They are a good looking tire and people seem to like them. My experience (years ago) with General tires agrees with Roma, but things change. Ron

I would go with the Hankook MT if price is that big of an issue. Next ones I would recommend would be Nitto Terra Grapplers (8 ply) as I can get them locally for around 185 each... Then look at Kumho MT KL71........all are cheaper than BFG and I venture that the Nitto are a better all around tire than the BFG AT. Cant speak for Hankook and Kumho mudders but my brother has the Kumho MT and love them...

For price, you could try Mickey Thompson MTX. I got mine for $145 each. I've had Generals and had no problem with them. The Mickey Thompsons have a tough sidewall.

oh trust me if i had the cash for the hankooks or bfgs or even the revos (these are the ones i want) id have em but the generals fit into my pathetically small budget

the mickeys are about $50 more per tire than the generals and at 136 a tire i can grab the revos that i want the fj is my daily driver and here in la and needs to not effect my fuel to bad or my road handling

What are you going to be using the tires for? 100% highway? 50-50? And what size tire? Stock size? Whats your budget?

just to drop a couple web sites

Edge Racing - Home
Auto tires, bridgestone tires, firestone tires, hankook tires, carlisle tires, cooper tires, fuzion tires

I ordered hankooks from edgeracing for about 160ish a piece, but I bought 5 285's. Good tire and not that much road noise from them. If you buy 4 I think the price is like 150 a piece for the size you want. Barley fits in your budget of 600 and a pretty decent all around good tire. I live in Florida, but I hear they perform well in snow.

It's going to be hard to find tires to fit a 17" wheel for cheap. 16" wheel price are so much cheaper in some cases. Hope those websites help ya out.

Take care

Yeah 16" wheel and tire combo is the way to go for less expensive tires for sure....Definitely in my plan book. I had Hankooks a couple years ago and was not the least bit impressed with the way they wore. I got $40 a piece out of them on trade for Sport Kings.....Sport Kings were cheaper and were twice the tire IMO.

Check out the yokohama Geolander A/T-S. I was quoted $715 for 5 tires at American Tire Depot in Bellflower and $725 at America's Tire in Artesia.
