Tires for my 2005 LR3 SE

Need to replace 2 of the 4 Avon Tech STs that I currently have on my LR3, as one of them was destroyed.

These are the best tires I've ever had on any truck, which is amazing considering I got them for $95 USD a piece just around a year ago.

I was considering the Pirelli Scorpion ATR but have recently read a lot of negative reviews concerning flat spots, dry rot, and sidewall issues.

Of course I'd get the Avons again if they were available, but they aren't.

Any suggestions?

Tires are 255/60/18, by the way.

Would replace all 4 if I could do it for less than $700 maybe. Would prefer to replace only 2.

I'm not sure I buy the tire shop's reccomendation that I can replace 2 of the 4 tires (rear axle) and still get good performance out of the tire? Is this true?

Now considering the Nitto Terra Grapplers if I go 255/60/18 or for 265 (if I replace all 4) the grapplers in 265 or the Goodyear Silent Armor in 265.

I'm not excited about spending more to replace all 4. But I want to the ride to be quality.

Ugh, looks like the Nitto doesn't come in 265. So 255s there either way.

I always have to put in a good word for the Cooper Zeon LTZ 285x60x18. Great mileage, great ride, great offroad tire. On my second set after nearly 50k on 1st set!
