I'm looking at some tires and it seems hard to get a decent set without spending over $1000. It would be helpful if anybody does work at a tire dealer or has some kind of connection to help not only me, but all of us out if possible. Even if it's $25 a tire cheaper, that's $100 off total cost or free shipping; anything to help us out a little. I think we'd all love to save a little money, so it's just an idea.

Good luck
Yeah, I know it's a losing battle to try to find a great deal on anything. I was just hoping one of us members had some kind of hookup that could possibly help all of us out. But yes, that's what I've been doing, looking online. I've noticed that the ones that look like good deals end up hitting you pretty hard when it comes to shipping. So that "deal" that is "cheaper" than the competition ends up coming up about the same with shipping included. The ones with free shipping usually end up with better deals.

Like I said to Idaholandho, I was just hoping someone could hook us up with some kind of deal; maybe they work at a tire dealer and can get them for us at cost or closer to cost.

I have learned a few things in looking lately: like looking for free shipping, buy the cheaper online price and pickup in the store (no shipping fee), etc. Price matching is also a plus if you can find someone who also ships for free. Double up the money saved with price match and the money saved of free shipping. Right now I'm working on a deal with discount tire. I found the 295 Hankooks I wanted on a site for $167 (like $60 cheaper than most other places), but their shipping costed $150. So theirs turned out about the same as if I bought them in the store at regular price. So I got on discounttiredirect.com, found them for $232 apiece, and then clicked the "did you find these cheaper?" link. I filled out some stuff including the link to the same tires for $167, my email, blah blah, blah, and they are supposed to review it. I am hoping they will match this price, because they declare to not be beat on price. If I get the price matched and get the free shipping, which is standard on discounttiredirect.com, I will end up saving over $400 compared to buying it online and paying shipping.

No affiliation. But a good operation nonetheless

Yep, we all know that. And yeah, I've been looking for the past few months. Even posted a few wanted ads, all the responses I've gotten were some shitty, no-name, bald ass tires, haha. I've tried about every route to save any extra money that I can. My grand-dad has a discount on Goodyear tires because he worked for them for 40+yrs, but I don't really like Goodyears. Just seeing if you guys had any other tricks up your sleeve to save some cash. Looks like that's about it though.

I hear you. I just installed 4 sets of them on some of my work trucks, to field test them. so far so good, but they've only been in use for a short time. They're made a little different that truck retreads. Apparently, they go through more inspections than a brand new tire... there's a good chance you'll have a defective new tire blowout before these ever will.

I was hesitant too, but after reading literally 100s of good reviews on them I bit the bullet. I want to put them on the taco next time I'm due, unfortunately they dont make a 255/85... might have to go to 285/75.

I plan on doing a full write-up on here once they hit 10,000 miles, and start tracking them from there on.

If it was a farm truck or something that didn't get on pavement much, I'd be more inclined. But in these 100+ degree Georgia summers, I just would always have it on my mind. Especially on longer drives. Like you said, they probably aren't any more dangerous than a new tire, but my luck, I'd be the guy that had 4 simultaneous blowouts, roll over the median into oncoming traffic, and all that shit, lol. But seriously, they probably alright, I just wouldn't ever completely be comfortable with them. Maybe after your writeup I'll be convinced.

Have you personally tried re-treads?

tacosupreme54, I researched re-treads from treadwright.com for months before I purchased them. I couldn't find any bad review other than the very few idiots who heard from there second uncle's friends acquaintance that they are vulnerable to blowing up, so to say. I've had my re-treads on for thousands of miles with ZERO problems. I asked treadwright specifically to use the original casings so you really can't tell the difference unless you know what to look for. Anyway, after all said and done my treadwright bfg all terrains cost me $540.00 mounted and balanced.
