Tyre virgin looking to not get ****ed!
Ok, the 7yr old tyres on my 2001 XLT (2wd) are getting pretty raggedy. They've got decent tread (<30k miles, not too worn apart from the strip that got chewed before I realised tyres need air post-install!) but the sidewalls are cracking all over and I've got a persistent slow leak in two of them. If I was a cop I'd write me a ticket, they look like they were sitting in the SC sun for six years (they were).
I'm mostly driving roads (highway) with very occasional trips onto flat dirt, so I need a decent set of all-terrain rubber that isn't going to screw me in the wallet too badly. I've got factory wheels (the semi-melted looking 5-spoke ones) and I could do bigger than stock if I had to, but don't want to get into trimming/spacers.
I'll be getting them done in a tyre shop, but the guy I have in mind can order in most anything I want, so recommend away!
