Getting New Tires ( Sneaking some Off-road tires)

Soon i'll be due for a new set of tires , im thinking i can get some dual purpose tires for the same or better price. So what i am saying is , i can get some tires for off-roading , but still good for city use. under $400 for a set of 4

i was thinking on some Fuzion XT1's 235/70R16 , what do you think , my budget is under $400

You need to spend more than 400 dollars to get some decent tires.

have fun looking for half way decent tires at such a low budget. It will be your best bet to go used.

good tires will cost more than that. you should NEVER skimp on tires. i repeat, if you skimp on anything, it should NOT be on tires. save up some more.

lol i've spent over $400 on a single tire before (not of my rover). be very careful with cheap tires. the General Grabbers are a great bang for your buck option.

actually for the size you want you can get some decent tires close to 400 but would not include shiping or instalation. check out cooper thats about the best low budget tire there is. you can get yokahama dunlop or hankooks for about 110 to 120 a tire in that size.

I paid $447 for two 34x9.5 TSLs mounted and balanced, BUT they aren't exactly street plus off-road tires. More like off-road only. I did find the Firestone Destination A/Ts at $95 a tire, but that is still before shipping/installation etc. So in realty even if you find some cheap tires (new) you will need at least $500 to get them installed etc unless you go used.

I have just bought Goodyear Duratracs for my road/easy off-road tyres. They are an aggressive A/T. Will have to wait to see how they go.

I would search craigslist or your local 4x4 forums sale section for some used tires. You can often get a set of good used tires for $300-$400.

EDIT:
Looks like Draider got to the craigslist idea before me
