Default New tires

I ended up going with the Goodyear Eagle GT all weather. They cost me $900.00 tho. I won't be getting new rims anytime soon. but my tires from the factory did last me until 46,000 miles tho, I guess that's why they use those same tires on the state trooper vehicles. But I was not paying $300 a tire for them.

Mine comes with Bridegestone Dueler, they last about 45k miles. The garage gives me a set of ****ty Marshalls KR-21 ... they last 3k miles LOL

Now I have Yokohama Avid TRZ for summer and Pirelli Wintercarving for winter

Because there is a law in Quebec and I think accross the Canada that from December 15th to March 15th you need to have winter tires.

The good thing is that I've paid 125$ for the set of Pirelli lol

What size tires? That is as much as I'm going to pay for my trucks tire and a little less than what we paid for the tires on our 08 Acadia.

I called all over the place. Getting Michelin LTX M/S2's in an LT265/75-16 for $975.80 from Sam's club. This includes mounting, balancing, new valve stems and road hazard warranty. Sam's was by far the least expensive from all the places I called. This also included the $70 rebate from Michelin.

Just four years ago I put BFG All Terrains on it for only $600. The price of tires has gone sky high. At least I got 65k miles out of them.
