Inexpensive Tire for Northern NY Winter?

Hey guys,

I live near Canada in Northern NY. I am also supporting two house holds. So I need a set of tires that don't cost a lot and yet will be good in the snow/slush. I would prefer an all season as they might last longer.

Suggestions please.

2004, Ford F-150, 4.2 V6, Heritage, 5 lug, locking diff., regular cab, stick shift, long bed.

Hankook dynepro atm, mine have 30k and still have more than half the tread left. And they were cheaper than the bfg all terrain

Cooper Discoverer AT3 is another good choice in the "not gonna break the bank" category.

I haven't tried AT3's but I'd imagine they are decent. I believe that is the replacement for ATR's. I used ATR's and A/T's for years and they we're great. Used Radial LT's in the summer.

The Coopers mentioned above win out. They are less expensive than the Hankooks Plus there are a couple of discounts that I have found with the Coopers. I did some research on the Coopers and nothing but positive things were said about them.

Thanks Guys!

Definitely a good choice going with the AT3s (and yes they were a replacement for the ATR). Don't forget Cooper has an $80 mail in rebate on those right now that's good until November 5th! Here's a link to them on our site: Discoverer AT3 Tires by Cooper - Buy Discoverer AT3 Online | Tread Depot

Remember, if y'all ever need anything please feel free to give me a call!
