    Mich LTX MS2 on both expys, all pickups and the Grand Cherokee. Been running them since the early 1990's. Won't even consider anything else.

    Right now theyre ACTUALLY up to 145... were 104 though



    https://www.walmart.com/search/?page=1&query=255/70r18#searchProductResult


    Currently the good deals are Nexen and Pirellis for 120-something, at least in the size I looked up (255/70r18)... there's some super cheap severe service rated allweather allseason allterrainers from Nokian, though, for like $106 in the pretty much identical 265/65r18 size

    No they look totally different, they got this angular look to em.

    My device crashed while browsing for tires, and Amazon somehow misinterpreted that as me placing an order and seny me ONE kumho... took me a while to figure out how to return it and get around to it, so I got to compare.

    PS tirerack's price is horrible, like 70 bucks higher than walmart per tire

    Obviously .... there are a LOT of good tires these days!

    When I was out in Glacier NP, saw these rugged tires on a NP Ranger pickup. I talked to the Ranger and he said he did a lot of research and chose these & liked them. His big need was rugged sidewall since he can encounter a lot of rocks in the backcountry that cut sidewall.

    This was the cabin the guy lived in for the summer on Bowman Lake. Is that sweet or what?

    Take a look at load index and load ratings when comparisons it can cause a substantial fluctuation in price.
    In this case the tires you posted are 112s and his link are 113s.
    May make zero bit of difference depending upon one’s needs.
    I came across some KO2s for $55 cheaper a tire for the same size. Low and behold they were a C and not an E. No way I am putting a C on these rigs. A D possibly as I tow very little but an E is probably the best bet.

    I was wondering just how everyone had prices so much lower (50%) than the ones I could find. With tires capable of 50k miles will I be able to guarantee I won't be doing any trailering or loading the cargo area during that time? Nope. I don't want a catastrophic blowout just because I wanted to save $600 for a 5yr/50k mile investment.

    nothng yet, letting dust settle and see who hits a great sale between now and december
    leaning heavy to the michellin ltx ms 2, or the bfg a/t
    watching prices this week, plus lots of honey do NOWS.

    my buddy owns a tire store, but he is to small to get michellins, which sucks as he is close and does good work. But the down side is he is an independent store so if we are traveling and tires need any rotations or balance, it costs me
