Help selecting tire

So I want BF Goodrich all terrain tires, but they are so darn expensive and I, being an 18 year old boy, don't have the money for those tires. so I want the next best thing, a cheap all terrain tire that will perform almost as well as the BF Goodrich all terrains but at a cheaper price. Any suggestions?

Would you go to Mexico for cheap knee surgery? tires are important. Save it and drop the cash when you can. BFG are some of the best all terrains. If that's what you want, that's what you should get. You only need to buy tires every what? 4 years. Not that bad. Buy 2 now. And 2 in a couple months so that when it comes time to replace. Your only spending 400$ or so at a time insead of almost a grand.

Check out Goodyear DuraTrac. Great tire and $100 rebate from Tread Lightly. If you buy from Discount Tire and use their credit card you will get another rebate of $50. And I think Goodyear is still offering a $40 rebate on that tire. That's $190 in rebates. You will have to buy a membership to Tread Lightly for $25. Bought mine this way and got all my rebates in about a month. Love the tires too. Check em out. Nice aggressive look too.

Yep, I sold a set of 31 km2's with wheels for 500. Keep an eye out, you can find some great deals on good tires.

Good year has promotions frequently.
I saved $80 plus the tread lightly refund of $100. The Good Year credit card gave me 5 months to pay it off before interest . If you get accepted for the card and can swing paying it off quickly it would be a great way to build up your credit as well.

Welcome
Click here^
$25 membership for a year and you print off the rebate form. After you buy your tires you fill it out and mail it in.
