2 questions. Tires and about oil change.

Howdy Fellas

I need to get some new tires for my truck. Any suggestion for a place online? I usually buy my stuff from tirerack.com and the tires I run on my van are Michelin ATX A/S Size: 245/75RR16 and I can get them for $160 a piece and to ship 2 tires its $45 so $365.00 to get 2 of them shipped to me.
I plan to call around locally to see if I can get them cheaper. Any suggestions?

Also
I plan on changing my oil and filter soon. Anything special to do then besides jus draining the pan and changing the filter? first tiem doing it on this truck and motor.

I am gonna use Rotella T 15w40 I use 15 qts of oil right? Also using the motorcraft oil filter fl-1995.

Thanks!

That is a tough price to beat for that particular tire. I see a lot of nice tires that size for less though and I think they are LTX not ATX

And the oil change is pretty straight forward nothing special to do.
