Question Shopping for truck tires.... got some prices...

Went to Bell Tire, Discount, and a local place down the street. These are the tires I've got prices for so far, all are 285/75-16", all are 8 ply, and all prices are mounted and out the door:

Cooper Discover A/T $548.80
Kelly SUV A/T $635.96
Fisk Phantom A/T (made by BFG) $503.10
Dunlop Rover A/T (tires I'm running now) $622.32
Nitto Terra Grappler $631.12

I also looked at some Yokahama Geolanders.... was not impressed with these that much.

I also checked at the tirerack.com. They have pretty good prices, but then I have to have them mounted and balanced.

I really need to keep it under $600 though.... money is always tight!!

Any other suggestions? I drive about 60 miles round trip every day, thru some nasty Michigan weather, and I tow about 7000 lbs all summer. And don't say BFG's, I just can't afford them.

Mike- I've never heard anyone complain about Cooper tires, most rave about them.

My kid has the Nittos on his 'Burban and I have them on my f350. We both love them. Good traction , handling and relatively quite. Both are 305/70R-16 Load range E 10PR. Got them from tirerack.com in two days

Well if you said a Dually then the best tire would have been the Michelin LTX just because the don't cup hardly at all and rotating tires on a Dually is a pain. But I still like the Michelin they just ride nice.

If you have a Sam's Club or B J's in your area, check them out. I bought a set of Michelin's from them for my Suburban last year and it was the LTX 235/75's 15" and the cost out the door was only $493.21

steet, as soon as you go to 285, the price jumps quite a bit. I checked Sams (sort of, thru a friend) and they were not much different than the prices above.
