    Depends on finances, if you can afford it you could get different ones and sell your current tires. What do you have now?

    Try getting your tires siped if you have any tread left. Your tires will grip better on wet/icy roads and they may even last longer.

    Dune grapplers look good on anything! And why would he want to sype his current tires? they wont stick to the road any better. The only time I would sype a tire is if it was going to be an offroad only tire. hard to balance and you don't know exactly how close you're getting to those belts. hit a belt - tire's junk.

    I bet you could sell those pro comps easy if there's any tread left.
    Craigslist it!

    Dune grapplers are a SAND tire. They are good for sugar pow beaches and crap for most else. Do you drive on the east coast beaches or pismo alot?

    It doesn't get good reviews.
    But if you are strictly after COOL(questionable) looks then they might be perfect. You'll need a lame poser Affliction T-shirt to go with them though, It is required.
    A good all around ALL Terrain tire works best in all conditions. BFG TA/KO

    the goodyear wrangler silent armour is a good at tire, that is quiet on the road and has a 50000 mile warranty. i had them on my truck before lifting and was happy with them. got stuck once in the snow but the tread was pretty low at that point. if you are doing mostly street driving these will be good tires.
