91 GW Tire Selection

I have the breaking bad GW .... the tires are messed up (i didnt want to swap them but sort of bald and not even same brand).

So now I am trying to figure out what to buy. I am not lifting, off roading etc.

I like the classic wagonmaster look:

https://wagonmaster.com/collections/...2019-available

but since there are not white walls on the show ..think i have to go black wall (like since there is no hood ornament on the show - I am not not fixing that).

So what brand do the wagonmaster folks use?

I am tempted to go with BF Goodrich All Terrain black wall out but that might be a bit beefy for the look im going for. Yet the tires on the show are not the classic wagonmaster or all terrain.

Thoughts?

for a cheaper tire
that is still a decent tire
get Goodyear wrangler if you want a more 4x4 looking tire that is not very aggressive.

or really any brand of radial road tire
will prob be fine,...

the less aggressive the tread,... usually the cheaper the tire.

and in my opinion
leaving the car just as is as far as paint, interior etc.
is the thing to do to make it more desirable to another breaking bad fan down the road if you ever want to sell,
leaving it as it appeared on screen will retain its appeal to collectors in my opinion
although I never saw an episode, know it was popular, and Brian Cranston is one hell of an actor
that was evident when he appeared on king of queens years ago in a few episodes.

letank's comment reminded me,....

I have a set of cooper trendsetter whitewalls on a 1988 wagoner
and they ride really good.

Previous set was Bridgestone Duellers A/T
Current set is Firestone Destination A/T. I've bene pretty satisfied for both pavement and gravel/dirt.
235/75R15

One thing that's worth mentioning considreing your location is snow. These are M+S but IIRC don't have the new ice/snow snowflake. Yes the selectrac automatics are really good with snow, and snow on pavement. Its turning and braking that still needs a ton of caution.
