Can anyone recommend a good, moderately priced (<$100 each) set of all-season tires? I have a thing for Cooper tires (my truck has Discoverer ATR's on it) I have been looking at Cooper CS4's 225/60R15 but don't know much about any other brands. Any advise?

Thanks!!

I have Michelin MX4 tires (http://www.michelinman.com/tires/luxury-performance-touring/energy-mxv4-plus/#sizes-and-specifications) on mine. I have been really pleased with how well they do on ice. I run them year round and they do great in the wet months too. I am about due for a new set and they are the ones I am sure I will get again. Not sure how many miles are on them because they were on it when I bought the car. I have run them for 15k over two years, and the tread doesn't seem to be much less than when I bought the car.

I have TOYO proxes TPT on my touring and I am very happy with them Rain, Snow or Sunshine. They are under 100 each. Michelin is also a very good tire.

as well as the tires listed above, you could also try going to websites like tirerack.com and enter in your vehicle information. they independently test tires and post the reviews on their websites.

THanks for the input guys! i also have to opportunity to buy these wheels and tires:

I think they would look great on the old wagon, and the price is about right (although it is half of what i paid for the car :) ) what do you think of these??

The best value among AS tires are probably the Falken 912 (rated highly by Consumer Reports) and Kumho Ecsta ASX (rated highly at tirerack.com)

Did you know that the same tires from Discounttirezone are about half the price as the ones in the link you posted? And that the web company in that link buys from discount tirezone and others like it???

I'm telling you Man, we all should do the same thing. We would make a mint LOL...

I think those would be a great deal! The pilots are a great tire and those are a nice looking production wheel. For the price you can't go wrong, since tires, mounting, balancing and tax will cost you five bills anyway.....plus shoot them a lower offer than they are asking.

Well i ran an offer of $425 up the flagpole on those 8-series wheels and tires so we'll see what happens.

I agree about tiresbyweb.com...how that is legal is beyond me, but then again i guess if someone doesn't do their research when making a major purchase they deserve to get hosed...:thumbdwn:
