Pathfinder tires?

I usually always buy my tires at Discount Tire. I would like the BFG AT's but they're $176 each! Now they also have these Pathfinder AT's. I was wondering if anybody has ever run these and how did they perform, wear,traction, overall how satisifed were you? Here is a link to compare here are the Pathfinders http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/fin...70&ct=&rf=true

here are the BFG's just to compare

Shop around. You should be able to find BFG A/Ts in a comparable size way cheaper than $176. IMO, the Pathfinder tire in the picture looks more 'street' than 'all terrain'.

one of the guys i work with whos on here also had those tires on his ranger....
(i also work at discount) imo you should shoot for a 265 size tire anyways...probably not the bfg as they are bad about cupping out and not balanceing worth a crap...they are very over priced to...maybe look at a kumho or somthing idk about those pathfinders i dont really like them

I know I should get the BFG but they're expensive. I know you get what you pay for. How about these Bridgestone Dueler A/T 693 tires? I've hear here and there that they're pretty decent? Thanks

I live around 35th ave. and Greenway. I usually go to the store up on 43rd and Bell or the one near 16th Ave and Bell. I'd be willing to travel thoguh if I can save a few bucks. I probably won't get new tires for a month or so but I like to know what I'm getting into before it's too late . I don't like to be rushed or pressured when spending a decent amount of $$$.
