Default Tires on a budget

To start I have a 2000 Blazer LA 4x4 that came with 235/70/15 tires. I see that I can fit 30x9.5 r 15 on it. I don't wheel a lot ( but I do on occasion enjoy the mud and light trails ) because it is my daily driver. I do live in North Dakota so I have winter to think of to. Would I be better just going to a 235/75/15 or to a 30x9.5 r 15 tires? Also what are some good at or mt tires with budget in mind? Any input to help me make a decision will be greatly appreciated.

Here's a good site with alot of info.

Not alot of diff between the two sizes you asked about. I've been using 235/75R15 General Grabber AT2's on my '96 Cherokee XJ for 2 winters now.. They're doing everything I've asked of them.

Thanks alot. I have been looking around and thing i am going to go with the 30x9.5r15 Cooper Discovery AT3. They have alot of good reviews for being aggressive yet road friendly.

I have looked at the General Grabber AT2 and they are right up there. I am seriously considering which one to order because i have 2 weeks till i order tires.

I have Falken Wildpeak AT. Cheaper then anything i found and they are pretty decent. I haven't done a lot of wheeling with them though

I had a set of Falken Wildpeak AT's and had no problems with them. It's not super aggressive because it's only an all terrain tire. However, they did a good job in the mud and dirt roads.

I had 4 new Falken Rocky Mountain ATS 30X950R15 All-Terrain, All-Season, All-Purpose tires mounted on the stock factory wheels and can't complain for the killer price of $112. each (before: Sales Tax, Environmental Fee "State Required" Tire Disposal Fee, Valve Stems, Lifetime Rotations, Installation & Lifetime Balancing) at America's Tire. So far I'm pleased with my purchase, other than the tread noise humming on the hwy.

*common side effects

Aches or pains in the muscles
bloody nose
diarrhea
difficult or labored breathing
flushing
headache
pain or tenderness around the eyes and cheekbones
redness of the skin
sneezing
stomach discomfort following meals
stuffy or runny nose
trouble sleeping
unusually warm skin

Thanks. I went with the 255/70R15 Cooper Discovery AT3 tires. They ended up being just as tall as most of the 30 inch tires but they are also just over 10 inches wide. So i get a wider foot print as well as the taller tire. They do great on the trails and in mud.
