Sub $100 tire suggestions?

Hiya people. Wanted to post this locally.

Need some tires and the research is causing my head to explode.
235/75/r15 are what I have now. All mismatched being I just bought the rig.
It's a 99 explorer Eddie Bauer v8.
Being I have 15in rims keeps the price a little lower.

Would like some Michelin LTX M/S2 ideally or Toyo Open Country A/Ts or
BFG Rugged Terrains but out of my price range.

Be nice to get 50k out of a set.

Looking for all season and longer wearing, low noise tires.
Don't do off-road but occasionally tow a utility trailer.
Want to keep the fiancée safe on the road.

Any suggestions or tips?
Would rather trust you over tire rack reviews.

Are those LT235/75/15's or P235/75/15's...........You will pay more for LT( Light Truck) vs P(passenger) tires...........I seem to recall seeing P235/75/15 Goodyear Wranglers at Walmart for maybe a little less than $100 each, lots of explorers and chevy/gmc S- series pickups and S-Blazers used this size..........as far as real world, firsthand reviews go, you will find people who swear by BFG, Michelin, Toyo, GoodYear......You will also find folks who swear AT those brands....Ive had good luck with tire rack myself...

Toyo's are not that great in my experience (wear quickly) I have had very good use out of Les Schwab's Wildcat LT tires, but good luck on finding any good LT 235-75-15s for less than $100 new.

glockholiday is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Goodyear Wrangler Radial $75 here in AZ. You might not get 50,000 out of them, but probably close to that.

Hi

Last year @ Costco I got tires for less then $100 each that will do the do.
There was a $70 rebate, etc. Run Great with 80,000 miles tread wear rating.

LT tires no way that cheap for a quality tire.

Want to day thank you for the input people.
Willing to bet a thread like this comes up often.
Would be great to have a comprehensive list that's semi-updated.
Still looking myself.
