Where to get decent priced tires?

Where do you guys with the 18 in. wheels buy your tires.

I have an '04 F150 4x4 and would like to get either aggressive all terrains or mud tires, but I sure don't want to pay $300 or more per tire like I've seen some advertised for.

Like Ruckus, I too have used Tire Rack for a long long time. Good stuff at a good price along with quick delivery.

I've been buying tires for everything from my 4x to my Motorhome at Costco. Don't need em yet, so I haven't checked prices there.
Costco can order tires, many more than they have in stock.
I have never beaten their prices.
Also, about four or five times a year they have a 60 buck off on four sale on tires.

Discount Tire and TireRack.com are the same company. They have pretty competitive prices and Discount Tire even price-matched Costco upon my asking. I would check Costco/Sam's if you've got a membership and go with Discount Tire/TireRack.com if you don't or even cross-check if you do.

Good luck with those tires. I had to have Ford replace all 4 of mine, and my local dealer has done the same for at least 10 trucks.

Tire rack has offered some good prices on the Long Trail. On their quality, dunno, they are made by Michelin, (contract thing, mentioned a number of times in the press) and the four I have seem very nice. Smooth as glass at 100, which is as fast as I want to push this truck. Lots of power left, but there is no way that the truck is designed for that speed.
I swapped out Michelin 255-65-17 for the 265-60-18 and the ride got slightly softer, handling stayed about the same. I have driven the trucks with the Hankooks and the Ameritrac. If my truck had them I would have yanked them the first week. Still, most people have not had any problems with them.

As to satisfaction on the various tires, check the reviews on tire rack.

One idiot at a tire machine can ruin four tires in about an hour.
I've watched them do it.
Also, there is such a thing as a bad run of tires.

I have also had a bad Z-rated Michelin, right off the shelf. And they make very good tires. Stuff happens.

you should go with the BFG a/t in the 285 or a nitto terra grappler in similar size. They will probably both run about $190 to $220 a tire. Not bad since they will last a long time and they have really good traction on most surfaces. Not so great in the mud but better than slicks. The toyo A/T is another good tire but probably pretty expensive. Just shop around at a lot of different tire stores until you find the best deal. There are a lot of good deals on some websites but be sure to compare prices so you dont get cheated.

Toyo actually makes a 33x12.50r18 in the open country mud terrain design. I have found them locally for 215 each, kind of wide for the 7.5 rim, but i'm sure you could get away with it. Most sites online do not advertise this size for some reason, but it is on toyo's web site.
