HELP! Getting Tires after work are these okay?
 
Hello All!

Havent posted in a while been incredibly busy with school, work and just life.

I need/want new tires.

I have a appt after work to have the
General Grabber HTS 245 65 17 installed.

The current stock tire is GoodYear Wrangler Hp 235 65 17

I am getting 4 tires and mount/balance blah blah all for about 580 (including tax)

I have the following questions:
1) Is this a good price?
2) Is this a good tire? (Yes I have used the search feature already!)
3) Will moving up to 245 be better for driving/handling?

Any and ALL advice comments would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank You!

I bought those about a month ago and paid 620.00 installed. They are much better than the stock Goodyears. I don't know about the change in size as mine came with 245's from the beginning.

that's a good price for those tires and yes they are real good ... might want to check tirerack.com they have some extensive user ratings on there that can help you determine if they are good ...

Tirerack had great prices, but then shipping, install, tax didnt seem all that good. Just for fun I called a local place and just asked and they offered me that price

After everyones blessings, I went to get them installed on lunch break...
def fills up wheel well a tiny bit better, the drive feels ALOT better, and tires are ALOT less noisy. I never knew how much diff. a tire could make.

Tires can make a huge difference. Changing mine made it feel like a different Jeep.
I've heard good things about these tires. Good choice and enjoy them!
