What would YOU do?

Just looking to get some opinions from you guys... I need new tires, and I've got 2 pretty good deals that are available to me. My options are;

-4 like new Toyo Open Country AT's for 320 bucks (265/75/16)

-3 like new and one about 50% tread Michelin LTX/MS's for 175 for the set. (245/75/16)


It looks like I'm going to have to pay for mounting and all that crap for either set, but which do you think is the better deal? Obviously the Toyos are larger, and the Michelins are stock size.

Just to make sure also, the Toyos will fit on a stock 99 4x4 XLT, right?


Whaddya guys think? This is the truck they're going on;

toyos x10000000000000000000000000000000000000.9 x9000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 000000000000000000000000000000000000000000

And they will fit but it will be tight.

I don't know anything about the Toyo's, but the Michilen's are a good street tire, I used to have them and liked them.

I'd go for the Toyos just because all have the same thread depth. I love the Micheline's though for driving on the street. I'd still go with the Toyos.

Wow... Thanks for the replies guys! I have to wait until about tuesday to hear if I can definetly get the Toyos, because all businesses are closed till then, but hopefully they'll still have them. I hope they don't try and give me a hard time because they aren't exactly the same size as stock. Thanks guys.

Town Fair Tire. They're a chain store and offer a 30 day, money back gaurantee. Somebody bought the tires and then returned them within the 30 days. It was probably only a couple of days though, because one of them clearly still have the sticker on the treads! All said and done, with a thrust angle alignment, 460$
