generic(cheap) but aggressive tread tires

i need some aggressive(good for winter and mud) tread tires for my passport (245/70R16) cheaper the better...

i've been searching like crazy and havent found what i'm looking for.. most tires i find are a weak tread design but cheap.. or a great tread design but are to much $$


point me to websites other than discount tire and tire rack.(already searched there)

EbAy maybe? I've bought tires off eBay and was pretty happy. Got a good deal on a set of 17" Goodyear 245/45 Eagles

I wouldn't know where to start looking for 'normal' tires. My truck and jeep both sit on 35x12.5x16.5....costs me a fortune to put new tires on a rig...

Try Pep Boys. They sell some that look just like the BFG Mud Terrains for cheap. They have them in sizes 28" and up if I remember correctly.

I bought a set of Liberator All Terrain tires from WalMart pretty cheap. My Suburban has 245/75R16 Load E tires, and I got out for about $400. They grab really good, and I've never had a problem. I've got about 30,000 miles on them and they're about half worn.

I have some Widetrack Baja m/t tires which i like. They where on the truck when i bought it, but ive seen them for sale at Theisens and i think they are pretty reasonable.

Occassionally Farm & Fleet will put Cooper All-Terrains on sale for about $80 a piece. I have had a set on my Jeep for 50,000 miles and still have good tread left, but I will probably replace them before winter. They are not super agressive, kind of a jack of all trades tire. Not great at anything, but good for almost anything - street, mild off-road, snow, etc.
