What to get.... ? Help me out

So here is the deal....

I am selling my current tires to a friend for 250 bucks and I am getting some new shoes on my truck. My question is what should I get and how big should I go?
I have been looking into a few different tires and for now I think I am going to stick with my stock rims until I can afford a new set of wheels.

The options: Any of which will be on stock wheels with stock suspension on my 2002 4X4 XLT

Big O Bigfoot A/T: http://www.bigotires.com/TireDetails...&PartNo=007-79

Firestone Destination A/T:

Bridgestone Dueler A/T REVO:

Mind you I am a college student and I am not trying to spend a lot of money I would like to stay under about 550 total and all of these fall in that range.
I am looking for something that is going to make my truck look a lot tougher.

Any other ideas would be helpful also. Thanks all

Ory,

In my opionion if you are wanting a tougher looking tire then the 3 that you picked are just average. The Bridgestone is the most aggressive looking off the tires you selected. Its also probably the best tire as well. The Bridgestone are also by far the most expensive. I think maybe to much, but then again you get your discount.

I think the Bridgestone would be your best bet if you wanted to spend the money. If not I would go with the Big O A/T.

Kumho, Dunlop, and a few other brands have some more aggressive tread desings if thats what your going for.

I think that sounds like a good plan. Big O has been selling those tires for years so you know that you are gonna get a decent set of tires.
