600 out the door, had a buddy install them in his shop class for free. GREAT so far, nice and quiet on the street, great in the snow and the rain. mine have flat spotted a little bit when i let the truck sit 24hrs or more, but i don't mind at all.

Also went with the Falken Rocky Mountain ATS. Just over $785 for set of four.
Including mount and balance and damage replacement certificates.
Have had them for 5 days now. Handles good. No real noticeable tire noise. Not
much worse than last set of tires. Radio covers any minor noise!
No rain/snow to check with. Maybe in the morning. No chance to get up into the
hills and do some 2WD off roading. So, not sure how they handle there yet.
Overall, I'm happy with my choice.

Falken Rocky Mountain ATS - $144
From Discount Tire
2wd 2001 Edge, 4.0L auto.
Mods: OHC, auto dim mirror, Westin grille guard, nerf bars, Hella 500 off road lights, AVS bug shield and window vents, tonneau cover and 31/10.5/15 Falken Rocky Mountains, MB TKO 15x8 rims. Regeared to 3.73 with LSD.
