    My g/f needs new tires for her ride. Something in 31x10.5x15. The catch is she only has a $100 a tire budget for tires but of course she wants more expensive ones. She wants a more agressive styled tire but probably does not need a full out mud tire, as this is a driver not a wheeler. She will be driving in a multitude of conditions with a lot of snow,ice and a fair amount of highway. So I like to keep radial. I have been looking at cooper discovers for her as I owned them in the past and had pretty good luck Any input is appreciated

    Wal- mart is the cheapst place I know of to buy tires. They carry BFG, Goodyear, Uniroyal ect, I'm sure they can get you into a set of 10.50x 33s for under a hundred dollars each. They have full road hazzard including sidewall warentee.
    I have been buying tires from them lately. And I have no complaints.
    If you are interested in online tires this place has very good prices. Blazer pics

    Go to either Discount Tire or America's Co and check out the Mud King Tires... there's no way she's gonna get a set of tires for $100 unless they are used, and most likely very abused... I bet she can get a set of 4 new Mud Kings mounted, balanced with a warrenty for $250.... that's a good deal when you think about it.....

    Kumho Muds 33x12.5x15 $95 each. Everything I've been able to find about these tires says they're good tires.

    BTW I've seen the 35x12.50s advertised for $113 each

    I don't know what Pro Comp Muds run, but if they are still doing that buy 3 get one free thing that might be the way to go. I saw the Procomps in action this weekend, and they worked well. If I weren't a die hard BFG guy I might consider them for my truck.

    My Chevy isn't broken, its just out of gas.

    I second the Pep Girls approach. They have an A/T and a M/T, both made by Cooper that are very inexpensive. I have used a set of the A/T's and they are really good. In 31", you're probably looking at $70 or less.
