well I got my tires through treadepot.com. The ratings on them are great and the ones I got are all weather, so maybe try them, they have some pretty fair pricing as well and I thought pretty fast shipping.

My Goodyear Eagle T/A's are actually pretty nice. They were $130/tire and they do well on wet roads and don't wear too bad. Or the Yokohama Parada Series 2 are pretty nice and handle like it's on rails in rain too. Haven't put many miles on mine as I got them right before winter, but they are pretty good so far on wear :lol:

I am a big fan of BFGoodrich. I have had different models of them from street to off road and they handle wonderfull in all weather(rain, snow and dry) and they seem to outlast the other brands of tires that I have owned. I had s set once that was rated for 45K miles and they lasted me close to 80K and still had a lot of tread left.

Stay away from Michelin and Dunlop, some people love those but I have nver had or heard anyone with good luck on those. The dealer that I bought my Ram, sends all vehicles back to Dodge that have Michelins, they dry rot and blow before the warranty and Michelin does not like to replace them.

I just put Yokohama AVID Touring-S on the front two wheels of my car this past summer. They cost me $63 a piece at Discount Tire, and so far I'm happy with them.

When you do get tire get some wide ones. Like 225 or 235. You'll get better grip on the roads. I know I do

Been looking at those for when I get my 18s.

I plan on running the steelies in winters, at least till I get bigger brakes, then I'll need 4-lug 17s.

dont get coopers. i hate them with a passion. their tread sucks, wares down too quick and over all is crap. everytime i would get in the car, i would worry about one of them blowing out. i went around a turn before winter, on the highway(highways dont have sharp turns) speed limit was 65 so im crusin at like 75, im in the passing lane, thank god, nothing on my right side, go around the turn and slid into the other lane,5th gear crusin, slid across the highway, wtf. sorry haha i really hate coopers.
