Recommendations on tires..

Well its time for new tires, unfortunately my budget is extremely limited due to the events of the past year. So I have about $800...which isn't much but it will have to do. I want tires with road hazard and such so used really isn't for me. I have looked at the Toyo Open Country HT which is right at $800 OTD, the Toyo OC AT2 would be $850. I can also get the Hankook Dynapro HT for $800. Any thoughts on these tires or other good options for me?

Check some of the options from cooper. Discoverer a/t3 or zeons. One of those or similar I saw for $201 on DTD.

What is the size of your tire? BFG AT is cheap if you could use 275/70/18.

I currently am running the GY AT/S , LT 275/65/18. I have noticed that if I went to the 265/70/18, the tire would be about a half inch taller but a shade narrower, and about $20-$25 cheaper per tire.
The Terra's around here for some reason are 210 and up.

What are yall's experience with purchasing online and paying a shop to install? Does it save any $$, how are road hazard claims handled?

I've done that a few times years ago and found that it all depends on the savings you get from buying online. Sometimes you can talk to the local tire dealer and they will make up for the difference with free services like lifetime balance and rotation, alignment...

Doesn't Discount Tire have dealers they partner up with? That might be the way to go.

If you are in a pinch for cash, you really should look into buying a set of new take-offs. You'll spend half of what you are talking about. I know you said you don't want used, but I'm not sure what everyones infatuation with road hazard warranties and such are? I mean, you catch a nail, plug it, $4.99.

I'm kinda young, 35, but in my almost 20 years of driving, I've never had a need for a unicorn warranty. I blew out 1 tire, used a donut for a few days while I waited for a new replacement tire that I ordered off the internet, then paid someone to put it on. I think I was out $200 tops, it was a car tire. That was 5 years ago. Aside from that, I've never had a flat that I couldnt permanently fix with a plug. Have never had to deal with treadwear warranties either.

You buy a set of take-offs from craigslist, I think you'll be good for a long time.

I have thought of CL but I'm a little insecure about that and even considered one post from a member on here that was a 1.5 hour drive for me, but I thought he was too high for used tires. There is a place not to far from me that their only business is selling and installing factory take-offs. I need to give them a call.

X3 on the grapplers. Good street tire, with ability to hit some offroad. CL, classifieds, or local shops is where I'd be searching if you can bring yourself to buy take-offs.

Just talked to sears (i know) but i can get the Cooper AT3's for $756 OTD, and a $100 sears card...at least with that I could get a Christmas gift for my wife or son...I don't know what the Heck to do now.
Someone at work said why would you buy tires instead of Christmas gifts...really? Geez some people are STUPID!

The sears price conveniently did not add taxes...+$64

Hope they don't try to pull a Bait and Switch on you when you get there, Sears is famous for doing that.. they'll also try to sell you some other type of service, i.e. BRAKES, SHOCKS, WHEEL ALIGNMENT etc.. If I were you, just go to a Tire shop like America's tire co or Discount tire.. they have great prices and don't try to sell you anything else. As far as the raod hazard warranty, you don't have to buy it at the time, you can buy it later if you still want it and are in a better finanial situation..
