Looking to purchase new all season tires

Hello-

I'm looking to purchase all season tires to replace my Nitto 420's. I'm thinking about going with Toyo ST II's 275/40/20 315/35/20. How do the Nitto's stack up to the Toyo's? Any other suggestions, comments? Cheapest vendor to purchase from?

Thanks for your help.

Brian

I too need new tires very VERY badly lol.
From what I've heard it's a better idea to get a set of winter tires and a set of summer tires, instead of going with allseason. In on this for some more info.

I've heard a lot of praise over the Nitto Motivos. They're all season for about 1K and have a limited treadwear warranty up to 60K. Can't beat that. I'm going to purchase these once I get the money to replace my crapyears.

The local Discount Tire quoted me $930 installed on the Motivos a few weeks ago. But since I dont drive much in the winter, I went with Vreds. You might also want to take a look at Atturos.

I have the TOYO's and really like them! They get really great traction and drive nice...

Although, I may not be putting down enough power to really worry about traction haha...
