I have to choose between Uniroyal Laredo Cross Country and Goodyear Tracker 2 tires for my Explorer. Aside from the 50k warranty for the Goodyear vs. the 60k for the Uniroyal, I don't see much difference. However, the Uniroyal will be $80 more for the set of 4. Where can I go to get a recommendation on which is better?

Patty Streeter,  at AskPatty.com Tire Rack provides great user tire reviews and is also a great place to buy your tires! Go here: http://www.tirerack.com click on the tire reviews tab: Here is one review on the Uniroyal : Tire has worn fine over 43000 miles. Cant keep them balanced - a nice and annoying shimmy at 50 mph just to make your morning commute more interesting. Dry and Wet traction is fine. Standing water scares me and the slightest snow or ice requires 4wd to even move. Forget mud... They dont track and you cant even get them spinning in a direction that helps... These are just an inexpensive tire - nothing outstanding here... --Review submitted: 2006-10-17 Many Goodyear review go to Tire rack to read them and make an educated decision.
