800+ for BFG's in the stock size shipped? That doesn't sound right.

Was that a mistype -- saying the BFG's were $400 more?

the AT KO's are 6 ply, mine are 4 ply. and their on average $65+ MORE per tire actually more than that, cause mine were $90 each. and the same tire i got in the bfgs is 165 each, which is $75 more per tire making them $300 MORE than what I paid. look it up on tire rack if you dont believe me. Point is I need new tires bad, and im pretty broke and these fit the bill. hopefully their as good as the reveiws I read about them, say they are.
