I am holding out on putting new plates on my Toyota untill I get a new set of tires put on it and I dont know which tire I should get.

I just want a decent all terrain in a 235/75/R15. Off road traction doesnt have to be fantastic as it is my daily driver so tread life and lug slapping are my biggest concerns. My budget will be around $450-$650

Also, what is a good, honest tire shop in the Okanagan area?

with that kind of budget i would look at costco or canadian tire or something used. even a set of new mall terrains in that size at a tire shop will start at like 800.

Dans Tire, by far the best service ive had. They even have a bunch of good used tires.

Rubber = oil, prices have gone up quite a bit.
I just got some new michelin all terrains, also $1150 incl. tax.
Good tires though, far better then old michelin all terrains. Especially in the rain they do very well.
The new line came out last year I think.

I'm partial to the Toyo A/T myself, the 235/75/15 comes in both P rater and LT.....got them in a 31x10.50 on my Heep, 20% remain and yet they still grip like no tomorrow on the trails when I did take it out.

I run the Interco Trxus STS (all terrain radial) on my Daily Driver Samurai and they perform much better than the BFG AT's on and off road they come in a 29" (actually 29.5") x 15 x 10.5. The other bonus with the STS is they make for a decent snow tire, they are fairly quiet and don't really seem to hydroplane like my old tires did. If you already have rims you may be able to stay within your budget if you shop around a bit.

I'd go w/ a BFG All-Terrain or a BFG Mud Terrain, you'll spend about a grand but they have a good wear life

Interco doesn't know how to make a round tire [16]

id go with the MT's as once you buy all terrains you wish you will have bought the mud tires

AGT Automotive (250-491-9118, on Campion Rd) has a great selection of tires and his prices are the best I found (beat Fountain, Kal & Cavell hands down). He carries the Grabber's (made by Continental) which are getting better reviews than bfg mall terrains. As well Toyo, BFG, and lots of other other brands.

[stupid] but living in K-town and it being his daily, the AT would be great for snowy and icy roads, plus less road noise. Just don't go in the mud w/ them.

my 2 cents

had a set of 31" roughrider mt`s from crappy tire, they were 600 bucks unmounted, i had just bought them for my vi but i auctually ended up keeping them for almost a year, wheeling them quite a bit, there not too bad of a tire, not much road noise, did pretty good on the rocks, and were auctually pretty good in the snow, kinda had a similar tread pattern to the geolander at`s,
