Question I need to replace my tires (215/75/14) with something

Well the front left tire on my Ford Aerostar rotted from being parked too long. I checked and it takes P215/75/R14. However, those tires are a little hard to find and the only ones I found were about $100. I was wondering if I might be able to replace both of the front tires (the other one might be a little rotted also) with something a little cheaper - or even if a better tire has come out that might last longer even if it does cost more.

Also, I looked around and heard something about the 215/70/14 but they are 2.6in (circumference) smaller (about 1-2% MPH off) so I am not sure if I should use them. Walmart caries them for only about $65.

225/70/14 would be about the same height as the 215/75/14 but just a little wider. They are pretty good tires and Wal~Mart has them for $70

Thanks I guess I'll buy two of them then. Actually, I think I might get the Uniroyal Liberator A/T as I spend more time off-road on gravel and they are the same price.
