Time for some new tires!

Well the original equipment Wrangler RT/S's are done for so its time to get some new rubber. I have an apointment tommorow to get some Wrangler AS P-Metric tires installed. I've been told there the best bet for highway driving.. wich is what I do 98% of the time. Thing is I cant find ANY information on them at all online anywhere. Anyone know anyting about these tires ? Thanks guys

for starters, Goodyear dosen't even list a "Wrangler AS" model on their website. Are you actually looking at the Wranger AT/S? if so, you can get a lot of info on them at:

How about Mickey Thompson. I'm about to buy 35x12.5x15 Baja MTZ's -- but their ATZ is a very aggressive all-terrain that looks great. They both the ATZ and MTZ have full 3 ply sidewalls (like BFG AT's) and full 6 ply treads (really 6 ply, not "rated" 6 ply).

This is what the MTZ's look like.

Goodyear = there are a few exceptions mainly the MTR according to some but I've had their RT/S and that is enought to never buy Goodyears again. I just got the BFG AT and well it's one heck of a tire. If you want a really good highway tire the Micheline LTX/MS is a killer tire. My dad is on his second set with his F-150 and he loves them, about 50k+ is easily achievable with those tires (how many miles he had on them). He just buys new ones when they get toward the bottom of the tread. You could easily get 60K miles out of a set.

I know there not listed on the website.. thats because theyre built by Goodyear exclusively for Canadian Tire but theyre not listed on CT's website either so who knows .... Im really on a budget big time and theyre way cheaper then anywhere else. I'd really love some nice fat off road tires but 1. I mainly do highway driving and 2. There sooooooo damn expensive. Even the cheap Canadian Tire budget brand (Motomaster Roughriders) mud and snow tire is $142 a peice and im grabbin these up for $96 each...multiply that by 4 and thats quite a bit of money. Oh well maybe when im in a bit better financial situation I'll get some new tires but unfortunatly for now these will have to do. Thanks anyways for the suggestions guys.
