Tires!!

Am going to need new tires for F-250 real soon. Do not want to replace mudders on it, and do not want your typical truck tires. She''s my second vehicle, I live in PA and travel to NY half dozen times a year in winter. Went to 2 tire dealers and am confused...do not want to spend a small fortune on tires...want them to hold up and look good...Suggestions/comments please.

Re: Tires!!

Don't you know any tire stores ? And i don't mean WalMart. Talk to them. Tell them what
you want. Without seeing your truck and KNOWING what you want we can't help you.
I'll let you in on a little suprize. F250 tire are NOT cheap. An average good tire can run
$150.00 apiece and up. You have 16 inch rims. Bring money. You say the old tires are mudders ? Make sure you have the suspention retuned and aligned for regular tires.
Good luck

Re: Tires!!

Thank you very much for responding to my question. Yes, I visited 2 stores (not Walmart, etc) and they seem to care less to help me out. Yes, I know they are not cheap. Dealer I visited today quoted $186 to $249 for what he claimed to be between mudders and regular street tires.
P/U is a 2002 supercab short bed, bought it with the mudders.
Just want a tire that is good in snow and rain and looks good!

Re: Tires!!

Might try Discount Tire, Custom Wheels, Truck & Car Rims | Discount Tire. You can read customers reviews, prices are great and they offer free shipping. Plus sales tax

Re: Tires!!

The places i refer to are specialty shops. We have them up here. They are shops
that body shops send their frame damaged vehicles to for alignment and frame repair.
they also specialize in tires and suspention. They know what tires work on what vehicle
and the ones that are junk and who sells junk. They are not in the buisness to sell you tires. They will tell you what tire goes with what vehicle to maintain the warranty on the work they did on a vehicle and the safest tire for that vehicle. You don't slap any tire on any vehicle and hope for the best. BAD IDEA. Prime example. Put two Michelin radials on a vehicle and two other brand radials on the same vehical. Buckel up because you will be in for the ride of your life. I'm sure you will get it soreted. good luck.

Re: Tires!!

The site I mentioned has a option where you enter your vehicle info and will give you a list of tires specifically for your vehicle. And they are also a FF site sponsor.

Re: Tires!!

skidoogal - don't forget that M/T tires aren't the best to use in winter, even on a 4x4 as you can easily get into more trouble than with a similar all-season tire.

To help you out, buya set of M/Ts at a decent price. Dunlop has a nice set that was just released their Maxx Traction M/T tire. It's on their website. Dunlop's M/T's are also siped from the factory, which allows more flex and thus, more grip in wintry conditions. You can get a standard M/T tire siped at more tire places for about $15-20/tire.

Re: Tires!!

In addition to the mentioned site, try to look here: Tires at Tire Rack It's a good habit - use online accessories services for specific needs, I'm telling you.
