    Just picked up some BFG All-Terrain KOs. Love them. I spent all day at the tire shop getting them installed. I was there for five hours before they could get them on. I'll post pics in the morning when I wake up.

    Yeah, mine took 45 minutes to take off my old tires and throw the BFG's on. Balanced fine as far as I know.

    Yeah when I got to the shop he told me it would be like 2-3 hours since I didn't have an appointment. So I dropped the truck and went to the mall. After a little bit there I go back and my truck has never moved. It has been like 2.5 hours so I ask him how much longer and he tells me that I am 2nd in line. Well another 2.5 hours later my truck is finally finished and I am late for work. Lucky for me no one cares whether I am late for work.

    How does that feel? You're a "nobody" at work. :D J/K

    Yeah dude that's ridiculously long. The most I've been told was 2.5 hours but it never really took that long. And it's always been the one that's near a store/mall where everyone drops there vehicles off for new tires.
