Icon5 Getting new tires this weekend

Here goes I've been on a hunt for tires for the past 2-3 weeks and have been debating what to get. I've recently found a good deal on Definity Dakota A/T which is made by Cooper. They have a 50,000 mile warranty on them and they are on sale buy 3 get one free at Pep Boys. Originally I was planning on getting BFG A/T but I really can't afford to spend $500+ for new tires. The definity's are $112.99 for a 31x10.50x15 or they have a 31x11.50x15 for $115.99. I running 3.73 gears with a 3.slow, I know it's gonna slow it down but will it make any difference if I run a 10.50 or 11.50. Let me know what you think

Well to some up the story Pep boys suck, they are sneaky with there deals it would have been like $560 - the $115.99 there mail in rebate. Which is not worth it. Right now i'm looking at some bf goodrich long trail 31's for $325 that are like new. Or there are some New Dunlop Rover AT 32x115.50 for $400. I don't know how 32's would do with my 3.73's???

Scratch that - long trails are too much of a street tire, and I don't like looks of the Dunlop's.I'm going with the BFG A/T's

My buddies around here that have them seem to love them, so I took my chances and went out and bought 4 31x10.50R15 BFG All-terrain tires today. They have to ship them in from there warehouse so they are getting mounted on Tuesday.
