What Kind Of Tire?

Ok I know you are all going to say BFG ATs but they are hard to come by in 245/75/16 and are ridiculously expensive. I do not really wanted to but I am going to have to stick with stock size for a number of reasons. Hopefully when this next set of tires wear I will be able to lift and get my 33's that I really want. What is a good all around tire to replace my stock tire? Opinions please.

Try the General Grabber AT2's from www.tirerack.com They have the same tread pattern as the BFG AT's. The BFG's have no mileage warantee, the General's have 60,000 miles, and the General Grabber AT2's are about $80 a tire instead of $140. I have them on my Jeep Liberty, and really like them. The reviews on the tirerack website are pretty good too.

go to les schwab man. Jus get whatever they usually offer, but you'll get 50k miles haha, which means in about 5 years at my speed driving it'd be lifting time. And 5 years gas will probably be 17 bucks
