Default New tires!!!

Well, I'm headed down to get some new skins on the expedition. Currently have the Hankook M/T's 285/75R17. They are good tires but man are they loud! Howl like a banshee.

Picking up some 265/70R17 BFG AT's. cost is 1,059 out the door!

Post pics in a little while

Thats about 250 per tire installed .

My Toyo's for My Ram 1500 extended cab was the same price and they were 16 Inch Toyo Town and Country tires .

Tires were 217 a piece. That price also include 4 certs. for free replacement. Nail, blowouts, hazards any thing that happens to the tire. They run about $130 for 4 but well worth it. I have replaced 8 tires in my lifetime of buying tires from them. I got them from discount tire. here are some pics

Default Re: New tires!!!

Thanks guys. Man, these are so much nicer than those M/T's.... They were good tires, were on the truck when we got it. I put the rims on last year around this time. The M/T's have about a 1/4" tread left with a little wear on the insides of the fronts, but those things were so loud, the enitre truck howled down the road and it always felt like the axles in the front were locking up....very bad vibrating sound. But, with the BFG's all noise is now gone. And she rides like a dream.
