I picked up a 98 explorer xlt, with 13k original miles on it, for 2500 dollars. Deal of my life so far Of course being a Rochester NY car, the underside got some rust , so I am replacing drivers cat and back this week. As this truck has the ORIGINAL TIRES still on it. I am concerned about dry rot. What tires are you guys finding are best year round? As stated I live in Rochester NY , so snow is a huge part of our year.
