I did a quick 5 minute search, and did not find a thread about vehicle tires. If there is one could someone please direct me towards it?

Anyway, I just recently purchased a 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4, and i am looking for some new tires. This is my first vehicle, and i am getting my license tomorrow. I have decided to ask the knowledgeable community of UG for some opinions(mistake?).The tire size is 265 75R16.

Where I live, about 7-8 months out of the year the roads are snow-covered. I was thinking that an All-Terrain tire would be my best bet. As of now, I do not plan on doing any serious off-roading, so i do not want a big, loud, clunky-treaded tire. However, the majority of the time i will be driving on pavement(whether it is snow covered or not.)I am looking for a sort of "budget" tire, because after i purchased this truck i had to put 1300 USD of repairs into it(that's another story). I have been to a few places around my town, and here are a few of the options that i have.

Kelly Safari Trex, 130$ a piece
Uniroyal Liberator 135$ a piece
GoodYear Tracker2 120$ a piece
Bridgestone Dueler RVT 140$ a piece

The whole point of this thread is to get a decent (all-terrain?) tire for as cheap as possible, I do not have a job yet, and cannot afford the best of the best.


Here is a picture for those of you who enjoy them, I know that i do:

You know why there aren't any threads on vehicle tires?

For the same reason that there isn't any threads on beansprouts, or power adapters.

I'd like a thread dedicated to power adapters actually. I hate those devils, and it's always confusing when you have to buy some for your pedals.

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

As my old guitar teacher once said: Metal really comes from classical music. The only difference is pinch harmonics, double bass, and lyrics about killing goats.
