Tires: Hankook h727 vs AT or Goodyear Wrangler RT/S

Hey all,

I have been doing a lot of research on tires, and have not come up with anything conclusive. I have a few quotes from big box stores around here for a few different tires. Hankook Optimo H727's, Hankook Dynapro AS, Goodyear Wrangler Radial, or Goodyear Wrangler RT/S.

Of the 4 tires, which would be best for long distance in the snow? I do about four 500+ mile trips per year in the snow. I do not offroad all that often, and light duty at that.

Would you have any other suggestions for 235/75/R15's that are less than $500 bucks total?

I will make my purchase tomorrow, the more suggestions the better.

I really appreciate it!

Wrangler Radials are the suck in snow. Get the Duratracs. You'll spend more than 500, but you'll be smiling.

If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

@JohnnyZJ, Thanks for being honest! I know that they all suck, but I am a student, and don't have much more than $500 bucks to put into new tires. I currently have Wrangler GSA's, and they are awesome, but are entirely bald, and have a lot of dry rot.

@LordHobbit, 200 bucks a pop! I would have to sell my car to afford those! LOL!

Do you guys have any other suggestions that wont break the bank for a mostly highway ZJ?

GSA = Get Stuck Always. those suck too

been there man. i was a poor *** student. now i'm just a poor ***.

look for good used tires on kijiji or craigslist. often you can find some jeep take offs from someone that installed larger tires. might be a way to get some decent meats. or at least, cheaper

General Grabber AT2 is a good tire for a reasonable price.

Really???? I was told to stay away from General Tires. I guess it all depends on how much $$$ you are willing to throw at a brand, but i have not heard great things.

Thanks for the suggestions guys!!!
