Need Some Tire Recommendations

So I know that I've posted a lot of tire questions in the past but it's now finally time to get these done. I just had my tires checked and my two fronts are at 4/32's and my two backs are at 5/32's. Would you replace your tires at this point or would you wear them out the rest of the way? I was told that I have about 5,000 miles left on these tires before I would have to replace and we still have to make a trip from Michigan to Florida next week. If you would go with getting new tires, which is the best deal:

1.) Hankook ATM 245/65/17 - $700
2.) Falken Rocky Mountain ATS 245/65/17 - $700 plus a $40 mail-in rebate = $660
3.) Cooper ATR 245/65/17 - $720 plus a $75 mail-in rebate = $645
4.) Firestone Destination AT 245/65/17 - $790
5.) BFG ATKO 245/70/17 - $910 plus a $50 mail-in rebate = $860

I was interested also in the General Grabber AT2 but they are not available. Which of these is the best deal or is there a different tire that I should be looking at? Or, should I wait till I'm back in Florida and wear the tires out more? Thanks all for the help!

Re: Need Some Tire Recommendations

Have you check these prices with those on www.TireRack.com?

Any Discount Tire, etc will price match(less the difference of shipping)
Saved me $40/tire

Re: Need Some Tire Recommendations

Yokohama ats -- quiet all terrain that really works

Cooper atr -- friend of mine had these on her tahoe and they seemed loud?

Hankooks are very popular


How much off roading do you do? If not much i would say get the general hts good in rain and ice if you go up north.

I have yoko ats on my wk. Very quiet and smoother ride than stock goodyears. Work well off road, in snow, wear well etc. They are usually pretty cheap too.

I actually went to Discount Tire for these prices. I've been shopping with Discount for years and will always go back to them. In Florida I drive 1.5 hours to get to the one closest to me. Just had the best experiences with them. I will, however, check tirerack.com and see what their prices are and if lower, I will see if they will price match.

Thanks for the info! As of right now I don't do any off roading as I live in Florida and don't want to gut stuck in the mud. Up in Michigan we go camping out in the woods. For future, I'm working on getting orders to Colorado Springs and should find out next week if I get to go. If I go, I'll be there guaranteed for 3 years so I was hoping for something with that. I'm in the military so we can move at any moment. I've been stationed in Florida for 2 years now and I'm trying to go somewhere else that we can do some minor off roading and camping. So that's my plan as of right now. Does this help out at all with the deciding factor? I just wanted something that had a nice look to it but also performed well. I can't have a lot of road noise as this is our road trip vehicle and my wife will kill me if there is a lot!

Nobody, however, said what they would do. Would you change tires now knowing that you only have 4/32's left on the front or would you wait till the wear bars show?

What size Destinations do you have? I can't seem to find a 245/65/17 on tirerack but I was quoted from Discount for them with a 245/65/17.

DISREGARD I FOUND THEM AT FIRESTONE DIRECT.
