Seriously.  Buy a tire from a quality name brand manufacturer.  You can easily find decent tires relatively cheap.

If you have time could you link me some suggestions please? I have ran Falken several times but have had bad experience with hydroplaning.

How about Nexen? Currently I have Hankook I don't really care for them much but it could also be the line my first time running them.

I had some Falkens on an old stang.  They weren't bad, but I'd spend my money elsewhere.  Of the cheap brands, Falken, HAnkook, and Kuhmo would be the only ones I look at.  I myself am a Michellin snob, so I tend to go that route, but Goodyear Bridgestone/Firestone, BFG, Pirelli, General, Nitto, all offer great choices.

Dunlop

Bridgestone

Continental

Michelin

Perelli 

Yokohama 

Those guys all make good tires.  I'm sure some make junk too.  Gotta look into it.  My tires are usually 200-400 each.

19s are bad.  18 or 20 opens up the options a ton.  400 for 19s means used

I can attest to 19" rims meaning especive tires.

 

But the rubber on Hegla is almost as wide as the 3rd leg.

I think the folks Enclave came with factory 19s, I think it gets Michelin tires at 265 a piece.   He's had great luck with them.

Btw, between Ryan & Matt all the tire manufacturers that actually have viable engineering centers were listed.  The most advanced one by far is Continental, but others on the list do well also.

I kinda wish I would have kept those raccoons babies for pets..Never had a pet raccoon before..Being from Tennessee I have about had everything else.. Customers about had a stroke today when I pet their neighbors German Shepard and Pitbull through the fence..They seemed real vicious but if you approach them the right way most of the time animals will not attack almost for sure when they see your not a threat..But Raccoons are hard to domesticate.

Would you guys think 50 series tires would be to tall for 19's on this blazer after being dropped down a few inches in front and maybe 4"in the rear? Or should I drop to 45 series or 40? Not trying to deal with to bad of rubbing issues.
