Paid $660 for 265/75/16 Dakota MTs (load rating E) with $150 back to me from rebate. Paid $150 for Cragar 16x8 Soft 8s off craigslist.
These tires catch some flack b/c they aren't Goodyear or BFG MTs but they have always performed well for me in different types of mud.

I paid $340 for my all terrains, then bought the lifetime warranty, and after mounting + tax about $400 OTD for the tires.

Canadian bucks too though. But still ripped. That's also WITH my 10% Tire Discounter price.

I paid $1000 for 31x10.5x15 Discoverer STT's and paid $800 for 255/70/16 Discoverer ATR's on my dad's truck.

Think I paid around $1050 for my 33x12.5R15 Kumho MTs and my Ion Alloy Style 170s. Local shop gave me free balancing and mounting as well. That was 3 years ago now though.

Used, with little tread left. Most sets of tires I see for sale on Kijiji and Craigslist are $350-800.

No clue. I do lots of highway driving, so I'm sure the lifespan of mine will be significantly shortened. But atleast I'll look cool doing it. haha. We are expecting to get about 4" of snow tonight, so tomorrow will be my first real test with them in inclement conditions. I had them mounted yesterday and it has been dry as a bone. I put about 130 miles on them today though.

I'm actually surprised at how smooth and quiet they are on the highway. They don't feel heavy or like they bog the truck, even though my wheel/tire combo is significantly heavier than stock. My mom says they look like tractor tires, lol, but after she was with me in the truck today she was also shocked at how smooth and compliant they were. I can cruise along at 75mph no sweat. They are only really noisy under 30mph, but the truck drives just great with them. Money well spent IMO.
