looking at tires in the near future. Ive never used tire rack but they always seem to pop up. Are they any good? Still have to pay to have them mounted and balanced so not sure if the savings is there. Any idea on good brands? Im on Goodyear eagle ls 2's dont like them as they are very noisey and seem like a very hard compound. looking for 245-40-18.
I always use Costco. Wait for whatever brand they have at $70 off set of four. They carry Michelin and Bridgestone. I just bought some Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3.
I'm quite partial to Michelins.
Then click on the category you're looking for under Consumer Ratings
I got Hankooks for my truck that rated real high and look cool.
You have to consider what you are going to have to do if your tire needs replacement under warranty. You just cant get very far from a Walmart, Sams club or Costco.
I like Goodrich tires because I get a lot of miles out of them and they perform well. I can easily get 70k, but I don't like to run tires that long. I generally replace around 60k and sell the used tires on craiglist for 50$ because they have so much tread left.

You must do a lot of highway miles.
Now, in a small hijack, I am looking for good, load range d or e all terrains for my truck. 285/60r20.
Any ideas? Oh yeah, I would like to get more than 24k miles out of them.
Firestone transforce, no mileage warranty available, nearly 30k miles(original equip).
Bf Goodrich, no mileage warranty on the KO 2s( they did away with the ko's). 23000 mikes.
So I've been looking at tire rack and a few others too. Need to do something soon.
are the best
My wife's Honda Pilot came with Michellen MXV4 tires. Has 48k n them and another 8-10k judging by my depth gauge. Still quiet and wearing evenly. I plan to replace them with same. First OEM tire I wasn't anxious to replace due to ride or noise.
Check out the General Grabber AT2's. I used to have them and they were awesome. Not sure what the warranty is but they are not as soft the BFG a/t's and last a lot longer. Nitto's wear pretty fast as well.
Why do you need such a heavy tire? Unless your maxing out the vehicle gross weight a C range will ride better and will carry anything you will put in the bed of the truck. And if your doing mostly highway miles a all terrain tire will not last long.
This may sound strange but believe it or not Sears has some pretty good prices and service for life.
I agree, it's hard to beat Michelin even though I run Goodyear Eagles on the Stang.

Thank you, I'll check those out
Hancooks from Tire Rack.
There is a place just off of Glades that does a real good job mounting and balancing. It's the place owned by Famous Frank the guitar player in a lot of local bands. They have no problems mounting and balancing Tire Rack or Discount Tire tires.
The reason I do not buy local anymore is because the tires you get locally can possibly be sitting for years. The tires you get from Tire Rack will be fresh, they move tires.
I've bought local and have had dry rot issues.
Is my grammar and spelling OK, ********?
It's not Glades it is the next major East-West road North of Glades. Maybe 15th street? It's the same road that the Boca Small Engine business is on.
I have bought at least 6 sets of Hancooks and never had a problem.
That would be 20th St. You remember the name of the shop? Im about to need a set mounted.
It is 20th St.
AMF Tire. This is a decent place. They mounted race car tires, truck tires, passenger car tires and anything else I would bring.

I've been running Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs for years now. My last set went about 70k which is astonishing for a tire with this aggressive of a tread. They do have a warranty as well. I think it's 50k.
Warranty and free balancing and rotation is worth the price
ha, my neighbor. His tire prices are high but never thought to ask him for just a mount and balance. We do his ac work. Ill go pay him a visit
