Baby needs new sneakers

Okay folks, I just finished checking the air in the front tire of the truck becasue they seemed a little soft, which they were. I have been aware that I was going to need to replace the tires sometime in the future and I was planning on doing it in the spring. Well needless to say my right front has other plans and I noticed that a few of the lug on the outside row of the tire are worn down to the point that there is no seperation between the lugs in a few places around the tire.

Stopped at my local shop and got some pricing and holy CRAP have tire gone up since I bought these 4 years ago. What ran me $135 before will now cost $197 So I am asking to see what you guys, family, friends, Fido are running that they like and are having good luck with.

Current sneakers are Cooper Discoverer ATR's in a LT265/75R16 and they are 6 ply tires & are 50k mile tires. I am looking for a similar or more agressive tire due to the possibility of being on the roads at any time for an emergency.

My son has them on his girlfriends Jeep and like them..

Wow, those are pricey! What I usually do is call 5 or 6 places and play them off against each other. When I put tires on the wifes Expedition last may, I bought Goodyears, and go them down from $170 to $120 a tire. Worth a shot!

The shop that I normally use was recommending some tires made by Nokian (I believe) From what he stated, they are a Swedish company and from what he stated they rank right in line with some Firestone and Bridgestones. I can get those for $159 each out the door and they are 50K mile tires and are 6 ply.
