It's less about brand and more about individual tire models. Goodyear, for example, makes some nice tires and some really terrible tires. They all have their hits and misses.

What's good for mpg, good off road, and doesn't cost a lot is what everyone is asking. If a tire could do all that, no one would need any other tire. You won't be having your cake and eating it too, but if you give me more useful info, I'll try to recommend something you'll be completely satisfied with.

I could write a small book about tires, so if you would be so kind as to describe the type of driving (and please fill-out your vehicle information in your profile) to the greatest degree of detail you can especially the nature and amount of off-roading you plan to do, then I will hook you up. If you poke around my post history, you'll see that I don't half-*** my responses especially regarding tires, so the more you can tell me, the more I can tell you.

I think Kumho SAT for least expensive good option.

Any of the Hercules ATs for a slightly more expensive option, but still value priced and a great option.

Cooper AT3 for a medium priced option and a great tire.

The MTR are more expensive, more agressive, and heavier than the tires I recommemded.

MTR are great tires for someone with the money, who needs more aggressive and super tough tires, and doesn't mind less gas mileage than an AT gives.

The ATs I recommended fit what the OP is looking for. Lower cost, good performance, good gas mileage.

What size tire? Some don't make smaller tires and some don't make larger ones. Need more info to make recommendation.

try here for nice tires for cheap: www.treadwright.com

i had one set last nearly 5 years and well over 40K miles. they had great traction on the ice and snow i get here every winter. bought another set to put on my little cj. will be buying another set for my recently acquired fsj. i'm a repeat customer and a believer on their quality.

^ ^ i was wondering the same thing, Is the broken glass and walnut worth the extra $$. I don't offroad much, specially right now since I have two boys, 2 year old and 8 month old, not much time to do much really lol.

you don't have to get the traction enhancers. they make them without that. just pick out the tread pattern you like, then decide if you want the "kedge grip" traction material in the tire or not.
i have had tires from them both with and without their "kedge grip". they both performed very, very well. where i live, there is about 5-6 months of snow, ice, and 'black ice' possibilities and neither chains nor studs are allowed. the 'kedge grip' did help for sure. i always get AT type tread pattern as mine are daily drivers with light-moderate trail use. just my personal experience.
