Went for new Rubber at Les Scwab wanted 275x65xR18 Maxxis Buckshots, but they told me they were back ordered 6 months. WTF! Then they offered me the Bighorn's and I said OK, but only in the 10 ply version. They replied that they could only get the 8 ply. Finally they agreed to look again and only after I was going to walk and go somewhere else did they all of a sudden come up with the 10 ply which they claimed to have found in California.
Is Maxxis having a hard time keeping up with demand or was this some ploy by the dealer to soak me for the shipping costs?
Out the door ~$1,400+ seems a little much to me.
