Goodyear makes a "house brand" called Star. The trail buster d/t and m/s are both quite aggressive and a 285 is probably around the 125$ range for those (I think the d/t only goes up to 265). They are one of our most popular economy 4x4 tires. My shop is basically new england only, but a goodyear shop may have them...Not sure on that one.

Buckshot mudders have been around for years...Those probably don't go too steep pricewise these days..

Cooper (We dont sell cooper...but a house brand called Dean) is also one I'd look into.


I would serioulsy reccomend saving up for a Bfg. I run them on my trucks and have been extremely impressed...in my opinion (and that of the rest of the shop I work for), the all terrain is the best light truck tire you can buy. It will outdo many mud terrains in the cheaper price bracket. Mud terrains are a little more expensive but a much more purpose oriented tire...they chop a bit but not that bad for a offroad tire.

I have something you might be interested in. I have a set of four Cooper Discoverer A/T 285/75/R16s with about 2000 miles on them. They are on stock GMC rims, balanced and ready to mount. I am really looking to sell the wheels and tires together. They aren't a mud grip but are a good AT type tire. Look here:

If you are interested let me know.
