need 4 new tires
 
i need for new tires and these are the prices from my local dealer. what should i get? i do mostly highway driving and i live in the northeast so we get a decent amount of snow. any help would be appreciated.

All our tires are priced “Out the Door” which includes Free mounting, Free rubber valve stems, Free tire disposal, Free lifetime Nitrogen and Free lifetime tire balancing and rotations.

General Grabber HTS FTMFW!!!!

Check out the reviews on tirerack... It's the top rated tire at like 99%!!!! And it's only $120ish.

Night and day difference coming from the factory Goodyears. Night and day.

I put Cooper Discoverer M/S back on mine. They are true rated snow tires. They ride smooth and quiet. Paid $600.00 for everything. They pull better than any other tire I have ever had on snow and ice.

so this is a bad price for them? most of my local places do not have online pricing, this is the only one i found and i am not buying tires from sams club again.

The Generals that you have listed there are the UHP's (not the HTS's). Not sure about those, but I think a member here said they were great. Maybe want to search around.

I would go with the Yokohama Parada spec x. Seems to be a good street tire that claims to ahve good snow traction.

best bet is go to www.tirerack.com and search your jeep and tire size and read the ratings and reviews.

I've heard the bridgestone dueler a/t revo's are the way to go. They got great reviews. Buy them online & have you're local shop install. About $165.00/each. Looking into them myself.

I fitted 4 x General Grabber AT2's and they work brilliantly on the road, being very quiet and refined for a tyre with such an aggresive tread

Consider them a perfect choice for my WK and handled the recent snow very well
