Default best brand new tire??

Alright guys like the title says, whats the best brand new tire if you were buying new??

I'm thinking because i do an awful lot oh highway commit coming home from school i want an all terrain like the Bfg all terrain, or possibly something else.....so that being said can you give me your take on what tires i should buy...

Also looking for a good priced tire thats not going to break the bank completely. oh and they have to come in at least a 33, thats my size....

Agreed , I like the Goodyear wranglers . It would either be them or copper , I had a set of them on my old blazer and I never got stuck , actually the coppers where the best traction tire I have ever bought , besides the super swamper's .

I went with pepboys Definity Dakota A/T2's. I think they are running their buy 3 get one free special again right now, so that would definitely cut the cost down. I like 'em. Even though they are pepboy's brand, they are actually made by cooper. And cooper makes good tires so you can put 2 and 2 together. Just my .02.

Only thing to watch out for is the thinner sidewall. As long as you aren't rock crawling you should be fine though.

I'd go with the diamond encrusted tires with the 100% kevlar tread. The rocks don't tear up these tires, the tires tear up the rocks!

Price has not been set yet on them but should be out shortly.

I vote the Goodyear DuraTracs.

Spoiler alert but i have them on my truck IN 31's now and i absolutely love them. Very quiet on the road, and they corner well.

(my build thread soon to come)
