Wheel and tire package

The time is coming for me to buy tires for the truck and I'm considering buying wheels as well. If there is anyone out there that knows of a good site (price as well as reputation) to buy wheel and tire packages I would be interested in hearing about them. I'm leaning towards staying with 20" and the XD Rockstar or Monster, and a tire with a semi-aggressive pattern (possibly the Cooper Discoverer HT Plus or something similar). Any info on sites with wheels for a decent price would be appreciated. And I don't necessarily have to buy them as a package. Thanks in advance.

Shop carefully. Tire Rack sells the packages, but you'll probably not save that much by the time you pay shipping, installation and taxes. There is considerable value in buying local, both for you and the vendor.

Anyone have experience with Bridgestone Revo 2's? I found a $70 coupon for a set of 4 and was thinking about going with the Revos.

I put a set of 285/70 Revo 2s on in September, '09 to replace some Bridgestone Alenzas that probably lasted 50K or more. Great grip wet and dry and they're quiet. They'll dry-rot before I wear 'em out (21K in four years). They're wearing well, getting rotated every 6K.

Had the tyre problem a few months back and finally after much procrastination purchased a set of 20in Cooper Zeons. Glad i did. Almost zero road noise. Still our roads are much different here than in America.

tui, Just noticed something,

Your avatar picture is pretty small but, if I am reading it right, the sign in the backround appears to say "TUI HQ". Am I correct?

What does "tui" mean?
