Cheap/Good Original Size Tires

Does anyone have any recommendations for CHEAP but OK quality original size tires? Has anyone ever tried the Fuzion brand? Thanks

I spent about $600 on a set of four Firestone Destination A/T's.

They are better than the Fortera's for offroad and were excellent in the mud and snow I drove in while on our trip to Colorado.

Check conversion shops in your area. They have a few in my area. you can get a set of stock tires with little or no mileage on them for almost nothing

Send a message via Yahoo to a49erFan
You might even find a set of dealer take offs at your local dealer.

I define Cheap as $150 or less for a tire. I don't need a giant mudder or summer/winter tire. Just an all season which won't blow up as I ride down the highway.
