Hop in the DeLorean and punch 1977 as your destination.

Seriously, I am searching for decent tires alone, and I expect to pay close to $1,000. The used tire market may be your best bet if you need to keep the cost below 1K.

Firestone Dest ATs; how long will they last?

I have 28k on mine, starting to show some wear. I do about 14k a year. 95% road (sadly) but drive aggressively (oops). Wondering if I can get through winter here in Northern Ma, Southern NH... They say they are 50k tires but I don't know, doesn't look like I will get that...Thx.

This weekend, Discount Tire Direct was running a special. 4 MB 72 wheels and 4 33x12.50-15 Hankook tires (just using a very popular and high quality example) would run you $855 delivered to your door after mail in rebates. Most places charge more than that for tires alone. DTD rocks. Hopefully they'll do another big sale this fall when the shopping season picks up.

Don't overlook Toyo's new AT-II. They redesigned the AT with an improved tread, new side wall and longer tread wear. Just put these on my pick-up a week or so ago. Obviously I'm happy with them at this point but haven't had them off road or in the snow yet.

I just put new 31 10.5 15 bfg at on my tj a couple days ago and they work awsome. My jeep crawled strait up a rock in 4 low and it was like nothing. I wanted the wrangler mtr with kevlar like I put on my old bronco but these where like 400 bucks less. they are not as flashy but they work great.

Been running the BFG AT's on my Hemi WK for almost a year now. Rotate every 5k miles and they are still looking great.

Well, it usually takes like 4 or 5 months to rack up 5k miles on the WK. So it doesn't really feel like I'm doing it all the time. I rotate the tires on my Chevy every other oil change, so about every 10k miles. But then again, I probably average at least 1600 miles a month on my Chevy.

Every other oil change is a very good habit to get into... I try to get my coustomers on that schedual so that way they will have more even tread wear. And it helps me remember.
