I need new tires

so I'm at 60,000+ and I'm starting to need tires.

Here's the deal I want something close to stock, nothing huge or rugged.

Stock tires: P235/70 R16



Now, what do you recommend that meets these requirements:

-Quiet
-Ride Quality
-Durability
-Traction
-Good in rain


That said, lets here some suggestions.

Thanks!

id say you cant go wrong with bfg at's, bfg long trails are good too also Kumho kl78. bfg's will last you forever and in the long run be the best imo

I agree with the BFG A/Ts. Just aren't all that great in the rain though.. that I've found anyways. Treadwear is awesome on them. I put over 65000km on my set and they're on my brother-in-laws Jeep now with well over half tread left.

you can bring home a hell of a tire for waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay under $150 a tire, it demepds on what you want, i have seen several tires for around that price that according to tirerack that are rated 5-6 out of 10,a nd tires for around $79m each that are rated 8 out of 10

Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2
bridgestone dueler, $137 a tire, great rating, they are a 5 year 50,000 mile tire

I'd go with Hankook Dynapro ATm from Discount Tire. They have a 50,000 mile warranty too. I have them on another vehicle and love them. They will most likely go on my Ranger next.

I would say Nitto Terra Grapplers or Hankook DynaPro AT's. They are both great tires and are in your size you will be able to get them under $150 a tire.

I have the Nittos and they are bad *** tires!

I got B-F Goodrich Radial Long Trail T/A tires and I love them, and they are stock size too... the only thing I don't like about em is they like to pick up rocks but other than that they are great!
