tires


STERLING STINGER

Recommended Posts

Just checked the TireRack link, those Yokohamas are out of stock. Just for yucks, I chose another brand of tire, just to get the shipping quote, and it would cost over $100 just for shipping. So IF they had a set of 4 of those Yokos in stock, it would cost roughly $625 to get a set of 4 delivered to me. Then I'd have to spend probably another $80-$100 to get them mounted/balanced, which would push the "on the rim" price to around $700.

 

Still think a set of Goodyear Wrangler Authority's from WalMart is a great deal. Those tires in that size (31x10.50) are $130 each, and they'll mount, balance, new valve stems, road hazard, and tire disposal for about $18/tire. So that would be less than $600 for a set of 4 on the rim, with a road hazard warranty. If i didn't get such a good deal on these Firestone Destination AT's, I would've gotten a set of Goodyears from WM...

We have retreads in a P235/75R15 very much like these on the skid steer at work.

 

 

but i think I'm getting these

I got these http://www.4wd.com/productdetails.aspx?jeep-sid=163&plID=0&partID=14747# and so far (one wheeling trip in 12+" of snow, ice, breaking ice, water and mud) have been very pleased with them. But after shelling out nearly $900 for 4 tires including mounting and balancing, I'd better be pleased.

I didn't pay much more than that at a local shop in town for my new BFG AT's ,

 

No charges for mounting and disposal or stems . I got the wheels as a package deal with the rims .

 

Do your research , haggle a couple of shops in town and find the best price .

 

Always take other shops quotes with you and show them the paperwork . rtft.gif

 

Most shops will either try to match or beat the deal to get your business . :cheers:

New tires are so overpriced. :( I only buy gently-used tires. Sets of 4 for 200 or so are not uncommon. my 4k mile 33" trxus were 300 and came with rims (the wrong rims for my ford axles, but that's beside the point). :D

 

 

For new tires, shopping around and haggling is the only way to get a good deal. There's an outrageous markup on these things, so it's not that hard to save a hundred bucks or more. :thumbsup:
