    It was on eBay, I didn’t say where because there was only 1 set left and I wanted to snag it :rofl:

    He should be putting some more up again soon, the seller was wholesaleautomotive

    It’s worth being patient :thumbsup:

    Keep your eyes peeled on Amazon. I picked them up for just $204 each a few weeks ago, and that included FREE prime shipping.

    I know there's a ton of variables, bias not being insignificant, but I'm really torn on tires. I hear that the coopers pull on the highway, flat spot overnight, wear fast. Then I hear they are the best you can buy.

    I don't know if I should wait on the KM3 in 255, get the Maxx, or Pro. I want an aggressive tire, probably the bro in me, but I really only do mild trails and lots of sand.

    You sly dog.

    Out of curiosity, what are your guys’ local shops charging to mount and balance?

    I paid $24/tire. I've seen down to 16 locally.

    You can see my posts on the 6th page of this thread from when I first installed the Dick Cepeks, I now have over 10,000 miles on them. Still love them. They've never been stuck at Rausch creek and they are awesome on the road, no complaints. They are wearing down slowly and evenly, balance well, my wife even drives it every now and then.

    The ST is still a hell of a tire. I’ve run both previously, the ST and the STMaxx, and was very pleased with both. Performance wise I found them to be comparable Offroad, while the STMaxx was quiter and has better handling on road. My STMaxx did have the infamous right hand pull though.

    Pretty sure the ST is being phased out.

    @backcountryj is correct. The ST is discontinued. Which is a huge bummer because that is the tire I was going with as it is 8ply, only 47lbs and a true 33”.

    I just linked a set, go snag them! Lol
    If I would’ve known that I would have bought those instead... oh well

    @Professional Asian I am concerned that if I destroy one, I have no replacement to buy. Simple tire on eBay has 4 for $890 and one for $220. I planned to purchase 5, but not sure I want to own a discontinued tire with no way to replace one.

    Thinking of going a similar route

    8.5 is too wide, the maximum width is 8.
    You could stretch them, but that would look goofy and not be as safe off road lol.
