Default Can get a deal on a Tires. Thoughts?

I can get a set of New, Nitto Dune Grapplers 315/70/17 for 800 bucks. Do I get these or better off paying more for a Terra Grapp, Mickey ATZ, Pro Comp AT?

I'm not a fan of the dune grapplers... BUT.. I would NOT touch the pro comp AT's. I had a very bad experience, and will not ever buy a pro comp product again.

I went to the local Discount Tire last month & looked at wheels & tires
I found out that the prices are not set in stone, to get a sale they will reduce the prices
i was first told a price for the wheels & i got $25 off each wheel

it pays to shop around

I just got the Mickey thompson ATZ tires not too long ago anf they are a pretty cheap which is alright. I am in Canada and the price I got the Mickys for was a great deal.

I love the tire it was very good on the street. They had a little noise since I have the 35/13.5/20 tires. The lugs were pretty big and the noise was pretty low for the size they were. I have heard some tires that are unbeaarable.

Did some other research and I don't think the Dune Grapplers are for me.

The Dune Grapplers are a very soft tire.They might last you 30k miles.I would get the Trail grapplers if i were you.They are a very good tire.I have them on my truck and I lovem!!These tires are not loud at all for them being a MT tire.

i had a set of Terra Grapplers and thought they were good. lasted about 45kmiles..
they got a little rough and loud toward the end though..
I'm thinking of going with them again, or the trail grapplers, anyone have any experience with both? I like the looks of the trail grapplers, but I'm worried they will be a lot louder than the Terra Grapplers were?
