Mastercraft is good tire without the big name price. I have a set on my Tundra.

I had good luck with the goodyears until I started at a new mine with a longer gravel road. It seemed after driving 40 miles on blacktop the tires got good and warm and when I hit the gravel it just eat the tires up. Had lots of tread on the tires,but was constantly having flats. I switched to B F Goodrich rugged terrane and have been well pleased.

I'm not really worried about road noise as its just my work truck, I'm more concerned with traction because its 2wd and let's face it I need all the help I can get in that department.

I know they may be cheaper but I refuse to take my vehicles to Walmart anymore after they decided to refuse to honor my road hazard warranty because I worked construction and they used a pair of channel lock pliers to tighten my oil filler cap on the 97 Dakota I used to have.

My local big o tires has a loyal customer, everytime I go in there they give it to me straight no bs and I couldn't tell you how many times he has patched/plugged my tires and not charged me when I hadn't even bought them from him. That's when I used to run the Walmart tires. The tires that are on it now I bought from them, big o brand sxp's. I'm was happy with them, except I only got two years outta them. Driving in a rock quarry will eat up your tires tho.

The goodyears were 103 each and I think the coopers were 89. I'm leaning more towards the goodyears.

Been reading customer reviews on tirerack.com and about 80% of the people who bought Goodyear wranglers are saying they are horrible in the rain.

That was my experience as well...You'd have to go way out of your way to hydroplane on the BFG's I linked...

Gotta figure, if they come on the vehicle out of the factory, they're bottom shelf stuff...like how builders will use the cheapest, crappiest windows they can find to cut costs...(see Ford/Firestone...)

Got my '97 Dakota with 27K on it, ended up getting $500 off because the Goodyears that it came with were about 10 miles from not passing an inspection...original tires, only 27K and worn down to almost nothing...pure crap I tells ya!!! I heard they make good blimps though...

I looked into the mastercraft tires that gatoragn linked, I wonder if my local big o could order them. They look like a pretty meaty tire. I prefer a tire with a little meat on it cause while I do drive mostly highway and interstate miles I do also drive in my yard a lot and come this spring launching a boat is something both my trucks will be doing.

i had a set of the Mastercraft tires on my 2001 Dodge Ram and they were excellent tires. keep them aired up properly and rotate them, and they usually go beyond the rated rated mileage. mide did!

My truck had BF Goodrich all terrains when I got it, they lasted me three years, don't know how long they were on before but I know I've put 50k on that truck in the last the years. I bought new drive tires for it last Saturday, Yokohama all terrains, they were $360 for 2 mounted and balanced, we'll see how they do.

I have Michelin LTX AT on our pickup. But I think those will run about $350 more than what you are looking at. I put them on last November and they still look brand new.

I suggest you go over to www.tirerack.com and look at the feedback on those tires.
