I need some cheap All Terrain Tires. Suggestions?

I know cheap tires suck.

I want tires that are cheap. I'd like some All Terrain-ish looking tires. I understand they may suck.

No more miles than my Jeep sees, I'm expecting them to rot long before I wear them out.

Any suggestions?

I put some tires on my old truck from tirerack.com. They're retreads, but have held up well so far. I picked up their blemishes (i.e. factory seconds) for about $60 per tire (shipped) and had the same tread pattern as the BFG All-terrain TAs.

edit: treadwright.com, not tirerack...

Retreads, or get some BFG AT's. Discounttiredirect will ship free, no sales tax, and do 0% financing for 6 months so you can do a little at a time without paying interest. I normally don't finance anything, but passing on 0% financing doesn't make sense.

Tires

I bought 4 31 10x15 tires at pep boys 2 years ago for around 90. Per tire. So far so good. Never been stuck in them.

If you are going with new I would suggest giving a look at the new Mastercraft Courser ATX all terrain, OR the Falken Wildpeak. The mastercrafts are cheaper than the Wildpeaks but they are also not as hard. Both are 50k tires. Im putting a set on a customers TJ in 235x75x15 out the door mounted, balanced, taxes, and fees for $510.

I run the Wildpeak in 315x75x16 on the wifes Super Duty and they are by far the best tire I have ever used on any truck I've ever owned. I also have a set of 31x10.50x15 on one of my Cherokees. I used to run a mud tire but I was running through them too quickly.

I have learned a lesson about the BFG A/T. I won't buy them again. I had two successive sets on my other Cherokee and they would balance out but always bounced at 45-50mph. I know you are thinking this was death wobble but I had completely rebuilt the front end. Upper and lower adjustable control arms, unit bearings, adjustable track bar, tie rod end, axles joints, and ball joints, fully aligned. still had the bounce. I had a set of Treadwrights that were better than the BFG.

I have had really good luck with my Goodyear Wrangler Authority tires from WAL-MART! They only came in 31x10.50x15 though.

X2 on the falken wildpeak. I run them in a 305/70R16 on my f-150. They look rather tame but they do surprisingly well off road, extremely in the snow, and on wet roads. It will be the next set that goes on my tj. If my cj spent more time on the road it would be wearing them as well.

Maxxis Bighorn. I got a set from Pep Boys but I see they aren't offering them anymore. I am a cheap tightwad, so these are the cheapest you will find without going retread. I didn't like the tread design on the Falken.
