You never said you wanted cheap tires. What is your budget?

Now that's a hell of a deal there. Where did you get a online quote for 69.99/tire?

BFG All Terrains are very popular and often recommended by the masses. I have them and I would recommend them, if you're paying retail it's probably not the cheapest option though.

Yea why delete it?
Anyway, I just bought some Yokohama Geolander AT-S's and they are so smooth and quite on the road.
Grip awesome too, especially compared to my bald as hell previous tires. I think they were Goodyear but it doesn't matter I got them at about -10% safe tread hahahaha
