    1.)BFGoodrich?
    2.)Falken?
    3.)Fuzion?
    4.) and if i can get some at a good price Yokohama or Toyo?

    I have bought 2 sets of tires from there.

    Oh and, currently I have Nitto Neo-Gen tires that are 205/50/16. They are nice and sticky. Good in the rain too. No real wear report for them yet. Mine have just about 5000 miles on them and I am about to rotate, so get ready for a report, maybe.

              i've bought several tires from ebay.. never had a problem.. good product and prices.

              i normally stay away from stuff on ebay, but run flats are the same rather they come from a local tire store or from a tire store in cali selling them on ebay

                      get some BFG G force sports. They're a REALLY good tire. that's what i have now. very predictable handling, they give a planted feel.

                        Tbrizzle,

                        I cheaped it and bought some 215/45/17 Nankang NS-1's on sale from discouttiredirect.com and they grip surprisingly well in the wet granted I've only put about 1000 miles on them since I bought em in Oct but they are very grippy and I am pleased esp. after having spent only $218 shipped for the set with the 3yr replacement warranty. I don't really worry about snow performance cuz that's what the Expedition is for.

                          how is it you got a 3 yr replacement warranty? doens't it go by mileage? so like 30K miles maybe?
