    Gotta buy these frickin 17" tires.....

    If I drove with my foot off the pedal anymore, I'd be getting shot at..... It's kind of funny driving something that you know sucks gas thinking you can get it to do better.

    Gotta buy these frickin 17" tires.....

    Absolutely loving the tires with the exception of worse gas mileage. I guess that's to be expected of a new tire being heavier and with more contact patch. It rides totally awesome and is very quiet up to 70mph. After 70 you do notice them, but they aren't howling or anything. I was...

    2005 XLT 4.0 with 40k miles for $12k -- deal or no deal? Or get a Grand Cherokee?

    Ford did make the most updates in the 2005 model. I good long time friend of mine has been a service advisor at Ford for over 10 years. When I recently bought my 2004, he recommended the 2005. I just couldn't find one. That is a decent deal depending on what options it has. I was a service...

    Gotta buy these frickin 17" tires.....

    I just made my decision. I called an old friend at a Firestone dealer. He got me the Destination A/T's for $580 installed plus tax with lifetime rotation and balances. They would have cost me $560 shipped at the cheapest place online. It pays to know someone in the tire business once in a...

    Gotta buy these frickin 17" tires.....

    I'm also wondering if I could go with a 255/65/17 and get a little better ride. Not sure how much it would throw off my speedometer or if there would be any clearance issues.

    Gotta buy these frickin 17" tires.....

    I'll have to ask them, didn't think about that as they aren't listed on their site. As far as Coopers go, I have a hard time paying the same money for them as Toyo's or Yokohamas. The ones I sold didn't wear very well or very long and I haven't read consistently good reviews on these online...

    Gotta buy these frickin 17" tires.....

    I really like Discount Tire and the way they do business, but the only tire they have that I am considering is the Yokohama Geolander HT/S or AT/S. So many of the other places prices are insanely higher than Tread Depot and Online Tires.

    Gotta buy these frickin 17" tires.....

    I wish I could find a local dealer to match tread depot's prices on Toyos. Discount has the Geolander AT's. I'm not beyond ordering tires though, I've done it before.

    Gotta buy these frickin 17" tires.....

    Well, I just bought my 04 Explorer EB Saturday and I knew it needed tires. I thought I had scored a set of 16" 02-05 Explorer wheels until I went to look at them. I really had planned on that working out and buying new 16" tires and getting a much better ride out of it. I remember driving the...

    What's up folks

    Just bought a 2004 Explorer EB 4x4 with 50k on it this past Saturday. My wife required I replace our Town and Country with something that had a third row seat. I was between the Trailblazer/Envoy, Pilot, and Explorer. I will say I almost bought the Pilot, but it sold the day before I called...
